Every transaction will go through your POS system, so it’s important to consider all your options before picking the right hospitality POS system for your business.

There are several ways to pay for your new POS solution, and several software, hardware and service options that can make a big difference to your bottom line.

It’s vital to look at everything on the market to best determine the right system for you. This way you’re guaranteed to be happy with your choice, and start reaping the benefits.

This is everything you need to know before you make your choice, and how best to pay for this important and necessary expense.

What to look for in a POS system

Which POS system suits your business depends on how technologically-savvy you are, how large your business is, and how much time you’re willing to sink into the system setup.

Simple systems generally comprise standard software that you load onto pre-existing hardware. You generally won’t have as much technical support, and the learning curve might be greater.

Alternatively, you can employ a full-service solution that provides software, hardware, training and ongoing support. Impos Plus is one such end-to-end hospitality POS, offering your business a complete premium POS feature set with a bunch of excellent tools that can improve and grow your business.

 POS hardware

POS hardware is as important as POS software – if your hardware can’t stand up to the heavy duty task of serving your restaurant or bar during a busy night, your software won’t count for much!

Impos point of sale terminals are built to last, are perfect for counters and bars, and work well in busy kitchens and service areas. These areas can be wet and messy, but our terminals are resilient, reliable, and come with a three-year warranty.

Tablets and peripherals are also popular choices for hospitality venues, giving your staff greater mobility and enhancing their productivity.

POS support

Never discount the need for technical support for POS systems. It is arguably the most important piece of technology in your hospitality venue. If it goes down for any reason, you will need all the help you can get to get it up and running again.

Impos understands how important the POS system is to your business. That’s why we offer 24/7 technical support every day of the year, including Christmas!

Best ways to buy a POS system

Buying your POS system is important but the cost should be suited to your business. There is no one-size-fits-all option when it comes to a quality point of sale system. Impos offers several ways to pay for our POS system.

Buy outright

If you have the capital, buying a POS system outright might be the best choice for you. Simply buying the hardware and POS software upfront will mean you won’t have to contend with higher costs.

Rent or lease

If you want a POS system without the upfront costs, you may benefit from renting our POS system. The equipment will remain the property of Impos’ financier during the rental period.


Another option to get your hands on a great POS system is through financing. Impos’ finance option allows you to obtain all the POS equipment you need so you can start growing your business. This way you can use the funds you would have spent on an outright purchase on other much-needed expenses.

You can choose a payment term, from 24 months, 36 months or 48 months, and the interest can even be 100% tax deductible.
