What does cloud based POS mean?
Cloud is not a thing, but a metaphor for "internet". Cloud-based refers to the process of storing data online as an alternative to your local computer hard drive or on another server. But where does the information go? If you store your information in the cloud, your report can get stored on servers provided by a cloud computing provider. Cloud POS providers handle data hosting for you, and Ka-ching is using Google Cloud, which is the best and most secure provider on the market.
Ka-ching cloud POS is mobile (unless your device is in a stand) and your business managers can check and use your sales data from anywhere. Every single detail is updated in real-time in the cloud, which lowers equipment costs. It's a massive advantage for store associates to use mobile POS as an interface. Ka-ching is the markets best cloud based POS to use as an interface to show customers products, details and give product recommendations.
Since data is stored in Google Cloud's internet servers, Ka-chings cloud based POS system is fully functional with an internet connection. Standard POS providers have a not-so-well-working offline function. Ka-ching POS is still working smoothly offline, and we've done much work to minimise potential disruption to customer service – just in case. In other words, you're able to run your business no matter what happens.
