Dual Display outputs a SuitePOS shopping cart in real-time to an external monitor or HD TV screen. Each line item, the quantities and running totals (including promotions and discounts) are displayed to the shopping.
Certain retail environments may require a dual display. This is typical where there can be a large number of items in a cart (eg. grocery store) or where local laws mandate it. eg. California. California Legal Statute.
