What is EPoS
What is EPoS exactly?
EPoS stands for Electronic Point of Sale and is an essential tool when running a retail business. Electronic Point of Sale ensures the day to day operation of the business runs smoothly and consists of backoffice software, linked to hardware on the shop floor. Hardware such as a computerised till (or many tills) with rear facing screens, barcode scanning of goods through your checkout, receipt printers, cash drawer, weighing scales and integrated chip and pin. EPoS enables you and your staff to sell goods through your tills, taking payment quickly and efficiently.
Any agreed customer discounts, product discounts and/or offers can be added to the EPoS so these offers and discounts apply automatically, meaning your staff would no longer need to remember all of your special offers and customer discounts. It allows you to build a GDPR compliant customer database which can be used for determining customer spending habits while also offering your customers cash rewards for buying with you in the form of loyalty bonus points. The backoffice of an EPoS system offers managers and trusted staff the tools to see what is selling, how quickly, what are the margins, and if or when should I order more. It can also determine at the click of a button just how much stock you have in the business and the cost valuations.
Business owners worry that EPoS means more time in the back office in front of the computer. With RetailVista we actually enable your team to spend MORE time on the shop floor.
