When you buy a retail business that has POS software already running in the business you will often rely on the existing owner of the business to train you in how to use the POS software
Sometimes, the existing owner of the retail business is too busy with working in the business and the final days prior to the sale to properly train you prior to exiting the retail business.
Most existing business owners have not been trained themselves in how to professionally and thoroughly train someone in how to use POS software. This is a specialist need. It takes specialist skills.
All this leads to the new owner of a retail business coming into the retail business under trained, under skilled and inadequately prepared too drive the tool that sits at the heart of business success or failure, the POS software.

Imagine a situation where a problem has occurred because of the incorrect use of the software, a problem costing money, which you do not discover for weeks or months. The cost could be considerable.
Professional POS software training for anyone buying a business already using POS software is a perfect way to avoid mistakes and to know what to watch out for from others using the software.
