Spreadsheets are great tools that have been used by companies for years. There is no doubt that they are useful for sorting data and simplistic information. Unfortunately, Excel spreadsheets aren’t always the easiest or most intuitive choices. They are also time-consuming. Lastly, and arguably most notably, user errors are rampant with spreadsheets, which leaves data flawed and unusable. Watch the video below as Tim explains the benefits you can expect when upgrading from Microsoft Excel to Bepoz Point of Sale Solutions.
Do You Need a Spreadsheet for Your POS System?
Many POS systems lack the reporting functions that a company may need. Others have the functions, but they are not user-friendly enough to understand. A company might resort to using an Excel spreadsheet to sort the data that is being compiled by the POS system. This may seem like a good work-around to some, but it is an additional, unnecessary step that costs time and money.
The right POS system does not rely on outside applications to give you easy access to data. Bepoz is functional, customizable and so simple to use that you can learn the system in less time than it takes to train a new employee on Excel. Bepoz can even allow you to add in formulas like you do in Excel. With Bepoz, you aren’t paying to use a system that does half the job.
Use POS Instead of Excel as a Security Best Practice
Using spreadsheets along with a POS system that doesn’t do all it needs is much more than a hassle. It is also a potential safety breach. Important data must be kept in locations that are secure. Unfortunately using a spreadsheet as a tool along with your POS system can leave your company’s most sensitive data vulnerable to hacking.
A POS system is meant to be used on its own. If yours isn’t doing the job it is meant to do, don’t turn to a spreadsheet to solve your problems. You could be creating even more. Instead, turn to Bepoz.
The All-in-One POS Solution
Sorting data and compiling customized reports is just one part of what Bepoz offers your retail or food service establishment. Along with the important reporting tools, Bepoz gives you the tools to create menus, manage customer loyalty programs, offer employee incentives, track inventory, make price changes and, of course, take payments from customers.

Hey, this is Tim with Bepoz Enterprise: Point of Sale Systems. In this video, we’re going to talk about how with Bepoz you can say goodbye to Excel.
Many of our managers don’t need Excel anymore. Oftentimes, the reason that managers in restaurants and retail operations, and all sorts of different operations, end up going out to Excel is because the reporting tools are limited to be able to get the data the way that you want to look at it. Now, I can’t tell you that you can get rid of every possible Excel spreadsheet that you could ever use, but it is quite common that Excel is no longer used because you can build your own formulas into your own reports, build the reports the way you like to see them and have them exported out to an Excel spreadsheet, if you wanted to, at the end of the day. But generally, because I can build those formulas right into the report, Excel is no longer necessary.
