Frenquently asked questions

Why should I buy an All-in-one system?

The point-of-sale system (or all-in-one system) is an ideal solution for those looking for efficient management of their business. The advantages of this system are many:

  • All equipment is purchased, supported and guaranteed by a single supplier
    • Minimal use of your sales area (compact footprint)
    • Sleek look of your store
    • Easy to install

The point-of-sale system makes it easier to manage your business by making control simpler, faster and more complete.

Why is Point of Sale Equipment more expensive?

Point of Sale equipment is designed for reliability. Made of more durable components than consumer products and put through vigorous testing to withstand the demanding retail & restaurant environments. POS equipment is used all day every day. Equipment failure results in loss of efficiency and business, affecting the bottom line. At HMB Distribution most of our equipment comes with 3 year warranties, protecting your investment and business from downtime.

Can I add more stations later?

Yes. You can add more stations at any time as long as you have network ports.

Do I need to have internet connection when using a POS?

Yes. Internet connection is required for credit card processing and remote support.

Can I transfer my data on a current POS to a new POS software system?

If the current software can export customer and inventory details (.CSV or .TXT), it is possible to transfer the data into your new system, but each case would need to be evaluated individually.

Can I make a call using your tablet?

Some models support a SIM card. A GSM / 4G LTE module is available as an option and allows you to make phone calls, send messages and use the Internet ( depending on your SIM card and your cell phone provider).
