In an era where technology is the driving force behind business success, retailers who cling to outdated point-of-sale methods risk falling behind. Imagine being stuck with manual calculations, handwritten receipts, and late-night stock checks. A modern POS system offers a streamlined, user-friendly solution to bring your retail operations into the 21st century. Here’s why upgrading your POS system is essential for the future of your store.

Transform Customer Experience

Enhancing customer experience is paramount in today's competitive retail landscape. A modern POS system can revolutionize how your customers interact with your store. With faster transaction times, customers spend less time waiting in line. The integration of mobile payment options, digital receipts, and loyalty programs adds convenience and value, making each visit to your store more enjoyable and efficient.

Imagine a scenario where a customer quickly scans and pays for their items using their smartphone, receives an instant digital receipt, and automatically earns loyalty points for their purchase. This seamless process not only improves satisfaction but also encourages repeat business.

Real-Time Inventory Control

Keeping track of inventory manually is not only time-consuming but also prone to errors that can cost your business. A modern POS system provides real-time inventory management, giving you an accurate view of your stock at all times. This capability ensures you can manage stock levels more efficiently, avoiding the pitfalls of overstocking or running out of popular items.

Consider the benefits of knowing exactly how much inventory you have at any given moment. With real-time updates, you can quickly reorder stock before it runs out, prevent excess inventory from tying up capital, and always meet customer demand. This level of control optimizes your inventory management and significantly reduces operational costs.

In-Depth Sales Analytics

Understanding your sales trends and customer behavior is crucial for making informed business decisions. Modern POS systems are equipped with powerful analytics tools that provide detailed reports on sales, product performance, and customer preferences. These insights allow you to tailor your marketing strategies, optimize your inventory, and improve overall business performance.

Imagine having access to comprehensive data that reveals which products are your bestsellers, what times of day are the busiest, and which promotions drive the most sales. With this information at your fingertips, you can make strategic decisions that enhance profitability and customer satisfaction.

Streamlined Employee Management

Efficient staff management is essential for maintaining a productive and motivated workforce. A modern POS system simplifies employee management by tracking work hours, monitoring sales performance, and effortlessly managing schedules. This functionality helps you ensure that you have the right staff available during peak hours and that they are working efficiently.

Picture a system where you can easily assign shifts, monitor employee performance, and ensure that payroll is accurate—all from one central dashboard. This not only boosts productivity but also fosters a more organized and motivated team.

Seamless System Integrations

One of the standout features of modern POS systems is their ability to integrate seamlessly with other business systems, such as accounting software, e-commerce platforms, and CRM systems. This integration ensures that all your business processes are synchronized, reducing the need for manual data entry and minimizing errors.

Imagine the convenience of having your sales data automatically synced with your accounting software, updating your online store’s inventory in real-time, and having a unified view of customer interactions across all platforms. This level of integration streamlines operations and enhances overall efficiency.

Enhanced Security Measures

Data security is a critical concern for any business, and modern POS systems come equipped with advanced security features to protect sensitive customer information and reduce the risk of fraud. Encryption of transactions, secure login protocols, and regular software updates ensure that your data remains safe and secure.

Consider the peace of mind that comes with knowing your customers’ payment information is encrypted and protected from unauthorized access. This level of security not only protects your business but also builds trust with your customers.

Flexibility and Scalability

As your business grows, your POS system should be able to grow with it. Modern POS systems offer the flexibility to add new features, integrate with additional hardware, and expand to multiple locations without any hassle. This scalability ensures that your POS system remains effective and adaptable as your business evolves.

Imagine starting with a single store and expanding to multiple locations without the need for a complete overhaul of your POS system. Modern POS systems are designed to scale seamlessly, supporting your business growth every step of the way.

How to Change  App Language in Android Programmatically?

Android 7.0 (API Level 24) provides support for multilingual users, allowing users to select multiple locales in the setting. The locale object budget represents a specific geographic, political, or cultural area.

Operations that require this locale to perform a task are called locale-sensitive and use that locale to generate information for the user.

Step 1: Create A New Project & Create Resource Files

To create a new project in Android Studio.

In this step, we need to create a string resource file for the Gujarati language.Go to app > res > values > right-click > New > Value Resource File and name it as strings.

Now, we have to select the qualifier as a locale from the available list and select the language as Gujarati from the drop-down list. Below is a picture of the steps.

resource

language

Now, in this resource file, strings.xml(gu-rlN) add the code given below.

<resources>
    <string name="app_name">Change App Language</string>
    <string name="selected_language">ગુજરાતી</string>
    <string name="language">કેમ છો</string>
</resources>

And add this line to the string.xml file, which is the default for English.

<resources>
    <string name="app_name">Change App Language</string>
    <string name="selected_language">English</string>
    <string name="language">How are you</string>
</resources>

Step 2: Create The Layout File For The Application

In this step, we will create a layout for our application. Go to applications> res> Layout> activity_main.xml and add two text views, one for the message and one for the selected language, and an image view for the drop_down icon. Below is the code snippet for the activity_main.xml file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout 
    xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:orientation="vertical"
    tools:context=".MainActivity">

    <TextView
        android:id="@+id/textView"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:layout_margin="48dp"
        android:text="Welcome To InfyOm"
        android:textAlignment="center" />

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/btnGujarati"
        android:layout_margin="16dp"
        android:background="@color/colorPrimary"
        android:textColor="#ffffff"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="Gujarati"/>

    <Button
        android:id="@+id/btnEnglish"
        android:layout_margin="16dp"
        android:background="@color/colorPrimary"
        android:textColor="#ffffff"
        android:layout_width="wrap_content"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"
        android:text="English"/>

</LinearLayout>

Step 3: Create LocaleHelper Class

Now, we will create a local helper class. This class has all the functions that will help to change the language at runtime. Go to app > java > package > right-click and create a new Java class and name it LocalHelper. Below is the code for the local helper class.

import android.annotation.TargetApi;
import android.content.Context;
import android.content.SharedPreferences;
import android.content.res.Configuration;
import android.content.res.Resources;
import android.os.Build;
import android.preference.PreferenceManager;

import java.util.Locale;

public class LocaleHelper {
        private static final String SELECTED_LANGUAGE = "Locale.Helper.Selected.Language";

        // the method is used to set the language at runtime
        public static Context setLocale(Context context, String language) {
            persist(context, language);

            // updating the language for devices above android nougat
            if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.N) {
                return updateResources(context, language);
            }
            // for devices having lower version of android os
            return updateResourcesLegacy(context, language);
        }

        private static void persist(Context context, String language) {
            SharedPreferences preferences =                       PreferenceManager.getDefaultSharedPreferences(context);
            SharedPreferences.Editor editor = preferences.edit();
            editor.putString(SELECTED_LANGUAGE, language);
            editor.apply();
        }

        // the method is used update the language of application by creating
        // object of inbuilt Locale class and passing language argument to it
        @TargetApi(Build.VERSION_CODES.N)
        private static Context updateResources(Context context, String language) {
            Locale locale = new Locale(language);
            Locale.setDefault(locale);

            Configuration configuration = context.getResources().getConfiguration();
            configuration.setLocale(locale);
            configuration.setLayoutDirection(locale);

            return context.createConfigurationContext(configuration);
        }

        @SuppressWarnings("deprecation")
        private static Context updateResourcesLegacy(Context context, String language) {
            Locale locale = new Locale(language);
            Locale.setDefault(locale);

            Resources resources = context.getResources();

            Configuration configuration = resources.getConfiguration();
            configuration.locale = locale;
            if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.JELLY_BEAN_MR1) {
                configuration.setLayoutDirection(locale);
            }

            resources.updateConfiguration(configuration, resources.getDisplayMetrics());

            return context;
        }
    }

Step 4: Working With the MainActivity.java File

In this step, we will apply Java code to switch between string.xml files to use different languages. First, we will initialize all the views and set click behavior on an Alert dialog box to choose the desired language with the help of the LocalHelper class. Below is the code is given for the MainActivity.java class.

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.content.Context;
import android.content.res.Resources;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    TextView messageView;
    Button btnGujarati, btnEnglish;
    Context context;
    Resources resources;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        messageView = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.textView);
        btnGujarati = findViewById(R.id.btnGujarati);
        btnEnglish = findViewById(R.id.btnEnglish);

        btnEnglish.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                context = LocaleHelper.setLocale(MainActivity.this, "en");
                resources = context.getResources();
                messageView.setText(resources.getString(R.string.language));
            }
        });

        btnGujarati.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View view) {
                context = LocaleHelper.setLocale(MainActivity.this, "hi");
                resources = context.getResources();
                messageView.setText(resources.getString(R.string.language));
            }
        });

    }
}
