Case Study: Chinese Restaurant Upgrades Its Point of Sale System

For decades, things at Jeng Chi didn’t change. The owner and patriarch of the company, Mr. Yuan Teng, stood guard at the counter with an old-school electronic cash register (ECR) and an abacus by its side. “For decades, he ran that cash register, and sometimes used an abacus to calculate the bill,” said Janelle Teng, daughter-in-law and restaurant manager. “I playfully refer to it as a doughnut register, like the old ones you see in doughnut shops. It was basically a glorified calculator, but people loved paying him that way. I think it was fun for the customers.” But it wasn’t working for the business...
“Being a Chinese restaurant, we get a lot of big parties. They will split their checks a hundred different ways under the sun. With the Lavu system I can split checks and print a dozen separate receipts without batting an eye,” Janelle explained. With the first POS system, Janelle said they were limited to splitting checks just eight ways. “And let me tell you, when you’ve got a party of twelve and they want to split their check a dozen ways, you’d better have a flexible system to meet your customers’ needs. You want the dumplings split ten different ways, and everyone to pay for individual dishes? I got it.”.. Read more here

Brick-and-Mortar Retail Stores Are Going Mobile

..Many consumers today use mobile devices before and during their shopping excursions and retailers are challenged to keep up with them. Mobile POS is a key part of that drive. In-store shoppers want speed, efficiency and convenience on the sales floor. An associate-friendly mobile POS system throughout the store encourages higher levels of customer engagement and customer satisfaction. Interacting with shoppers using tactics such as proximity marketing and in-store sales assistance, a retailer can increase sales opportunities, reduce lost sales, and make the shopping experience more pleasant and convenient.
Retail IT and Mobile POS Spending is Growing

Don’t bite off more than you can chew

But as enticing credit card offers begin to flood their inboxes, recent college graduates may be tempted to establish more than one line of credit. In fact, the average consumer holds roughly 2.24 credit cards, according to Experian. Read more here

Centralized Point of Sale Management – Five Reasons Why Now is the Time for Transformation

POS technologies are undergoing a rapid transformation. After decades of incremental improvements to POS systems, mobile, wireless, cloud, and emerging payment methods like mobile apps, PayPal and NFC are causing major shifts in retail POS strategies. These shifts are changing the fundamental relationship and interactions between consumers and retailers. 
As retailers strive to move closer to their customers and gain a 360-degree view of each customer, data becomes even more essential. POS and payment systems are still an important resource for gathering data – they tell a retailer who is buying what, at what location (off line or online), preferences, history and even when purchases are made.Read more here
