Point of Sale

Varnex network POS specialists can design, install, configure, and service a complete POS solution for anything from a nationwide chain to a local mom-and-pop store.

Today’s POS systems form the hub of associated applications and hardware in retail stores and restaurants, receiving and generating data. They inform and optimize:

  • Workforce scheduling
  • Purchasing Loyalty/marketing programs
  • Loss prevention
  • Restaurant kitchen timing
  • In-store consumer applications

New, mobile, touch-screen POS systems enable sales associates to pivot from customer service to check-out anywhere on the floor. Your local IT provider can dispose of older units -- even use recycling services to help you pay for the new upgrade. They can install new network cables, access points, and wireless failover switches to lower the chance of downtime during peak traffic times.

Managed Printing

Varnex members who offer managed print services help your business keep printing costs in check with an on-site assessment of printing needs and practices, and by right-sizing and metering printers themselves. They can set up permissions, rules, and account codes to discourage ink-wasting practices (like complete PowerPoint presentations with solid backgrounds), and make usage trackable. They can even replace distributed printouts with customized, line-of-business workflows that automatically route digital documents through approval chains or other steps.

Physical Security

Varnex physical security experts can secure gates and doors with video cameras, and card and fingerprint readers, and detect physical intruders with IP-connected door contacts and motion detectors. IP surveillance cameras can pipe live feeds to manned monitoring stations, and be programmed with further intelligence to distinguish normal from abnormal movement or unusual objects in their field of view. Cameras can even be integrated with POS systems to direct their lenses and alert staff during suspicious transactions.
