December is the busiest time of the year in retail. Stores can generate up to 40% of their yearly revenue in the run up to Xmas. Which means its also a time when your business processes will be pushed to the limit.
So if you’ve survived the holiday madness, now is a good time to take stock of how well your business systems performed. Did you lose one too many sales waiting for your old Windows-based POS to reboot? Did you find it hard to keep track of staff targets, writing everything down with pen and paper? Did you feel like doing this to your old cash register?
Its reasons like this why January is a busy time for retailers upgrading their systems. So if you’re in the market for a new POS this new year, be sure to read our independent POS buyers guide before you start to shop around.
