Benefits of EPoS…

When installing our EPoS (Electronic Point of Sale) system it can take up to 6 weeks for you to enjoy the full benefits, although some benefits should become apparent immediately. These include the ability to scan barcoded items at the till point, print off barcoded shelf edge labels, and faster and more accurate credit card processing, which all saves considerable time and effort.  Typically the system will have paid for itself within 12 to 18 months. The ROI (return on investment) will take longer for businesses with medium revenues, however it will still deliver considerable business benefits and provide many of the essential tools and information to make informed business decisions to grow your business.
