Tailormade IT Solutions can help your business run more efficiently by installing a customized POS system.
Point of Sale (POS) systems are the modern-day cash register which performs both sales transactions, and allows in depth reporting of sales and customer data. POS systems are available in a range of styles and budgets, and generally consist of a computer with a touchscreen capable monitor, a cash drawer, a barcode scanner and a receipt printer. What sets them apart is their database of products and their ability to report on sales.
Our POS systems are tailormade to suit your businesses requirements. We use a wide range of POS hardware suppliers and have experience installing touchscreen and keyboard based POS systems with and without barcode scanners, receipt printers, EFTPOS devices and cash drawers. Your POS system can be anything device from an old PC, a laptop or a all-in-one touchscreen.
What POS software should you use ?
The best POS software is the one that suits your business. POS system software can be very expensive, and we therefore specialize in Open Source POS software such as OpenBravo and UniCenta oPOS.
