The choice between a cloud-based (online) and an installed (on a computer) sales system depends on the individual needs and preferences of the company. Here are some key differences between these two types of systems that may help you decide:

Cloud sales systems (online):

  • POS Sales Station: Typically operated on an Android POS terminal running a sales application. Possibility of selling even without the Internet.
  • Access via browser: Cloud sales systems are available via a web browser, which means they can be managed from anywhere with Internet access. The standard is immediate data exchange between the POS station and the cloud part.
  • No installation required: There is no need to install back office software on a specific computer. This means that you do not have to worry about updates or technical support, e.g. data archiving.
  • Remote support: Cloud sales system providers offer remote support and updates, which can make it easier to resolve technical issues.
  • Scalability: You can easily adapt the plan to the growth of your business, adding or removing sales points, users depending on your needs.
  • Advanced reporting functions: Cloud sales systems offer advanced tools for data analysis and reporting.

Installed sales systems (on a computer):

  • Offline access: Systems installed on the computer operate without Internet access, which results in no online access to company data. The software installed on the computer gives full control over the data and software, but usually requires presence in the place where the computer is located.
  • No monthly fees: Some installed sales systems allow you to avoid the monthly fees associated with using cloud-based software, but you always need to make physical updates to the software and keep the hardware up and running.

The final choice between a cloud-based or installed sales system depends on the company’s specific needs, internet access, budget and preferences. It is important to carefully examine available options and compare features and costs to choose the optimal solution that best meets your company’s needs.
