Dream of running your own shop? Great, but due to the current economic climate, the reality is more of a nightmare for most. In fact, almost 60% of businesses fail in the first twelve months. Hard to believe I know, but fear not. Small, independent businesses are the lifeblood of any community and if you can dream it, you can become it.
With retail in steep decline across many sectors, retailers and technology providers alike have little choice but to innovate their way out of the mire. Now a Belfast-based start up and a Japanese corporation may seem like unlikely bedfellows, but AirPOS and Casio’s joined up approach to intelligent retailing is really helping small businesses fight back.
When starting up your own business, obviously after stock and staff, your next biggest expense will most probably be an ePOS system. Many small businesses think that ePOS systems are an unnecessary expense, whereas in reality, you really can’t afford to be without one. AirPOS and Casio have created a powerful, affordable and easy-to-use business tool that is essential to any modern retail business - The VX-100.
The Casio VX-100 is a smartly engineered, all-in-one hardware platform, designed for a wide selection of retail settings including independent retail stores, restaurants, bars, educational establishments and service centres. When teamed with AirPOS the system works as both a standalone device or as part of a networked system. The ePOS may be a little black box on the outside, but inside lies the awesome power and versatility of cloud computing. This product release is an industry-first, revolutionizing the retailer that you simply unpack, power up and start selling.
To celebrate the launch of AirPOS 3.0 on the VX-100, Casio have supplied us with a brand new VX-100 which we’ll be giving away to one lucky customer!
For your chance to win a VX-100 and gain a bit of extra exposure by featuring on the AirPOS website and newsletter, simply sign up for free in the month of October using the code ‘OCTCOMP’ and one lucky signup will be randomly drawn on Monday 5th November to win this awesome prize.
Good luck folks.
