Panasonic to exit cash registers in pursuit of higher margins

With new partner Blue Yonder, Japanese company to focus on supply chains

Panasonic is a major provider of cash registers to the fast-food industry, including McDonald's Japan. 

OSAKA -- Panasonic is leaving the cash register business within the fiscal year ending March 2021, Nikkei has learned.

The Japanese company entered the point-of-sale, or POS, field in the 1970s, offering its registers to supermarkets and McDonald's Japan, with which it has had a decadeslong partnership.
