Considerations for selecting a mobile POS solution
Retailers considering the investment in mobile point of service (POS) solutions should evaluate a number of considerations as part of their up-front planning and assessment process in order to ensure the best fit solution and optimal success of their projects. As with any IT-oriented project, both total cost of ownership and expected return on investment should guide the decision-making process. Beyond these, primary considerations include seamless integration with existing retail
systems, utilization of standard business processes, adherence to payment industry security standards, and implementation and maintenance of the solution inclusive of mobile POS hardware devices. A solution that incorporates each of these items will deliver the best return for retailers’ mobile point of service investments.
