With the adoption of Chip and PIN then the whole retail market is relooking at their EPOS hardware and the solutions that are now on offer. Queue busting is now an attractive possibility but the reality is that a mobile unit could now be cheaper to run than a unit tied to a land line. In addition the rise of sophisticated ‘Unattended payment Terminals’ brings the possibility of using credit or debit cards in situations where previously cash was the only alternative. This can drive up the value of the goods on sale in these remote units. It also reduces or eliminates the need for handling cash, cutting risk and cost.
