There are many advantages to having a point-of-sale system running on different equipment through a WIFI and/or cloud solution. We hasve some special routers and an improved microsoft SQL that can make such a system fly.
Here are some examples of what advantages it can do.
1) Having a tablet with a register means that someone can go out with a tablet and add immediately a new register if the queue gets too large.
2) When doing stock returns, the goods are in front of you, do you really want to go to a computer to get the information required? No, you want the information while you are in front of the goods as there is a lot of information as our system is considered the best in stock returns. Without a tablet, or laptop you need to often remember or write down some info on paper and go back and forwards from the computer to the goods.
3) You are in front of a potential customer and need as much information as you can get. Do you really want to step away from the customer, and to go searching on a computer just when they are thinking of buying? How much better is it if you could have all the information on your mobile/tablet right in front of you without stepping away from the customer and put in the order immediately.
If you want to link into such a system, please consider that it would be a serious loss not to move now to take advantage of this year's immediate tax write-off, which allows businesses to immediately deduct the full value of every asset purchased to the value of $20,000, instead of claiming the deductions over a number of years.
