Get the right EPoS System for your Business
Future ProofingFind a system that can immediately do everything you need it to do. Aside from all the till functions, does it have comprehensive ‘back office’ software included in the price so you can hit the ground running with inventory, purchasing supplier and customer management as well as a full reporting package. Better to have everything you need to grow now, rather than suffer the upheaval and expense down the line.
If there is anything unusual that you may require, something specific to you or your industry, can the software provider you go with develop the software further to meet your unique requirements?
Find a supplier who can guarantee hardware compatibility
Select an EPoS system that is able to export data to accounts packages.
Try Before you BuyFind a company who are willing to demonstrate the features and functionality of their offering online or in person. Make sure they are cost free. It is important to be able to ask specifics about how the software works and how it could work specifically for your business.
Installation and TrainingDon't be left paying for a system that you can't immediately use because you've come unstuck while installing the software or configuring the hardware. If you choose a system that is installed in person you can be guaranteed that your hardware is compatible and that your software is properly installed and configured.
In person training is an advantage, even if you have experience of EPoS systems. Find a company that can provide one to one and group training sessions and be on hand to answer any questions.
Ongoing supportConsider companies that have in-house support from that particular product’s experts. Quite often support is run from 3rd party call centres.
Being able to talk directly to the manufactures of your software often means problems can be addressed in a timely manner.
Choose a system with advanced remote software capabilities to ensure excellent levels of service.
InternetTo keep track of orders and stock levels it’s important to link your selling channels together, so find a system that can integrate its software with your website.
SecurityIntegrate your software with only the most reputable of payment providers. This will minimise your PCI compliance requirements, keeping you and your customers under the highest levels of security.
For your online presence using a third party gateway, like PayPal or SagePay, will mean that you neither harvest nor store sensitive credit card details yourselves, which is one less headache for you and one less concern for your end customers. Find a supplier who understands and will support this.
