The term “Point-of-Sale” (POS) commonly refers to the checkout area of a store but, more specifically, it is defined as the software and hardware that make up an electronic checkout system. Toy stores can especially benefit from the organization an electronic POS systems brings. Your passion for toys and your business should be matched by the ease of managing inventory, employee activity, and internal and external reporting from a toy store POS system.
Using an electronic checkout system rather than manual record-keeping can help eliminate human error in inventory. Typically a back office computer, linked to the front register, is used to keep track of stock received, sent back, purchased, or returned by customers. Keeping track of inventory this way will help identify and track sources of shrink within your system.
Employee hours, sales, information, and rate of returns can also be tracked using a toy store POS system. Using an electronic register system will help with record keeping about employee turnover, attendance, necessary paperwork, and sales rates by employee. Using a toy store POS system also keeps employee practices more consistent than manual entry or receipt creation.
