If you work in retail or hospitality, one of the most important business tools you can have is an effective electronic point of sale system (EPOS or POS). At its most basic level, an EPOS system is a computerised cash register that accepts most forms of payment and keeps track of your sales. This in itself is an improvement on conventional cash registers. At its most sophisticated, an EPOS system not only takes in money; it gives you financial reports that enable you to get the best out of your business and increase your profits.
But there can be problems. Changing to an EPOS system isn't easy - you have to be careful that it meets your business needs and that it's cost effective. An inappropriate EPOS system will waste your money and time, and will increase rather than eliminate inefficiency.
