Point of Sale (POS) systems, this paper shows hard dollar savings that retailers can expect to see by adopting advanced POS systems with Intel® vPro™ technology. The capabilities of POS systems continue to increase as their role in many retailers evolves from simple cash registers to sophisticated customer interaction devices. Advanced Intel processors are widely used in advanced POS systems and benefit from the hardware-assisted security and manageability capabilities of Intel® vPro™ technology, which reduces the total cost of POS ownership by improving the accessibility and serviceability of POS systems.

Executive Summary

Wipro’s Product Strategy and Architecture (PSA) team conducted primary market research with 40 North American retailers in order to understand the costs associated with point-of-sale (POS) system management. Wipro PSA analysts then projected the financial benefit of investing in advanced POS systems with Intel® vPro™ technology on POS management practices and processes. POS systems are becoming more sophisticated, and it is now common to find POS systems running multiple applications including timecards, human resources programs, inventory systems, customer relationship management tools, multimedia displays, and up-sell and cross selling tools, as well as cash register functions. Advanced Intel processors such as the low voltage Intel® Core™2 Duo mobile with Intel® Advanced Management Technology (Intel® AMT) are used in advanced POS systems. These systems benefit from Intel® vPro™ technology which reduces the total cost of POS ownership by improving the accessibility and serviceability of POS systems.
