Retail point of sale system are crucial for your retail business success. It is not easy running a retail business but having the right tools will ensure you are able to run your business more efficiently. I have put together a few pointers for knowing what makes a point of sale a good Retail POS, especially if you are looking to invest in a Retail point of sale system that will help you sell, manage your inventory and still provide useful business insights.

What makes a Retail point of sale systems a good system? You may want to ask if you are a retail business owner and if you are looking for a good retail POS system for your retail store. This is a valid question but certainly not a very good enough one. I’ve been advising small business owners for over 5 years and I can say I have seen business owners make the same mistake over and over again. This is not an attempt to apportion blame but to use this medium to correct this pervading orientation behind these mistakes. Business owners are wont to say “I understand my business”. There is a massive element of truth in this but it’s also laden with a massive pitfall. So what are the pitfalls?

Tools? You may be wondering “what’s my business with tools?” Tools are not only those heavy machinery you see on factory floors. A tool can be as small as your palm. Yes, small enough that you can hold it with your hands and you can literally keep it in your handbag. What’s is this tool then? Sorry, it’s neither your smartphone nor your tablet but good POS software and inventory management system. To make it even better, a system that combines a point of sale software and an inventory management software. Such system should still have the capability to provide key business insights which are easily and readily available. So think having to run your business with your smartphone or a tablet.

There are several software in the market purporting to be the best point of sale software or system in Nigeria or even the best inventory management system in Nigeria, this is expected. But what really makes a software or system the best?

Now that you know what you should be looking for; the key attributes, I am interested to know about your experiences. Do you get the best from your systems or you are using them just because they do the job? You can submit your comments below

      Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately, there is a lot of point of sale available, which is used for operations not designed for. So there is a clear difference between retail pos systems and retail pos systems.
