web based pos

Any business selling person will have a ‘point of sale’, commonly abbreviated ‘POS’. POS is not a standalone machine or process. That is, it is constellation of things that together enable you to process customer-facing transactions efficiently. And also to streamline business processes connected with your sales. Earlier POS machine was available as a single desktop unit integrated with software, Barcode Scanner, Cash drawer, Customer Display and a Receipt Printer. A single POS terminal was much costlier for any mid level or low level retailers to afford. Moreover, the POS machine was not easily portable from one location to another. Re-installation of POS machine might requires technical assistance from their IT vendors. But with the emerging of web based POS software's, POS become a common picture not only for retailers but also for service based business people.

Web based POS are ideal for mobile business like food truck and home repair services. All modern POS systems have a front-end interface for the point of sale and also a back-end (sometimes called ‘back-office’ or ‘dashboard’) side for behind-the-scenes analytics and management functions. With an active internet connection the software can easily be installed and it will stay operational even after complete disconnection.
