POS System: The Retailer’s Best Friend


Of Retailers and POS. What has one got to do with the other? 

For retailers, inventory is the lifeblood in running the business.

It is not just having a whole pile of goods in a stockroom but also monitoring and managing it.

Mismanaging inventory, on the other hand, is the exact opposite –  one runs the risk of untimely stockouts, accumulating dead stocks and having way too much inventory which is the  equivalent to tied-up investments.

And no retailer would want that!

For the POS system, the point-of-sale or the actual purchase is the center of it all.

It is where the sales transaction is done.

Because of the pandemic, much has changed overnight.

Most consumers  have shifted their purchasing behavior from traditional retail shopping to online retail and now, many are back to doing face-to-face shopping.

With the simple and seamless experience of online shopping, they are now expecting a more convenient way to do their purchases with ease.

A dependable POS system can do just that! 

You might want to ask questions on what a POS is and the system it revolves around, the POS system.

Here may be some of them.

What is a POS? And what is a POS system? 

POS stands for point of sale.

POS is where the selling and buying takes place –  practically the store’s checkout counter or perhaps the online cart.

The POS system is basically the technology behind it and it is the one being used by merchants to accept payment and close the sale.

What is the difference between the two?

POS (point of sale) is the location or the place and checkout counter , while a POS system is the technology.

It could be the terminal or register that merchants utilize to cater to customers, accept payments, and most importantly close sales.

It may even be a hand-held thus mobile device.

How does a POS system work? 

In a nutshell, a POS system has this process:  

  1. Customers buy the items.  
  1. The POS system computes the sum of all the items the customer buys, taxes included. 
  1. The customer pays for the products.
  1. POS accepts and processes the payment.
  1. The point-of-sale transaction is finalized.
  1. POS system modifies inventory levels to reflect the sale.
