What to consider before choosing a Portable Point of Sale (PPOS)A portable point of sale system(PPOS) can be a great way to improve your business. A PPOS system will allow you to ring up sales from anywhere, inside your store or while on the road. When being used inside the store it can dramatically reduce the size of lines and ring up sales from all areas in your store. These feature can be very useful but it is very important that you choose the portable point of sale system that works best for your business.
One of the most important things to think about before purchasing a ppos is whether or not you're current ppos system will work seamlessly with the ppos that you get. The time and effort needed to synchronizing a pos with your current point of sale system can dramatically reduce the benefits of having a handheld system.
Functionality is the most important feature a product can have. Every week there is a new handheld device with more graphical abilities, more colors per square inch on the screen, and more bells and whistles. But the most important application of the machine will be to ring up sales so make sure it can do this before investing in graphics capabilities.
Get a handheld that only needs one or two clicks to complete a sale. Anything that has a long complicated usage system will leave customers standing around. A handheld should work as seamlessly as a fixed station.
A handheld should have all the functionality of a fixed station. When you are using a handheld you should be able to see the invoice you are writing, print receipts with a portable printer, and allow all the information to synchronized into the main database without losing any information like sales figures and customer information.
Consider also having a barcode scanner on your PDA. A handheld register that can read barcodes can speed up your checkout and can also allow the device to be used to track inventory.
A good pos software goes a long way. Take an in depth look at Pocket Register andPocket Inventory a ppos software that can easily be integrated into Cash Register Express.
