The holiday season is in full gear! As customers bustle in and out of your store crossing items off their lists, we thought it’d be a great idea to build a wishlist for our customers. Below are our top picks for 2017 that are sure to boost efficiency and make the day to day just that much better.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4
All the functionality of a computer with the look of a tablet. This laptop/tablet hybrid is perfect for your day to day routine. Launch your ERPLY POS and use it as a register all day, then switch over after close and use it as your Back Office computer. The Surface runs full versions of all programs in the Microsoft Office Suite and any other Windows-based programs. If you’re only going to ask for one thing off this list, this is what you’re looking for!
Prefer Apple’s ecosystem? No problem! Download our ERPLY POS App for the App Store and start selling. iPad’s can connect to Bluetooth or network printers, so you won’t have to worry about plugging anything in. The iPad is a sleek powerful tablet that’s perfect for all of your Point of Sale needs. With their biometric lock button, you can rest easy knowing your data is safe behind their security. Our Point of Sale works on the iPad Mini, iPad (2 or higher), iPad Pro, and iPad Air.
Credit Card Integration
Swiping cards externally from ERPLY can be a headache. You have more books to balance, more places to double check, and more chances for error. With credit card integration, payment can be taken and confirmed all within ERPLY. Our partners now support EMV for added security. Contact our partners Cayan or Vantiv to start setting up integration! Once you’re all set, you can schedule time with an ERPLY technician for our portion of the setup.
Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner
Did you know that ERPLY’s search function also works with barcode scanners? The Socket Bluetooth Scanner is a small, cordless scanner. It charges every time it’s placed back in the storage holster, so you never have to worry about battery life. By setting the barcode scanner to “keyboard mode,” it will automatically type out what it reads. You can also create, customize, and print labels using the built-in software in the ERPLY Back Office. Being able to quickly scan items means shorter wait times for the customer, which in turn means more customers per hour!
If you’re going to get a barcode scanner, you’re going to want barcode labels. Zebra Label Printers can connect to your computer in just a few clicks so you can start printing labels for all your products quickly, cleanly, and most important, easily. Zebra supports a large variation in the size and shape of labels depending on your needs. Check out their website to see what works best for you!
Star Micronics has a huge variety of printer options to choose from. Here are some of our suggestions, but check out their website for more options and details. Is your register an iPad or tablet? Try the Star TSP650II with Bluetooth. Do you want to be able to print from anywhere in the store? Try the Star TSP100III with network support. Connect your devices to the same internet network and print from farther distances than Bluetooth. Need something portable? Try the Star SM-T300i, a portable and rugged Bluetooth printer for those on the go.
