If you have a restaurant where lunchtime and dinner time are jam-packed, you need to upgrade to touch screen pos terminals which can work as fast as that of Zeus' lighting.

This is why as an upgrading customer; you need to know the compatibility of this and that scanner in order for you to reach a final decision as to whether you would want this or that barcode scanner.
