POSGuys Grocery POS System

January 15, 2013

We have a new POS System available and hopefully it’ll fit well in grocery stores or delis. Maybe even a hardware store if you sell things by weight. This is the Grocery POS System, another of our pre-configured POS Systems.

POSGuys Grocery POS System

The system was created because many customers have called in asking for a pre-made grocery system, but we didn’t have one available. Our tech team have been known to setup a retail system to support a scale, but we really wanted something online with all the requisite parts together.

We’ve built the Grocery POS System to meet the needs of high volume retailers who sell products both by barcode and weight. The system comes complete with POS Computer, Monitor, Programmable Keyboard, Scanner / Scale, Cordless Scanner, Receipt Printer, and Cash Drawer. That’s a lot of stuff.

POS Computer:
The POS-X EVO PC4 Pro computer included in the system has the power to handle even massive inventory databases with ease. Powered by an Intel Core i3 processor and 4 GB of RAM, the computer makes short work of product lookups and inventory checks. You also get a full complement of interface ports on the back of the EVO PC4, ensuring the plethora of peripherals can make purchase in the system.

Programmable Keyboard:
Preh’s MCI3100 keyboard consolidates 10-key functionality, credit card reading, and programmable key entry into a remarkably durable housing. We have reviewed this keyboard on video, hanging about 20 pounds of weight from either side while entering data successfully. 23 additional programmable keys are fantastic for putting in unmarked or often scanned products, like fruits or gum or something.

Scanner / Scale Combo:
In-counter scanner / scale combos are tanks. There’s a reason you still see PSC Magellans deployed even though they were bought by Datalogic and rebranded like 5 years ago. We’re running with the Honeywell Stratos 2400 in our POS system, mostly because we have had pretty great success in installations with this specific model. It has a 30 pound weight limit, so unless you’re selling lead bricks you should be fine. The two omnidirectional laser scanners are incredibly fast, so even if you’re throwing products across they’ll get scanned.

Cordless Scanner:
You can’t always use the scanner/scale for products you sell. Like dog food, or big boxes of soda that your customer doesn’t want to pull out from under the cart. So for those hulking monstrosities, you have the toughest cordless scanner we’ve ever seen- the Motorola LI4278. We drove over one of these barcode scanners with a BMW station wagon and it still works fine. It also has a 3 foot scan range on retail barcodes, so you don’t really have to stretch to get a good read either.

Receipt Printer:
Epson’s TM-T88V prints out receipts at a blisteringly fast pace, so even if a customer just bought like… 400 dollars worth of groceries, the printout will not be a hold up. A 12 inch per second print speed is terrific for long receipts. In terms of durability, the printer’s mean time between failure is 360,000, or about 41 years of use.

Cash Drawer:
The high security MMF Advantage Cash Drawer is going to keep your money safe all day long. Along with standard features like sturdy bill weights and multiple under-till media slots, the Advantage features a locked compartment connected to one of said media slots, ensuring things such as checks and large bills can be stored without fear of them walking away. The Advantage also sports a 4 million cycle solenoid lifespan, running smoothly for countless years.

Software:
We have had a lot of success setting up PCAmerica’s Cash Register Express for use with scales, and the powerful software handles even massive inventory databases. The easy-to-use software uses SQL Express for the database, scaling well to bigger operations and allowing for easy multi-lane setups.

All together, these parts make for a powerful means to handle the high volumes grocery checkstands experience. If you have a grocery store and see growth in your future, our Grocery POS System is a great first step.

Retail POS SystemPOSGuys.com has partnered with Mercury Payment Systems and Retail Capital to provide new retailers and restaurant owners with Pre-Financed POS Systems. Looking to cut down the initial investment for new businesses, the Pre-Financed POS System defers the cost of hardware with credit card batch fees.

“The initial costs starting a business can be prohibitive. From general infrastructure, hardware, to initial inventory orders, many businesses feel tremendous up-front financial strain,” said Travis Chun, Director of Operations for POSGuys.com. “By going with a Pre-Financed POS System, businesses defer initial investment costs of anywhere between three and ten thousand dollars, money that can be put to other vital uses.”

Businesses that apply for credit card processing through Mercury Payment Systems are eligible for the Pre-Financed POS System. With a 24-48 hour turnaround and 90% approval rate, getting approved is remarkably straightforward and easy.

To ensure quick setup, customers’ point of sale databases are preinstalled before shipment and on-site installation by a certified technician is included, further speeding the setup process. POSGuys also provides over-the-phone training to teach employees and managers the day-to-day functions of their POS software.

The Pre-Financed POS System is paid via 10% of daily credit card batches through Mercury Payment Systems. There are no minimum payments or monthly bills, eliminating the headache that can be associated with other financing firms. By paying a set percentage of credit card batches, businesses can scale payments as they grow.
