Customers in a hurry appreciate the convenience of mobile checkout because it gets them on their way faster. Before going down this road, retailers should carefully select a mobile computing device that won’t ultimately cause a lot of headaches. Learn how to avoid a dozen major issues, like PCI compliance, wireless coverage, and software incompatibility, when implementing mobile point-of-sale (POS).
Rather than modifying and enhancing consumer-grade devices to get them to an acceptable level, and then implementing mobile workflows, it is better to start with mobile devices that are already at the same level as the countertop systems with respect to PCI compliance, connectivity, and manageability. For example, Motion Computing tablets, based on Intel® processors and Windows*, provide compatibility with most POS software and peripherals, world-class remote management, enterprise-grade wireless capabilities, PCI application support, and a computer capable enough to run a full retail suite.
Mobile devices just for retail
Consumer devices require a lot of steps to be ready for use in a retail environment, but Motion Computing offers easy-to-deploy mobile devices made for retail use that assist with mobile point of sale, price and inventory lookup, consultative selling, and more.
