Why is POS important for Retail business?


I’m interested in your thoughts on

Why is POS important for Retail business? I’m looking around on the web and at first glance they all seem quite similar, offering pretty much the same suggestion. I’d love to know what the experts think. I’d love to hear your thoughts too!

Hi Sheetal,

I checked your profile here, and here you write that POS is part of your work, so I would assume that you already know. So why don’t you start by saying why you think it’s important???


I would have to concur with Eric here. If you are in an industry, like retail, POS functionality is somewhat required to deploy Cash Register processing and Store Location Management and Transaction processing. I am not saying POS is 100% required, but in my many years of implementation of retailers, it is mandatory.
