Traditional isolated POS

The technology changes at a faster pace and a cash register have already been turned into a digitalized system before a decade or two.

It all began with a traditional POS System in the beginning. A traditional POS machine is set up with its own physical server along with the heavy machinery. A traditional POS is truly hardware dependent and requires a huge setup for getting started.

It is meant for the largely scaled merchants and has better productivity and shopping handling experience, but it does have some limitations like –

  • Not cost-friendly
  • High maintenance charges
  • No cross-channel integrations
  • Bulky hardware

Cloud Omni-Channel POS

Cloud-based POS software is what we recommend to enterprises, as they are low on costs and high on accessibility. Cloud POS is built on top of native components of modern desktops and mobile devices which makes them an ideal choice for the omnichannel selling approach.

Cloud is everywhere and so is Cloud POS. A centralized system brings portability and empowers the “go and sell” methodology.

Types of POS: Web-Based & Native POS

There are two types of point of sale systems, web-based and native POS. A web-based POS runs on a web browser (as a URL) that connects to your server and automatically syncs information with your website.

While a native POS system works as a completely native application that is installed and runs on a device such as an Android tablet or Apple iPad. Being a native app, it provides deep integration with the device hardware resources and takes advantage of the platform.

Online Integrated POS

Webkul POS is tightly integrated into your existing system and you don’t require any separate software application or program installation. It is designed to work with any eCommerce/CMS platform where every information is synced automatically.

Online Integrated POS

So apart from checking orders from a POS device, you can log in to your website and check all the POS orders processed. Or log in to your mobile app and view or print sales receipt easily.

POS – Offline First Approach

Internet connection is needed to sync POS information to the server, but when you go offline the POS system continues to work. With offline mode, you still can place an order, add customers, print sales receipts, and record all the transactions. POS system automatically saves this data on its local storage and keeps your business running as usual.

Whenever the internet connection comes back online, POS reconnects to the server and syncs all the offline orders on its own. Webkul POS system supports offline merchants and retail stores that have poor network connectivity or don’t require 24×7 internet access.

POS Inventory Management

Inventory management is the most tricky part of any store. It should be managed in a proper way to keep track of every catalog. 

Powerful inventory management using barcode allows you to track thousands of product SKUs and categories easily. You can assign products and categories to multiple POS outlets.

A good POS inventory management helps the businesses to keep track of the POS outlet items. Also, it helps to reorder inventory automatically. And transfer products between different stores. 

Multichannel Inventory Management

Connect your store with multiple inventory sources to manage multi-channel inventories from a single website and easily track your product stock in a particular inventory.

The best part of multi-channel inventory management is that it allows you to focus on growing your business rather than only inventory management. 

Manual update and synchronize inventory counts between the location across platforms is next to impossible. Multi-channel inventory management provides the real-time visibility and synchronization to the inventory of POS. The business owner needs a view of the inventory quantities as per the locations to fulfill orders across all channels.

Barcode Scanning

Barcode Scanning Support

In Point of Sale, we have already discussed the importance of inventory management. Now, for managing inventory in an efficient way, barcode scanning support comes into the picture on POS.

Barcode scanning now helps to smartly search and add products to the Sales order using on Point of Sale. It POS agents to effortlessly scan the product and add it to the sales order accordingly.

A barcode scan is fast and reliable and takes a very less time than entering data manually. Using the barcode system a POS agent can quickly identify the products. And it takes a very less amount of time to complete the checkout process as compared to manual entry of products.

POS Outlet Inventory Control

When it comes to the POS, for retailers to know how much inventory they have is a must. It helps them to track the inventory and let them know how much they need. 

As we know that, the traditional approaches of inventory management require the retail agents to manually review the level of stock on a day to day basis. This was a time consuming process that includes lots of effort, especially for large scale businesses. 

So, executing this with a proper inventory management will reduce a lot of manual counting and paperwork. The POS allows you to mention quantity on hand for your outlets and automatically deducts from master stock when a sale is done.

Bulk Product Assignment

Bulk Product Assignment using CSV file

As we know, if you are planning to introduce the Point of Sale system anywhere in your business, then product assignment to the POS outlets will be a pain. Because in general, there are numerous products available for the customer in any eCommerce business.

So here to make things easy, the mass product assignment comes into the play. With the help of it, the business owner can mass assign the products to the POS outlets. It reduces lots of manual effort and time too. 

Distribution based on Products or Categories

There may be the case where the POS outlets will be based on the different catalog or categories. In such cases the distribution based on the products or categories comes into play. The products are assigned to the outlet either as per each product or as per the category associated with them.

Also, in other aspects, distribution makes a product available for purchase through the market. Every business has their individual need, so as per that they can manage the catalog distribution.

This process is also dependent on the market research wherein the merchant will get to know the need of any particular catalog in any certain areas or for certain target customers.

Sync Inventory Across Multiple Outlets

Sync Inventory Across Multiple Outlets

Inventory Synchronization is a must have feature that any POS System can have. Also, not only for the online but for the offline POS too. It helps to maintain the synchronisation in the inventory throughout all the channels.

The stock of goods will be synchronized in real-time with all the outlets. That refers to the fact if there’s a chance at one end it will be reflected on the others. It will help to maintain integrity among all the channels.

Also, in a way, it enhances the user experience and provides them more transparency. Real time synchronisation eliminated a lot of extra efforts from the merchant end too.
