Are touch screen POS systems really worth it?

In recent years, many industry-leading businesses and organizations have invested heavily in touch screen solutions. There's a lot to be excited about when it comes to these hardware solutions. The biggest advantage of a touchscreen is that it allows for a faster workflow and a more efficient order entry. In this way, businesses and organizations can dramatically streamline business operations.

Unfortunately, with so many different touch screen POS providers, it's difficult to know which vendor you should prioritize for your business. Additionally, with such rapid technological advancement, it's difficult to separate fact from fiction when it comes to hardware features and benefits.

4 Amazing Benefits of a Touch Screen POS System

So, what does your business need to know when it comes to touch screens? In this article, we'll discuss some of the top-line benefits of a touch screen POS system. This way, you can decide if touch screen is right for your unique business.

1. Payments

One of the best ways to improve the customer experience is to offer fast checkout and payment processing. With a touch screen POS system, payment processing is a breeze. You can swipe or insert customers' credit cards quickly and securely. Additionally, the cash purchase processes are streamlined and expedited.

Instead of manually clicking through multiple screens and/or views, users can navigate through the checkout process with precision and ease, giving customers the ability to quickly checkout and get on with their day – it's that easy!

2. Employee Management

By using a touch screen POS, business owners and managers can easily track their employees. In this instance, you can see which employees worked, how long they worked, and much more. With this information, you can better manage teams.

When it comes to employee management, POS Nation offers the following:

  • Digital Time Cards: Each employee can track working hours and break times. Schedule your entire team weeks in advance to ensure you have proper coverage at your business or shop. Remove the administrative burden of manually calculating hours and let our system do the work for you.
