RPE Solutions Announces Upcoming Webinar to Help Retailers Modernize POS Systems


Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2015 -- It is easy for businesses to become accustomed to, and trust, a POS system after years of using the same software. The familiarity of the process and interfaces, combined with quick-fix plugins that seem to update a system sufficiently, can make this software appear to adequately address management and service requirements. However, "legacy" POS systems often constrain businesses' ability to grow and succeed due to their inability to address mobile functions or cross-channel data flow, along with other issues. Oftentimes, companies are unaware of the immense improvements available to them through a new POS system. RPE Solutions, a retail consulting agency that provides retail store systems, announces the availability of a webinar on September 24, 2015 at 2 p.m. EST, to help businesses "Rip Off the POS Band-Aids and Maximize Sales".

The webinar will feature panelists Steven Quon, VP of Sales & Marketing at Jesta I.S., and Rob Henneke, Executive Vice President at RPE. Joe Skorupa, Editorial Director at RIS News, will serve as the moderator. During the discussion, the industry experts will provide a background on the evolution of POS software and explain the ways in which new platforms can open up myriad opportunities for improvement in sales and management. Topics covered will include a discussion on how to determine if a company has outgrown a POS system; why updating with interim fixes aren't true solutions; and what businesses who have decided to make the leap to a new POS system should look for when searching for a solution that will work not just now, but also far into the future.

Some of the bottom-line benefits provided by modernized POS systems include higher security levels, reduced risk, omni-channel functionality, ease of management, reduced costs for licenses and customizations, and quick implementation, amongst others.
