    Question Use of the noun Counter...question!

    I am meaning to the counter where the bank cashier works.

    Is it correct to say implemented counter systems where I want to refer to systems used by cashiers when they work at their counters?

    just a student.
    ''counter systems'' firstly sounds to me as systems that are created and developed to block or prevent other systems from functioning.
    just a student.

    Question Re: Use of the noun Counter...question!

    Fortunately I posted the question, it means I have to wait for a prominent answer or suggestion.

    Perhaps have I to say "cashier systems"....?

    'Systems for cashiers' is better.

    While accepting the points made in the previous posts, I would say that context would indicate what is intended, so if your full text is all about systems used at the counter by the cashiers, "implemented counter systems" would make sense.
