What POS System is Best for Your Business?

April 20th, 2018

What do I need to know to successfully transition to a new POS system ?”


Today’s post is by Troy Lowe; Vice President of Development at SafeSourcing.

Changing out a Point of Sale System is not something that a retailer can take lightly.  This is a very daunting task and takes a lot of pre-planning.  Since most retailers are open 7 days a week, there cannot be any or little down time when the transition takes place.  This means that there must be a lot of research and a good team in place to make a successful transition.  Researching all of the components can also be very time consuming.  There are a lot of suppliers that offer excellent solutions that will meet your needs.  Most of the suppliers offer POS systems that include both hardware and software solutions that will help streamline the transaction process.  When doing your research, you must first know what hardware that you will need and the amount of stress that will be put upon it.  Some systems are built to last extreme usage and temperatures where others are not.  It is also important to know all of the components that you will need.  For example, barcode scanners, register screens, payment terminals, cash drawers, and receipt printers.  When choosing a POS system, there are many other things to consider as well.  Below is a list of some things to keep in mind.

  • How many transactions do we average on a given day?
  • How many lanes need to be supported?
  • Are we planning on expanding in the near future?
  • What type of payments do we accept?
  • Does my environment cause the need for more durable equipment?
  • Do we support mobile transactions?
  • Do we need to have multiple locations linked together?
  • Do we need to synch data with other applications?
