POS 101: Customer Engagement

As a merchant, you’ve got a tough job. I certainly don’t envy the fact that you not only have to manage your employees, upkeep your inventory, somehow make sense of your sales data, pay the bills, and make sure your establishment doesn’t burn to the ground, but also convince potential customers to do their shopping […]

POS Hardware: What Do You Really Need?

POS hardware setups can vary a lot from one merchant to the next, from big-box stores with self-service kiosks, to your small-time entrepreneur friend who only takes payments on his old-ass Samsung Galaxy. Most businesses, however, will find a happy medium between these two point-of-sale setups and incorporate a few core pieces of POS equipment into their hardware setup. […]

POS 101: Budgeting For Success

Responsible money management. Budgeting. Finance. These are concepts designed to strike terror and apprehension into the very hearts of the general population. Okay, I admit that’s a slight exaggeration (only slight). To people with MBAs or accounting degrees these otherwise intimidating terms probably generate a sense of excitement and a rosy glow.

ShopKeep VS Lightspeed POS

ShopKeep VS Lightspeed

I like to think iPad point of sale systems provide a kind of happy medium between mobile POS and traditional POS systems. In many cases, they offer all of the functionality of the older, more expensive point of sale systems, along with cool web-based features and mobility when you need it. ShopKeep (see our review) and Lightspeed (see […]

ShopKeep vs Revel

ShopKeep VS Revel

ShopKeep (see our review) and Revel Systems (see our review) are some very recognizable names in iPad point-of-sale (POS) systems. In the past several years, numerous merchants have switched out their traditional POS in favor of one of these cutting-edge, web-based POS’s.
