ABSTRACT
The article reports that supermarket operators are increasingly seeking out new services to include among their offerings, and because of this, they are demanding more functionality and easy-to-use graphical interfaces from their point-of-sale systems. This development has spurred Windows-based POS systems to take the lead in terms of the size of the installed base. Indeed, 42 percent of all supermarkets at present have installed Windows-based POS systems, according to the 2008 North American Retail POS Terminal Study.
