With POS integration merchants can eliminate manual data entry. Data gets transferred automatically and seamlessly between the online and offline systems. They can now post product details from the POS to the online store and make provisions to automate purchase orders. This will help save money, time, and resources.
3: Have access to inventory details in real-time
When a sale happens, the inventory count gets updated simultaneously at all the shop fronts. Retailers can now easily keep track of stock levels and activate auto-replenishment. There will no longer be instances of stock-outs. You can quickly transfer merchandise from one store to another or the warehouse based on requirements.

Order management gets automated with POS integration. As soon as a customer places an order, it gets automated immediately and sent for shipping. This can enhance the customer’s buying experience.

Today, customers prefer to buy products online and pick them up from a nearby location. It reduces the waiting time and also helps save on shipping costs.
