Posted by Olivia Jackson on April 24th, 2019

For Choosing the right PoS, follow these steps:-

STEP1- Analyze your Business

In this step we help you recognize the needed functions, features, and services that you use to run your business. Also will analyze the important stuff like your customer relationship management, checkout process, and inventories needed.

STEP2- Select the Required Hardware

Some systems needs you to buy hardware, others work on your existing equipment, and some others still only need an iPad or laptop.  Here you should help us to identify which will be right for you?

STEP 3- Set a budget.

The costs of POS systems vary, depending on the size of your business and the capabilities you require. For traditional desktop-based software, a single-user software license comes with a price tag ranging from ,200 to ,500.

STEP 4- Audit and compare POS systems.

 You can talk to other retailers in your industry about their POS system and ask inquire how it’s working for them. Make an online search and have a peak on the websites of various POS vendors. You can also turn to social media like LinkedIn. Commence a discussion on suitable groups and ask your fellow merchants about POS solutions that they suggest and why.

STEP 5- set-up right PoS

Now you’ve chosen a POS vendor and you now have all the necessary software and equipment in front of you. At this moment it’s time to get your new system up and running. By this time your POS vendor have provided instructions on how to properly install and set-up the system but when in uncertainty, talk to your vendor about how to do it.

STEP 7- Make the best of your POS system.

Once you have your latest POS system up and running, it’s time to find ways to make the best of it.  You can look into add-ons, apps or hardware that can upgrade your POS and make your life easier.
