  • Standard industrial grade touch screen enabled hardware. POS is more user-friendly & mistake-proof. Easy to train cashier.

  • Embedded and industrial design concept. Rugged, robust & reliable. Designed for dust protection & harsh retail environments.

  • Minimum space needed due to high integration, it is less that the A4 size. Compact small form factor (SFF)

  • Minimum power consumption due to usage of low power CPUs

  • Integrated ALL-IN-ONE concept and hence minimum cabling. POS has better aesthetics in customer facing check-out counters

  • Very high reliability & uptime, because of FANLESS system design. Retail checkout counters cannot afford high downtime.

  • Comes with technical and software driver support for devices, peripherals. SDK and OPOS/JPOS drivers are available.

  • POS is a long-term supported device directly from the Manufacturer.

  • Longer life cycle. Minimum of 7 years Intel embedded roadmap

  • No frequent change of models in POS. Hence frequent Software re- validation not required.

  • 2 to 4 serial ports are standard in POS Systems

  • POS Systems are GREEN devices with more energy efficiency

  • Ideal for business use, where systems are typically used by many cashiers & where downtime is critical

  • 3 year onsite comprehensive warranty, option available

  • Low maintenance cost as spares are typically supported for minimum 7 years by manufacturer.

  • POS systems are a better investment in the long term owing to low AMC, durability etc.

  • Low total cost of ownership. (eg. TCO for desktop is Y then for POS it will be Y-25%)

  • No touch screen enabled hardware. Desktops are operated using mouse & keyboard, hence prone to mistakes & errors in billing.

  • Commercial and consumer grade design concept. Designed for mainly office & home use. Lesser service life compared to POS

  • Desktop occupy more counter space as it comes with many separate devices.

  • Very high power consumption as it uses high power CPUs

  • Modular with many separate devices like System, Monitor, Keyboard etc and hence more cables and connection. More failures due to rodents and insects.

  • Very poor reliability & uptime because of many moving parts and cooling fans which are subject to normal wear and tear.

  • Do not include technical and software driver support for devices, peripherals

  • Desktop is not a long-term supported device & it does not come directly from the Manufacturer.

  • Lifecycle is short-term. Maximum 1 to 2 years.

  • Frequent change of models in PCs. Hence frequent Software re- validation required.

  • Serial ports not available.

  • PCs are not energy efficient and not considered as GREEN devices.

  • Ideal for private use in Offices, Home etc where the system is typically used by only one user.

  • One-year onsite warranty

  • High maintenance cost. Spares parts are not available beyond a certain period of time due to change of specs, forcing change of entire system

  • Price is lower than that of POS (Eg. Desktop price = x then POS price will be x+25%)

  • High total cost of ownership
