Powa Technologies has announced the introduction of PowaPOS, the next generation in retail Point of Sale. PowaPOS is the physical retail component of the company’s vision of enabling commerce online, offline, and everywhere.
The PowaPOS platform features an all-in-one tablet-based POS system, along with the world’s smallest EMV-ready card acceptance device, universal tablet OS support, and an advanced Server and POS Software Developer Program.
