Sales apps, also known as Point of Sale (POS) systems, are used by retail and F & B businesses to complete direct transactions between buyers and sellers. Ten years ago, transactions were processed manually, very time-consuming, and prone to errors. But with POS systems, all transactions can be managed instantly and accurately.
Nowadays, POS systems can be easily found in various shops, cafes, restaurants, pharmacies, mini markets, salons, and many more. Business owners in Indonesia have started to realize that they need to speed up processes and improve sales accuracy. If you find yourself overwhelmed when looking for a perfect sales app for your business, this article will be very helpful for you.
We have summarized five best sales apps in Indonesia that you can consider.

Which Sales App is Right for My Business?
Choosing the right sales app for your business can be tricky. This will be a long-term investment for your business. Your business transformation starts when you implement the software.
The first step you must take is analyzing your requirements. Make a list of your needs and then compare them against the features offered by each vendor that you meet.
If your business is big, then you should narrow your choices by choosing a few vendors who have experience in providing services for large-scale companies. Vice versa, you should select vendors who offer solutions that suit your needs and budget.
In addition, you also need to know your software developers very well. We recommend that you choose vendors who develop their own systems in house to facilitate the installation, customization, training, and maintenance processes. Also, make sure that the sales app you choose does not have hidden costs so you will know how much you will have to pay since the very beginning.
