Sales Reports:

The POS system provides a good overview of the system. Reports can be generated weekly, monthly, and annually. Most of the POS systems offer the ability to customize reports as per the requirements. These reports can have details like the orders received today, stock management reports, and inventory sold at the end of the day.
