Today’s point-of-sale systems have come a long way from nickel-plated, bell-ringing cash registers, but their evolution is not yet complete. But the future of POS could arrive much sooner than you might guess, according to this infographic from iQmetrix.
These visions for the future of POS encompass:
- RFID transponders that are literally woven into the fabric of apparel items (and that biodegrade safely after purchase);
- Advanced one-click and contactless payment options operating across channels;
- Biometrics creating a streamlined path to personalization; and
- A running total of store purchases delivered to customers’ mobile devices, eliminating the need to visit a checkout line altogether.
