Back-office Servers and Your Point of Sale

The cloud is on everyone’s minds these days. As point-of-sale industry trends veer away from hardware and more towards cloud-based systems, what do you need to know about these changes?Please read cloud storage reviews Why is it necessarily better to choose the cloud over hard-wired back-of-office solutions?

Here are four reasons how the cloud can make the most of your POS:

  • Secure: Just because your data is based on the cloud does not mean it is more available to potential criminals. In fact, your data is safer than ever:  through Revel’s encrypted card swipes, data is secure even before it enters the point of sale. PCI Compliance Guide cites this as a crucial requirement of a secure POS system.  Hackers accustomed to traditional, hard-wired systems won’t stand a chance.

  • Accessible: With a cloud-based back-office server, you will be able to access your reports anytime, from anywhere. Imagine how much time you’ll save by not driving into the store and not laboriously assessing inventory. All information is available from your home computer or mobile device at the touch of a finger. Have multiple stores? No problem--with the cloud, you can access data from all your locations with the same ease and convenience.

  • Mobile: Using iPads as POS terminals in conjunction with a cloud-based system means you have an entirely mobile point of sale solution. This frees up counter space and increases efficiency, allowing workers to place orders from the restaurant or retail floor. You’re no longer tied to cables or wires of a traditional system, and have all the benefits of a mobile and efficient point of sale.

  • Speed: What’s more, Revel offers True Offline Mode, meaning that it runs at the speed of a local network, but has the security & convenience of a cloud based model. Unlike other cloud based apps you won’t lose data or functionality if the internet goes down, and you wont have to wait for things to load. WiFi Management ensures your system is always running at its best.
