More stablished businesses looking for a longterm, custom-built solution with industry-grade touchscreen monitors can get this from Vend and Epos Now, but not the other options above.
Food-and-drink businesses that want a highly intuitive system with great support can go for TouchBistro or Lightspeed Restaurant. Any retailer would be well-served by Vend’s advanced inventory system that is user-friendly, affordable and popular, but Lightspeed Retail comes at a close second.
Square Point of Sale works well for small food-and-drink businesses (it has the perfect combination of features for cafés), small retail shops, mobile businesses and professional services. If features are missing, you have many integration options to expand on business functions.
Small businesses – or mobile merchants with infrequent sales – can also thrive with a general POS app like Zettle Go which is popular in the UK, or another free POS system.
