What is an Android POS?

An Android POS (also known as a smart POS), in contrast to a proprietary system-based POS, by definition, is a cloud-based payment system that allows developing and deploying multiple applications on an open platform. Essentially, an Android POS offers the benefits below.

Why do you need an Android POS?


The open Android platform reduces the development and deployment of new payment acceptance and applications, therefore speeding up the time-to-market, the total cost of ownership of new devices and apps, and the switching cost for new upgrades.

A cloud-based POS system is affordable and accessible anytime, anywhere. Remote updates minimize the downtime and synchronization hassle.

The integration of diverse software in one POS system will ensure safe transactions, orders, customer data, vouchers, inventory, and even employee information. This orchestrated information and workflow enhance operation efficiency and personalized consumer purchase experience.
