Why Mom Said to Keep Your Head Out of the Clouds!

What is a cloud-based system?  Cloud-based POS software is one where your POS data is located on a computer that is not at your store.  It is a computer that resides on a remote server that can be in another city, state or even another country.  Your data is viewed through an internet browser. 

Advantage of Cloud-Based POS

1. You can access your data from any web browser from any location.  

2. Someone else is managing and storing your data for you on a remote computer.

 

Disadvantages of Cloud-Based POS:

1. Your data is stored by another company that can be out of state or out of the country. What happens when they go under?

2. How Will you access your store data once you stop paying the monthly fees for a cloud-based solution?  

3.  Even if you obtain your data in various files, what tool will you use to easily generate reports that can be used for your tax and ATF audits? 

3. How do you look at your bound book records or pull up specific electronic 4473's? 

4. Cloud-based data can easily be shared and sold with or without your knowledge. 

 

With Merchant Magic, your data is safely stored on your computer's hard drive and a copy is NOT maintained in the cloud unless you opt to use cloud-based storage for your backups which is an advisable option.  When the POS tool and data are hosted on your computer, you maintain complete control of your business.
