EPOS systems are easy to use and help operate a variety of retail businesses – ranging from small, semi-permanent open-fronted booths or stands to large multi-store retail businesses. The best EPOS systems work in a wide range of settings, from small kiosks selling a limited number of items for sale to multi-store chains selling tens of thousands of items. Web-based EPOS systems are great options as they are so scalable and flexible.
