Choosing a new POS system is a significant investment. With countless options on the market today, it’s imperative to determine not only that the hardware, software, and services align with your business goals, but that the associated cost and various payment programs align with your financial situation as well.
With Hardware as a Service (HaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) taking the market by storm and immersing their footprints deeply into a multitude of industries and market verticals, it only makes sense for the evolution to advance one step further: the technology industry proudly introduces: Point of Sale as a Service (POSaaS).
What exactly is POSaaS you ask? Like HaaS, and SaasS, POSaaS is procurement model similar to leasing or renting. In this type of business model, the hardware belongs to the POS vendor, and is installed in the customer’s site. The software is included in the subscription cost as well, in addition to the services needed. The POS vendor is responsible for all maintenance when issues arise.
Yes, you heard that correctly: One solution. One vendor. One easy payment.
