retail-management-android-appsAs local merchants look to cut costs anywhere they can, an increasing number are doing away with traditional retail hardware and software — which typically include point-of-sale systems, barcode scanners, and inventory management platforms — in favor of mobile solutions. Android retail management mobile apps offer many of the features that small business owners need to manage their shops, but without the high startup costs. Although cost is a major factor driving adoption rates of Android retail management mobile apps, ease-of-use and portability are also important to local business owners. Mobile apps are often easier for cashiers and salespeople to use, when compared to hard-wired POS systems, because they rely on smartphone and tablet technology that people are comfortable using in their everyday lives. To help guide merchants through the process of deciding which Android retail management mobile apps are worth checking out, we have come up with a list of the very best. For each mobile app mentioned in our list, we’ve included a brief description, compatibility requirements, and basic pricing information.
