Melbourne – Australia:  POSiPad is a convenient, standalone point-of-sale (POS) system that works on the iPad and it’s easy to use.

POSiPad will be useful for small businesses, galleries, book stores, cafés, Deli’s, milk bars, restaurants, salespeople on the road, or people selling stuff who wish to have an iPad as an adjunct to their accounting system.

POSIPad is also suitable for anyone who doesn’t need a fully-fledged POS system or needs to sell items in an environment where it’s not feasible to have significant POS infrastructure (e.g. Trade Shows, Tupperware, cosmetics, food supplements parties, fashion parties, street stalls, on-the-road travellers etc).

POSiPad exports its sales data, so if you already run an accounting program, POSiPad data can integrate with it.

Here is a summary of how POSiPad works:

POSiPad is software that runs on any iPad.

POSiPad allows the user to take an order, invoice products, email the order or invoice to the client, send it to a 40-column warehouse or kitchen printer wirelessly and issue a receipt for stock items that have been ordered or sold from the POSiPad’s database.

POSiPad will even trigger a cash drawer.

At the end of the day, reports of orders or invoices and stock items sold can be reported on by sending this information to a Dropbox in Excel format.

This becomes accessible to an administrator who has Internet and Dropbox access; they can then tally up sales, see the Gross Profit, the GST collected, all invoice line items and stock items sold in Excel format.

Such data may then be manipulated or imported into an accounting system.

The POSiPad system is sold as a bundle, comprising:

• POSiPad software

• iPad 2 16GB WiFi

• Star 40-column receipt printer & cash drawer

• Airport Express base station (to create the wireless network)

Total inc GST: $1998.

On its own, POSiPad software is $599.

Here are some screen shots from the POSiPad application.
