Yesterday, I sat in on a demo of a new software that we heard about. It’s called ShopKeep. This software is a Point of Sale system that operates on your iPad and is accessed through the cloud. I have to say, it’s pretty cool.
With ShopKeep POS, you can add your items to the system and set default prices. Once your items are setup, cashiers can easily choose the items to add to the sale by clicking the button for that item or scanning the item in. If you want to track your customers, you can easily add the customer name to the sale. Then, the cashier picks a payment type (works with most major credit card processors) and can add a gratuity if need be. Upon completion of the sale, the receipt can be emailed or printed for the customer.
If you are a coffee shop, bakery, lunch counter, etc you can add modifiers to your items that will prompt the cashier to ask the customer how they want their item. If some choices would increase the price of the item, ShopKeep will also automatically upcharge any modifiers that you set. Talk about an easy way to add the bacon and hold the ketchup!
In the back office, managers/owners can utilize the dashboard to manage the inventory as well as the employees and time clock. Robust reporting gives you a full view as to what is going on in your business.
You can completely customize your register in that you can choose from various colors of iPad stands and you can also add a cash drawer, receipt printer and credit card swipe.
Please take a look at the video below to give you a better idea of how ShopKeep operates. If you would like more information, please feel free to reach out to us!
