2017 was a tumultuous year for the POS industry. Numerous acquisitions of POS software vendors by payment processing companies left many solution providers wondering how they fit into the future of a consolidating industry. Within the next few years, those who offer only basic hardware and software bundles might find themselves struggling to maintain relevance. Alternatively, those who expand their solution offerings and move toward a problem-solving approach for their customers will be well-positioned to thrive.

If you think EMV is in our rearview mirror, you’re wrong—and missing out on a great revenue generator. Looking back, there was obviously a lot of hype and uncertainty in the U.S. POS and payments industries as we led up to the Oct. 2015 EMV liability shift. Many factors created a “Y2K-like” moment that passed with little fanfare. When the deadline passed, many retailers saw that there wasn’t suddenly more fraud or even enough to compel them to continue to act with urgency concerning EMV upgrades.

Additionally, it doesn’t mean that EMV isn’t still a significant opportunity for you.
