Have more time for myself & my family

Learn to delegate more
Entrepreneurs typically struggle to let go. There are multiple benefits to be gleaned by delegating to your staff, including allowing you to have more time to focus on high-level tasks and empowering your employees with new skills are responsibilities.
If you struggle with the concept of cutting the apron strings entirely, Epos Now solutions allow you to set customisable permissions. This means you can be confident your supervisors and managers aren’t overstepping the mark with discounts and promotions. You can view all transactions on your smartphone from the comfort of your armchair.
Make my business more profitable
Securing profitability is the holy grail of any business. Epos Now can assist SMEs by cutting costs and driving revenue across all areas of your business. Epos Now's detailed reporting features mean you can track incoming revenue and outgoing costs with ease. This quickly allows you to sport opportunities to save.
Wastage, shrinkage and employee theft becomes a thing of the past when you have an aerial view of your business. Identify what works well and what doesn’t. Drop unpopular products and promote your best sellers. Intelligent reporting affords you full ownership of your own data, allowing you to be agile in your choices and be confident you are making fully informed business decisions.
Be a better boss
A business is only as good as its employees. This is particularly true of retail and hospitality businesses where staff are customer facing. Long hours and low pay mean both sectors suffer from high staff turnover which can be damaging to the customer experience. Being a good leader is certainly no easy task, but recognising achievement and celebrating success is a good way to incentivise high standards. Insightful reporting allows you to acknowledge top performing staff, or identify employees who need additional assistance training.
Many employees operating within retail and hospitality sectors are paid hourly and fit work around other responsibilities. Epos Now integrates with Deputy, the leading workforce management app which allows you streamline scheduling, track your staff and keep them informed via their mobile.
Become an active member of the community
As an independent, you are reliant on your customers repeat business. Being an active member of your local community means you’ll be at the forefront of your customer's minds. By rewarding regular customers you encourage customer loyalty. Epos Now operates a number of loyalty platforms which allow SMEs to reward their customers in the same way as large corporates. Personalised offers, gifts and promotions encourage customers to visit again.
Another key way to become a heart of the community is to ensure your prospective customers know about the products and services you offer. Effectively marketing your business is essential to its growth. By utilising an integrated marketing platform, you can build professional and targeted campaigns to drive custom, particularly during times of low footfall.
