Last year, the mobile adoption rate for POS hovered around 50%, and that number is on pace to hold steady or go up before the end of this year.
They say that 2016 is the year that mobile goes mainstream and overtakes traditional point of sale. Part of this has to do with the functionality and selling points of mobile POS: it’s much less costly to implement, usually easier to operate, and because the apps operate in the cloud, owners have a new degree of flexibility in operating their businesses. But don’t take my word for it. Google the benefits of cloud POS and read any of the results.
The arguments in favor of mobile POS are very compelling—low cost, flexible, no IT headaches, always accessible—and you can choose any one of them to justify making the switch in your own business.
