How using an iPad POS will Increase Retail Store SalesLast week I was unpacking a box that was in storage and the newspaper that protected my treasures actually became treasures themselves. They were ads from Best Buy circa 1997 and showed the amazing“new” cell phones that were available. My favorite was the Motorola Portable Cellular Flip Phone with built in AC/DC charger, 22 number memory, 100 minute talk time, a weight of “only” 10 oz and cost just $19.99 before mailin rebate.So what’s the point of my nostalgia? I can’t believe how far we’ve come in almost 20 years. Instead of carrying something the size of a brick that allows you to make portable calls, we are now able to call, text, manage our exercise routines, access millions of songs and movies, get directions for any location in the world, blow our budgets with the power of online shopping, connect with a long lost friend via social media, and browse through millions of apps. Who would have dreamed that any of this would be possible? (And the average cell phone weighs in at 3.5 oz and has a talk time of about 4 hours if you were wondering.)While cell phones are amazing tools, let’s go one step further and talk about the iPad. I went to my hair stylist last week and she literally rents a booth and runs her business with just her iPad. By using a simple iPad POS, she schedules appointments, accepts credit card payments, offers loyalty coupons, monitors sales and product inventory, posts before and after pictures on social media and even plays movies for her daughter when her child care falls through. What this means is that for just a couple hundred bucks, anyone can be an entrepreneur and run their own business with top of the line pos software and sell to anyone, anywhere.So maybe that works for an independent hair stylist, but can a larger businessreallyfunction with just iPad pos software? Well, I came across a really helpful iPad pos system offered by Vend, who is a leading pos software system used by thousands of retailers worldwide, as they prove that you can use your iPad to manage your company effectively. They have specifically designed their pos software system to be optimized on the iPad for quick transactions, you can access popular products with Quick Keys and easily find information on existing products or customers within your database. Imagine yourself waiting for your kid’s soccer game to start and using your time to order more inventory and to review your sales reports. Not only will you be able to watch your kid score her first goal, but you can use your time more efficiently in the best interest of your professional and private life.
What was once the unimaginable and was found only in movies is now a reality. The Internet and cloud based apps, such as anipad pos systemhas allowed anyone to participate in the global economy with a few economical tools that can separate your business from the rest… who may be selling in the past. I can’t wait to see what technology has for us in the next 20 years!
