iPad cash register spotted at Grand Central Terminal

More and more iOS devices are being used as point-of-sale merchant systems, with the latest sighting coming out of New York's Grand Central Terminal where it's being used as a full-fledged cash register for a quick moving coffee stop.

Small, sleek and fast: this video shows what a great cash register an iPad can make for a high-traffic small business. Here it is getting the java going for the crowds at Joe in Grand Central Terminal in New York.

ShopKeep is the company behind the software that transforms the iPad into a cash register, allowing for things like printing receipts and also offers a full backend system through ShopKeep's BackOffice software. BackOffice lets managers track sales, run data reports and manage inventory.

It's pretty neat to see the iPad used as a cash register and we hope to see more of this in the future. It seems like it makes the transaction process more simple and streamlined.
