What are required for POS?
Security is always one of major concerns in POS systems. For instance, owners are much interested in:
- If the machine is simple but can do the jobs they require.
- If the machine is high quality, can last for a long time, stable, needs low maintenance, etc.
- If an operator cannot cheat and embezzle money by making the computer out of order with sudden intentional power-off or shut down.
- If an operator cannot do other things than POS operation itself, cannot browse internet, cannot send/receive emails, etc.
- If the machine is free from frequent maintenance, such as HDD defragment or cleanup, Windows updates, anti-virus software updates, etc. Especially the running cost of PC-base PoS is tremedously high comparing with Uniwell Enbedded(almost nothing) because whenever OS is updated the security check and maintenance cost for PC based PoS is huge.
- If the machine is free from any conceivable problem that is often known as conflict or compatibility between Windows and each PC software application, or Windows system file corruption, etc.
- If there’s no threat of virus infection, information leaks, or system file override by malicious mischief via removable storage devices, etc.
