Smaregi is a new POS system that revolutionizes store operations. In addition to basic cash register functions, this system performs real-time sales analysis, highly advanced inventory management, and many other tasks that go far beyond the conventional functions of POS systems. This system is also compatible with many peripherals and services, such as for credit card and e-money payments and using bar code readers, sensors, RFID tags and other methods for inputting merchandise codes.
All transaction data are stored on a Smaregi cloud server. This is possible regardless of the locations of these transactions, the type of industry or the size of a store or other business. Cloud storage eliminates a shortcoming of conventional POS systems. In addition, the centralized retention of Smaregi data makes it possible to use this information for the creation of many types of added value.

History of Smaregi
Smaregi debuted on September 26, 2011 as a POS system for use on an iPhone or iPod. At that time, POS companies concentrated mainly on hardware. But we realized that hardware is not the most critical element of POS units. We made retail payment systems and ways to consolidate payment data the focus of our new product development program. Now, the consolidation and analysis of data is gaining recognition as a key aspect of POS systems due to technological progress. Properly utilizing this information can produce immense industrial value.
Smaregi is smaller and less expensive than conventional POS systems. There is no need for a large check-out unit and store server. Smaregi sales of increased rapidly following its launch, especially to small stores and restaurants. Low cost and ease of installation along with intuitive operation despite its advanced functions earned Smaregi a Good Design Award in 2013.
Smaregi was adopted in advance at the merchandise booth of the KEN HIRAI Live Tour 2011 “JAPANESE SINGER” by the well-known singer Ken Hirai.
