Groupon Updates Its Breadcrumb Point-of-Sale So It Can, Well, Redeem Groupons

Groupon is today releasing an updated version of its Breadcrumb point-of-sale app that will, among other things, have a Groupon redemption feature built into it that automatically tallies how many Groupon vouchers have been redeemed. The update also stores transactions for up to an hour, in case a merchant loses its Internet connection, and processes those transactions that happened offline when the connection is back up. Additionally, merchants with large menus are getting a search function to help them save a bit of time.
