Retailers realize that the inefficiencies associated with legacy point of sale (POS) systems are costing their brand and are resulting in long lines and a poor customer experience. The solution? A mobile point of sale (mPOS). mPOS is a portable solution that turns light, handheld devices into a point of sale, empowering both customers and associates with greater freedom, flexibility and convenience.
Forward-thinking brands are looking at mobile first POS systems as the next step, and it’s actually quite simple to add on to an existing point of sale system.
Any mobile device including iPad, iPhone or iPod can function as a mPOS with support for Endless Aisle, Clienteling and Line Busting. The mobility from using a cloud-based system puts the POS in the store associates hand, redefining the in-store experience for associates and customers. Today there is no reason for customers to wait in line.
With nearly $40 billion of sales lost each year due to long checkout lines, brands and retailers stand to benefit significantly if they can improve the checkout process. Digital mPOS systems are convenient, fast and hugely beneficial in terms of the overall customer experience. Cut waiting time in half during busy periods and provide convenience for customers with line busting that accepts all forms of payment including credit card, Apple Pay and Android Pay.
Facilitate cash payments with a mobile point of sale, streamlining the payment experience. With the Modern POS, store devices are wirelessly connected to a cash drawer so payment can be taken from anywhere in-store, leading to a higher engagement and conversion rate with customers. According to research released by Capterra, “48% of retail workers prefer using mPOS”.
