Hampshire, UK – 21st January 2020: New data from Juniper Research forecasts that the total global annual spend on POS software by retail and restaurant businesses will grow to $1.7 billion in 2024 from $1.1 billion in 2019. This growth will be fuelled by the increasing availability of app integrations, such as Shopify and QuickBooks, as vendors expand and seek to augment their capabilities through partnerships and consolidation.

The new research, POS Software: Key Opportunities, Vendor Analysis & Market Forecasts 2020-2024, identified that forging partnerships will enable connections with third-party platforms; allowing vendors to grow their user base. The research urges vendors to leverage cloud-based systems to integrate with eCommerce platforms; enabling retailers to offer seamless omnichannel experiences. The report forecasts that larger POS software vendors will seek to acquire niche POS software innovators to integrate their disruptive services into their portfolios.
