POS is Pointless Without a Tablet POS Enclosure

Point of Sale (POS) solutions have come a long way from being cash register bolt on applications. The tablet is the new cash register, and it is the cornerstone piece of retail technology, which is why it needs the perfect tablet POS enclosure.

Deploying a tablet POS stand can reshape a business in numerous ways. The tablet technology of today brings the point of sale (POS) to the customer which creates convenience and faster service. Tablet POS provides many advantages to businesses in the form of higher potential sales, lower costs, and greater opportunities for customer engagement while also giving them the flexibility and mobility they need in today’s world.

“70% of retailers prefer Tablet POS because of screen size, ease of use, affordability and other factors” according to a survey done by Aberdeen group. It is their ease-of-use and low maintenance that make them a simple solution for any size or type of business to implement, especially retail and restaurants. However, if the POS Tablet is not displayed strategically, it becomes a pointless system.

    I do agree on that. Tablet POS should be enclosed properly and hold to its place. Its also true that using a pos is much more cost effective and less maintenance. That’s why many restaurants are now using ipad POS in their business.
