iPad POS

iPad POSMuch like accepting mobile payments, an iPad POS system takes your business on-the-go putting your cash registers and staff where it’s most convenient to your customers. If you run a food truck, sell your goods at Sunday farmer’s markets, or work a sporting event or concert, a tablet point of sale would be a great solution for your business.

How An iPad POS Works

Like a regular point of sale, an iPad POS is a combination of hardware and software that enables you to manage the day-to-day operations of your business, complete credit card payment processing, and run analytics and reports on how your business is performing.
The only difference between a normal point of sale system and an iPad POS is that a tablet lets you take your business mobile. No longer will you have to be chained to a counter to accept payments! Tablet devices have a variety of functions including processing transactions and returns, inventory management, provide customer assistance anywhere in your store or business, price items instantly, and more!
At Gravity, we like to say we’re agnostic when it comes to point of sale systems. We don’t offer only one POS, because we feel like that limits your options in finding the right solution for your individual needs. Instead, we put the power back in your hands by consulting with you to find a solution that fits exactly how you want to process. To learn more about our POS systems, click here.
