What are the advantages of a web-based POS system compared with a legacy POS system?
The key advantage is that the application of a web-based system runs on the web server. You can access the web application by using a common browser at each terminal.The web-based system is, therefore, OS free and a user does not need to install the application at each terminal. Additionally, the application update on the web server will affect the application of all client terminals immediately.Hide answer
