EPOS Systems: Making Sure You Get the Right One

When it comes to selecting and investing money into an EPOS system, it is important that you carry out proper levels of research and take some time to think about wat is best for you. EPOS solutions are an investment, and as such, you should ensure that all your needs are met before committing.

With this in mind, we have put together a few considerations that you should bear in mind when it comes to making sure you get the right EPOS system for you: 

What is the right price for me?

As we said, an EPOS system is an investment for a company and should be considered as such. you have to make sure you are definitely getting the most of your investment. It’s worth putting together a list of the most important features that your EPOS solution needs to have for your business that is within the realms of your budget. You can always look at compromising any non-essential features as a way of meeting the price that fits your financial plan.

Think user-friendly

A big thing to think about when choosing EPOS is, would you be at ease operating the system by yourself? Also, would you be able to show staff and colleagues how to operate the system efficiently?  If and when the EPOS software needs updating, are you comfortable carrying it out yourself? If you feel you are not fully capable of using an EPOS system, the team here at CES Software are on hand to help you learn all you need to know. This will set you on the way to having full confidence in your ability when it comes to using your new EPOS system.

What features do I need?

Before buying, make sure that you know exactly what you want to get out of your new solution. You can take this knowledge with you and share it with suppliers, like us here at CES Software, and share your needs. This will enable both parties to choose an EPOS system that best suits you.

A few points to consider are:

  • Are there, if any, specific functionality you require?
  • Are you wanting your EPOS system to be connected to your ecommerce store?

Essentially, by knowing what you’re after, it will make things far easier.

What’s more, if you have a set of specific features and functions which you require, customisation is on hand to help your needs to be met. It’s worth noting that if you go in blind, then you won’t be able to offer your feature specifications to the supplier, so look into what suits you, and it will go a long way.

Be sure to explain what your business does and how you work so that a potential supplier can understand what you want out of a system and be on hand to answer any questions which they have … they’ll simply be wanting to understand how you do what you do so that they can ensure their system meets your needs.
