SAM4s Tablet POS system saves you money vs. other tablet POS systems

Tabby Tablet POS system
Are you looking for a Tablet based POS system? Then you should look at the Tabby POS systems from SAM4s. It is the only Tablet POS system that does not rely on the Internet at all. The Tabby is 100% standalone and another benefit is there is NO MONTHLY fee. You buy the Tabby and you own it, no $79.00 or $99.00 a month forever like so many of the systems out there. Another thing to take into account is you can use any merchant services you want to use, you like your current merchant services? Then you should keep them!

All the other Tablet systems are trying to lock you into an expensive merchant services and monthly service contract. The Tabby also works on all mobile devices like a Galaxy or iPad and you supply whatever you want.

Before you lock yourself into a costly monthly program call us at 800-863-2274 or visit us to look at the tablet POS system from SAM4s

Replacing Cloud Based Tablet systems with SAM4s cash registers

Cloud based Tablet POS systems may have reached their peak. They have been flooding the market for a couple years now. It seems for a smaller mom and pop shop they may work OK, however in a busy place they don't stand a chance.

Lets look at a couple of the horrible facts of using a cloud based POS system that we continue to hear from customers as we replace them.

  • Cloud based POS system could not keep up with customers on peak days
  • Cloud based POS system always locking up and losing Data
  • Cloud based systems can't operate when the internet connection is lost 
  • Customers were locked in to a credit card providor that was ripping them off for merchant services and charging them a monthly fee for the Tablet based system
  • Tablet credit card readers are horribly unreliable.
  • Customers found out that the Cloud Based POS system owned their sales data and often mined that data and sold it to marketing firms who use it against you.
  • Customers found out that when they stopped paying the monthly fee for their cloud based POS system they no longer have access to their sales reports. Makes sense since it is a pay for service model and you are no longer paying! They keep your data for their own purposes.
If you want something reliable check out a cash register system from SAM4s. They are rock solid, you own them so no monthly payments, they don't rely on the internet, you own your own sales data and no one is mining it for another business. Call us at 1-800-863-2274 and we can help you decide

You will be needing to upgrade your Datacap and most merchant services providers have an upgrade path. After upgrading the Datacap you will be able to add an EMV enabled PinPad from VeriFone. It is all in testing right now and should be available for installation soon.
