Unlike big box stores, small businesses face a unique challenge when it comes to selecting and implementing a point-of-sale (POS) software system. Small business owners are often slammed with higher transaction costs, as their annual sales revenue doesn’t warrant a discount from the processing companies. What’s more, as a small business owner, it’s on you to research and select the best possible solution for your type of business, number of employees and degree of third party integration.
