I am trying to help a friend find a Point of Sale (POS) system.
I want to let you know that I have done research on this website, and I have found previous posts, but they haven’t answered all of my questions.
At first, Speedline Solutions looked good, but I heard that it is expensive.
I am looking for the cheapest option, which has the ability to have online ordering, keep track of customers, search by phone number, name, etc.
What experience do you all have with Point of Success?
In order to make the investment worth it, I would like to see increased sales as a result of purchasing a Point of Sale system.
Does Point of Success offer marketing tools? I don’t see anything on their website about up selling, email marketing, etc.
It looks like Mercury’s payment service is recommended. Do any of you use that, or do you use your own payment processor?
What is Mercury’s credit card processing rate?
4)What is the cost of PCCharge to enable the ability to use a different payment processor? Do any of you use PCCharge?
If we choose PCCharge, does that mean there are no loyalty, reward, or gift card programs available with Point of Success?
What is the cheapest touchscreen monitor you recommend?
What is the cheapest receipt printer you recommend? I’m reading thermal can cause problems if around heat, so we might want the other kind.
What drawer do you recommend?
Does all of this connect via USB? Is it simple “plug and play”? I want to make sure we purchase equipment that is compatible.
Do you recommend any of the iPad based systems, such as NCR Silver?
Just to emphasize, the following is important:
Affordability: We are looking to invest as little as possible.
Record Keeping/Database: If it can keep track of the customer’s name, address, phone number, their previous orders, etc, that would be nice. It would be good to have the ability to search by phone number.
Online Ordering: I feel it is very important that this pizzeria adds online ordering to help increase sales. Do you agree? If so, we need a system that can add online ordering.
Marketing Tools: The more marketing tools, the better.
Thank you all! I appreciate your assistance.
