To gain maximum benefits of working with a POS dealer to purchase your first POS system, it’s important to make sure you are partnering with the right company. Here are important questions to ask to help determine whether a POS dealer has the particular expertise you need.

Is the dealer familiar with your industry?

Some POS dealers specialize in hospitality, others in retail or niche POS markets. Find one with expertise in your market or industry.

How long has the dealer been in business?

Experienced, established dealers are more likely to have more reliable support and service processes in place, in addition to having greater industry expertise.

Can the dealer provide references?

Dealers should be willing to provide names and contact information of clients they have worked with. Speak to those with businesses similar to yours.


First-time buyers are faced with a myriad of options when they are purchasing a point of sale (POS) system. You can choose from a variety of POS software options with a wide range of features and functionality. In addition, POS hardware options range from traditional, stationary terminals with peripheral cash drawers and monitors to all-in-one models or tablet POS.


Reason #1: Locality

POS dealers have established businesses with location in mind, some with multiple regional locations, so they can best serve their clients. Face-to-face appointments are common, and when you are evaluating POS systems, a local POS dealer’s technical sales reps can visit in person to discuss your options, answer the many questions that arise during the decision-making process, and guide you through demonstrations. 

In addition, dealers, also known as VARS or value-added resellers, do more than just sell hardware and software. They work to ensure your new solution will be an asset to your business with services such as onsite training, support, and service. With a local dealer, you know when you pick up the phone, you can arrange to have someone onsite if needed, to get your system up and running with minimal downtime.

1. Enhanced Security:

Prevents the Download or Upload of Unauthorized Files. the lack of a file manager in embedded  POS systems ensures that unauthorized files cannot be uploaded from or  downloaded to the POS system. For business  owners, this provides the following benefits:

  • The inability to download data from the POS system protects business owners from sensitive data being stolen.

 •  Protects the POS system environment by eliminating the risk that employees could purposely or inadvertently upload a  virus or malware.
