The first thoughts that come to mind when we hear “iPad” may be playing Angry Birds or Plants vs Zombies, reading ebooks and our favourite blogs, listening to music, watching movies, sharing videos, photos and staying in touch with friends via social media networks, but now the iPad can also morph into a cash register. And I’m not talking the toy variety that the kids play with.
The iPad app Shopkeep Register, when paired with the point of sale system from ShopKeep.com gives business owners a fully functional cash register that can not only ring in customer cash and credit card purchases, but also print receipts, open the cash drawer, manage inventory, update pricing, view real time sales figures through the web and most recently, print food orders directly to the kitchen. With the capability of handling 270 items, the system works best for small businesses such as coffee shops, bakeries, cafes, ice cream shops and mall kiosks.
With the recent injection of $2.2 million in financing, ShopKeep is serious about duking it out with the big names that have long dominated the Cash Management and Point of Sale industry.
To see ShopKeep iPad in action, watch the video below. I love how this business owner is integrating this leading edge technology to his home style business.
