Owning my own business, there are things that you have to have. A register, printing paper, ink, etc. When I was visiting my favorite bakery the other day, the owner rang me up on her ipad and had me sign my name with my finger. She asked me if I needed a receipt and then informed me that she could e-mail me the receipt. Genius! Of course, I had just purchased a cash register and took HOURS reading the manual and setting everything up. After packing everything up and returning the register, I purchased an ipad and got started. Here's what I love about my POS device.
It's Eco-Friendly - With the absence of paper and ink, I don't have to deal with the hassle of going to the store once a month, buying more items for the register, worry about it breaking down, but I really love that saving paper and ink helps the environment and these "green" baby steps will add up over time.
It Saves Me Money- Being able to e-mail receipts is a huge reason behind why I decided to go with a POS system. Surprisingly, most people don't even want a receipt and end up throwing it away 85% of the time. Using this tiny device requires no fuss or worry about leaving a carbon footprint.
It is Easy to Travel With - The ipad and POS device are so small, you can literally put them in your purse and take them anywhere! If I have to buy wholesale supllies or meet customers, I just pack these items up and use them to pay and accept payment. Thin, light and easy to use, I recommend this gadget to every business owner.
