5 All-in-One POS System Features Small Businesses Need

Are you struggling to find the right POS system for your unique business?

The fact is, industry-leading businesses know that an all-in-one POS system can deliver significant and immediate value to the business and customers. From keeping inventory counts accurate to sales reporting to guide your business strategy and more, all-in-one POS systems offer the features and efficiencies small businesses need.

So, is an all-in-one POS system right for your unique business?

5 Amazing Features of an All-in-One POS System

First things first: what is an all-in-one POS system? There's no standard definition, but an all-in-one POS system typically includes:

  • Touchscreen monitor
  • Barcode
  • Receipt printer
  • POS software
  • Cash drawer

This type of POS system is particularly useful for small businesses for a number of reasons. First, you get everything you need in one systems from one vendors. Second, they take up less counter space at checkout areas. Third, they're simple for employees to use. And finally, all-in-one POS systems can be used across all types of retail businesses. 

Finding the right all-in-one POS system for your business requires careful planning and consideration. As such, you need to closely analyze the solution's hardware and software features. As an industry-leading POS provider, we have a ton of experience helping organizations like yours to find the best all-in-one POS solution.

Here are the five amazing features of an all-in-one POS system.

1. Cloud-Based Features and Access

Typically, all-in-one POS solutions are cloud-based. This gives users the ability to access data and metrics from any device through internet connectivity. A cloud-based solution provides added convenience for owners and management. Additionally, cloud-based software keeps data secure even during unforeseen outages.

Our hybrid solution offers cloud-like features, including a reporting dashboard and virtual backend. In addition to the most helpful out-of-the-box reporting, our system gives you exporting abilities and additional customizations. In this way, you can run reports on virtually every aspect of your business – it's that easy.

2. Seamless Inventory Management

For retailers, inventory management is one of the most important features to consider when investing in a potential POS solution. An all-in-one system should offer "smart" inventory management capabilities to help with ordering, stock, pricing, promotions, and more.

With POS Nation, you can easily track buying patterns and create promotions to retain current customers and win new business. Our software's built-in loyalty program (including the ability to assign loyalty cards to individual customers) will generate more repeat sales for your growing business.

3. Credit Card Processing

When it comes to delivering powerful customer experiences, all-in-one POS systems drive simple credit card processing. There are several options when it comes to choosing a credit card processor for your business or organization.

POS Nation does not require customers to sign long-term contracts for processing. Additionally, we don't require customers to leave their payment processor. However, keep in mind that payment processing integration allows companies to speed up transactions, confirms that those transactions are accurate, and makes it easier to accept all types of credit and debit cards.

4. Integrations

An all-in-one system should integrate nicely with additional systems, including hardware, inventory management software, and more. The POS Nation retail system includes a touchscreen computer, cash drawer, barcode scanner, credit card swipe, and receipt printer. However, from there, the options are almost limitless. We offer a variety of add-on hardware and software, including customer displays, label printers, pinpads, scales, tablets, and much more.
