Android POS Systems vs. iPad POS Systems
So, it is time to determine which POS system will bring more flexibility to your restaurant. Is it an Android POS system or is it an iPad POS system? Keep these things in mind:
- An Android POS allows an extremely customizable experience. As a mobile operating system, its flexibility allows developers to have control over both software and app experience. This means that restaurants can offer personalized experience to the restaurant environment. In other words, an Android POS app can adapt to the restaurant’s needs, and not the other way around. In this case, an Android POS system is more suitable for your business due to the durability and flexibility Android software and hardware offer.
- Software updates are faster, and if a restaurant wants a seamless experience, the POS company must get access to the new version, update and test the app, and then publish the update. The main difference between Android and iOS is that these apps need a review and approval process whenever there is an update. As a consequence, it’s very common that iOS updates cause an iPad POS system to break. On the other hand, an Android’s open system updates, cause less disturbance and support a smoother overall operation.
- Android POS is flexible in hardware, which helps restaurants adapt to technology according to the business needs. Plus, Android hardware is durable and affordable. Don´t get me wrong, I love Apple but, regarding business practicality an Android POS system sure does the trick, as these systems are built to handle the extreme daily usage. Not to mention they are much more affordable for both first installation and replacing devices that are dropped and broken. Anyhow, it is still your decision whether to use an Android POS system or an Ipad POS; and Level POS is here to help you make the right one.
