Occasionally, we see retailers tracking the sale of some items outside their Point of Sale software. While the retailer usually presents what they think is a sound reason, the reality is that tracking sales in any retail business through more than one system is poor management.

We have seen several situations of employee fraud where some sales were tracked outside the POS software. This is one key risk. The risk is diminished if you put all sales through the one software package.

While some present excuses such as delays at the counter, we can point to enough success stories to dispel such concerns.

Retailers who want fast and accurate sales processing at the counter will track all sales through the one software package. If you’re not sure how to achieve this, talk with one of our support people.
