1. Online sales
Via the online sales method everything of the POS sales and installation process is done via internet.
The POS supplier doesn’t need a car, and spend his time totally in the office or at home.
Working 100% online has a number of advantages:
- The total country of the POS supplier is the potential market. There is no limitation on driving distance.
The time spend on an order for a POS system is very limited.
Demonstration, installing + programming and education of the end-user is limited to 1 – 2 hours in total per order. Due to this limited time, the cost price is low and so the POS supplier can be very price competitive.
- Company cost is lower because of limited travelling cost.
- Working 100% online is sustainable, there is hardly no environmental damage.
Disadvantage of working 100% online is that the type of customer is limited to small to middle-sized end users with one POS system per store.
