At POSLynx, we understand the latest trend toward using point of sale apps on a tablet has gained momentum in recent years, and for some good reasons. However, are you aware of the possible downsides?

Here are 10 potential reasons why Tablet POS might not always be the best solution for your venue:

  1. Hardware robustness
  2. Data security
  3. Potential of theft of generic tablets
  4. Long-term pricing comparison (over 3 – 5 years)
  5. Software reliability (particularly if auto-updated)
  6. Data ownership if the subscription isn’t renewed
  7. Lack of personalised support
  8. Limited advanced functionality
  9. Staff using other apps on the tablet
  10. Stability of the underlying operating system (OS)

Uniwell embedded touchscreen POS terminals are known for their reliability and speed of service.  If you think a Tablet POS is not for you and are looking for a new point of sale system to improve your business, make sure you check out the new HX-5500.
