I would go with POS, too. I've seen it often.

Yes, I have frequently seen "POS" used as an adjective when describing software.

...I think that "point of sale" is one of those terms that is in transition between being a word phrase and a compound word. As such, it is separate words in a phrase when it is a noun, and hyphenated when it is an adjective:

Noun example: We need to serve our customers better, both at the point of sale and afterward.

Adjective example: The new store needed more point-of-sale cashiers.
There were long lines at every register.

My company tends to abbreviate it to POS. That's another way of avoiding the consistency problem.
