About PointofSale.com and ThePoint of Sale News(tm)
Pointofsale.com/ the Point of Sale News(tm) is an online magazine for the POS industry. It is our objective to provide an informative and useful website pertaining to the point of sale and retail industry. We seek to provide a variety of news, advice and opinion that will be valuable, educational and occasionally, entertaining. If you need to find a solution for your business, or details on how to implement a type of POS equipment or software, we intend to have it here. In addition to point of sale software, we publish articles about POS peripherals, payment processing, mobile point of sale, digital signage, kiosks, loyalty programs and solid advice for small to medium businesses.
Many of our visitors are new to point of sale. The Learn section provides articles on how to choose a point of sale program, how to implement it and keep making money with it. Additionally we are pleased to provide excellent articles from industry experts in the point of sale business and from the retail industry.
Our Founder's background in business automation and point of sale starts in the early 1980s when he wrote point of sale software to run his own business. He later started MicroBiz ( a point of sale company) in 1985 and sold the point of sale and bar code hardware division to ScanSource, a company specializing in point of sale and bar code equipment, in 1994. The point of sale software division was sold in 2000 to CamCommerce.
We are an independent company. We do not own any other company, and no one in the industry has any ownership in us, although this may change as we intend to seek venture capital in 2012 to facilitate our growth. Venture investments may be obtained from companies in the point of sale or bar code industry in exchange for a minority stake. This will not impact our independence. Like any newspaper or magazine, we earn income by selling advertising space. Advertising revenue is obtained by selling space including banner ads, links, sponsored sections, sponsored pages, affiliate agreements where we earn revenue if users click on and purchase goods or services, newsletter advertising, and more.
We welcome user comments and suggestions for the site as well as opinions and commentary. Anyone is welcome to submit an article to be considered for publication on the site. You can reach us at pr [at] barcode.com. We are particularly interested in "How-to" and Success stories. If you have one, please let us know about it. We also welcome press releases, although, please be aware that we receive a great many and cannot publish all of them.
