What is EPoS?

"In the first four months of
having the system it was
already keeping costs
down, it’s fantastic."
Liam, Business Director

WHAT DOES IT CONSIST OF?
An EPOS system generally consists of a VDU (Visual Display Unit) and a PC. The system may also include additional equipment such as a scanner or a printer, depending on the requirements of the business.

Further additional equipment that may come as part of the system include:

  • Cash Draws
  • Chip & Pin
  • Customer Displays
  • Keyboards
  • Tablets
  • Weighing Scales

EPoS Till MonitorMONITOR
The touch screen monitor allows the customers to see exactly what they are buying, or alternatively what they are hoping to buy. The touch screen monitor is better than that of an ordinary monitor as the customer is actively involved in the purchase rather than waiting for the machine to do it all for them. Touch screen monitors mean that the checkout is on a whole a lot faster than usual.

EPoS Barcode ScannerSCANNER
The products' barcodes are scanned using this device as a way of purchasing the item. The process of scanning the barcode means that the EPOS system records the purchase and sends information to the monitor that then shows the customer the item and price of the item.
