Anybody who follows web design trends will know about expanding search fields. These are typically small input boxes or magnifying glass icons which grow in size whenever given focus. As the user de-focuses off the element it’ll usually retract back to the compressed form.

Point of sale (POS) software is making the world of sales significantly easier. With a quality POS system you can significantly increase revenue, reduce overhead, and grow your business by putting funds more toward where they are needed to make your business run more smoothly.
