When looking for Point Of Sale software, you should be incredibly picky. If your retail software is difficult to run, if it lags or if it offers limited access or control, you could be losing money. That is the bottom line. Point of sale software is going to control your time, your sales and your stock. In a sense, choosing the wrong ePOS system can be a huge mistake for your business. On the other hand, choosing the right POS software can be the best business investment you will ever make.

No Software to Install

Your EPOS software should be completely cloud based. Your retail software information is stored and maintained on incredibly secure servers offsite. So, you can think of your data being up 'in the clouds' so to speak, hence the term. Cloud based retail software systems bring with them great benefits. They lower running costs, they are simple to install and they don't require any expensive servers or IT costs. There is no polling and you won't have to worry about your data being corrupted. Furthermore, there are no delays and your data is always available.

24/7 Access

Retail software data should be available whenever you need it. If there is a delay or if you have to wait hours or days for your data to update, it could result in lost time, money and plenty of frustration. The point of sale software you choose should be available 24/7 and offer complete live control. Just as you carefully control every aspect of your business, you should also be able to carefully control your retail software system. The right ePOS system will allow for total visibility and control and will provide it in a neat package that is easy to install and use.


At the end of the day, it is your employees who will likely be using the ePOS system the most. This is how they log their sales, track their time and essentially run the business. If your employees can't use your chosen ePOS system, they may fall behind and you could lose business. Instead, use an ePOS system that is user-friendly and that anyone can use.

Stock Control at Its Best

Your retail software system should not only track your stock, but should also track your 'return on stock' and should help you track and improve your cash flow. Tracking your company's stock manually can take up too much valuable time and energy that could be spent on other areas of your business. The right ePOS system will help you yield a great return on stock and will dramatically cut down on the time you spend on administration.
