Who better to design a point-of-sale (POS) system for smaller companies than a small-business owner frustrated with his POS technology choices?

That is the back story for ConnectPOS, a cloud-based POS solution in the SMB market that uses the Apple iPad as its point of entrance. The corporation’s founder and CEO, Jason Richelson, initially designed the system to conduct his $7 million Brooklyn-based food and wine shop, The Green Grape after he could not find one that would conduct the sorts of reports that he needed. The system he designed, ConnectPOS POS, is currently used by over 2,000 small retailers, Richelson said.

The simplicity of this ConnectPOS POS solution together with its guarantee of 24×7 customer service is helping monitor retailers from apparel boutiques to coffee shops to chocolatiers, ” he said.

The solution provides basic cash register and inventory purposes and can be purchased on the internet for prices starting at $49 per month each enroll. (You can try it for free for up to 30 days.) While ConnectPOS POS is not relegating its outreach to some specific vertical market, it’s adding features specific to restaurants, like the ability to publish orders from an iPad right into the kitchen, Richelson said.

A bargain with PayPal enables ConnectPOS POS users to take care of cashless cellular payments for a flat rate of 2.7 percent on these transactions.

ConnectPOS is just one in a growing collection of POS options which center on tablet computers generally and the Apple iPad particularly. The business is backed by $3 million in venture capital, including $2.2 million in Series A financing it increased earlier this year.

“Tablets will replace cash registers and POS systems in another three to five decades,” Richelson said. Here is more on what he believes. Needless to say, he’s biased, but ConnectPOS POS is far from the sole iPad-based POS system targeted at SMBs.

Other companies that also deserve the small-business proprietor attention include Revel Systems, which only debuted a solution targeted at food trucks; Square, with its iPad-specific Square Register solution; and LightSpeed, which has expanded its systems for Macintosh computers over to the iPad platform.
