POS Nation understands the appeal of a software that is not restricted to in-store access. However, the risks of a purely cloud-based point of sale solution come when there’s an internet outage or unreliable internet connection. Some businesses who operate in remote locations where the internet is unavailable can’t rely on a purely cloud-based solution.
Similarly, any small business owner will tell you that store hours are solely for customers. Being an owner means your office hours are 24/7 — and sometimes, it’s just not possible to be at your brick-and-mortar location where your local POS solution lives.
Using our hybrid POS solution means the front end of your system, where you process transactions and deal with customers, is available locally in store — so you never have to rely on a secure internet connection to use your point of sale. Your back office, where you manage inventory and other operational functions, can be accessed in-store and via an internet connection.
If you have to access sales reports, inventory levels, or other back-end functionality, you can do so from your store or your living room couch.
Know what's happening at your business even when you're not there for $15 per month.
Access your back office from any computer. Track inventory, email purchase orders, and run payroll from anywhere for $15 per month.
A cloud-based POS system, commonly referred to as a web-based point of sale system or SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), is a point of sale solution that can be accessed anywhere from a WiFi connection. This solution stores your data on a remote server (aka online or in the cloud).
