Point of sale or POS software is very handy for one and all. It will allow you to go into the store and you have the freedom to walk around and shop to your heart’s content. When you are done, all you have to do is simply swipe your credit card and you are free to go. POS is a database that already has your personal information stored inside of it including your payment options.
Once you swiped your card, your bank account will automatically debit the amount. So now, you do not need to carry around as much cash with you anymore as you shop. The downside to this technology is that it will cost jobs. No longer will a checkout person be needed and, in some cases, neither is a bag person. So yes, POS is innovative but sadly, it can cost someone’s job as well. Hopefully not permanently. Only time can tell.
