What is Point of Sale Software?

Definition

Point of sale (POS) software, broadly speaking, is software designed to manage the sale of goods. More specifically, point of sale software can be broken down into two subcategories, retail POS and restaurant POS. Retail POS is typically used for managing inventory, cash registers, gift cards, and other related tasks. Restaurant POS, on the other hand, is used for managing things like inventory, cash registers, gift cards, table service, and reservations.
