Certainly the most frequently asked question of us is not "how long will it take to pay for the software?", but rather "how much does a system cost?". I can completely understand and appreciate the mentality when there are so many POS software sales people out there pushing their "low monthly fee", without highlighting their features (or lack thereof). If cost and a spiel from a slick salesman are NOT the most important factors in your evaluation of point of sale software, we have created a calculator just for you! I'm not saying cost shouldn't be a factor...it most certainly should be a major factor. However, if you can find a system that can assist in increasing your bottom line; through expense savings and revenue generation; then why pay the "low" monthly fee for something that is no better than a cash register?
It doesn’t matter if your business is laser tag, roller skating, trampoline parks or anything in between – one thing that every family entertainment center needs is signage. Whether you are showing concession prices above your POS, movie times in your theater, or just saying Happy Birthday to one of your party guests of honor, nothing draws a customer’s eyes like a well-designed sign.
As any Canadian merchant can tell you, debit cards are handled a bit differently north of the border. The Interac system provides a much different experience for the end user than American Visa-based debit cards.
Have you ever noticed that the chores we dislike the most are often the tasks where we are most reluctant to change our methods? I cannot count how many times my wife has complained to me about spending hours creating a schedule that finally balances all of our employees requests for time off with their complaints that they need more hours, only to get a last-minute "emergency" time off request that changes everything. So being the ever-helpful and thoughtful husband, I would usually reply with "Why don't you ditch the excel spreadsheets and the sticky notes and find some good scheduling software?"
