Business-in-a-box for retail, hospitality merchants

Product: Epos Now
Company: Epos Now

Cloud-based POS solutions provider Epos Now expanded its line of smart, vertically focused POS and business management systems. Designed to simplify POS and business management, the customizable and processor-agnostic platform works seamlessly across leading web services, integrated POS systems, leading card reader peripherals and connected devices, according to David Duncan, vice president sales at Epos Now. The company provides solutions for numerous vertical industries, including retail, hospitality, fashion and beauty merchants.

"Epos Now gives merchants everything they need to be successful and the freedom and flexibility to scale the platform as they grow," Duncan said. "It doesn't make sense to lock a customer into a single device or contract. Our cloud-based app enables merchants to work from anywhere and our industrial grade hardware is built to last, with new models released each year."

Duncan mentioned that Epos Now's cloud-based POS software works on Apple Mac, iPad, Android, or Windows devices. Competitively priced solutions are available as a subscription service or upfront software license purchase. The Epos Now secure online portal enables business owners to view real-time product, sales and employee performance information across an enterprise. Additional back-office tools are available in the company's AppStore. The solution supports standard receipt printers, barcode scanners and customer display poles and easily adapts to changing requirements, he added.

Open architecture, ecosystem

Duncan pointed out that Epos Now's open terms and software architecture reflect the company's commitment to freedom and choice. Merchants can try Epos Now solutions for a month at no charge. The complete Epos Now system combines vertically focused software with a dual-core capacitive screen terminal, high-speed thermal receipt printer, all-metal cash drawer, EMV-capable payment card reader and free installation, data migration, customization and support. "We don't try to lock people into our ecosystem," he said. "Just plug the system into a power source and choose the program that is set up for your industry. It takes minutes to configure and the intuitive user interface is easy to use."

Retail features include web and online integration, barcode and inventory management, loyalty, booking programs and invoicing capabilities. Hospitality features include online ordering and booking, table management, multiple printer support, loyalty and split tab functionality, Duncan stated.

More than just POS

The Epos Now technology suite's advanced capabilities extend beyond payments acceptance, Duncan explained. Essential business tools include data analytics, automated processes and instant notifications that show activities and insights as they occur. The platform also provides visibility into front- and back-office operations and the entire ordering process to help ensure that merchants will never lose a sale. Linked payments and loyalty programs provide consumers with real-time access to rewards and offers. In-app and in-store self-checkout at retail and hospitality establishments facilitate remote and mobile ordering.

The Epos Now AppStore connects users to hundreds of third-party apps, with new solutions continually added. The company's dedicated integration specialists, development tools, dashboard and REST API support agile app development, customization and integration with the Epos Now platform. Developers can use the platform to expand their reach and improve product offerings, Duncan stated.

Duncan summarized Epos Now as a user-friendly platform that integrates seamlessly with third-party solutions, delivering next-level hospitality and retail management for small businesses. The fast-growing POS platform reflects the company's mission of providing affordable, robust and scalable solutions. end of article
