Today, utilizing a mobile POS system has become a necessity for a number of lawn and garden retailers. There are many benefits to using a mobile point-of-sale solution in order to streamline your day-to-day operations.

Mobility allows you to sell your products wherever your customers are gathering and allows your sales associates to access a variety of store information in the palm of their hand. With mobile POS, they can track units by the size, color, and packaging, such as individual or flats of plants, for inventory, ordering, and reporting. Additionally, unlimited bar codes allow them to track the items sold from multiple vendors, such as seed packets. Flexibility is especially important when working with a wide range of customers and vendors. Mobile POS can provide landscapers and contractors with quotes for specific jobs and the ability to pay on account.  They can track products by client and make payments after the job is complete.

During peak season, lawn and garden stores experience an overwhelming amount of customers at the checkout registers. Checking out customers quickly is a key feature of mobile POS as it can bust long lines by completing transactions in the aisle rather than have customers wait in a long line to checkout. This gives your employees the opportunity to get out from behind the cash register or back office and out on the sales floor.

With mobile POS, your employees can also access shoppers purchase history, preferences and personalized offers. Using this material provides a more personalized experience for customers by tailoring recommendations, ratings and reviews, and product comparisons. By offering customers these options, you can better understand what motivates their purchases and generate customer loyalty through great customer service.

Mobile POS has quickly become a popular investment for business owners in the green landscape. With ease of use and extensive capabilities, you can sufficiently run your store and offer your consumers a seamless shopping experience. .
