POS systems come in many flavors with a variety of different costs. The hardware you need for your point of sale system, and the cost of the equipment will vary depending on the system you choose. Evo produces effective and affordable systems tailored to your company’s needs.
What Hardware do I need for a POS System?
A POS system typically requires payment terminals, registers, computers, and possibly additional hardware for such features as fingerprint recognition. The hardware you need depends on the legal and physical environment in which you operate. A pizzeria performing delivery differs greatly from the barbeque restaurant down the street.
Smaller and more mobile solutions are entering the market as well. Some companies offer a small plug and play device for a tablet. These devices tend to have fewer features and be less secure than a dedicated solution but are an option for smaller businesses.
A full POS increases efficiency in a variety of ways. Many such as Smarter POS contain time sheet and inventory management in addition to ticketing and payment systems.
Dedicated solutions provide the exact answer to your needs. Hardware ranges from touchscreens at the actual point of sale to the printer in the kitchen.
What equipment is required for a table payment or mobile system?
The world is going increasingly mobile. Tablets and handheld devices are increasingly common. These technologies increase efficiency and provide a better customer experience.
SecureTablePay combines state of the art payment processing with the speed of a mobile solution. By closing orders at the table, our system reduces the need to run between your customer and dedicated terminal. All that is required is a handheld device attached to your network.
Mobile systems can also reduce waste, providing a green benefit to your company. Closing open orders at the table via a mobile terminal avoids the need for a receipt. SecureTablePay allows customers to choose whether they want a receipt and in turn improves security and efficiency.
What POS software is available?
The number of POS systems available grows every year. Most companies require purchasing hardware. Even Stripe and Clover require purchasing their card processing equipment.
The software available ranges from the inventory tracking and payment processing available from nearly every provider to the time management and loyalty management applications available from Evo. Our company will work with you to provide whatever you require.
What does a point of sale system cost?
POS systems vary in cost depending on the features available. Smaller options such as PayPal and strip typically cost less than $500. When a more complex system is required, prices climb to $2500 or more.
Cost is entirely dependent on your needs. If you only need card processing and do not require the backend services and efficiencies that full solutions provide, the cost is lower than if you need fingerprinting or the routing solutions needed by a delivery company.
Smarter POS is a complete solution tailored to your business requirements at a reasonable price. Our satisfied customers include major chains such as Dairy Queen as well and the Denver Botanic gardens. Contact us today for a free quote.
