ESSENCE THAT HAS A HUGE IMPACT

Point of Sale or simply POS system is an essential technology for any business that sells goods offline. POS systems make the checkout experience rapid and efficient for both merchant and customer.

At a basic level, the POS system helps to register sales, calculate taxes, accept and process payments, and generate receipts. Modern, customized POS systems go beyond basic cash register functionality. They deliver far more impact but also add complexity.

Modern POS Systems manage inventory, predict customer intent, help upsell and manage employees, and much more. All of this directly impacts efficiency and potentially drives improvements in overall business profitability.

BENEFITS OF SEAMLESS INTEGRATION WITH ECOMMERCE

With the skyrocketing growth of eCommerce, POS systems take on a central role as part of the software ecosystem. Point of Sale software bridges the gap between offline and online, allowing both to work in concert. To unlock the power of POS software, offline and online areas of the business need to speak the same language. This can only be achieved through a seamless integration that includes the following advantages:

UNIFIED CUSTOMER JOURNEY

Seamless integration allows businesses to implement an omnichannel strategy by ensuring consistent customer experience across all channels. This immediately increases the retention rate and boosts lifetime value.

IMPROVED CUSTOMER SUCCESS

Immediate access to information about the customer's online activities anywhere at any time allows the business to deliver more value to their customers and increase revenue by providing accurate upsell and cross-sell recommendations. In addition, cross-channel promotions and discounts are also available to further drive revenue.

INFORMED BUSINESS DECISIONS

With eCommerce correctly integrated with POS, you're not missing a single piece of information. All your customer's data across all channels resides in one place. You are also able to access reports in real-time with no limits. This helps to make informed business decisions and uncover trends that could significantly increase the performance of the business.

INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

Seamless POS system integration guarantees that inventory levels stay accurate across online and offline areas of the business. With real-time tracking, your business is always protected against over-selling. Features like reorder triggers directly impact efficiency and revenue.

LEVELED UP LOYALTY PROGRAM

Reward and engage your customer no matter where they make a purchase. Tight integration with eCommerce allows you to add additional value for your best customers and supercharge the efficiency of marketing activities.

YOUR POS SYSTEM CURRENT STATE

Do you want your business to achieve all benefits mentioned above? It's possible, but outdated POS software, poor integration, and platform limitations could hinder your success. We suggest starting with an analysis of the current state of your POS system. It's not always a simple analysis, as it can be difficult to know which triggers are important and which are not. To help, we compiled a simple quiz to assess your current POS to see whether it requires an update or not.

First, you can implement pre-built solutions like Square, Clover, or LightSpeed. Second, for a better fit, you can engage a Solution Partner to customize those pre-built solutions for your business or develop a custom POS software from scratch. Each approach has its advantages and disadvantages. Let's dive into details:

PRE-BUILT & CUSTOMIZED POS SOFTWARE

A pre-built or vendor solution is a good option if you need a fast, easy, and inexpensive POS technology. In most cases, you will struggle to receive all benefits within the chosen POS software. The inability to configure and customize the tool in the way you need will negatively impact the performance of the POS, and your business.

Integrates with most commonly used software.

Pros

While the custom POS system may initially seem like a more complex solution, it is not. Whether you choose to customize existing POS software or build a solution from scratch, the ability to create a technology specific to your business requirements will provide long-term benefits to your organization. The key to success is to choose an experienced Solution Partner that can analyze your business and build the architecture based on your unique needs.
