REASONS WHY MERCHANTS SHOULD

USE AN EMBEDDED POS SYSTEM

Enhanced Security

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.

Application Controls That Lead To Increased Productivity

Embedded POS systems enhance the productivity of your business by limiting your employees’ non-work related activities when they use your devices. Since embedded POS systems are designed for a specific purpose – running your point of sale – they are very different from general use computers.

With an embedded POS system, user activity is limited so they will not be able to use the system for checking emails, surfing the web or engaging in other non-business essential activities.

It’s important to put your best face forward, literally, for first-time guests. When people enter your restaurant, they should be greeted by your “ambassadors” — the front-of-the house staff, servers, bartenders and host/hostess. As a restaurant ambassador, it’s important that these employees are well-groomed and have a positive attitude. These are the first staff members a customer will encounter, so make sure they embody the restaurant’s culture and represent your brand in a positive way.

In addition to staff, public areas of the restaurant should be clean and inviting. The waiting area should have plenty of seating so people aren’t standing around or blocking the restaurant’s flow. Bathrooms should be monitored for cleanliness (especially on busy nights) and well-stocked with supplies.

No Antivirus or Anti Malware Software Needed

4. No Antivirus or Anti-Malware Software Needed

Unlike personal computers, devices with embedded POS systems do not need antivirus or antimalware software installed. This eliminates the need to purchase these applications as well as the time and money that comes with periodically updating your antivirus and antimalware software. Malware is malicious software that is downloaded to your computer without your consent. It includes viruses, worms, and Trojan horses  that can wreak havoc upon PC-based POS systems. Devices that have been infected with malware are difficult and often costly to repair.

With an embedded POS system, you can remain worry free about such software infecting your devices and compromising your POS system’s ability to perform.

Whether you are an independent single store operator or a mid to large size chain, it can be a nightmare when your POS system crashes. For small businesses that do not have the luxury of an IT department, the onus of getting the POS system up and running again often falls on the owner. For enterprise operations, IT is often not available to be on-site to help with rebooting your POS system.

One of the key advantages embedded POS systems offer is turn-key operation. Simply take the POS system out of the box, turn it on and it is ready to work as expected. Embedded point of sale systems are faster and more reliable than PC-based POS systems, reducing your need for costly IT support. For the merchant, this means less cost and time invested in installation, training and ongoing support costs.
