Microsoft Point of Service (POS) for .NET v1.14 has been made generally available.
The new set of .NET class libraries enables software developers and original-equipment manufacturers to write .NET applications for retail and hospitality that work across a wide variety of retail peripherals.
Users can run POS for .NET v1.14 in the knowledge that the application will work as expected across various retail peripherals from many different peripheral manufacturers.
POS for .NET v1.14 provides full compatibility with Unified POS1.14 specifications. The application’s training mode allows sales staff to practice using chip and pin peripherals without impacting on actual transactions. POS for .NET v1.14 extends to support a large set of peripherals by providing more symbols for POS printers and barcode scanners. It also provides fiscal printer data in several different formats, making it easier to review daily transactions. Furthermore, the POS for .NET v1.14 installer is more interoperable with IT tools and supports scripting in deployment scenarios.
“POS for .NET v1.14 adds POS objects for retail peripherals — such as smartcards, motion sensors and fiscal printers — to support for a larger set of peripherals, so developers can spend less time writing code to create POS objects and more time building and delivering differentiated experiences,” said Christine Ahonen, Windows Embedded Program Manager, in a blog post for Windows Embedded. “Furthermore, POS for .NET v1.14 now supports .NET 4.0, building on an updated security model and making it easier for customers to maintain payment card industry compliance.”
