Are you using a mobile POS yet? If not, it might be time to. As the name suggests, a mobile POS is a small wireless point of sale device. It carries out all the functions of a regular POS, but with a difference. Here are just some of the benefits for businesses in the retail, hospitality and leisure sectors:
- Take payments on the move
Trade shows and events are no longer a logistical nightmare. A mobile POS gives you the freedom to complete transactions on the move, instead of being stuck behind a sales counter. It can also be a useful tool to help you meet social distancing guidelines.
- Increase customer satisfaction
The last thing you want is a frustrated customer waiting in a long line. With a mobile POS you can reduce queues and speed up the purchasing process. You will also reduce the risk of customers abandoning their basket.
- Support during peak times
If you’re running a promotion or sale, you may need additional checkout options to deal with the demand. A mobile POS provides a cheaper and more convenient solution.
- Reports at your fingertips
You can track sales and analyse performance in real-time, giving you insight into which products sell the best and when.
- Upselling opportunities
The classic “Fries with that?”. Upselling to your customers is a great way to increase sales. A mobile POS can provide your team with reminders.
- Build your database
Capture customers’ details on the spot. You can use this data for future sales and marketing campaigns.
