Today’s increasingly wireless world has been slowly creeping in on businesses as well as social interactions. It’s becoming more and more common to free workers from the traditional counter or check-out area and let them roam stores and restaurants while taking the ability to receive payments with them. Even if you are looking for a used POS system, there are plenty of options available that will let you free your staff and lots of benefits to doing so.
Going Fully Mobile
There are newer, more advanced systems that will take your POS software everywhere your workers are, while some older models of Verfione card readers have the functionality to process payments and then later on sync up to your more comprehensive software. The benefit of going fully mobile is that you can cut down on the possibilities of connection issues and also have all sales data immediately at your fingertips. But, there is an expense to these systems and those businesses with smaller volumes or tighter budgets might find that choosing a used POS system with some mobile capabilities is the best option for their store.
Benefits of Mobile
On a basic level, mobile systems provide all of the same benefits as a regular POS system. They will still provide receipts (although more and more this can be done via email, cutting down on your need to even stock receipt paper or the need for a thermal printer) keep track of inventory, and take payments. But they offer a lot that can help your business grow and give you more time to move product. Anyone who has been in Apple store can easily see the benefits of mobile POS systems. Roaming sales staff that can also take payments cuts down on long check- out lines, and even if customers have to wait a while to catch the attention of a staff member in order to pay for their items, they’re still doing so in the store. This gives them more time to browse, and you more opportunities to make sales. Mobile really is the wave of the future, so as we move into a New year it might be the perfect time to think about updating your POS system. Even outfitting it with a step towards completely mobile will help to modernize your business and give you an edge that others might be missing out on.
