Finding the right point of sale system can make a huge difference to your company’s efficiency, and for more reasons than most people realize. While it’s incredibly important your equipment does what you need it to do in terms of facilitating transactions and processing payments, today’s POS setups are designed to do a lot more. They’re also increasingly designed for specialization, which means choosing the right one is a matter of getting the features your company needs or having to find work-around options for your day to day customer interactions.
A good example is the restaurant industry, which has occasionally gone through periods where the only POS options that supported features like table management were expensive, specialized units that took advantage of their position in the marketplace. Luckily, the Clover system POS has upended those expectations by introducing a fully modular, completely versatile option. Today’s Clover systems are even better, with builds for several niche uses as well as an expansive and easy to customize Clover 2.0, the system favored by car wash owners as well as business managers in many other retail industries. Let’s take a look at why car wash owners just love it.
Inventory Management and Scheduling
Two of the biggest headaches for managers in small business settings that focus on retail tend to be schedules and inventory tracking, and the Clover POS is set up to help you with both. Use the inventory tracking app to record your inventory counts and let it adjust them as you make sales each day, making it easier to reconcile your numbers and calculate shrinkage. It’s not only more efficient, it’s more likely to show you if there is a pattern of items going missing, making it easier for you to reduce preventable losses. The scheduling app lets you put together shift schedules while you work, without an extra device, and it makes them easily visible to any employee when clocking in and out. Get ahead of scheduling requests, modify shifts on the fly, and keep everyone up to date as circumstances shift!
Take Any Payment You Like
The Clover 2.0 has a bunch of features that used to be available with add-ons only, including the ability to take chip card payments. EMV transactions are now native with its other built-in credit card processing features, so you don’t need an extra terminal to take cards with Clover. All you need to do is order this POS system for car wash owners, configure it for your merchant account and processor, and go!
Accessible Pricing and Selection
The best part about Clover is the range of choices and price points. The core system with all its functionality is priced accessibly for most small businesses, and working with a processor who also sells equipment like Merchant Account Solutions can make it even easier to get your hands on one. If you find the right deal, you might even be able to get use of the equipment free with the right contract terms. If you are paying full price, you also have several models to choose from to help you find the right price. Car wash owners will love the Clover Flex, which lets you use the familiar Clover system to make sales outside where your customers are, in addition to selling inside from a traditional cash drawer. That makes it easier for people who just need a quick wash but don’t intend to buy extras, allowing you to move more cars through.
