Retail Applications

Touch-enabled retail systems cover a broad range of applications found in both supervised and public-access environments. Retail applications can include:

  • Point of Sale (POS)
  • Digital Signage
  • Self Service
  • Foodservice
  • Hospitality
  • Point of Information (POI)

POS applications are configured either as an all-in-one display/computer system or a collection of individual components that include touch monitor, cash drawer, CPU, scanners, keyboards, etc.
