Cash Registers vs Point of Sales

Cash management systems are an indispensable tool in any retail store. Whether it’s a traditional electronic cash register system or computerized point of sale solution, every retail environment needs a system to process sales.

Cash management systems allow business owners to:

  • Speed up their operations;
  • Collect valuable sales data;
  • Reduce human error;
  • Facilitate the check-out process

What are the differences?

Though it may seem as though cash registers and Point of Sales fulfill the same purpose, which is closing sales, their distinctions are much deeper.
A cash register will facilitate the check out process and store your cash, however, a Point of Sale will help you run your retail business.

Advantages of an Electronic Cash Register System:

  • Affordability
  • Speed
  • Durability

Advantages of a Point of Sale Solution:

  • Smarter Inventory Management
  • Simple Staff Management
  • Collection of customer data
  • Loyalty Programs
