Many people dream of starting their own business, and some begin by opening a sole proprietorship where they sell some homemade goods. This might be a cupcake business, a food cart, or something craft-related, but whatever it happens to be, the owner needs a point-of-sale (POS) system. For many, that POS system comes in the form of a tablet with a card reader, which makes it easy to keep track of your sales and receipts over the course of a day, a month, or even a year.
However, the one problem that the owner can run into is that their tablet runs out of power, and therefore, they’re unable to process any more sales. With a portable powerbank, they won’t have to worry about running out of juice and missing out on sales. At CMI Promotions, we have a fantastic selection of powerbanks that can make your life much easier.
Out and About
Your small business or sole proprietorship may take you out and about every day. You might sell food on a street corner to hungry business people, and it’s important to have a reliable POS system that can get you through the lunch rush. A small-capacity powerbank can help keep your tablet charged for a few hours, letting you focus on making food and serving your customers, rather than whether or not you can swipe cards and provide receipts. The worse thing that can happen is that you have to shut down early because you can’t process any more orders! You can always accept cash, but having everything stored and deposited electronically can save you from having to carry around large amounts of cash until you can get to the bank (not to mention your tablet and POS system can make invoicing and accounting much easier).
Getting New Customers
You might not be the business owner, but you may be the one who’s going out and meeting people, trying to generate interest in the company. You may be having people sign up for an email or newsletter list on a tablet, and your job requires you to be away from a power source for hours at a time. Sure, you can charge the tablet in the car between stops, but if you’re meeting with potential clients for a few hours, you want your device to have enough power.
You may also be in charge of presenting data to potential investors, and it can be embarrassing to have your tablet shut down in the middle of your presentation. If you don’t have access to a power source in the conference or meeting room, you can keep the tablet running with your powerbank. You might be connecting to a projector, or you may simply be talking one-on-one with a customer while showing them your numbers, but whatever the case may be, you can feel confident your device will make it through the meeting.
Great for Trade Shows
Perhaps you’ve signed up for your first trade show, and while you’re getting your booth ready, you keep thinking about how you’ll have customers place orders or sign up for your email list. While most show venues will have power sources available, you may get stuck in a spot where you can’t reach an outlet or run an extension cord. Having a few powerbanks on hand will let you keep your kiosk running smoothly, especially if you have multiple tablets in use at one time.
