Are merchants ready for the year of mobile POS systems?

Mobile POS systems could be front and center in 2014.

There is no question that mobile devices are playing a major role in several different aspects of the business landscape. From the ability of employees to work remotely to using applications as a way to improve and streamline information gathering, there are countless ways that organizations can use these gadgets to take their company to the next level.

A recent article from QSR Magazine asked the question "is 2014 the year of the mobile point of sale system?" The piece features an interview with Jared Isaacman, the CEO of Harbortouch, a cloud and tablet POS provider, and his answer is "yes." He mentioned that the technology has evolved rapidly and will continue to do so as the mobile technology sector continues to integrate with the rest of the business world.

When it comes to the POS landscape, the mobile devices have integrated credit card readers and have interfaces that can handle all traditional cash registers functions. On top of that, it can be integrated with other systems like inventory control and sale reporting.

"You think back to eight years or 10 years ago, you might have a cell phone, a separate camera, maybe an iPod for MP3s. Nowadays, everything is integrated and super simple to use," Isaacman said. "The same thing applies to POS systems."

The impact of mobile commerce is going to play a major role in the future of POS solutions. With the help of a payment solution provider, any company can deploy a tablet POS system.
