What is POS?

Point-of-sale (POS) systems have evolved from cash registers to modern hubs that manage sales, customer experience, promotional offers, and operational processes.
POS once referred only to the site—typically, a counter with a cash register where customers handed over cash for goods and services. Payment is still at the heart of any POS system, whether it's online, at a self-service kiosk, via an agent's handheld device, or at a traditional register. But since the old-fashioned cash register first paired up with computers in the 1970s, POS has transformed into a powerful hub for financial, sales, promotional, and operational processes.
