Can I Really Run My Business from an IPad POS System?

The first iPad was released on April 3, 2010 and as of April 2015 there have been over 250 million iPads sold. While this vastly popular product started out as a seemingly fun novel gadget (much like its current cousin the Apple Watch), the value and function for this little device continues to increase. In fact, this techno tablet has become a staple in modern day business. A survey by Frost & Sullivan shows that iPad usage in office workplaces has increased employee productivity, reduced paperwork, and increased revenue. Furthermore, the research firm estimates that "The mobile-office application market in North America may reach $6.85 billion in 2015, up from an estimated $1.76 billion [in 2010].”

That may sound fine for someone else’s business, but can you really run your business off of an iPad point of sale system? It seems too good to be true, doesn’t it? After all, quality POS systems cost thousands of dollars and require expensive hardware.

Well, they may have in the past, but modern day iPad point of sale software is helping countless entrepreneurs and business people run their stores from anywhere at any time. Here are a few ways that iPads are revolutionizing retail:

Mobility – With just an iPad, your employees can move out from behind the counter and interact with your customers. They can check on inventory availability and process sales adding convenience and efficiency to your customer’s shopping experience.

Versatility – An iPad POS can do everything your old clunky POS system did! You can plug in a network receipt printer, connect a barcode scanner, or just scan barcodes using the built-in iPad camera. It even accept credit cards, debit cards, and PayPal wherever you plan to do business like at fairs, conferences, or on the go.

Simplicity – An iPad POS software is easy to use and accessible to even the most timid techno-phobe. With the click of a button you can assess employee productivity, check inventory levels, or manage your customer loyalty program.

Compatibility – If you have hardware that is in great working condition and you don’t want to replace it, you don’t have to! Much of the time iPad POS systems work with your existing equipment.

iPad point of sale systems are changing the way we do business and for the better. In just five short years they have proven to be reliable, capable, and affordable assets to both startups and established companies. You can find out more about how an iPad POS system can help.
