guest blog: the future of point of sale
By Chris Pace

Remember the days of the cash register on the counter? Spreadsheets done in pencil? Sounds funny to some people, but that was how it was done. If you’ve been in business for a few years, it might even be how you’re still doing things. Moving over to a digital, cloud-based (internet-based) solution is secure, practical, and efficient.
The age of the old fashioned cash register is coming to an end. I’m sure you’ve seen the trend lately, instead of a coffee shop or small cafe using a bulky, old cash register, you see a slick iPad that does everything. It prints or emails receipts, pops the cash drawer, accepts credit cards…all the while storing data in the cloud.
The benefits to running a point of sale from a web connected, or cloud-based, device are numerous. You will never lose data. You can access your information anywhere, anytime. It simplifies your business processes, no more end of day batching, no more running yards of register tape…instead the data is stored in real time and payments are processed instantly.
What about the speed of transactions? With a reliable piece of hardware like the iPad, you never have the freeze ups like older computer based POS systems. You can spend more time with the customer and less time with the register.
