4 Reasons POS Systems Are Important
Technology is moving business forward. If you’re a retailer who refuses to upgrade your point of sale methodology, it’s quite possible you’ll be left behind in a world of calculators, printed receipts and late night inventory checks. POS systems provide retailers with a user-friendly means of bringing their company into the 21st century. Here’s how:
There are three primary aspects to inventory management: knowing how much you have, knowing how much you moved and knowing how much you need. In the past, that kind of inventory tracking required a lot of counting, balancing paperwork and guesswork. POS systems like Bindo streamline the process and do most of the work for you.
You simply scan the SKUs and enter a count and price up front and the POS does the rest. It tracks your biggest sellers, lets you know what you need to order, gives you the ability to create a purchase order and keeps count of the inventory you have on hand. And it does it all on a piece of equipment as small as an iPhone or iPad!
Integrated Rewards Program
If inventory isn’t reason enough to upgrade your POS system, maybe rewards will entice you. They tend to entice your customers. For that reason, having the ability to integrate your rewards program with your POS makes sense. Enter customer information one time and keep track of what they buy and when from then on. This gives you the tools for great customer service as well as bespoke rewards. No more stamp cards to keep up with or massive card collections on a key ring; it’s all computerized on the same system that’s tracking your inventory!
Do you have a new product that promises to be a hit even before it lands on your shelves? Give your customers the opportunity to pre-order it ahead of time and pay later by using the invoicing feature on POS systems. It’s like saving a seat for a friend at a sold-out concert or sporting event!
As a business owner, you never really clock out. Your business is your passion, so you’ll enjoy the convenience of cloud computing with a POS. Check customer analytics, sales numbers, inventory management, purchase orders and employee time cards from home on your iPad.
