An EPOS system chosen to suit your business needs will offer a new dimension and level of control over day to day operations, allowing you to react quickly to competitors and changes in customers buying habits. It will bring a host of business benefits, boosting profitability, controlling costs, increasing efficiency, and helping you fine tune your business model and processes.

Point Of Sale systems can be broken down into three broad categories:

Cash Registers

Apart from the most basic cash registers, most modern cash registers are now network ready and allow you to connect multiple cash registers together so data and customer bills can be moved or shared between machines. They also support devices like barcode scanners or receipt printers and you can even link them to a PC/Server based back office software package.

EPOS Tills

These highly sophisticated EPOS terminals are well suited to high volume operations where speed of service is essential, like bars, nightclubs, stadiums, general retail, quick service restaurants, pubs etc. Designed to be networked together on standard PC-based networks they are available with either an operator keyboard or a touch screen, where items are sold by pressing buttons displayed on the screen.

These EPOS terminals offer greater functionality than cash registers plus more system integration options such as CCTV cameras, hotel room billing packages, loyalty software, kitchen order printers, cash less smart card devices and hand held order and stock terminals.

Embedded EPOS systems do not have a PC engine inside them, they do not require an operating system and hard disk drive (HDD) and there is usually no cooling fan, so with no moving parts they are ultra-reliable and resilient.

Embedded EPOS systems are often selected for their robustness, they are less susceptible to overheating problems, data corruption, computer viruses or hacking and usually they aren’t reliant on a central server so down-time is minimal. They also have the added attraction of being energy efficient and they start up in just a few seconds rather than a few minutes.

Embedded EPOS systems can be turned off mid transaction without losing any transaction information or corrupting any sales data.

PC POS Systems

Systems like this may be installed on their own, but are typically networked together and often supported by back office software. Additional packages can offer stock control, ordering, reporting, daily & weekly cash sheets, product maintenance, price management and give you full control over your POS terminals.

PC-POS terminals traditionally consisted of a computer, monitor, keyboard and mouse, however many modern PC-POS systems now embrace touch screen technology and are manufactured as an all-in-one unit, they are specially designed for Point of Sale (POS) use increasing speed of operation, robustness and ease of use.

They offer modern designs and also allow them to be wall or pole mounted along with a receipt printer and other devices such as a barcode scanner, credit card terminal or customer advertising screen freeing up valuable counter or bar space.

In addition to choosing your PC-POS hardware you also need an additional software package, along with a cash drawer, receipt printer, order printer, scanner etc.

How Can We Help?

When deciding if you need a Cash Register, EPOS System or PC-POS system it’s worth spending a little time understanding your business requirements to make sure you select a system that’s right for you and that helps you build your business.

In the long term a good POS system can save you money, increase productivity and save you time that can be spent driving your business forward. No matter how small a business is, an EPOS system is rarely unnecessary as it will bring in business benefits, these may be simply better reports, faster transaction times or better stock management.

However, your EPOS system won’t run all by itself, so the big question is how soon you can make it pay for itself. Here are a few of the benefits a EPOS can bring and how it can help you:

Increase transaction speed and quality of service.
Faster transactions can be achieved by using a touch screen POS.
Terminals which are faster to operate, in retail adding a barcode scanner will make the checkout faster too.
Quick stock searches and level checks prevent customers from waiting around.
Hand held order terminals can be used in restaurant and quick service operations to boost productivity and up-sell extra items. “Fancy a glass of port with that cheese?”
Accurate billing – If an item is ordered it’s in the POS system so you won’t miss that bottle of wine or cup of coffee off the bill again.
More efficient transactions – customers will get served quicker and kitchens will have more time to prepare orders.
Retailers can run targeted promotions such as happy hours, multi-buys or mix ‘n’ match offers.
Retailers can run targeted promotions such as happy hours, multi-buys or mix ‘n’ match offers.
Reduce shrinkage.
Staff ID buttons (Dallas key or i-button) help reduce shrinkage, by using these on your POS system you record all transactions operators, allowing you to report on individual staff members.
CCTV integration allows transaction data to be overlaid on top of CCTV footage to obtain a clear picture of what’s happening at the point of sale.
Manager only functions for voids or refunds prevent staff misuse.
Faster stock taking can be achieved by using hand held stocktaking devices.
Manage staff hours to maximise profits. Rota’s, clock in/out and labour schedules help control • one of your key costs.
Identify slow stock items, spot sales trends, and use historical data to better forecast your needs.
Build a list of your customers – collect their contact details and get to know them better.
CRM – Customer relationship management tools can be used to communicate with your customers allowing letter, SMS texts and emails to be sent out.
Point of purchase advertising can be used to draw attention to items you wish to promote or special upcoming events you may even be able to generate revenue from 3rd party advertising.
