Point of Sales To Help Dubai Retailers In 2014
Dubai being one of the top tourist attractions in the world, provides its millions of visitors with extravagant shopping malls and restaurants that remain over crowded around the clock. Amongst the most exciting activities in Dubai are some of the largest shopping malls in the world such as Dubai Mall, Mall of Emirates, Souq Madinat Jumeirah, Souq al Bahar, and many more. Dubai is also home of the Shopping Festival and Summer Surprises where people come to buy and purchase a wide variety of items.
All retailers are required to manage their daily transactions transparently, for which they need a web-based application called a point of sale system (POS). Business owners, store keepers, retailers, restaurant owners and other marketers love to use point of sales software and systems to make their sales easier to record and track.
What is Point of Sales (POS)?
Point of sales (POS) is often referred to as an electronic point of sale (EPOS). It is the place where sales are made and retail transactions are completed. This is the point where customers pay the merchant for the goods purchased or the services provided. At this point of sales, the retailer offers different payment options to the customer.
