At the 8,000-seat Sioux Falls Arena in South Dakota, food and beverage sales were limited by aging cash registers and menu boards. To boost sales, the arena installed a more advanced point-of-sales (POS) system based on Microsoft* Windows* Embedded POSReady 2009. In just the first two months of operation, sales increased by 12 to 14 percent—enough to pay back of the arena’s investment in less than nine months. The secret to the arena’s success was the advanced connectivity enabled by Intel® architecture. To learn how IA boosted sales and profits, see the Microsoft case study below from the latest Embedded Innovator magazine.
