Cloud-based Point-of-Sale (POS)

Cloud-based point-of-sale (POS) is a kind of point-of-sale system wherein information for transaction processing comes from a remote cloud service. A POS can be refered as - a computerized network in which checkout terminals are connected and operated by a main computer. A POS system allows businesses to connect devices at checkout stations such as – bar-code scanners, credit card readers, tills, and receipt printers.

Since the traditional point-of-sale systems are Windows-based, several high-profile cases of malware targeting them and data being compromised, have come to light. As a result, business owners have started mulling over new solutions; as the financial and legal liabilities of breaches of customer data can bring them big troubles. Cloud-based point-of-sale is the solution they’re looking for.

With the emergence of cloud-based POS, business owners in large number moving their point-of-sale system to the cloud. This new technology delivers all the benefits of a traditional point-of-sale system such as payments, sales data, loyalty programs and gift cards etc., while minimizing expenses and risks posed by malwares.

Rather than storing sensitive data on the premises, a cloud-based system stores data in secure servers online. This enables users to get instant access to data and instant implementation of software updates (referred to as SaaS).

    - Uninterrupted service, even if you’ve gone offline - Hardware and Operating System independent - No servers to manage - No downtime for upgrades or software updates
