What Type of POS System?

There are several POS systems available on the market. Some food truck options require Wi-Fi, while others do not. You can also look into monthly subscription-based options or a fixed price. You also want to consider usability – you want a system that has the functionality you want but that is also relatively easy to learn and navigate.

Therefore, the system functionalities have to be compatible with the size of the food truck’s operation. There are many good POS systems that use a tablet. Tablets are great because they are compact and you can have someone outside taking orders on it and communicating electronically with the people in the food truck.  In this article, five Systems are introduced and compared in terms of functionality and the price.  These are just a few options – there are so many on the market, some of which are geared directly toward food truck owners!
