4 Reasons Why A Cloud-based POS System Is Something You Should Consider in 2019
Cash registers are now a thing of the past – big, clunky, and heavy. They’re definitely not the easiest thing to move when your store moves elsewhere, nor are they easy to set up and manage.
The solution – a cloud-based POS system that saves you the time, energy, and space! This system allows you to centralise all your data, and handle your transactions virtually anywhere, at any time – as long as you’re connected to the Internet.
Cloud-based POS systems are flexible and can be customised based on your current needs and budget. They also take away the complexity and effort of setting up and managing a traditional POS system’s cables, servers, and computer network. In addition, all system updates are pushed from the cloud, so you don’t have to do a thing.
How convenient is that?!
Many retailers have now made the jump to a cloud-based POS system – and so should you – for all the following reasons:
1. Your Data Is Safe

Cloud-based basically means that your data is stored online, as opposed to being stored on a hard drive. The risk of losing your data, or your system crashing on you is at a bare minimum, as cloud storage is very secure. With everything stored on the cloud, you’ll be able to access anything you need, at any time, even if you lose all your hardware.
2. Remote Access

If you’re not able to be there at your store physically, then it’s no problem. Just have your mobile on hand and you can check the progress of your business remotely. This means that you no longer have to be on-site to know what’s happening in your store. You can easily check on your staff, sales, and stock with the tap of a finger.
3. Manage Relationships Easily

Keep in touch with your suppliers, your customers, and your employees, with a POS system that stores all the data you need in one place. A cloud-based POS system will allow you to easily fulfill customers’ orders, place orders with your suppliers, and manage your staffs’ working hours.
4. Inventory Is No Longer Mundane

Managing inventory can be hard if you don’t have a proper POS system. Having a cloud-based POS system that automatically notices when you’re low on stock or pinpoints items that are underperforming will give you a sense of ease and control.
With all that being said, using a cloud-based POS system will help your business maximise productivity and sales, improve customer support, and reduce dead stock. One such cloud-based POS system is StoreHub. It provides real-time updates on inventory, sales reports, staff management, and more. It also provides a variety of customisable features such as promotion settings, supplier management, and so on. A new feature that it will soon be launching is its Ecommerce platform, where customers can set up an online store in a matter of minutes. Definitely worth a try!
