This IDC Perspective discusses the evolution and the benefits of mobile POS solutions in the market today. The document provides a glimpse into the nature of problems that retailers face while they roll out initiatives to cater to today's hyperconnected customers and how mobile POS has been pivotal in providing superior customer experiences, along with streamlining business operations and empowering the staff.
"The advancement in payment technologies today is unprecedented.
