“POS software is changing with the times. One company leading this POS change is MerchantOS.”Jason Norman, Bicycle Retailer and Industry News
Jason Norman, writing in Bicycle Retailer and Industry News, lists some of the advantages of a Web-based system: real-time access from anywhere, freedom from making your own backups, no worry about viruses or hardware failures, minimal initial investment, and platform independence. He observes that “Point-of-sale (POS) software is changing with the times” and MerchantOS is “one company leading this POS change.”
