A Point of Sale (POS) system is the software used to make sales and take payments for goods and services within a business.
While a POS system’s role is to facilitate financial transactions, the latest fintech innovations have revolutionised POS systems to manage multiple aspects of business.
Advanced POS systems are an essential component of running a business and can integrate seamlessly with business operations in real time.
While traditional cash registers store money and record sales, integrated POS systems are the ‘brains’ of a business, providing a single source of digital truth across many facets of a company.
POS systems generate transactions and record data, which can then be used for inventory tracking, financial reporting and storing customer information. Business owners can use a POS system to see how many products they sold, how many products are in the warehouse and how much money is coming in.
New generation POS systems provide features tailored to individual business needs, such as automatically sending out overdue invoice reminders and tracking staff rosters.

E-invoicing has transformed how businesses send and receive invoices. It automates the exchange of invoice information directly between a supplier’s and a customer’s accounting software.
For businesses built in the cloud, pivoting, scaling and expanding to new countries can be achieved at a very low cost. These companies also implement some of the latest systems and processes in payments technology — think instant payments, secure payment networks and the ability for customers to choose from a range of options in how and when they pay.
Late payments aren’t new to Australian businesses. For many businesses, having almost $40,000 in outstanding invoices is the reality of operating, but it doesn’t have to be the case.
