ADVERTISER DISCLOSURE

POS Systems

In Business Finance News, we have analyzed many point of sales systems, payment processors and ERP systems.

We have compared Fattmerchant vs Square, thinking that they were very similar POS and payment processors, but we found many differences and we were surprised by these findings.

Complex industries that handle their own inventory and 3PL organizations have granular requirements about batch recalls, warehouse management and inventory reconciliation. They need handheld inventory scanners that connect in real time with their point of sales systems and ERPs. We review them here and test them connecting to a Zebra printer. Beautiful!

We have reviewed several POS providers. The most interesting according to their industry vertical are: OVVI POSNCR CounterpointAlexandria POS MaidVerifone Ruby 2 POSMynt POSIndica OnlineReverseMicros1st PaySimphony, and Appetize.

There is a type of POS that the majority of readers here do not seem to like. I refer to the POS Pin Pad type. I understand the readers that reject them, but we can recommend it for some type of businesses, as you will read.

Each industry vertical requires a different type of POS, so we cannot analyze them all together in one single group. Therefore, we have researched in different verticals to define which are the POS systems that we can recommend for each industry and why: Wholesale POSPOS for kiosksfast foods, POS for restaurants and which of them work well in iPads because some work very bad in mobile systems in my opinion, gas stationssupermarketsdispensariesconvenience storesdry cleaning industries, furnitureliquor stores, and bike shops.

What about cash registers? We have reviewed some and we have found good and bad products: cash registers for gas stationssmall businesses in general, and restaurants.

We reviewed some specific type of point of sale systems that determine the price according to the weight, called POS scales.

We have studied barcode and label printers, as label printing is a legal requirement in some industries

Restaurants, fast foods, delis and food trucks, require a separate kitchen printer integrated with the POS with a separate hardware unit. We have reviewed them here.

We do not usually review printers for POS, we simply dedicate ourselves to review a complete POS system with its hardware. However, we had so much criticism and discussions around printers for Square, that I have decided to investigate further here.
