This research provides shipments and installed base on a quarterly and annual basis for vendors such as Toshiba Global Commerce (IBM), NCR, HP, Diebold-Nixdorf, Fujitsu, Dell, MICROS, Radiant, Digipos, and many others. It includes data on processors and operating systems historically and provides a forecast going forward. It is the only review of the POS market that includes the PC on Cash Drawer (PCOCD) market.

This is very data-intensive research and can go as deep as shipments by segment by region by the operating system or processor-type. The data can also be purchased simply in aggregate by vendor worldwide or by individual region. Included is historical data back 2 years and projections forward for the next 6 quarters by the vendor.

These data are meant to be used in conjunction with the POS Terminal Studies by region. It is in these studies where the analyst will discuss trends, barriers to entry, and growth assumptions. The data here are purely quantitative in nature.

General 5 step process for all research.

Step 1 – The WorldView IT Sizing Forecast Model is used by the analyst as a leverage as a sizing and forecast tool for over 300 retail Hardware, Software, SaaS and Services categories is leveraged within this research. The analyst has been sizing and forecasting the retail/hospitality market worldwide by solutions for over 10 years. This provides the upper bounds of the market data and total market size.

Step 2 – This is then combined with a Sophia Data Service that tracks over 4,500 enterprise retailers and hospitality providers (with a minimum of 50 locations) in terms of which vendor’s technology a given retailer/hospitality provider has installed, the total lanes/licenses, the timing of those installations and when they are due to be replaced.

Step 3 – If it is part of an end user study, the analysts will do customized web surveys and phone calls with key retail industry leaders several times a year. This data is then leveraged for several different research reports if applicable. When combined with the IT Sizing in step 1, the detailed installs by retailer in step 2, and then the vendor and customer interviews in step 4, the research data comes from several angles to provide the most insight to readers.

Step 4 – The installs and business sizing for each vendor is validated through public records and vendor/channel interviews. Customer service/traction is validated through existing customer interviews and surveys.

Step 5 – All of this is then merged together into a singular view that not only provides total market size, but also market share and scale of difference between vendors.

Where many research companies provide a top level of insight with just the facts, these reports go a bit deeper through the use of cross-tabulation and sources to answer the questions about “So what?”, not just the data, but what it means and how you can react to the market as a result of this data.
