Retail - POS Inbound

The POS Inbound Benchmark measures the throughput of the point-of-sale (POS) interface-inbound for aggregated sales data. This is a critical time process in a real business scenario. The data will be ported to materials management, sales and distribution, or financials and is the basis for replenishment.
