Support & Reviews

NRS: Their outsourced support team with poor setup and training experience means there are many negative customer reviews tied to support.

POS Nation: Our 24/7, in-house tech support team provides unlimited system training and setup. This in turn has generated over 600 reviews from real, happy customers.

Rear Display

NRS: A rear display is included in the POS system purchase.

POS Nation: Rear displays are an additional cost as a part of our wide array of hardware add-ons.

NRS: Users are required to show Boss Revolution international calling card advertisement on POS system display, often translating to a 'gimmicky' look and feel for customers.

POS Nation: With us, users are free to promote whatever is most beneficial to their business on their system’s display.

There's a Better Way with POS Nation

We recommend other POS systems when we know they'll be what's in the best interest of our customers; unfortunately, NRS (National Retail Solution) is not a solution we ever recommend. But don't take our word for it, check out their reviews

No Hidden Costs

While NRS' upfront cost may be lower than competitors', there are ongoing additional monthly fees — including $49.95/month for cash discounting, which POS Nation includes out of the box. 

At POS Nation we believe in a straightforward, all-inclusive pricing model. Choose an upfront or monthly payment option, and get a POS solution equipped with everything you need — including add-ons, features, and support.

Features to Run and Grow Your Business

Managing case breaks, tracking inventory, and calculating the cost of items are need-to-have features. Unfortunately, NRS does not include these basic functions.

With POS Nation, we include every feature your business needs, including:

  • Full Inventory Control
  • Case Break Inventory (track by pack, case or single)
  • Unlimited Item Input (without sacrificing system speed)
  • Greater Reporting Usability
  • Cash Discounting Options

Local vs. Cloud: POS Nation Offers the Best of Both

We understand that it's critical your business not be at the whim of a spotty internet connection. Our system operates locally, but provides the most critical business functions through our cloud features. 

With the other guys, a spotty WiFi connection could mean dollars lost until your system reconnects.
