Why integrations are integral to your business

While our AppStore integrations are particularly useful for making tax digital, their benefits extend beyond time management — integrative apps can help both retail and hospitality businesses optimise operations across the board.

Complete accuracy at all times

Xero, Quickbooks and Sage pull data from your point of sale, card machines and business bank account to give you a full financial overview at all times. Since data transfer is automatic, it completely eliminates the risk of mistakes or oversights that can sometimes happen with manual entry. 

Instant access to records

With cloud storage, you can access this information at all times and from any compatible device. For business owners, this means that you have full access to the figures that matter anytime when you need them. 

Clear computerised archives also give greater efficiency in accounting and financial management, making it easier to stay on top of your taxes and keep track of your financial data. They provide greater flexibility for managing your finances on the move too, making it easier to adapt to changing circumstances and manage valuable resources.

Saves time and resources

Bookkeeping is a vital part of any business, therefore, it takes time. As mentioned above, saves business owners an average of 8 hours per month on accounting. This allows you to spend your time on other, equally important duties that require your attention. Or, dare we say it, take some time off. 

Unlock hidden cash flow 

Undoubtedly one of the biggest benefits of integrating with a bookkeeping and accounting system is freeing up cash flow that’s been hiding in your records. As well as Quickbook’s future cash flow planner and historical cash flow view, these tools generate accurate projections - allowing you to plan your business’ growth long term. 

Integrate success into your business with a powerful POS system

Whether you work in hospitality or retail, financial management is a huge part of running a business, but it doesn’t have to be stressful and time-consuming.

Epos Now's Appstore boasts a range of 100+ automating apps, to help boost your business; Integrating effortlessly with these apps, our powerful POS systems can handle processes like bookkeeping, accounting tasks and reviewing sales, so you can spend more time focusing on other key areas of your business.
