Can Point of sale system help a business grow?
Many businessmen have increasingly misjudged its power and importance to their businesses. Oftentimes, these pos machines and software are judged by its price. However, they fail to evaluate pos softwares about their features because businessmen focuses on one damaging factor; THE PRICE.
There is a huge misconception. Do you want to know what are these? Here are some misconceptions that people oftentimes associate with the point of sale system:
- POS are expensive
- Hard to use
- Time consuming
- For computer literate people only
- Point of sale system is for big companies only
- It is an expense. What??
If you believe in some of these, then YOU HAVE BEEN DECEIVED! Have you ever tried to identify which part of your operation needs more attention?
You got it right! Can you monitor all these almost instantly? Well, if you’re not using point of sale system then YOU CANNOT!
When it comes to your inventory, can you tell anyone which one of your products needs a re-stocking immediately? Well, we are definite that you’ll answer no to that. We have heard so much about this. What if I tell you that a pos system greatly helps businesses grow just by helping them think what to do next? Amazing right? Yes it is true. If you want your business to grow, you’ll need a robot. Did we say ROBOT? Yes, a pos machine is your robot helping you to think and decide. Cool? That’s not all. It’s just one of its feature.
Let’s go ahead and talk about your sales. How many minutes or hours would you take if you will count all the sales you’ve made in a day? Can you do that in just few seconds doing manual? Oh my, we’re about to tell you that you cannot. I haven’t heard in a long time that someone told me that they can do that in 15 minutes. Yes 15 minutes is a crazy time if you can do that fast. But, here’s the thing. Using a point of sale will only use seconds of your time to tell you how much you’ve sold on a single day. Wait what? Seconds? Compare with the crazy 15 minutes? We will tell you, you cannot do all your sales report in 15 minutes. That is why we say “crazy 15 minutes”. No one can do that, unless you just have few transactions.
We are still not talking about 2 days sales. How about a week? Let’s take it to a month? Or a year? Well, with a pos system, you call do all these in maximum time of 1 minute. Oh my gosh! You have to see it right now! You will save a lot of time plus, you can dedicate all your manpower in serving your customers well without having to think about your reports. Just key in your sales into your machine and boom! You’re done.
Are we done talking now? Wait, we’re not yet done. Do you buy goods from your suppliers? Do you remember all your due dates from your purchases? We think not. Why not let your robot do all these stuff? On every period, you can ask our system on what are the purchases due on each period. Don’t sniff through your delivery receipts. There are tons of papers in your office and who knows? You might have lost some of these already. Let the point of sale system work for you.
Do we need to talk more about the receivables? Well, it does the same as the payables if you have credit sales. If not, you’re now good to go and get your business a pos system.
Is a POS system expensive now?
How many minutes or hours do you need to use to complete your reports? How many hours do you pay everyday for your employee’s overtime just to finish the reports you wanted? How many hours do you drive to your store everyday just to check these reports? Not to mention if you are multi branch. Sum all that, salaries and time is more expensive than the point of sale system.
Is it complicated yet?
You’ve got to be kidding. POS systems are operated using keyboard, oftentimes you complete a transaction in just few actions. Plus, you don’t even have to remember every prices and every items you sell. The system does it for you and your employees. If you are on a trading business like a supermarket or similar, you may just leverage barcode scanners to quickly enter the items that your customers are buying. And with just a few key strokes, your cashier can finalize the payment without computing all the totals. Plus, you served your customer well by saving their time as well. It’s a win-win for you and your customer. Wait your employee won too! The POS system saved their time too. Now it’s not complicated.
Many people say it is time consuming. Well, it could. Really. But when? It will be time consuming when you first setup your point of sale. But after that, woah, everything is too fast that you might enjoy using a pos system like facebook.

While point of sale systems help business owners from small, medium and large enterprises, systems like POS play a vital role; MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL. Business owners who understands that importance of these systems classify the acquisition of the point of sale as an INVESTMENT. And they often see ROI only within a year.
