Intuit's certified hardware kit includes the Honeywell Hyperion 1300g, a terrific barcode scanner that offers the durability and aggressive scanning needed for almost any retail application. An 18" optimal scan range and optional presentation stand make the Hyperion 1300g a great choice.
Other USB barcode scanners work perfectly fine with QuickBooks POS, and so you may want to check if your needs exceed the performance of the Hyperion 1300g. While Intuit may not provide support on these products, POSGuys is more than happy to help you configure your scanner to work with the POS Software.

As such, you can pick virtually any cash drawer on the market, finding the right one that meets your installation and security requirements. Intuit includes the MMF Val-U-Line in their certified kit, giving you a solid and affordable medium duty cash drawer. However, heavier duty drawers, including the MMF Advantage, offer the kind of durability needed in high volume and rough retail environments.

There are a couple different paths to adding mobile inventory management to your QuickBooks POS installation. The more traditional method involves a batch data collector that synchronizes with your store's inventory, allowing you to take inventory counts away from your checkstand. Intuit recommends the Honeywell OptimusS mobile data collector, and we have had success integrating the CipherLab 8001 into installations as well.
For mobile payment, inventory management, and other mobile tools, Intuit's GoPayment platform is an excellent addition. This software runs on iPhones, iPads, or Android devices, and allows you to take your inventory on the go. With the additional encrypted card reader attachment, you now have a mobile POS device fantastic for trade shows as well as line busting.
