Fast and Easy Cloud Based Point of Sale Systems

Published November 6th, 2017 by Servistree

With the benefits of Cloud Based Point of Sale (POS) Systems skyrocketing, more and more merchants are relying on them as a critical component of efficiently running their businesses. One of the main benefits of these POS systems is the substantial reduction in operating costs. A closed legacy system can cost up to $50,000, whereas a cloud-based system can be up and running for $1000 or less.

The advantages of cloud based POS systems include:

  • Real-time alerts and reports
  • Software updates that are seamless in integration

Quick response times from technical support teams are an additional bonus. What’s more, a business can be run from anywhere once the web based configuration is complete.

Cloud Based POS Systems that operate from mobile devices may all seem alike, but in reality, there are major differences. Revel Systems, developed specifically for iPads, is a POS system designed for any sized business. But, if you don’t want to be using an iPad, then this is not the system for you and your business. Vend POS, on the other hand, can be used across the board on desktop PC’s or Macs, Android tablets and many other types of mobile devices.

Choosing the Right Cloud Based Point of Sale System for Your Business

When choosing a cloud based point of sale system for your business, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind:

  • The POS should be easy to set up and simple for you to operate
  • You should be able to reach customer care when you need them – without a long wait time
  • The POS system should update itself automatically or with minimal effort from you or your employees
  • The system should provide detailed reports.
  • The POS system should have excellent security. This cannot be stressed enough

If a cloud based point of sales system does not have the above-mentioned qualities, keep looking. There is nothing worse than having an issue with your system and not be able to get in touch with customer service. Or worse, security being lax and having to explain to your customers that their credit card information may have been compromised.

A POS Cloud-Based System for Retailers

Cloud based point of sales systems can be used in any type of business. One of the most popular POS systems for small businesses is by Revel. When retailers use Revels iPad application, they can quickly process all transactions from anywhere inside the business. Being able to process transactions from anywhere within the business makes it easier than having to stand at a register all day.

Revel has recently partnered with Honeywell. The partnership between Revel and Honeywell now makes it easier for business owners who also use the Honeywell barcode scanners, since they no longer have to switch between devices.

A POS Cloud-Based System for Traveling Businesses

For merchants who travel with the merchandise, a cloud based point of sale system is mandatory. The leading POS system on the market today – with over 2.5 million users – is Square. Merchants using Square are able to process payments and gift cards using iPads, Androids, iPhones and can send digital receipts by way of email or text.

A Point of Sale System for Restaurant Owners

Breadcrumb, acquired by Groupon in the past year, has focuses mainly on restaurants. Merchants are able to manage seating zones, split checks and control the timing of servings of courses. Credit cards and cash are both accepted through the Breadcrumb system. Pricing plans for Breadcrumb range from $100-$400 per month and these prices include complete set-up by the company.
