iPads are NOT built for the POS (Point-Of-Sale) Environment in Restaurants or Retail

iPad for POS

IPads are in no way ruggedized to handle the stress and strain that occurs from cashiers and servers in a restaurant or retail environment. IPads are best utilized by salespeople showing their presentations on really nice looking displays as this was one of the driving forces for the iPad in the first place. Retail-hardened POS systems have taken many years to get to where they are today for reliability and they work 24/7/365. Microsoft even developed POS-ready software that would work specifically in the POS environment.

Apple has tried to make the case that they have both hardware and software (albeit proprietary) so they should make a great fit for any restaurant or retail setting. The problem with this thinking is that customers looking to protect their investments should never get a system that they will be stuck with if they become dissatisfied within a few years. If you invest in an open-architecture, non-proprietary system and become unhappy with the software, you can always change your software provider.

Those of us that have been in the POS industry for some time have seen many proprietary systems come and go. Retailers and┬árestaurateurs┬áthat don’t want to be stuck in a bad POS marriage should avoid the situation all together by making the smart purchase of a non-proprietary POS system, like LionWise.
