About Epos Now

Epos Now’s cloud-based point of sale offers a single, centralized platform from which retail and hospitality businesses can manage inventory, prices, multi-channel sales, and much more. The system can integrate with third-party and in-house payment processing and online sales and ordering systems. It also provides a customizable reporting dashboard managers can use to efficiently oversee trade.

Epos Now transaction software offers flexible settings to help users control and streamline the sales process, including sticky category options, button ordering, staff permissions, and payment tender options.

Epos Now can process card payments through in-house or third-party providers. Epos Now Payments accepts Apple and Google payments, including watch and smartphone devices, and all major credit card providers, at affordable, blended rates. Pay-by-link technology also allows customers who aren't present to pay for your products. The integrated software then generates card payment reports alongside your regular transaction reporting.

The Back Office, available through app and web browser on and off-site, helps with product, inventory, customer, and employee management with easy-to-use business software.

For example, with stock tracking features, Epos Now will send daily alerts notifying users of low stock to make ordering easier than ever.

Sales reports keep users informed about product performance, while employee reports make it crystal clear which members of the team could use training or assistance, all while calculating payroll in real-time.

Meanwhile, by maintaining a central customer database, Epos Now permits users to send invoices, grant credit, and collect marketing information easily from customers. Offering extensive reporting options, Epos Now allows users to gain real-time, actionable insight into sales, product, and employee performance.

For businesses with specific needs, Epos Now has partnered with dozens of industry-leading businesses to integrate third-party software and in-house extras into the system, such as Xero, Wix, Shopify, LoyaltyDog, and many more. There are additional apps that can be added to the POS software to create bespoke, flexible business solutions that work with the needs of the user.


Key benefits of Epos Now

Epos Now’s flexible software options bring with them many benefits to those working within the retail and hospitality industries:

Choose your device.
Epos Now users manage their businesses through two main pieces of software. These include the main point of sale, used for sales, and the Back Office where business management is completed.

Business owners and managers can keep track of trade and manage their businesses no matter where they are, thanks to Epos Now’s cloud-based system. Sales can also be switched to different devices, protecting the business from hardware failure. All software works on the mobile app, on tablets, laptops, PCs and Apple devices, giving users full flexibility over what they trade and work on, as well as where they do it!

Adapt your service.
Epos Now offers businesses the ability to choose how they trade, with hundreds of modifiable features from small, handy choices like color-coded hotkeys and tender types, to integrations with some of your favorite business software providers like Sage, Xero, Loyalzoo, and more.

The AppStore provides access to over a hundred possible integrations, some free, some paid, all useful to the right business. You’ll find in-house and third-party apps that can speed up your service, expand your sales channels, and help you manage the business. These include:

1. Online stores, online ordering, app-based ordering for hospitality, and delivery.
2. Accounting software.
3. Loyalty and marketing apps.
4. Payroll, booking, and other back office aids.
5. Payment integrations with third-party processors.

Epos Now also gives users the option to adapt software through the API app, which can ensure their system meets the needs of even the most specialist businesses.

Learn more about your business.
Epos Now generates dozens of downloadable reports on every aspect of your trade as you trade. These reports help give users insights into where a business is weaker or stronger and inform decisions to keep it running as smoothly, efficiently, and profitably as possible.

These reports are generated in real-time, which means you can monitor minute-by-minute while away and can spot problems as soon as they appear.

Reporting covers inventory levels so that you don’t run out of stock, and your system will send you low-stock alerts to make sure nothing gets missed. Reports also keep you informed on individual transactions (for easy refund and complaint management), product performance (so you can promote your bestsellers and drop failing products), employee performance, customer habits, accounts and auditing, and much, much more.

Add Epos Now Payments.
While Epos Now customers can trade with third-party payment processors, Epos Now also have their own, in-house card machines that bring many benefits to a business.

Epos Now Payments is designed to work smoothly with Epos Now software and offers users one simple report, which makes it much simpler to keep track of than many competitors.

The products come in countertop, mobile, and mobile POS forms, which means users can take card payments and use POS in one device, which works well for roaming retail staff, or table-service restaurants.

We use it daily to run the bar at our sports club and it works for us.

Pros

All seems to work as you would expect. Adding products is simple, the reports are good. As we are a sports club, we can also add our members so they can load up with credit.

Cons

We haven't found anything in particular that doesn't work. Customer services always help quickly if there is an issue.

Be careful when you choose an epos system

Terrible.

Terrible.

Pros

The equipment looks modern and smart, the software was ook, easy read and accessible.

Cons

Payment! You cannot control it. Despite closing the account, you still get billed.There is no debit order you can control, they cleverly use the same account ordering Transport for London use, they have access and take money from your account as they please and all you can do is close your whole account and block it against normal merchant use. Bank fraud departments take too long to investigate and don't stop the impending fraud in time. This is a terrible extortion. BE VERY CAREFUL, DO NOT GIVE YOUR BUSINESS CARD AND ACCOUNT DETAILS TO EPOSNOW.Every email you receive from EPOSNOW is DO NOT REPLY! They don't make it easy to get hold of them.

But perhaps the worst part of my experience with Eposnow was the unexpected bills. I signed up for their service based on their promise of no hidden costs, but****** ONE YEAR after using******their system, I was hit with an unexpected bill for services I never agreed to. When I tried to reach out to their customer service team to get it sorted, I was met with the same unhelpful and unresponsive service as before. also they forced me to pay those service I never used and agreed.Sadly, I'm not the only one who has had issues with Eposnow's billing practices. A quick search online reveals countless other customers who have been hit with unexpected charges or bills long after they thought they had paid everything.Overall, I would strongly advise against using Eposnow for your business. They seem to be more interested in selling their product than providing any sort of quality service or supportRUN AWAY DONT USE VERY SLOW ALSO CAME WITH FAULTY.Ended up I had to spend another 3k to setting up other pos system.

Pros

"I had an extremely disappointing experience with Eposnow. Firstly, their customer service was incredibly unhelpful and unresponsive. I had an issue with my POS system and it took days to get any sort of response from their support team. When I finally did hear back from them, they weren't able to resolve my issue and I was left feeling frustrated and unsupported.To make matters worse, the product arrived late, long after my business's opening day. Despite the delay being entirely their fault, Eposnow didn't seem to care about the impact it had on my business. It was incredibly frustrating to have to make do without a proper point-of-sale system for several days, and it had a significant impact on my sales.

Cons

I dont have anything else to say for this company speechless

Overall they are a solid company. The system is intuitive enough that I can manipulate it to carry out more functions. Still I think that there are others that are not as savvy that would prefer not to have manipulate the software so much in order to accomplish the desired result.

Pros

Price and ability to manage my system remotely their website.

Cons

For a bar, I find myself creating similar items with different costs and prices for let's say differ pour sizes for different kegs. I wish they had a template that you can create with various pour sizes and are already linked to the master product. Then you just pick the pour sizes you want and instead the cost and Price nd you're done. All from one screen.

The promotion features can be very glitch at times.

Response from Epos Now

Hello Cesar.

Thanks for leaving us a review, it's great to hear that you like the system and the remote abilities.

It sounds like the product matrix app maybe useful to you regarding your pour sizes, it's a free app and will allow you to create variants for each product for volumes. If you are interested in this app it may be worth giving us a call to run through this with you.

Kind Regards
James
