Top 7 Retail Electronic Point Of Sale System (ePOS) Software
5 (100%) 19 vote[s]

EPOS or PoS is an abbreviation for electronic point of sale system (or point-of-sale, or point of service system). Self-contained, computerized equipment that performs all tasks of a store checkout counter. It verifies transactions, provides sales reports, coordinates inventory data, and performs several other services normally provided by employees.

Retail EPOS Software uses computers or specialised terminals that can be combined with other hardware, such as barcode readers, cash draws etc for accurately and instantly capturing the sale / transaction.


This can be a little misleading as most POS (point of sale or purchase) solutions are electronic in this day and age. The difference between the two is typically the recording and updating of stock within the business. For example a POS system could be a standalone electronic till. This records the point of purchase, but does not automatically update the stock level for that product; this is done in a manual process. With an EPOS solution, the stock data is automatically updated, saving great time and increasing efficiency.

A system whereby electronic tills are used to process customer transactions in a retail outlet. Local Retail EPOS Software are usually connected to a central computer system, so that financial and inventory-related data can be exchanged between the store and head office, allowing automatic accounting and replenishment.

In a Retail EPOS Software, sales and payment information are saved electronically, including the Sold product, amount of the sale, the date and place of the transaction.

Retail EPOS Software can mean a retail shop, a checkout counter in a shop, or a location where a transaction occurs in this type of environment.

Retail EPOS Software can be efficiently deployed in retail stores, grocery store, confectionery store, convenience store, cash and carry, departmental store, whole sale Stores, supermarkets , costcutter stores, pound shops, take aways, Restaurants, hotels, hospitality systems, Cosmetics Stores, Shoe Shops, Clothing stores, garment shops as well as all types of retail environments. In short, if something can be sold, it can be sold where a Retail EPOS Software is in use.
