Elevate Your Business with the Perfect Point of Sale: Why Ardiah Managed Services is Your Local Partner of Choice

By Chris Austin, President of Ardiah Managed Services


Hey there, business owners! Today, I want to delve into the process of selecting the ideal point of sale (POS) system for your restaurant, bar, or retail business. This decision can have a profound impact on your operations and overall customer experience.


At Ardiah Managed Services, we understand firsthand the significance of choosing the right technology and having a partner who truly comprehends your unique business requirements. Let me share with you why exploring beyond standard offerings and leveraging local expertise can unlock the full potential of your POS solution.

Why Settle for Clover or Square? Exploring Diverse Options

In midcoast Maine, many businesses default to Clover or Square as their POS solution. While Clover is a solid choice, Square, not so much, our experience at Ardiah Managed Services shows that businesses thrive with a diverse range of tailored options.

Interestingly, less than 2% of our portfolio utilizes Clover. Why? The answer lies in the array of POS systems available. While Clover serves its purpose, we’re committed to showcasing systems with robust capabilities and tailored functionalities that truly meet your needs.

Beyond “Free” POS Systems: Unveiling True Value

Let’s talk about “free” POS systems—yes, they exist, but as we’ve discovered, there’s often a hidden cost. Whether it’s through enhanced security fees or higher software expenses, the true expense can manifest elsewhere in your business operations.

At Ardiah Managed Services, we focus on value-driven solutions rather than short-term savings. We introduce businesses to innovative POS systems that may come with a price tag but are packed with efficiencies and tools to boost profitability. It’s about making a smart investment that pays dividends in operational excellence and customer satisfaction.

The Ardiah Advantage: Your Trusted Local Partner

What sets Ardiah Managed Services apart is our local touch. We’re not here to sell you a product; we’re here to understand your business intimately and provide solutions that align with your goals. Partnering with Ardiah means having access to a curated selection of POS systems and providers, ensuring you get a solution that seamlessly fits your business model.

Moreover, this year, we’re excited to unveil our new POS Lab. This dedicated facility allows our team to deploy, configure, and test all POS systems before training our clients and their staff. This unique experience empowers businesses to make necessary changes anytime during the year, including during their busiest seasons. By conducting testing and configuration ahead of time, we ensure a smooth transition and maximum uptime. Nothing is more frustrating than encountering delays or limitations due to a learning curve with a new system.

In conclusion, selecting the perfect point of sale for your business goes beyond choosing what’s popular or seemingly cost-effective. It’s about partnering with a team that champions your success and offers tailored solutions that evolve with your business. At Ardiah Managed Services, we’re here to guide you through this journey, helping you harness the full potential of your POS system and take your business to new heights.
