The wonderful and beautiful hot and sunny summertime is the perfect time of year to get out of your normal working situation. If you’re used to working within the confines of the four walls that make up your place of business, you’d probably agree that changing things up a little bit is in order. With the weather so nice, why not venture outdoors?
The summer season gives you the perfect opportunity to take your business where your customers are instead of just waiting for them to come to you. Attend trade shows, become a vendor at outdoor festivals, go to sporting events and find every opportunity you can to grow your company’s reach and boost your sales.
Utilizing wireless technology will help to grow your business.
Naturally, if you’re conducting business off-property, it’s wise to utilize the technology that will allow you to process sales. At Canadian POS, we’re very proud to offer the Poynt Smart Terminal, which is a revolutionary wireless POS machine that is changing the way business owners accept payments. However, before we get any further into this fantastic innovation, allow us to remind you of the various benefits you get when you go wireless.
Mobile devices give your customers greater access to your store.
Who doesn’t use a smartphone these days? When Canadians shop online, they’re often doing so using their smartphones. Enabling your company website to be mobile-friendly is practically a must. As Mizzy Moore explains on BusinessTown.com, everything from reloading gift cards and renewing memberships to making quick and easy payments can be done via mobile.
“Allowing mobile payments for your business will increase sales by encouraging spontaneous purchases,” she writes, “It will also streamline your payment process and potentially simplify your invoice and billing system. Your employees should also be adequately trained to regularly use mobile devices as well. Employees can then more easily engage in social networking, manage their calendars, and check email.”
Is your business part of the food industry?
If so, going the wireless way couldn’t be more beneficial. Think delivery. Even though people enjoy going to restaurants during the summer, it’s always a good idea to offer delivery options. With a wireless POS system, your delivery personnel will be able to accept credit card and debit card payments the moment the food is delivered to your customers.
Not to mention, ordering online is the way of the world these days. “69% of customers order food using mobile,” reveals GloriaFood.com, “Whether on a break, stuck in traffic, or riding the bus, virtually anyone will place an order quickly and painlessly. In fact, this is a better, and highly desirable alternative to waiting until getting home and placing the order over the phone.”
In our recently-posted “Helping Your Food Truck To Have Its Hottest Summer Ever” blog, we highlighted just how necessary it is for members of the restaurant industry to invest in wireless technology. Most specifically, the Poynt Smart Terminal enables you to accept credit and debit payments anywhere, at any time!
