The shift to EMV (EuroPay MasterCard and Visa) payment cards became official on Oct. 1, but you could be excused for missing it. Despite all of the discussion over the past few years about this event, some cardholders still don’t have EMV cards and most merchants lack the capability to handle them.
One of the most common questions regarding the use of tablets and smartphones in mobile POS systems is, “How secure are they?” The answer depends on the installation.

RSPA’s annual RetailNOW show is right around the corner! The conference will take place August 2-5, 2015 in Kissimmee, Florida at the Gaylord Event and Convention Center.

Having lots of cash may seem like a good problem to have. For convenience stores or small retail shops that rely on cash for most transactions, it could become a problem the retailer can’t afford to ignore. That’s because an environment with a lot of cash transactions often is subject to mistakes and mischief.
In the highly competitive retail space, businesses must do all they can to improve the shopping experience. Consumers have plenty of choices, and making a purchase can be as easy as a few taps on a smartphone or tablet screen.
The decision between purchasing a POS system and subscribing to an outcome guaranteed by as-a-Service programs is not as cut and dry as you would think. In the SMB landscape, making this decision can be a very daunting ordeal for a business owner who has never felt the pain of owning business hardware technology.
Over the past decade or so, the bulk of Point of Sale solutions have consisted of one of two flavors: PC-Based and embedded (cash registers, vending, kiosks, etc) applications. Not long ago, tablet-based POS providers started to enter the fray with simple, but intuitive applications running on aesthetically-pleasing platforms aimed directly at small merchants.
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.
In his vision for Fortina Italian restaurants, Rob Krauss saw a perfect combination of hospitality with expedience. His hostesses and servers would work in tandem to deliver service with a smile, with tableside orders going directly to the kitchen to accelerate food preparation and minimize waits.

The Juice Bar at LVAC, a health foods eatery in Las Vegas, needed a POS system that refl ected its corporate image — light and modern. But the company was stuck with an expensive legacy system that put too many restrictions on its operations.
The 2014 PGA Memorial Tournament hosted by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus delivered a couple of significant firsts.

Sometimes opportunities pop up in the unlikeliest places. Just ask Chris Pace, who ended up with a new business after doing a friend favor – to replace a legacy POS system in the friend’s coffee shop with an iPad- based solution. After researching available options, Pace assembled a solution consisting of iPads, a ShopKeep POS application, and APG Vasario cash drawers.
A job well done brings many rewards, and if you’re in the business of developing and installing POS software, rewards can come in the form of customer referrals. Such was the case when Revel Systems got an inquiry to replace the cash registers at a San Francisco craft beer store with an iPad-based POS solution and APG cash drawers.

If you think credit and debit cards are about to displace cash for retail transactions, think again. Legal tender remains the most commonly used form of payment, accounting for about 40 percent of U.S. transactions overall, up to two-thirds of purchases under $10, and half of transactions valued at less than $50. “Cash accounts for about 85 percent of global consumer transactions,” according to MasterCard. “In most countries the cashless journey has only just begun.” So while plastic and electronic payments have been hailed as the currency of the future, there is a long way to go.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
