On Site Tablet Use for Your Business

ReadWrite has an interesting article on the potential for tablets (particularly the iPad) to shake up traditional POS systems in small businesses.

Potential applications include table-side order entries at restaurants, roaming sales staff and redemption (think the Apple Store) for retailers, and increased opportunities to engage and gather customer data on site (surveys, Facebook likes, e-newsletter signups).

The 2 keys to making on site POS tablets work, besides the tablets themselves, is the combination of cloud-based storage and data transfer so the terminals can store and transfer data to the appropriate locations wirelessly (orders to the kitchen, sales to fulfillment center, etc.) and the custom software that will make this all work seamlessly.
