The 6 Tips for Choosing the Best Point of Sales System (POS) for SMBs

by Ryan David Technical Consultant

The today market offers complete software that meets your business need and adds value to the business. Adding tools such as Point of Sale also known as POS allows you to manage automatic inventory control, electronic wallet, customer loyalty programs, and permanent support.

How to identify the best sales system with Electronic Billing?

First, the POS System you choose must be simple, friendly and flexible to migration. It allows you to keep all sales operations controlled in the office and help to grow the business. To analyze and choose well, you need to ask yourself 7 key questions:

1.    Does the solution have a good after-sales service?

2.    Is the software is friendly for use?

3.    If you are a company that sells products, does the system allow inventory control? If you offer services: Can you see who paid you and who owe you?

4.    Does the program allow you to issue invoices and view this information online?

5.    Does the system allow you to analyze the invoiced and generate reports that help make good decisions?

6.    Does the software allow you to generate all the types of tax documents that you require today and in the future?

Does the software have product masters and customers that save typing time and have differentiated access permissions?

1.    After-Sales Service

This is the key point before choosing a iPad POS. A good after-sale service will allow you to be accompanied and backed up at the time you need it. When it comes to the source of revenue itself, billing, you need to choose a reliable provider who can answer your questions and deliver a solution on time.

 

To achieve this success, it is important to ensure that they have multiple customer support platforms: call center, chat, tickets, phone, social networks, and emails. We recommend that you opt for leased solutions instead of licensed ones. This is because the after-sales service of those that operate with the leasing system is usually better since the provider has a high level of commitment to provide quality care since this depends on the permanence of the user.

Otherwise, the per-license model is becoming obsolete, because it has been noted that if you pay everything at first, the vendor usually disregards the after-sale and disconnects from the product.

2.    Usability

Another thing you need to look at is the friendliness of the software. Choosing an intuitive solution will make you feel comfortable when it comes to working with this new tool.

3.    Inventory

Studies have shown that businesses can lose more than 14% of profits by running out of the products the customer wants to buy (inventory break). In addition, having an automatic inventory control will help you save storage costs and losses due to overdue products or theft. To do this, note that the solution you choose has inventory by branch and consolidated (regardless of number of branches), complete reports by-products (best sellers, stock level, rotation, critical stock) and have the option to import information from spreadsheets to facilitate the job of entering new goods, which can be billed with one click.

In the case of offering services, the stock is not relevant, but accounts are important. it is necessary to search for the software that allows you to search online who has paid and who has not to facilitate collection.

4.    Connectivity

Nowadays everything you can see on the internet. choose a software that allows you to make Electronic Invoices online that will give you the flexibility to get an invoice from anywhere with any computer or device connected to the internet.

This will also ensure that you can access your sales information remotely, from any connected device. You will also be able to know things like: which product is the best seller, the seller with the best performance, which product you need to replenish or which you should bid for low turnover.

5.    Reports

Find an online reporting option that gives you information about: sales by branch, by seller, by product, and by customer. Having this strategic information will allow you to analyze what you sell that helps you to make good decisions. These automatic reports will save you many hours to making excel spreadsheets.

 

6. Product masters and customers

Finally, we recommend choosing a system that has a master, which allows you to make invoices with a click. This will save you a lot of time.

We hope that this post has helped you to clear your doubts and with this information you can choose the provider that best suits your needs, to make everything much easier and faster.
