Mobile is everywhere and customers love it. We have seen many large companies adopt mobile solutions for all of their business needs. Mobile solutions are growing as desktop POS systems are shrinking in number for all the right reasons.
Large Computers, Difficult Upkeep
The cost of maintaining large desktop servers in the back and tabletop POS systems in the front adds up greatly. With traditional systems you are stuck with them for years, maintaining large catalogues and databases stuck in contracts with hard to extend software.
Many business owners are now realising their needs can all be met with cloud based, tablet solutions offered today. With mobile tablet POS solutions it’s easy to stay up to date with the latest software and hardware. With new types of hardware entering the market today extendability is important. Mobile solutions offer great API’s for developers to extend the application to various other services and products.
But What About Standards Like EMV?
With EMV on the rise and slow rollouts throughout the continent, everyone is worried that they will never be able to support it. Customers are all too accustomed to seeing the “no chip” sign stuck to the top of the terminal at many stores. However, tablet POS solutions have begun supporting EMV terminals. Mobile solutions are great since they have dedicated teams working on creating the app daily.
Business owners can all rest assured that mobile solutions will always have the latest updates and support for the newest technology without having to use hacky solutions to accommodate them which introduces security risks.
