What is a tablet POS:
Think of it as similar to a computer-operated payment system. But in this case, all the work that was previously handled by a desktop computer is now done by a tablet. Yes you read it right, we are talking about tablets. These days’ tablets have become so advanced that they can handle all the computing needs that previously required a big workstation. If you doubt us then compare the specs of an iPad to that of a desktop computer. You will find that tablets are fast catching up with desktop computers. In fact the truth is that smart phones and tablets have already outsold the desktop and laptop computers.
How does a tablet POS help a seller?
As a seller you can decrease the payment time by increasing the number of computers. But this solution has a drawback. Increasing the number of counters means more computers and that directly increases the associated cost. You can cut down on the cost by attaching the terminals to a central server but even that proves to be quite expensive.
Now you can increase the number of counters with the help of tablets. The cost of a tablet is way less than that of a full-blown desktop computer.
So now in order to increase the number of counters, all you need is some tablets and card readers.
Tablet POS makes you future proof:
Big players in the market such as Apple and Google are trying hard to change the very fundamentals of the payment systems. While Apple has unveiled Apple Pay, Google has come ahead with its own solution known as Google Wallet. Traditional computers might prove to be incomputable with these mobile payment systems when the shift finally happens. But with a tablet POS, you can be sure that when the time comes, you will be ready and well equipped to handle the change.
