POS Software For Free?
As a consumer, you probably don't think much about it, you simply walk into a store, find what you are looking for, make your way through the checkout and head on down the road. As a retailer, your business is dependent upon it. It controls the ebb and flow of cash through your registers, helps to track your inventory, stores customer information and keeps your company cohesive across the board. What is it? It is the POS (point of sale) system your company uses.
What many retail and restaurant establishments do not know is that there is point of sale freeware available online for download. Many times, this free shareware is available on a trial basis, but it is a great way to try out different brands of POS programs if you are shopping around for one or just toying with the idea of changing things up a bit. Be assured though, this is a serious decision, as the point of sale is the most crucial part of the interaction between consumer and retailer. An easy, more pleasant experience is more apt to bring your customers back.
What type of POS software should your company use? This depends upon the type of business you are in, what features you want the program to have, and just what you will be using it for. Many times, retail business and restaurants can actually use the same type of POS software. It just needs to be programmed and tweaked to fit their specific brand.
Most pos software is made to work seamlessly with other programs like QuickBooks or Cybermatrix or other programs and hardware that you already have. They should also streamline the information you need, such as inventory levels, sales totals, employee and customer information, etc. With free downloads available via the Internet, you can try several different trial versions of POS software before you invest in one.
