Looks like the cash register is dead. Or soon will be. The iPad is already an essential business tool for some small business’ and a new cash register application should make it even easier for small businesses to take payments via their iPad. The application created by shopkeep.com has been put into service in the Joe coffee shop in Grand Central Terminal in New York. The new point-of-sale app will also print receipts and even makes the mandatory ka-ching when sales are rung up.
It will also transmit sales information to its web-based system so that managers using ShopKeep’s BackOffice software can track sales in real time, manage their inventory, run reports and export the data for use in other applications.
