A traditional POS vendor focuses on selling its software and hardware to a potential restaurant. Once the sale is completed, the POS vendor typically sets up the hardware, installs the software, trains the restaurant personnel, and provides on-site support for potentially the first couple of days of usage. Further customer support is either handled through long term commitment contracts or exorbitant hourly rates. After a couple of years, the sales representative POS vendor contacts the restaurant to sell them hardware and software upgrades at cost as high as the initial investment.
In order to understand the full cost of a traditional/onsite POS, you need to consider the installation cost, support costs, and upgrade costs.
