Since its invention, the cash register (or till) has streamlined customer interaction and improved efficiency for both the business and the customer. When starting out a small business, an electronic cash register is cheaper than starting out with a point of sale system, and you have the option of upgrading to POS as your business grows. Staff can easily use the till with minimal training.
Cash registers have improved efficiency by streamlining the aspects of a sale into one machine. They allow a business to keep track of all transactions and money received, ensuring that customers are charged the correct amount and given the right change, as well as helping to prevent theft by employees. Transactions are quick and easily recorded, both on the till and physically with a receipt. Cash registers are often combined with other devices such as scanners, scales, and debit and credit card terminals, making them an efficient one stop device for all aspects of a transaction.
Efficiency for the business
For the business, cash registers keep records of all transactions and money received, ensure that inventory is correctly controlled, simplifying the ringing up of large transactions for the employee, and provide a safe place for the storage of cash.
Efficiency for the customer
Customers are also at an advantage when using a cash register for their transactions. Their order can be scanned and priced up quickly, with the correct change also calculated for them, and they are provided with a proof of the transaction with a receipt.
