Point of sale (POS) checkouts no longer mean sales staff being chained to a big cash register or computer system. Today your POS, training and follow up systems can be as small as your tablet. This has been revolutionizing retail sales and making customers happy for some time, and it’s time you hopped on the bandwagon!
If you could find one easy fix to improve your store’s sales bottom line, would you do it? Using tablets for your POS is that easy fix. Think about it, how many times have you walked into your own store, or someone else’s and found that people needed assistance, but your sales staff were at the register trying to ring up another customers sale. That translates to frustrated customers and lost sales. Now, how great would it be if your sales staff could walk around the store, not be tied to a cash register and still make the sales for customers, answer questions and do it all on the go? Using a tablet will do all of that and more.
Tablet computers have become very affordable. You know this because you sell them. So use them. There are apps that will ring up sales, track inventory, and take credit card sales for you all while your sales staff is anywhere the customer needs them to be. Play out this scenario: A customer walks in and asks for help with a product. Your sales staff answers their questions and makes suggestion for a better answer than the one they started with, but it’s more expensive. They got their “yes” or “well, ok” and start the trek back to the cash register to ring up the sale. While walking with them, the customer is doing some serious math in their head. Many times, they get the chance to change their mind on that walk. Now let’s change it around. Same question, same answer and suggestion, but your sales staff can ring up the sale on the spot. All the customer is doing is digging out their credit card or payment method. Done and done right on your handy tablet.
Even better, that tablet becomes the best way to demonstrate how amazing technology is for the customer. They can try out apps, see how it works and then get the sale rung up on the spot. Don’t wait another day. Dump your registers and get tablets for point of sale POS. You won’t regret it.
