Many small business owners are intimidated by technology. The benefits of POS technology sound attractive. But creating an effective POS system with sophisticated hardware and software requirements is simply beyond the ability of the average small business owner.
Intuit has a reputation for providing turnkey solutions for small business owners. Now they've taken it a step further by offering QuickBooks compatible POS hardware. These products eliminate the frustration of the average POS implementation and create seamless compatibility between your system's hardware and software elements.
