In the constant quest to find better and easier ways to give customers a better experience, attention is moving to mobile hand-held units.

Using an iPad, iPod, or iPhone or other mobile device as a mobile order-taker is nothing new to Nextco, SwiftPOS Software has been running on these types of devices for years and with the strong and dedicated development team based in Brisbane, it will continue to do so as each new device is introduced to the market.

The issues come back to the same things: battery life, dropping units, staff not wanting to carry the units, the need to have good wireless coverage in areas that are sometimes incompatible and of course the concerns about security of wireless transmissions.  

The best result is to have a trade off, use the mobile units sometimes as situations dictate but as a complement and not as a substitute for a well laid out POS System with Registers and Waiter Terminals.  

Nextco will be happy to evaluate your venue for the suitability of wireless POS Devices or other form of POS System, please contact Nextco staff at the Brisbane office.
