Having an electronic point of sale system is highly recommended for any business that processes customer transactions, especially those made in person. EPOS might seem like a big investment (especially for small businesses). However, what you need to consider is how you would complete the wide range of tasks EPOS can provide manually.
For example, without the ability for customers to enter their PIN or swipe their card, this pretty much leaves you with the option of only accepting cash. In modern times, this just won’t do and you could lose business if you don’t accept various payment methods.
Then there’s all the data that EPOS provides on every transaction. Given how easy EPOS can make your accounting, inventory management and even your marketing, every business should strongly consider investing in a decent EPOS system.
