Point of Sales Systems – Choosing the Right POS for Your Business

leave a comment »

I have spent the last 15 years in the Hospitality Industry, this has given me the opportunity to explore various Point of Sales systems. I would like to use this knowledge to give you and idea on what you should look for in a POS System.Purchase and Maintenance CostThe First thing anyone will consider is the cost, many companies will offer systems that might seem to be the same but have a huge difference in price. Many times this cost is excused since the software behind the POS will offer you functionality that will help you minimize Labour Cost and or expenses for other software in the long run. Here is an example. The Micros POS system will offer you a stock option and a food cost option which can add slightly to the cost, if you however choose to not get this option, you will surly need someone to manual calculate cost (man hours) and enter this information in your accounting system. This goes for many features of the system. Make sure you take the time and sit with the Sales Agent and tell him to give you strong points of features and functionality. The second part is the Annual support fee, make clear what it includes it is important that any broken equipment is replaced in due time so it does not cause operational issues to your business. In any case always negotiate you will find that they do have room for discount.Functionality and ease of useNo matter how advanced and great the Point of sales system is, it is still operated by employees. While your POS might stay with you for a long time, employees might come and go. A strong factor here is the Ease of Use of the system and the cost of training for new employees. Training sessions can be very costly thus it is best to have a few members of the team who know the system well enough to train others. This can safe money and make your business run smoother when key employees leave.Once the POS system is installed the installer will customize the interface for you, they will add buttons for products, discounts, cancellations and other mechanics. The POS Company should consider the business needs and work flow, but vice versa you should use and consider the knowledge and experience of the installer. Ask what similar business do and what problems they faced. This will help you run in to the same problems which again can cost money and man hours.Network Capabilities and interfacingMany times your POS system will interface with other systems like accounting systems. Make sure your Accounting System and your POS system can interface and that this has been previously tested. Usually this is done via an XML import/export or even a life interface via database connection. Many POS systems also accept remote connections for reporting and administration. So if you want to add new products, print reports or adjust prices and menus you should be able to do this from your office or even at home with a VPN connection. Ask your sales person for availability of these features.If your Restaurant or bar is part of a bigger picture like a chain or hotel, make sure it interfaces with the other systems used. In a hotel for example you will want to let guest charge their meals and drinks to their room and pay upon check out. If your POS does not interface with the Property Management System than this will not be a possibility. If your Restaurant is part of a Chain you will want to be able to change the menus and prices chain wide and not waste hours of doing the same change in each of your restaurants.So these are a few points you should consider obviously there are a lot more but I can not list them all in this article, if you need any more information feel free to contact me.

Hand Blown Glass German Shepherd Figurine

leave a comment »

Hand blown glass German Sheppard figurine is a stunning collectible crystal sculpture and a wonderful gift. Kevin Prochaska, Disneyland glass blower for 10 years is the artist. A lifelong dream to become a veterinarian and work with these wonderful dogs took a sudden detour when I discovered the world of glass. Now I am able to meld together my love of animals with work I truly enjoy. Sculpture is a must for every German shepherd collector. I make the figurine entirely by hand from borosilicate crystal. The brilliant rainbow of colors is created when I apply pure gold to the glass while it is still molten. German shepherd is 4 inches long and 3 inches tall. Your purchase includes an attractive information card trimmed with gold foil making this a lovely gift.

Creating A Web Presence For The Non-Technical Author, Entrepreneur

leave a comment »

Not everyone has a bottomless bank account or endless resources at their fingertips. By now, we’ve all heard about the simplicity of blogging and social networking through popular interfaces like Blogger, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. For the “starving author or entrepreneur” so-to-speak, there are some very simple things you can do online to begin building a web presence, making it easy for others to locate and communicate with you; and for you to communicate with others.I call these tips simple answers for the non-technical author and entrepreneur to get noticed. (I’m a big fan of do-it-yourself endeavors.) Here’s a list of quick ideas I’ve found helpful:I strongly encourage authors and entrepreneurs to check out these services:1. Google Places: If you don’t know about this nifty service, you should. If you have a business STREET ADDRESS, then rush on over and get listed in Google Places. By doing so, when people look you up by your organization’s name, the first listing that will pop up will be your STREET ADDRESS. But that’s not all, you also get to add a business description, your web address, phone number, up to four YouTube Videos, operating hours and other useful info. All of which will help you BE FOUND on the web. If a person clicks the address, it immediately brings up map and driving direction options. If you also happen to have Google Earth installed on your computer, you can take that search to the NEXT VIRTUAL LEVEL and visit the doorstep of any business on the planet. (Yahoo, Bing and other search engines have this service as well. Google, however, seems to be a forerunner in this area.)2. Google Sites: Did you know you could create a FREE (Ad Free) website using Google Sites? No gimmicks or tricks, really. The sites you create are real simple, template based, and customizable. I played around with this feature some months ago, and may come back to it later. I’m learning that it doesn’t hurt to have more than one website giving SEO these days. There all kinds of things you could do with a service like this to enhance your presence on the web. I haven’t done anything official here, but have tried out the service.3. Google Profile: Now this service is really cool. It gives you the ability to add a website profile page. Why is it so great? Well, it’s another way you can be found in the search engines. You choose what is listed AND who can see it. I include on business information in my profile.4. Google Calendar: In my opinion, this is the best calendar on the web. You can share your calender with specific people; keep it private (your eyes only); Share it with a specific group of people or integrate it with your website. I use Google Calendar for my personal and business scheduling. You can allow others to add events to your calendar, share the calendar with someone, set reminders that shoot emails your way and more!5. Google Voice: By far, this is the most EXCITING addition to the Google suite so far for me. Google Voice is your personal virtual phone number. Weird, but worth it. They give you a free LOCAL PHONE NUMBER that is attached to your Google account that enables you to make actual phone calls, setup voicemail, send and receive text messages, and receive voicemail by email. There are no words to express how innovative this service is.I’ve only introduced you to five of my favorite Google applications for personal or business use. I use a host of other Google services like webmaster tools and such. There are tons of others that you can tap into on this journey of getting seen and heard on the web as well! If ever there was a company to follow in your “World Wide Web” endeavors, this is one to keep your eye on… and NO, I do not work for Google! I’m just a woman who happens to love electronics and technology like some love clothes and shoes.Theresa is the apostle and founder of Voices of Christ Literary Ministries International, and the author of “The Scribal Anointing Series.”There’s one more that I must mention. It’s called Google Dashboard. You can sign in and manage all of your active Google applications from one place! In other words, if you’re using the applications mentioned above, you can sign into your dashboard to see your latest activities, explore new features, remove services and more from one spot.These guys have thought of everything! Enjoy!Copyright 2010 Theresa Harvard Johnson
