Annual Guide To POS & Payment Processing

Welcome to the 2010 Annual Guide to POS & Payment Processing! I don’t need to tell you how crazy the last year has been. Chances are, your business felt the impact of the recession, and now — hopefully — your business is experiencing some lift as we see signs of recovery. However, with that recovery comes change. Indeed, I doubt the channel will ever return to what it was prerecession. The postrecession channel will look different from the channel of two years ago. For that reason, guides like this become all the more important. Sure, you get educated on breaking trends by Business Solutions on a monthly basis, but with this guide, we’ve strived to give you something more.
