Not giving in into new technologies and ways of making your business ROI positive is a very often occurrence, especially in the category of long-running mum and pop shops. There’s nothing bad in not being the one who breaks the ice but, if you are constantly delaying something that is going to become the norm anyway, that’s bound to negatively affect your business. Like for instance, integrating wireless POS barcode scanners into the operation of your business. In today’s blog post, I’ll talk specifically about that – the benefits of wireless POS barcode scanners. Stay tuned.

Up-To-Date Inventory

Since the barcode of every product is going to be processed by a POS (Point of Sale) barcode scanner, the information about it will be stored accordingly. This means that your store’s inventory will be updated as soon as the product has been run through the wireless POS scanner, which is going to be confirmed by the purchase of that same product. If a purchase is not made after scanning the code, simply canceling the scanned product will be enough for you to be able to return it back in the inventory.

Customer Base

Keeping track of your customers means that you will have an insight into the number of times they have made a purchase from your store and what they bought. With a POS scanner, you will be able to keep track of these things simply by the type of payment they use, which will enable you to see which customers are loyal. Knowing all this will be easier for you to make a loyalty program or customer specific bonuses and discounts. These insights will also allow you to personalize their experience next time they visit your store.

A Consistent Stream of Supplies

Since your inventory is going to be updated as you make sales, you will also know when to make your next purchase of supplies. Knowing how much you have of each product will allow you to purchase supplies ahead of time. This will, in turn, generate a consistent stream of supplies, thus you won’t ever go out of stock, except if you forget to order something.

Use of 2D

A Wireless POS scanner is also capable of scanning 2D barcodes and thanks to that, it is way faster at scanning 1D barcodes as well. The way 2D barcodes store information is actually pretty smart and POS scanners are taking advantage of that. Considering their size and compactness, this is a big benefit over other types of barcode scanners. If you have products that make use of QR codes  then a wireless POS scanner is going to be just perfect for you.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.
