Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2013 -- Initially mobile point of sale (MPOS) technology was targeted at small enterprises who could not afford a conventional point of sale (POS) solution, either because of financial restrictions or because of the mobile nature of their business operation. However, developments in the retail and service sectors suggest that the technology is not only making inroads into large stores but areas not previously outlined for its use. Demand is being driven by the number of benefits the technology offers, such as improved levels of customer service. MPOS solutions process card payments at anytime and in any location. During 2011-2012, the global MPOS industry registered significant growth in terms of the volume of terminals in operation, registering an annual growth of 111%. Driven by the high adoption in emerging markets, the industry is further expected to expand at a CAGR of 42.7% over the next four years.
The key factors that are driving MPOS growth are:
- Increases customer convenience.
- Reduction of cost.
- Higher sales.
- Ability to tap seasonal demand.
- Competitive differentiation.
- Affordability by micro and small business operators.
- Flexibility of payment on the go.
