What Is A POS System?
What is a point-of-sale system? (POS) In the retail trade, the “point of sale” is the moment when a customer walks up to a counter with goods and prepares to purchase them. A POS system handles the transaction, whether it takes the form of an adding machine and a hand written receipt pad, or a complex computer system. Except in the case of very small businesses, a current POS system usually takes the form of a computer system.
The most basic POS computer system is an electronic cash register. The clerk can ring up goods in the cash register and produce a receipt for the customer. At the end of the day, various cash register functions can be used to print out daily reports which are used to reconcile the cash register and to prepare a deposit.
A more complex POS system, however, includes numerous bundled features. Many POS systems have inventory management capabilities, where each piece of merchandise is entered into the system so that it can be tracked. Other features include a solution for payment processing and business management. Secure card data protection that will abolish breach vulnerabilities. Back-office solution with detailed reporting of performance statistics and other operational features. An ever-evolving solution that is updated based on the actual needs and user experiences of retail and restaurant businesses. An lets not forget a fast, simple, and accurate check-out/order entry.
