“Point of sale (POS) or checkout is the location where a transaction occurs. A "checkout" refers to a POS terminal or more generally to the hardware and software used for checkouts, the equivalent of an electronic cash register”
That’s part of the explanation provided by Wikipedia. At Scansource we rather see POS as a community of professionals looking for solutions to present to their customers. This is also why, next to the products and solutions information available in other sections of this website, we want to share much more content with our customers and that’s exactly the aim of this section : news, events, usefull links, collaterals, video’s and so much more … all conveniently available in this part of our website !
