(Telecom-NewsWire.Net, January 11, 2018 ) A POS terminal refers to an electronic payment system or a combination of systems that transfers funds electronically with the use of payment modes such as credit and debit cards. A POS system facilitates easy and faster check-out for customers at various retail outlets. A standard POS system consists of a computer, monitor, cash drawer, receipt printer, barcode scanner, POS software, weighing scale, and credit and debit card readers. The POS software is a significant part of a POS system. It includes automated applications that perform key activities for an establishment. It is widely used for retail sales management. Apart from enhancing the shopping experience for customers by reducing the processing time for payments, the POS software enables companies to obtain and centralize information pertaining to the sales of their respective products.
POS software is considered to be a replacement for electronic cash registers that are installed at retail stores or hotels. It is the front-end of any transaction carried out at POS terminals and provides a link to back-office processes. POS software feeds information to back-office processes such as inventory management, ordering, loyalty programs, and CRM. It runs on operating systems such as DOS, Linux, UNIX, and Windows. The software can be installed in both fixed line and wireless POS terminals. In both cases, it transfers information to the databases used by merchants.
