I think that New POS is EONS better than Classic in a lot of ways. Classic did have a lot of nice things about it but it had A TON of bad things about it.Call me nostalgic, but with the exception of not having to void the entire transaction if the Guest added or changed a payment method to the Wallet in the app, Classic POS was supreme to New POS. 😗
New POS is MUCH more stable than classic and it also allowed them to completely rewrite most of the APIs making it more accessible for things like MCO support. This also lets it be used on basically anything.
This and the new UI being much friendlier than the classic. Also, restricting overrides to just TLs was a great thing for target and TMs. Prevents the new people from getting scammed honestly.
With that said New POS still has ALOT to do before they fully have my heart. exchanges are a big need honestly. I PROMISE if they somehow make the card reader changing states faster, New POS will be LIGHTNING fast. I remember back when they were first rolling out the Linux POS's I don't think it was waiting for the card reader to change states, call it a bug but my transactions were SUPER fast. Like, Not even kidding with tap, when you hear that little bloop! The receipt was printing. it was SO fast. Look into the card reader target!
Also, If you ask me. I think that New POS is a bit TOO spread out. The GS app should really just be the inStoreCheckout but reskinned. Also, all the apps should really have banking built into them rather than banking being its own app.
