POS Solutions As A Service: A Viable Model?
How would you like to pay for that cash drawer? Increasingly, consumers prefer to pay for technology purchases through leasing or financing to avoid large up-front cash outlays. At APG Cash Drawer, we recognize the POS market is heading in that direction, and we need to find ways to accommodate the shift.
mPOS-ible To Define? What Mobile Means In Retail
The term mPOS is bandied about our marketplace constantly these days, but ask what it means, and you’ll get some creative answers. As often happens with technology trends, new terms emerge to define the trend, but few people can agree on its definition.
Get Ready For EMV
Time is running out for merchants to adopt EMV (EuroPay MasterCard and Visa) standards. Starting Oct. 1, merchant liability for payment card fraud will increase, unless they can process payments with microchip-based cards. It they don’t have the capability to process payment through the chip, they become responsible for fraudulent transactions involving those cards.
Thin-bility Solutions Draw Attention At EuroCIS
This year’s attendance at EuroCIS broke previous records by attracting nearly 9,000 visitors from more than 60 countries. APG Cash Drawer was among the 318 exhibitors at the show, where we had the opportunity to demo products designed specifically for the European market and promote the Thin-bility concept.
Cash Is Still King
Anyone can pay for anything with plastic, but pulling out a wad of cash from your pocket still delivers a sense of gratification no other form or payment can match. Cash is still king, and if you think plastic and mobile payments are about to displace legal tender, consider this: Cash circulation in the United States has increased since 2000, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
Selecting The Right Cash Drawer
When starting up a new business or updating an existing one, usually the cash drawer is the last on your mind when it comes to the POS system. However, if you want a successful business, and you plan to accept payments, your cash drawer and POS system are absolutely necessary.
Defining The Future Of The Customer Experience
In the past few months, I’ve attended sessions where industry experts shared key insights on the future of customer experience. Consumers’ expectations are changing, and how brands choose to interact with them in the future is imperative to success. Retailers stand to differentiate themselves by adopting service models and technologies that help define a memorable experience with a brand. Vars who sell solutions that help retailers solve problems vs. pushing hardware/software will set themselves apart from the completion.
Ways Mobile Cash Drawer Solutions — And The VARs Who Sell Them — Can Enhance Security
Mobility and thin client applications are finding their way into the retail environment. APG’s Ethernet and Bluetooth interfaces promote these environments by allowing the drawer to be located in any convenient location with easy access from the mobile devices. These solutions present new opportunities to improve the purchasing experience by discretely relocating the cash drawer from the check-out line to the actual point of purchase.

Don't Forget The Cash: Cash Drawers Essential To POS Solutions Development And Configuration
As a new, lighter POS approach emerges, Point of sale (POS) solutions no longer have to depend on PCs to operate. Depending on a system’s configuration, the new POS model can leverage thin clients such as tablets and handhelds, giving the cashier the freedom to transact business at the point of decision.
Cash Management Solutions: The Emerging Opportunity For POS Dealers
If you think credit and debit cards are about to displace cash for retail transactions, think again. Legal tender accounts for as much as 40 percent of transactions overall and up to two-thirds of purchases under $10. So while plastic and electronic payments often have been pegged as the currency of the future, the oft-predicted cashless society is nowhere in sight.
Addressing Security And Connectivity With Cash Drawer Configuration Options
As a new, lighter point of sale (POS) approach emerges, POS solutions no longer require PCs to operate. Depending on a system’s configuration, the new POS model can leverage thin clients such as tablets, handhelds, and IP-enabled cash drawers to bring flexibility and convenience to in-store transactions.
How To Link Cash Drawer And Connectivity Options To Business Goals
Now that point of sale (POS) solutions no longer have to depend on PCs to operate, businesses have a wide range of options to set up their systems. Retailers, restaurateurs and hospitality operators can take advantage of standalone IP- enabled components to choose whatever configuration best suits their business objectives and customer needs.
Turning IP-Based POS Systems Into Recurring Revenue
The need for PC-centric POS solutions is waning as a more flexible model emerges. Leveraging cloud and mobile technologies, this model supports thin client and IP-enabled components such as cash drawers and printers.
Cash Transactions In A Mobile World
For two decades, the PC has reigned supreme over POS solutions, operating as point of sale terminals that sit on counters and control various peripherals. However, the need for PC-centric solutions is waning as a more flexible POS model emerges.
