FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary
PALM BEACH, Florida, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The trend for restaurants and banks alike, is to not only provide better services to clients but also to utilize POS applications to better utilize data about customers to increase their revenues. In fact, those companies that do not utilize POS services/applications, will lose ground on their competitors by not maximizing their revenues. A recent industry article focused on banks, has said: "Every bank who is in the checking account business should partner or own a solution for their merchants or they will lose those merchants very quickly… (and that) there is no one size fits all POS solution…" Another industry source article focusing on restaurants states: "The customer is powering the point of sale as we move into 2019, and tech and trend prognosticators agree that guest preferences are driving what the POS of the future will look like. As restaurants grapple with how to enable more and more ordering channels and fulfillment from in-store, drive-thru, curbside and delivery, they are facing a — perhaps uneasy — reality in which sales are up despite a decline in in-store traffic… The next-generation point of sale is being shaped by the call for the POS to be all things for all people. To achieve this, suppliers and operators must pinpoint customers' biggest pain points and solve for that. Active Companies in the industry include NetCents Technology Inc. (CSE:NC) (OTC:NTTCF), Pivotal Software, Inc. (NYSE: PVTL), Square, Inc. (NYSE: SQ), Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), Pareteum Corporation (NASDAQ: TEUM).
This year's results indicate that restaurants are preparing to take an active role in the evolution of the POS. More than half are testing and researching new POS solutions for 2019 and beyond, and 46% plan to add functionalities to current software in 2019. About two out of five (39%) operators are focusing on putting the POS on mobile in 2019 and more than half (58%) say adding mobile POS is a top business driver influencing next POS upgrades. Of the top three business drivers that will be prompting POS enhancements, two — adding mobile POS and enabling new payment options — speak to a bigger issue: providing customers with frictionless ways to pay, wherever and however they want.
