The Titan Retail EPOS System from TecStore is designed for all kinds of retail shops who require a robust, reliable, complete point of sale system at an affordable price. It is our most popular entry-level POS solution suited for convenience stores, newsagents, supermarkets, grocers, fruit & veg shops, butchers, delis and other types of retail shops. It includes a high-quality, modern design Sam4s (formerly Samsung) brand 15" POS Terminal that gives you the confidence of a 3 year warranty.
No Ongoing Fees
A complete till solution at an affordable price. No Monthly or Annual Usage Fees to ever pay for the main POS system. No hidden extras. You simply pay once and buy the system outright.
No Internet Required
The system is very fast and secure as it is not a cloud-based system. The POS software app and your data are all stored locally on the POS hardware. Only if you use Integrated Card Payment Processing, the optional Cloud Back Office app and related modules would you require internet just for those features.
|Benefits of an Installed System over a Cloud System
With an installed POS system the program application and database are all installed locally on your POS terminal(s). This results in much faster processing time, greater staff productivity, allowing you to serve your customers faster and minimise waiting times during busy periods at your store. There is no reliance on outside web servers, no reliance on internet connectivity, no dependence on internet reliability, signal strength or connection speeds. Furthermore, there is no need to keep paying monthly or annual software fees to use the system. The SamTouch POS software has a lifetime permanent license.
With an installed system, there is no unexpected down-time due to server maintenance or cloud app upgrades. Your POS program and business data are all physically stored at your premises, on your POS equipment, available 24/7 365 days a year, 100% under your control at all times.
The SamTouch Windows-based POS software is easy to set up, is easy to use, and has a comprehensive range of POS features for day-to-day sales operations, accounting, sales analysis and stock management.

The installed system gives you speed, reliability and 100% control over your POS system and data, without relying on outside parties and without the need to make ongoing payments to any cloud system provider.
