Before the days of cloud computing, businesses had to incur massive costs installing, managing and securing data on in house servers. This came with an inherent risk of losing all data if the servers crashed, was damaged, stolen or went up in flames.

Cloud computing secures data and cuts storage costs drastically. Sensitive data: receipts, customer invoices, daily sales, inventory, customer data, employees’ data etc. can all be managed remotely with a secure cloud-based retail POS software.

Cloud-based POS software is the latest trend in the retail business. Connected to a remote server through wireless connections it can be accessed through any mobile device - a Smartphone, a Tablet,a Laptop or a Desktop.

A cloud-based POS solution has the added advantage of helping retailers manage their business effectively across multiple channels; Brick and mortar, online, e-commerce, and third-party seamless integration. 

It has an even better advantage of being accessible without internet connection on an App.

The greatest advantage to retailers who have installed cloud-based POS is that they do not need to make huge investments to purchase hardware, layout infrastructure, or hire qualified employees. 

Retailers still using manual methods of data management;Excel sheets, Cash books or even old school Journals. do not know the comfort, ease, efficiency, and reliability they are missing without a fully integrated POS software.
