A thin client, sometimes also called a lean client, is a low-cost, centrally-managed computer without optical drives or expansion slots. As software as a service (SaaS) gains in popularity, it is expected that thin clients and “blade” PCs will replace desktop PCs in many work and education environments.
Point of Sales

From ordinary retail cash drawer and receipt printing to backend financial management, POS systems are widely used in dining, hotel, entertainment and medical applications.
