The point-of-sale industry is undergoing its next wave of transformation
Like the PC industry, the traditional bricks and mortar – POS sector – is about to see a major change in how businesses are interacting with technology.
The average point-of-sale (POS) system is expensive and costly to maintain, inconvenient to set up and manage, and not connected to the Internet.
Despite the fact that these types of transactions occur million of times every day, the last significant shift occurred in the 1950s when credit cards and terminals entered the scene.
Now, the point-of-sale industry is undergoing its next wave of transformation as higher rates of mobile penetration and the growth of e-commerce and digital payments set the scene for a mobile-centric, cloud-connected overhaul.
