Open Source POS Software Gives You Options
POS systems are point of sale systems. They let all sorts of different businesses do all sorts of different things, depending on what the business is. For example a retail store will use a POS system to ring up purchases. The terminals where people swipe their credit cards are also part of a POS system. When something is rung up, the system can automatically pull it from the inventory system and can even make sure that the item is placed on order too.
But to do all that, the system needs to have software. There are all kinds of software that can be used. One kind is open source POS software. Open source software means that it can be adjusted by people who know how to do software coding. It allows the software to be adjusted to the exact way that the user wants. Closed source software can't be adjusted at all. An example of open source software is the browser Firefox, while Microsoft is closed software.
Another benefit to using open source is that is often freeware. Freeware means that the software is free for anyone to use. They just need to get it or download it. Shareware means that there is some small fee to pay. People might think that they can't use open source freeware for Windows, but there are plenty of choices available to anyone who wants to have this choice available for their business.
A system that runs open source POS software can be adjusted to do almost anything that anyone needs it to do. They can include a touch screen monitor so that it's easy to put the information into the system. They can be set up very easily, especially with help of companies that have done this before. That company can give the owner all the suggestions and recommendations about what to do for their business. There are all sorts of software choices open to business owners, including what kind of software to start with. The only thing that limits what a business can do with open source software for a POS system is the imagination of the people in charge.

Why a Point of Sale Computer System is Better Than a Cash Register For a Retail Business
By Mark T Fletcher
The first cash register in the world was invented by a chap called James Ritty in 1879 to help stop employees from stealing his takings. Called the Ritty Model 1, this cash register was based on technology observed for counting the revolutions of the propeller on a steamship. The device was ultimately patented in 1883.
