The Benefits of Cloud-Based EPoS Software

An increasing number of B2C businesses, from small to large organisations, are now making the transition from traditional POS to cloud EPoS software, but why?

In this feature, we take a look at why many businesses are choosing cloud POS.

Lower Costs

Cloud EPoS software is available on a monthly subscription basis, covering the cost of the software, hosting, maintenance, development and upgrades. This means that the software has a lower cost of ownership and ensures that you have a cost-effective system in place.

Monthly subscription fees can be set up for a low cost and ensure you have access to all the latest updates without having to pay for a completely new system every time your business requires it.

Keeping Up-to-Date

With the latest updates available at a touch of a button, organisations are able to stay at the forefront of technology, utilising its benefits for more effective management. New versions allow businesses to stay current and ensure they are not left behind as technology develops.

Real-time Data, Wherever You Are

Cloud EPoS solutions allow managers, regardless of their location, to access sales data, inventory counts and reports in real time for any store; managers simply need to make sure their device has access to the browser. The use of cloud also allows individuals to access such data from their mobiles, particularly useful for business owners or managers who are always on the go and not able to make it to individual stores.

Tracking Performance 

As well as being easily updated and accessed from various locations, cloud EPoS software allows companies to track their growth and business needs – all in one place.

Updated Security

The data from cloud epos solutions ensures the risk of data loss and breaches is significantly reduced because the data is stored in a secure centre that is far superior to any storage environment a business would be able to maintain. The great thing about cloud software is that it also provides advanced security features, such as encryption, which is particularly invaluable in protecting businesses against hackers. 

Regardless of the size of your retail company, a cloud EPoS solution is worth considering because of its wealth of benefits.
