At the National Retail Federation Big Show 2014 in New York, Microsoft is demonstrating a food service point of service (POS) solution based on Windows Embedded that lets businesses use affordable off-the-shelf hardware to simplify customer service and business operations. The solution, a collaborative effort with MICROS, Intel and Dell, offers ease of use through an attractive interface, along with quick deployment and the flexibility to scale from small, independent restaurants up to national chains.
The fitting room is the crucial place where a customer decides whether to make a purchase. But most of the time, the customer is alone and behind a curtain or door when that decision is made, without any support or assistance from the retailer. At the National Retail Federation Big Show 2014 in New York, Microsoft and Accenture demonstrated the “Connected Fitting Room,” an experience that brings technology into the last “dark channel” of retail: the brick-and-mortar store.

I’m here in Washington, D.C., at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), spotlighting our Internet of Things (IoT) strategy and associated technologies.
Microsoft’s focus at WPC this year is the “five trends of the modern IT industry” — cloud, data, leadership, mobility and social — and it’s worth noting IoT’s clear relevance. Underscoring IoT’s tremendous opportunity across these trends as a business catalyst for our partners is a significant focus for me during the event, and we’re offering multiple IoT-related sessions — including one on using our new Microsoft Azure Intelligent Systems Service — to help partners capitalize on the opportunity.

Microsoft Point of Service (POS) for .NET is a set of .NET class libraries that allows software developers and OEMs to write .NET applications for retail and hospitality that work across a wide variety of retail peripherals. A user running a .NET application using POS for .NET can choose from among many retail peripherals — from many different peripheral manufacturers — knowing the .NET application will work as expected.
POS for .NET v1.14 is the latest implementation, providing full compatibility with Unified POS 1.14 specification and delivering improved customer experiences.
