With modern business using so many different forms of payment, things can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially if you’re a merchant. You have your cash sitting your cash register, you have may have debit payments awaiting their hour in ACH processing, you have transactions conducted by credit card, and you may even have money that’s been transferred from a virtual wallet on a phone directly into your merchant account.
All of that is well and good, but it also creates more tasks that need to be handled in the name of one function; making sure that all your sales are correctly tallied up so you have an accurate accounting of your profits, and the money you’ve received over the day all goes where it’s supposed to.
If you’re looking for an easier way to settle the transactions of the day—and even get better information for more accurate financial decision making—maybe it’s time to try using the Poynt Smart Terminal System.
The big attraction of the Poynt smart terminal system is consolidating the many different payment forms into one device. But one other big bonus this technology offers is bring your finances to “the cloud.” In other words, as you fulfill your many different transactions over the course of the day—or your employees do—this information is not just stored on the device, it’s stored online as well.
This means that even if you’re not anywhere near the smart terminal itself, if you have access to the Internet, you can look up your accounts and see what transactions have been undertaken, which payment formats were the most used, and what kind of business you did that way. You’ll have complete access to your financial information and can make more accurate, informed decisions about your business thanks to the information you now have access to anytime you need it.
You can even organize the way you handle payments to your distinct needs. Because of the combination of online access and a large, friendly touch screen on the Poynt smart terminal itself, you’re not confined to a single method of handling payments. If you run a café or restaurant, your payment interface can be configured to reflect that, as can the way transactions are actually processed. You can even add in additional apps to integrate with your operations and help both your finances and your business. Connecting Poynt to major POS services, and even apps for managing employee shifts are all possible thanks to the flexible nature of the technology.
Now, you don’t have to run your transactions from a cash register, while handling debit payments from a card terminal, organize your employee schedule on a computer, and look at your receipts and accounting from your laptop. You can do it all on the device if you want. The choice is up to you.
If you have any questions about how Poynt can help your business, just ask us. We want you to start enjoy faster, better, more convenient payment processing as quickly as you can.
