NCR Silver Software Review
Customers have gone mobile and so has checkout technology with NCR Silver, an intuitive point of sale software solution for iPads and iPhones that completely replaces cash registers for mobile and point of sale transactions. While there are plenty of strong competitors in the checkout software and technology market, NCR Silver is certainly worth a look and will certainly prove far more effective than a traditional cash register.
How NCR Silver Works
After downloading the NCR Silver App and signing up for an NCR Silver account, youâll need to purchase the card swiper and any other accessories that will be necessary for your business. For example, you may need a cash drawer that can sync up with your system if youâre running a restaurant or food truck.
Like other checkout apps, NCR Silver makes it easy to sell products in a variety of locations or to even check out customers at any location in your physical store. The card swiper that attaches to the iPad or iPhone is sturdy and should prove to be a solid long term investment.
Tracking Your Inventory
While PayPal Here has the advantage of tapping into a familiar online payment service, NCR Silver gets high marks for being intuitive and easy to use. The learning curve is literally a matter of minutes. In addition, once you get set up, it provides a wide variety of useful tools:
- Inventory management.
- Reminder emails for customers.
- Sales reports.
- Traditional register options like printing receipts.
If youâre looking to build your business, NCR Silver does a whole lot more than just manage sales. Youâll also be able to use it to manage your customer profiles and marketing promotions.
Many of the other point of sale services such as Intuit GoPayment and PayPal Here operate on a per-transaction basis that is generally around 2.7%, which can add up depending on the cost of your products and sales volume. That makes NCR Silver a competitive choice with its $79/month fee to run it on an iPad or iPhone in addition to whatever fees your credit card processer may incur.
The Final Verdict on NCR Silver
The greatest barriers for business owners will either be limited funds or lack of familiarity with technology. By integrating a simple check out solution with iPhones and iPads, NCR Silver provides an accessible tool that can be put to use almost immediately. While it may prove to be more expensive than other services in businesses with low sales, NCR Silver provides a lot of value and may even prove more cost effective with the sturdiness of its hardware, ease of use, and flat monthly fee.
