The number of businesses that are using iPads as Point of Sale systems is going up every month. Those who are using this device for this purpose know that a solution like this comes with many benefits – better security, mobility, functionality and more. If you are one of them, you should also know that taking good care of your device is another thing you must take into account. This article will show you how to take good care of an iPad Point of Sale system.
- Choose a “difficult” password
There is no doubt that using your birthday or a string from 1 to 9 is not a very difficult password. So, you must find a more complicated password that no one (even the people who know you) can guess. Don’t forget that the iOS operating system allows the use of alphanumeric passwords that contain more than 4 characters. If you are looking for additional security use the Touch ID option on iPad.
- Don’t let your children use the device
Let’s be clear – kids (just like adults) love iPads. After all, this is the reason why there are so many apps found in the App Store designed for children. But, if you are using your iPad as a Point of Sale solution then you should now let your kids use it. They can corrupt POS data and make other problems. It’s the best idea to buy another tablet or smartphone for your children.
- Check the storage
iPads, just like any other mobile device, has a certain size of data storage. That’s why you should check the available storage space from time to time. There is a Usage tab on your iPad that will show you how much memory you have left. If there is no storage space, you can expect problems with your daily POS activities.
- Use a specially designed stand
The vast majority of Point of Sale system providers provide stands for tablets. Most people use them to connect their mobile POS systems with their receipt printer or cash drawers. However, even if you are not planning on doing this, you should consider using such stand because it would be much more difficult for potential thieves to steal your iPad.
By following these tips, you should be able to maximize the results of your iPad POS system.
