A POS software allows you to track sales, online orders, and inventory in only one place.
With a POS, you can create products, whether they are new or used, in your online store and transfer the description, prices, quantities, promotions, images, attributes and dimensions of the item there. You can track the products you sell online by category.
You can also synchronize your orders between your point of sale software, such as Alice POS, and your transactional website. The POS thus keeps track of orders made online. It also keeps track of new customers who have purchased online.
Inventory synchronization from the software is also possible. You can sync prices, promotions, product photos, product categories, attributes, descriptions, and product names. This synchronization allows the point of sale software to track all the information and update it in your online store when you change it in the software.
By syncing the inventory you’ve entered into your POS software with your Shopify, WooCommerce, or Ecwid online store, you ensure you always have the items customers want in-store or online. It also helps to keep inventory levels up-to-date, both online and in-store, thereby reducing waste, avoiding stock-outs and overstocks, and making your business more profitable.

If you have a transactional website, a point of sale software allows you to track the same things as in a physical store.
It can track online sales, payment information, loyalty programs (and related points and rewards), returns, exchanges and refunds, among other things. All product information stored in the software can also be synchronized with your transactional site.
The software also stores customer data. When a customer makes a purchase, the software takes their information, such as their contact information, purchase history and preferences. This allows you to better categorize contacts, know their needs more precisely and adapt your marketing strategy and your offer accordingly.
