Retailers experience maximum workload and also make huge profits during peak seasons. They hire temporary staff during this period that needs to undergo training on POS terminals; locking-in valuable POS infrastructure across all stores. Retailers also continually improve their POS systems which in turn need continuous testing of the POS solution and training.
A POS system connects to several peripheral devices. Each of these peripheral devices has significant cost associated with it. In many scenarios, such as testing or training, the peripheral devices can be replaced with simulators. This helps in controlling the costs while still being able to provision large numbers of POS systems without taking a material hit in terms of cost.
Datamatics has developed a suite of UPOS Version 1.14 compliant software simulators. These simulators integrate with any UPOS compliant POS Application there by replacing the physical device. POS simulator can reduce cost of POS training hardware by over 75%.
Datamatics supports the following POS peripherals:
Cash Drawer, Line Display, POS Printer, Scale, Scanner, Lights, Coin Acceptor, Note Acceptor, Coin Dispenser, Note Dispenser
