The evolution of the point-of-sale
- Inventor Charles F. Kettering developed the first cash register powered by an electric motor.
- Fast forward to the 1970s, innovation helped IBM evolve cash registers into computerized point of sale systems.
- These were the first point of sales as we know today, and they greatly reduced the time required processing transactions.
1980’s — 2000’s
- The 1980’s brought Legacy POS hardware and touchscreen displays.
- The answer to issues affecting legacy systems came in the form of cloud-based POS solutions, which was introduced in the UK in 2001.
- Cloud-based POS’ enable retailers to better manage their sales, inventory, and customers across several stores and channels.
