Cash Registers

Help with choosing a Cash Register, Point of Sale or ePos Touch Screen System

A Cash Register is necessary for any business that is product based and that performs numerous transactions on a daily basis.


Cash Registers can range from a basic system with limited features to a comprehensive Point of Sale (POS and ePOS ) system with an extensive range of features. The type of Cash Register or ePOS system that a business chooses can depend on a business’s current needs, planned future needs and budget. A cash register is an essential piece of equipment in any retail business. Besides making payment transactions faster and more accurate, a cash register can also provide extra security while keeping track of cash flow and stock. Many cash registers come with sophisticated features like touch screens and card readers. Additional hardware such as printers and bar code scanners can be added to the cash register system using inbuilt communication ports. When choosing a cash register or point of sale system that is right for you, it is important to evaluate your business needs for now and the foreseeable future.


Standard cash registers have a basic LED display which shows the values that are being keyed in for the item being purchased  as well as the purchase total before it is printed onto the receipt. When the sale has been completed , the cash drawer opens so that cash, checks, or credit card slips can be stored securely in the cash drawer. Notes and coins can be separated by denomination in individual compartments. The printed receipt will show the price of each item and a final total, and this can be used for the customer’s records or for business reports. Mid Range and Touch Screen Cash Register System can be programmed with product codes so that more detail will be printed on the receipt. When department codes are used, the business manager or owner can run a daily report which will show the daily sales totals for each department.


At Astec P.O.S. we have divided our full range of Cash Register and ePos Touch Screen Systems into 2 main catagories.


  • •  Basic Cash Registers and Mid-Range Cash Registers

  • •  ePos Touch Screen Systems


There are a number of  questions to consider before deciding which cash register or epos system is perfect for you and your business.


1. What type of Cash Register do you need and how will it be used in your business.


Consider how large your business currently is and your projected growth for the next few years. You may have a business with thousands of items in stock with several departments or you may be running a smaller business with only a few dozen items in stock with a small number of departments. It’s important to understand what you see for yourself now and in the future so you can decide what your system needs are now and will be in the future.


  • • How many departments will you require for your cash register system  and will that grow as your business expands and grows

  • • How many products will you need for the cash register and will that grow as your business grows

  • • What type of reports will your cash register need to provide for your business

  • • Do you need to link your cash register to a back office computer

ePOS (Point of Sale) Systems

ePOS Systems are PC-based terminals which have integrated components that make order processing and stock / inventory monitoring easier for businesses that have a large product list or who complete many hundreds of transactions per day. Additional features such as barcode readers, touchscreens, integrated card readers, receipt printers and digital handheld ordering devices can all simplify the complete sales process.

A business can customise their business's customer receipt by adding a promotional message at the top and bottom of the receipt which can consist of business information, logo,  business hours and contact details.

Loyalty and Gift Card hardware and software systems can be integrated into the ePOS System which can be used as an incentive for the customer to shop with the business again in the future.

Stock Control Management Software can be used to provide detailed stock reports that will show the quantities of each item purchased, totals for each department nightly or at time intervals that can provide business reports for use in business accounting and management.

Digital Handheld Ordering Devices are the professional paper-free way to take food and drinks orders. ePos software for hand-held devices has been designed and developed specifically for the hospitality and catering industry. Customer's orders are recorded on the handheld device and sent straight to the heart of your kitchen allowing waiting staff to remain in the serving area and providing improved customer care and service. As all orders are noted on the handheld device the possibility for missed orders is avoided and all items are included in the final bill. In conjunction with a wireless credit card terminal, orders can be paid for at the table.

Pocket Touch App software developed by ICR Touch can be downloaded to an Android or IOS Tablet and is fully compatible with Touch Point and Touch Kitchen Software allowing your Digital Handheld Ordering Device to fully integrate with your ePos system software.
