Electronic Point of Sales systems are becoming increasingly popular for retail, hospitality and leisure businesses, and it’s easy to see why. They can save time for staff, customers and business owners in terms of transactions and reporting, and can also help to streamline services and save money. Here are six ways an EPoS system could save your business time and maximise profits.
1. Increased Transaction Speed
EPoS systems can streamline transactions and make it far easier and faster for staff to ring through products or services. This allows them to serve more customers within a shorter amount of time, keep customer waiting times to a minimum and free up more of their time for other duties.
2. Better Stock Management
An EPoS system performs automated stock checks and reports in order to reduce the amount of time employees have to spend on these duties. They can also notify of low stock levels, highlight slow moving products and bring to your attention popular product lines to help you sell more products.
3. Easier To Use
EPoS systems are intuitive to use and often simplify transactions, which means that less training is required, saving both time and money.
4. Seamless Reports
Head offices can view summaries or full reports from EPoS systems in order to pinpoint opportunities where profits could be increased or special offers could be created. All this is done far faster and more efficiently than if reports had to be compiled manually.
5. Better Cash Control
Cashing up at the end of a day can be time consuming, but EPoS systems can tell you exactly how much is in the till in order to minimise errors and save time. They can also restrict staff members’ abilities to void or refund transactions in order to protect your business from staff misuse.
6. Streamlined Services
An EPoS system can automate many processes that would normally take up a staff member’s time and prevent them from seeing to other crucial duties, which could improve your level of service. For example, in the hospitality industry, EPoS systems can allow food and drink orders to be sent directly to the kitchen, allowing waiting staff to attend to other tables and provide even better customer service.
No matter what industry your business is in, it’s likely that an EPoS system could work wonders in terms of saving time, and we all know that time is money; by making your business run more efficiently you’ll see happier customers, more content staff, and you’re bound to see the benefit in your profits, too.
