The 4 Major Differences Between An iPad POS System And A Cash Register

by Ryan David Technical Consultant

The cash register patented and invented by James Ritty in 1883 along with John Birch.That called “Incorruptible Box”, it's made of metal and characterized by tracking the keyboard itself to secure the money coming in and out of the box. It also has a characteristic and very recognizable timbre that rings every time when the box opens and can be heard in any store in the world.

Most cash registers have been updated over time; many of them have remained in their basic design, fulfilling the main function of controlling the money coming in and out.

Some of the advantages that the iPad POS can offer over the cash register are:

Modern cash registers have the ability to divide products by category and scans the register items that are buying by customers. An iPad POS system does all that and also provides a platform to manage the inventory with the ability to move orders and ensure that the stock levels are always constant.

The iPad POS also have the ability to detect buying trends that will help you adjust your business model to remain competitive. It also has the ability to store all files in the cloud ensuring instant access to all data anytime, anywhere.

Cash registers are very good for making transactions, storing cash and keeping track of all money movements on a daily basis. Instead, an iPad POS system has the ability to remember the name of each customer by their phone number that improving the user experience. You can also create a database that can be used to offer special promotions to your most common customers and conduct loyalty campaigns.

Therefore the iPad POS system is increasingly being implemented to the detriment of the conventional cash register. However, it will be more difficult for us to get rid of the famous “ring” as it can perfectly be incorporated into any device.
