Furthermore, the best part is your EPoS system will also give you real-time stock data, something that even the best cash registers cannot do.
6. Staff Management
Your EPoS software will reduce the time you spend on scheduling and its implementation. Nowadays EPoS systems include time clock functionality, allowing your staff to clock in and out on an EPoS terminal. EPoS advantages empower you with access control measures to ensure employee identity is verified for clock-ins and access to your system particularly for functions including voids and returns to minimize shrinkage from employee theft.
EPoS systems have reporting features that allow you to keep a close eye on sales, profits, and costs. EPoS reports give you data in real-time in an easy-to-read format. With cloud-based EPoS reporting, you can access reports wherever you are, at home, the office or travelling abroad. Regardless of where you are, you will have the insight you need to make data-driven decisions.
Your EPoS system will also allow you to screen Key Performance Indicators (KPI), for example, average customer sales, stock turnover, and sell-through rate. This visibility into your business performance will help you to identify areas of your business that are performing well and others that may need to improve.
8. Streamlined Accounting
An EPoS system streamlines the accounting process. Old fashioned cash registers force accountants to figure out hundreds of receipts, but with a PoS system, you can print reports and, much of the time, import data directly with your accounting software.
9. Detailed Receipts
EPoS systems provide your customers with detailed receipts instead of a simple piece of paper with the date and the amount of sale. Our systems use stock data to provide much more information, including product description, price, and savings from a sale or coupon. You also have the option to customize a specific segment of the receipt like the footer. This can be used to state your return policy, or promote your social media channels or even add a custom message.
10. Faster Service
Reduce waiting times, provide quicker service with an EPoS system that is built to keep up with your fast-moving business. No one likes queuing, especially your customers. Excessively long queues can deter your customers from purchasing, they may even return the items they planned to buy and leave. An EPoS solution provides a faster checkout process than cash registers, especially when using a barcode scanner to ring up products. Our technology allows you to take advantage of the checkout experience to engage customers and ensure they have a good impression of your brand.
