Integrated Point of Sale

As its title suggests, an integrated point of sales system is one that combines several different transaction options into one unit or bundle. A small-business owner who is just starting out may only have one POS system, which may prevent customers who prefer paying with credit card or smartphones from using anything besides cash or check. An integrated POS system gives both customers and business owners more options by including the technologies that are required for credit or electronic purchases while at the same time eliminating machinery that only served one function.
