Electronic Point Of Sale Software - An Introduction


 
Business,Computers,Electronics
Basically, EPOS software, that is based on a computer, works along with the electronic point of sale terminal to provide the user with the ability to complete several different tasks. Primarily, a point of sale system packed with advanced EPOS software is able to replace the job of an employee, as it permits the operator the option to undertake, along with all kinds of other duties, tasks like payment transactions, reporting on sales and stock control, and co-ordination of an inventory. A major advantage, therefore, of EPOS software is that it can complete tasks way more efficiently and, as a result, can increase turnover and enhance the operations management of a business.

Does point of sale software come in handy whatever your industry? It is important to point out that although this software has many significant advantages, it's extremely expensive and consequently is not a viable choice for all organisations. After all, you might end up paying more for point of sale software than what you earn, draining your company of profits and that is a bad thing. This is why, according to eBay, businesses with annual revenues exceeding $700,000 are those that can undoubtedly find benefit in having a point of sale device. Implementing manual operations management will provide a much better return on your investment if your salary is below this threshold. Yet because there a lot of systems out there - especially ones which offer a more bespoke option - patience can be key as there may be one out there which is perfect for you. Because the majority of systems are made for big businesses, this can lead smaller firms to miss out on smaller and potentially profitable solutions.

There are different EPOS software and systems on the market, the most popular companies linked to their development of which are IBM, Fujitsu, Panasonic, MICROS Systems, Squirrel Systems, Microinvest, and Radiant Systems. A typical point of sale system though should include hardware comprised of a receipt printer, visa or MasterCard reader, bar code scanner, integrated card swipe with pin pad, and a cash drawer. Your machine will also need to have a network (usually internet-based) which can run using a wired or wireless systems.

As there are different EPOS software and systems, you can also expect that systems will come in a range of prices too. The cost of a point of sale device will largely depend on the components that it comes with as well as what make it is. For instance, a more elaborate EPOS system not surprisingly is often more expensive when compared with a basic one. A solid system will normally set you back between $2000 and $7000. It is best, however, to shop around, because there are many sellers which can provide a discounted option for around $1,500. Usually, it's possible to acquire your EPOS software from the same seller which gives you with your system. Generally after buying your machine, the company which you bought it from will be willing to set it up too. Don’t forget to clarify though if installation is offered for free or with an further charge.
