Shopping for a gift for the person who has everything is easy for businesses using Cash Register Express™, which offers retailers the ability to sell and redeem gift cards, issue gift receipts and create and update registries.
Speaking of the kitchen, operators see equally significant advantages when restaurant POS systems tout enhanced order display capabilities. Printing orders transmitted from the point of sale to a kitchen printer, or displaying them on a kitchen video monitor, reduces theft and loss due to incorrect orders.
Modifying restaurant orders and transactions isn’t always easy, but it can be—providing that operators leverage the enhanced capabilities of sophisticated, but-easy-to use point of sale solutions such as pcAmerica’s Restaurant Pro Express™.
Just as retailers now require highly functional point of sale software rather than solutions that do little more than allow them to process transactions, so, too, do restaurants. Only a point of sale system with a variety of useful features will enable operators to reach their true profitability potential.
As important and advantageous as capabilities like “bulk pricing,” “transaction suspend” and other sophisticated features mentioned in the first two parts may be, today’s retailers also need point-of-sale systems that can handle the different requirements of the vertical market in which they play.
The roster of today’s “must-have” point-of-sale system necessities—such as those available from pcAmerica—also includes those whose benefits center on easier, faster handling of more complicated transactions that involve special pricing; complicated steps and/or multiple calculations are replaced with a single automated process.
Some of these essential features tie into basic transaction processing tasks. Take, for example, a multi-functional login screen that not only allows employees to clock in at the store for the day and securely log on to the point-of-sale system, but can also be used to access back-office functions, like reporting.
