5 Reasons Why You Need an iPad Register at Trade shows

When you’re at trade shows, the goal is to collect as many orders as possible. Having an iPad register can help you make that happen.

Without this method to complete transactions, you’ll be limited on how many sales you can make. Don’t sell yourself short – find out the reasons you need an iPad register at your next trade show now.

1. More Cost Effective

You could get a complete traditional cash register, of course. But that could set you back $20,000 or more.

An iPad system costs a fraction of that price. Even if you get one complete with a cash drawer and receipt printer, you’ll only spend around $1,000.

Depending on what kind of system you get, there is also a monthly fee involved. The starting price of these fees is generally around $70. However, you’ll be able to make many more transactions which will help offset this cost, so this is still the cheaper option.

2. Streamline Customer Experience

This system means the experience of making a purchase is much easier for the customer – and for you.

Since the iPad is portable, unlike a traditional cash register, you can easily bring it to a customer who wants to make a purchase. You can also use an app to keep inventory and other important information at your fingertips.

With an automatic record of every transaction, it’s easy to keep track of how many sales you’ve made. And if customers have any questions, you can easily look up the information you need right there.

3. An iPad Register Save the Environment

With the option of emailing or forgoing receipts, the iPad method is more environmentally friendly than traditional cash registers. This is not just a benefit to the environment, but also to your sales.

Many customers today care about being environmentally friendly, especially younger millennial customers. If you have a paperless sale option, they may be more loyal to your company in the future because of this.

4. Contact Customers Easily

With an iPad in hand, it’s simple to ask for your customers’ email addresses or other contact information.

You can give them the option to sign up for your mailing list, whether or not they make a purchase, increasing the chances that you’ll be able to sell to them later on.

5. Add Custom Options

If you need to have multiple tax options, it’s easy to program those into an iPad.

Or, if you want to add special offers, such as a discount for first-time customers, you can keep track of that on your POS system. Rewards programs are easy to keep track of when you have an electronic system to organize everything for you.

Get Started

It’s easy to get started with a new iPad register today.
