Today’s informed, connected, and highly mobile consumers have come to expect the same from the companies they choose to do business with. While customers use the Internet to research products and compare prices while standing in the check out line at your store, retailers have to continuously challenge themselves to discover better, more efficient, and more cost-effective ways to meet customer needs and exceed expectations. Achieving a balance between reducing overhead and cutting expenses, while also improving customer service and seeking new ways to differentiate from the competition is critical for successful retailers. Operating a virtual POS by centralizing the POS application at the data center is an interesting opportunity for many retailers, and a natural extension of this technology.
