Should you choose a Cash Register or a Point of Sale System for your business?The answer depends on your business. How you handle your sales depends on the size and complexity of your business. Pencil, paper and a cash register with a cash drawer may be enough for a slow business, especially in a rural setting. A cash register will calculate tax and total your sales at the end of the day. It will not help you manage your business.
If you are just starting your business, an old style cash register may be enough. As your business grows, your needs will expand. Growth can be the motivator to switch from a cash register system to a point of sale system. Where a calculator used to work, something more is needed.
Point of Sale systems (POS systems) are true business management tools. They put you in control of your business.
A POS system can help you manage inventory, schedule staff, track staff
hours, monitor sales trends, perform customer relationship management,
implement customer loyalty programs, and integrate with your accounting
system. The right POS system will help your staff perform their jobs easily and efficiently. Your customers benefit from the speedy and accurate service the Point of Sale system makes possible.
A modern restaurant, popular bar, or high traffic coffee shop will benefit from a top rated POS system. Upgrading to a restaurant Point of Sale system will offer an easy to use touch screen interface, tip management on Credit and Debit, Seat and Bill splitting, real time table status, full coursing hold and fire, access from any terminal, and management of loyalty programs and discounts. You will also benefit from a restaurant reservation system, staff scheduling system, and liquor inventory control.
If you are opening a new restaurant or bar, you can start with a cost effective restaurant POS system. You will have all the benefits from the start. It will also avoid staff retraining.
For a restaurant POS system, we recommend the Volanté Point of Sale system as it is both top rated and easy for you and your staff to use. Learn more about how a Volanté POS system can help you manage your hospitality business.
