14 Tips For Speeding Up Your POS System
By Mike Monocello & Greg Nelson
In the Feb. 2013 issue of Business Solutions magazine, we worked with Greg Nelson, VP and CTO of GENESIS POS to test all-in-one POS terminals. During his speed tests, Nelson found that some units had performance issues not based on the hardware, but the settings in the operating system and drivers. After spending some time making tweaks to the systems, Nelson found the units performed on par with the speediest in the roundup.
Manufacturers involved in the testing and readers have contacted us to learn exactly what changes Nelson made to improve the performance of the systems. Following are his notes.
If you are an end-user (store or restaurant owner, employee, manager, etc.) or someone not technologically adept, you should consult with your technology provider before making any of these changes. Additionally, you should speak with your software provider to ensure you’re not changing things that will adversely affect their software.
