POSiSales for iPad Offers Merchants a Pay Once, Pay No More POS SystemJune 5, 2017
Mont Albert, Victoria, Australia – Pentagon Digital today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of POSiSales 2.0.5, an important update to their popular point of sale app for the iPad. POSiSales is part of an advanced point of sale (POS) system which addresses the needs of small businesses who require a full-featured sales and transaction management system that is much more reasonably priced than expensive and hard to learn full-fledged computer-based systems.
The POSiSales iPad app is the software component to an advanced, yet easy to use point of sale system, made up of the app running on an iPad, an Apple Airport Express to handle the private wireless networking needs, a Star Micronics TSP100 receipt printer plugged in to the Apple Airport, and a cash drawer. Combined, these components make up an efficient POS system allowing businesses to place orders, invoice products, email orders to customers, print to multiple printers, and much more.
“Small business owners have long been required to purchase expensive computer-based point of sale systems for use in their stores. On top of a large initial investment, they have also been forced to pay monthly contractual fees,” says Pentagon Digital CEO Dr Helmut Imberger. “The POSiSales sales system makes use of a low-cost iPad, Airport Express or Extreme, a receipt printer, and a cash drawer to create a complete, easy to use point of sale system. Plus, there are no monthly fees. Once the customer pays the initial costs, it’s all theirs to keep forever!”
The POSiSales system is a fast and extremely reliable POS system, offering excellent return on investment. The system requires almost no training to operate, and can be set up in as little as 30 minutes. Once in place, POSiSales integrates into any type of business, be it a bakery, cafe, food truck, small grocery store, ticketing agency, gift stores, or almost any other kind of business that can be thought of.
