Definition: Refers to the area of a store where customers can pay for their purchases. The term is normally used to describe systems that record financial transactions. This could be an electric cash register or an integrated computer system which records the data that comprises a business transaction for the sale of goods or services.
Also Known As: Point of Sale, POS System
Recently we replaced our manual cash registers with a computerized POS system to better track our inventory levels.
