Cross Platform Compatibility

For addressing the issue of compatibility across various POS platforms, Far Point has developed RADICAL (Rapid Application Development in ‘C’ Advance Libraries). RADICAL is a set of utilities and application program interfaces (API) which encapsulates common POS terminal functions.

The RADICAL library provides two major benefits to Far Point :

  1. Rapid development. The RADICAL libraries are designed to abstract the interfaces from the physical hardware, providing a common API across multiple platforms.
  2. Cross platform compatibility. This architecture of RADICAL provides great flexibility as RADICAL based applications can be migrated to new terminals with reduced cost and effort.
