Why POS replaced restaurant cash register ?

So basically what is a cash register???? A cash register is used for keeping a record of the transactions that occur in your store, and also for keeping record of the money coming in and out.

What is a POS system?

A point of sale system is a like a cash register from which retailers and customers can execute purchases. Basically, a POS is used to administer cash transactions and do anything that a normal cash register would do. And even you can gain more detailed POS reporting.

Some features of a POS system.

  • Touchscreen device
  • Card scanner
  • Chip reader
  • Barcode scanner
  • Computer
  • Server

Pos systems are essential for multi-channel sellers, as they sync and track data. POS simplifies the work and makes it easier. It saves time.

It also contains a number of features related to your retail business.

Cash register vs POS

Basically, they both have the same purpose which is to increase sales. The biggest difference is that the end is much more powerful, strong, and feature-rich.

Which to choose between a cash register and a POS system?

Choosing between them is another major business decision. The right answer completely depends on your needs for the system. The cash register is the least expensive and you can start using it right away. But relying on o traditional registers or cash registers may limit your growth if the customers choose to use some alternative method.

 Therefore, a pos system can accept all payments including cash. But cash registers can’t. So I think pos should be the priority over the cash registers.
