Why should I use POS system ?

A point-of-sale system is the central tech hub of your company where you can find sales management (invoices, customer files, reports, etc.), inventory management, and online sales management. 

A point of sale makes it possible to centralize part of your store’s operations, secure all your data and make your company management easier thanks to numerous key features, such as inventory control, customer management, cross-sales and more. A POS makes it possible to facilitate  better stock management. To learn more about inventory control systems, click here.

  • In-store invoicing

Does POS software and hardware need to be purchased from the same vendor?

Point-of-sale software and necessary hardware do not necessarily have to be purchased from the same supplier. Sometimes, the company provides  equipment and installation, while others opt for referring a local service, since local hardware providers offer more services. For example, Alice POS works with partners like Millenium Micro that offer local personalized IT services, such as computer and equipment repairs,  hardware support and installation,antivirus solutions, IP telephony and much more! 

Is an industry-specific POS system necessary?

It is recommended to look at the industries that a point of sale can serve. For example, some point-of-sale (POS) software is designed only for restaurants and hotels, while others specialize in retail stores only. 

As a result, not all point-of-sale systems are designed to meet the same needs. In other words, a POS for restaurants or hotels will have functionalities concerning the logistics of tables in the restaurant, rooms or manage reservations while points of sale for retail businesses will perform different functions. 

For retail businesses, it is best to look at all the features specific to your needs and those of your company. It is also relevant to ensure the security of your point of sale, the training that the software team can provide as well as the migration of your data from your old POD to your new one. Alice POS is designed to meet all the needs of a retail business and to perform all these functions and more. 

If you run a network or chain of stores,a point of sale designed for those specific needs  is particularly important. Indeed, if you have stores that are part of a chain like a franchise, it is necessary to have software adapted to this type of complex business. Alice POS’s core business is networks for example, and our  software can perform many functions specific to store networks, such as inter-store transfers, catalogue and price list management, and more in all your stores.
