Marc Benioff (founder of Salesforce) wrote that the world is being reshaped by the convergence of social, mobile, cloud, big data, community, and other powerful technologies. He added that the combination of these technologies unlocks an incredible opportunity to connect everything together in new ways that dramatically transform how we live and work.
A point-of-sale (POS) was thought of as nothing more than a fixed work station which people clock in-on and out-of. Now, advancements in cloud and mobile technologies are changing the way businesses view the selling process.
Selling is no longer confined to a single section of a store. Start selling where customers are, not where you would like them to be. Sell directly on the aisles or at their tables, even sell on the streets. With a mobile point-of-sale (MPOS), businesses can expand their reach and secure sales faster.
Sales do not come at a constant rate throughout the day, week, month, or year. But are additional dedicated POS terminals worth the investment to guarantee that potential sales are not lost due to long queues? With an MPOS, businesses can use it as a terminal when needed, and for other operations when not. You can even transfer them from one store to another depending on where the demand is.
An iPad can do so much more than just register sales. Expand its use in operations with other helpful apps, and enable staff to better serve your market. Customer satisfaction does not just help guarantee a sale, but also repeat business.
The advent of mobile point-of-sale has created these opportunities, and will continue to create new opportunities as technologies evolve. And it all started with a thought from Steve Jobs, that it would be really wonderful to have a little box, a sort of slate that you could carry along with you.
