2010/12/20

If you’ve been involved in the retail technology business a while, you’ve been through a few crossroads. Mechanical to electronic, proprietary to open platform, unbundling and bundling were some of the crossroads for our industry and your business. Well, we are once again at another crossroad and a decision point for your business with either the potential for profit or an opportunity for expense.

Whether you call it ‘software as a service’, ‘POS as a service’, ‘hardware as a service’ or even a ‘solution as a service’, it represents a different business model and a decision point. Are you ready? How do you prepare? Where can you get information to help you prepare your business? How do you make the right turn at this crossroad?

We would love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment.
