Everybody knows you can’t run a retail business without a reliable point of sale (POS) system. It’s the driving force behind all the rest of your business operations. But, not all POS systems are the same, so it’s important to choose the right one. One of the many free services we offer at Commonwealth Consulting Group is to sit down with you, evaluate your needs, compare options, and help you select the system that gives you the best features at the right price.

What is a POS system?

In its simplest form, a cash register or cash drawer could be classified as a point-of-sale system. But, contemporary point-of-sale systems are a combination of hardware and software tools used to process your credit and debit card transactions and cash sales with retail customers.

A POS may be a physical device in a brick-and-mortar store or a checkout point in a web-based store, so transactions, including cloud-based transactions, may take place in person or online, with receipts shared either in print or electronically.

POS systems are increasingly interactive, particularly in the hospitality industry, allowing customers to make reservations, view menus, place orders, pay bills, and apply tips electronically.

Meanwhile, point-of-sale software devices allow the merchant to monitor inventory and buying trends, track pricing accuracy, and collect marketing data.
