Vend aims to kill off poor POS

06 Dec 2011

New Zealand-based merchant software start up Vend has concluded the opening campaign in its war on outdated Point Of Sale (POS) technology. As explained in a post on the Vend blog, the campaign introduced audiences to an old cash register named Steve, and invited people to submit ideas for how it should be destroyed.  When ‘throw it off a tall building’,  ‘smash it with hammers’ and ‘shoot it’ all garnered lots of votes, the Vend team decided to do all three, resulting in the hilarious YouTube video posted below (you can also check it out here). With Christmas on its way, retailers will surely be open to the message that they don’t have to put up with poor POS.
