It’s a great time to be a small business or restaurant owner if you are a millennial. A recent study showed by the SBCD showed that 49% of Millennials want to start their own business in the next three years. Over half would say goodbye to the daily grind to start their own business with the right resources.
Good job there are plenty of Point of Sale systems to help you get ahead of the curve.
So, why jump on the entrepreneurial wagon? How can a great POS System help me?
INDEPENDENCE. The biggest plus to being your own boss is Independence. You make the decisions; you choose what you do and when you do it. It is important to arm yourself with technology that can grow with you. A POS system can add devices easily. Opening an additional stall at a farmer’s market? Adding a pop up shop during peak season? POS can help you with that, you don’t even need more hardware. You can do it from that smartphone of yours!
CONTROL. Control is a wonderful thing. As a business owner, from concept to creation every inch of the business is in your hands. Complete immersion in your business can be thrilling and overwhelming, so why not use POS to work FOR you. POS improves inventory visibility, helps track sales and works with you to manage total counts and shelf inventory. With a system that can track product to such a high caliber, you will be able to make future inventory predictions more accurately.
FLEXIBILITY Perhaps the biggest plus to running a small business is flexibility. Smaller staff sizes allow businesses to develop personal relationships with the customer, leading to repeat business. With a system like POS you can make sure the customer experience is the top priority. Freeing up employees from time consuming book keeping to focus on activities related to boosting clientele service. Faster checkouts and easy to use systems have customers leaving already planning their next visit.

While COCARD’s REVONU POS is already well known for powering payments at restaurants, salons, and retail establishments, it also helps Holy Cross Monastery manage their gift shop inventory, payments and book sales.
Brother Scott: Our system is in the gift shop where we sell a mixture of books, religious gifts, candy bars and snacks.
Brother Scott: We have been working with COCARD for a while, primarily because the previous POS system we were using had recommended COCARD as a merchant services provider. Also, when EMV came about we were looking at how to accommodate that. We had the option to stay with a previous system or change to what COCARD was recommending. COCARD’s support had always been quite good so we felt confident in going with their recommendation, which was REVONU POS.
Brother Scott: The previous software we used had been minimally updated since the 90’s. So, now that we have been able to use the newer technology, particularly the cloud based software to access the back office from anywhere, our store has been running a lot smoother.
Brother Scott: Again, the newer technology and back office cloud integration is great! Also the staff in the store really like the ease of the touch- screen functions on the terminal.Read MoreRead More
