					   FIVE REASONS WHY YOUR CASH REGISTER
                          MIGHT NOT WORK




When it comes to your point of sale systems management, compromise is
something that you can never afford. Your device and its operative software must
not only perform to its best possible levels, but it must also be flexible enough to
match the demands of the changing time. With markets fluctuating and customer
demands changing by the hour, the expectations out of a point of sale cash register
have trebled in the recent years and they are now thought to play a very important
role in your business’ success. In the wake of such circumstances, considering the
severity of the time, it can be rightly said that your register might fall short of your
expectations. Let us explore the top five reasons for the same.

   1. A Point of Sale cash register might be an expensive affair especially for a
      small retail setup. A simple one would cost a hundred odd dollars but for a
      high end one with basic tracking and analyzing capabilities, the optimum
      prices of the device can vary between fifteen hundred to twenty thousand US
      Dollars and coughing up such an amount of money could mean a huge hole
      in your pocket. Plus the installation charges are not certainly the only ones
      that you will have to bear. Maintenance includes a significant amount too.
2. The device is not all the easy to use as it seems to look like. With hoards of
   high end but complex functionality, it can take quite a bit of time to get the
   hang of the usage of the device. Moreover, simply being taught the various
   functions is not enough. One needs time to memorize and use it without
   messing up. Therefore, training the employees is a time consuming affair
   too.
3. The ultimate aim of an effective Point of Sale system is to intuitively
   analyze the data and provide an easy to understand analysis so that you can
   use the data to boost your sales. Well, now this does not quite happen all the
   time. With the data requirements changing every day, the analysis results
   might not be what you are looking for.
4. Locally connected computers, isolated LANs and other isolated networking
   makes POS cashing registers closed systems. Therefore, you might not be
   able to access your data from outside the actual point of sale. The absence of
   cloud computing and connect facilities or wide area networking is proving to
   be a severe hindrance in the present dynamic times when connectivity is of
   the utmost importance. Remote access not being available can be a problem.
5. An important feature which might not be present is the capability to upgrade
   the cash register. With market conditions changing and commodities
   making regular exits and entries into the markets, you need a system which
   can be easily upgraded to track the altering customer habits and keeping the
   changing prices in preview.

These five factors form the major hindrances which scream out the need for
new state of the art intuitive POS cashing registers that come with slick and
seamless technology and are extremely adaptable and user friendly.
Summary
It is important for the retailers to update their machines with the changing times,
this is because a lot of new technologies are coming up and it is better to use the
new software rather than employing the old one.
