A clocer look at SAM4s SPS-340 cash register

The SAM4s SPS-340 a relative newcomer in the mid range cash register line up is a solid register with a lot of upside and little down side.

Designed for food service it will handle quick service, drive through, cafeteria, bar/lounge and smaller table service restaurants.

As far as programming goes this register rank high on the easy scale (remember easy is a subjective term) because of it's 8 line LCD display that walks you through many of the programming steps. In terms of a rating for programming ease I give it a 4 out of 5 stars, only register higher has a much large display. This register also comes with a free utility software if you want to program on a computer, however please remember registers use serial connections NOT USB!

Cashiers and servers really tend to like the cash register as well because of its large keyboard and 8 line display. They like being able to see on the display what was already rang up and a running total. Happy cashiers mean happy customers which means happy owner!

The SAM4s SPS-340 features the traditional two station printer with a receipt and journal. Many registers have only one printer and use an electronic journal in place of the hard copy journal printer. Myself I like two station registers better because you get instant feedback from the journal when you require it! You may not need it often but when you do it is worth it's weight in gold.

With all the features and functions most places need you will find the SPS-340 to be very scalable. I urge every owner I speak to about cash registers to take advantage of the optional Datacap Twin Tran credit card interface. Other features include IRC when 2 plus machines are needed, PC Poll and SAM software are available. PC Poll also has a QB interface if you would like to use that.

Overall in it's price range and for features and functions in a single lane deployment with or without credit card interface I give this register a 5 out of 5 star rating, in multi machine installations without credit card I give it a 5 out of 5 stars, if a multi machine install with credit card it's rating drops to a 3 out of 5.
