Why to choose Cloud based Point of Sale Software for Retail Business?!


Undoubtedly, all business trends show definitely one: switching from traditional sales management technology to cloud-based commercial software is one of the smartest things a small business can do.

Whether this is an idea you have not thought of up to now, or what you have been thinking for months, choosing a cloud solution will bring you a number of benefits. Here are some of the reasons your competitors have chosen to go “in the cloud” … and why should you follow them … right now.

  • Mobility

Using a cloud based POS system gives you more mobility and flexibility. The whole system can be started in a few minutes by using a mobile device, laptop or desktop computer with no need of any installation. By using a web based system, you have the freedom to create and send documents to customers and suppliers directly on their mobile phone or email. You process orders from your contractors in seconds, which they bring directly into your system through their online account. Comfortable, right?! Mobility allows you to manage your business from anywhere with 24/7 access to all system reports.

  • Easier maintenance

When a traditional POS system is attacked by a virus, or if it collapses and breaks down, you may expect a work-out for some time until the IT Support of the POS system provider manages to fix the problem. Everything will need to be checked, and if the problem is more serious, the entire installation and all settings will have to be set again. This is expensive and time consuming. With a cloud-based retail system, maintenance takes seconds and happens online and periodic care is taken to ensure that all of the processes run remotely.

  • Do not lose internet connection

Being online is a major advantage of the cloud based systems. But with the really good platforms, you can work even while Internet access is limited. The offline mode allows you to continue performing all the operations as usual and synchronize your data when you go online.

  • Profitability

Traditional POS systems are usually offered for purchase of hardware and software licenses, have different maintenance fees, subscriptions, and updates. Also, the training and setup of the software is paid separately. Cloud based solutions typically come as a complex service for which a monthly fee is paid. The system is automatically updated and you can opt out of use at any time.

  • Security

As all of your data is stored in the cloud, you do not have to worry about running out of space for storage, theft, or accidents with hardware. All data is stored on multiple remote servers that have the most up-to-date protection of the information.

  • More benefits

Because the software is cloud based, you can seamlessly integrate accounting software, gift cards, loyalty programs, additional external applications and any peripheral hardware. No other POS system offers so many options. Integration has never been easier.

If you already know that the “cloud” is the right place for your business, you are probably going to ask yourself how to choose the right cloud system?

Our advice is to undertake a careful study, to compare the functionalities and to make an accurate estimate of what price you would pay.

What we are offering is a truly fast-paced platform that combines the features of good warehouse software with all the benefits listed above for cloud solutions.

>> This is the online retail software Micro.bg. You get all the extras of the system for a profitable monthly fee and a 2 month free trial period.

>> Besides the convenience of using Micro.bg from any device with an Internet connection, there is an additional Android application Axis Cloud that is fully optimized for touch screen operation.

This is how you get a front and back office of a complete cloud retail system!

The future the way we imagine it to be – part III

A store without employees. Even without a retail area!

Online shopping is gearing up. Through Internet you can place an order via phone or even via car. However, newer and more vanguard technologies and ideas appear all the time. The types of ideas, that help the ordinary user order products while following his daily routine. Imagine a shop without shelves, everything replaced by pretty pictures. No computers, no support. Pictures with unique QR codes are all that is necessary. Instead of collecting items, the clients scan the code with their mobile phone. This code automatically recognizes the good and adds it to our basket. That way we can shop while we are on the subway, on a bus stop, etc. Afterwards the order is sent via courier to the address of your phone. The idea may sound vanguard, but it has already been realized worldwide. Soon, the newest version of Microinvest  eCommerce will come out and it will have the same purpose – QR code scanning and adding the item to your order.

The technical side of SQL Servers

Newer systems require new knowledge about different aspects of the systems. That is why the question of the technical side of SQL servers is extremely relevant. And while their internal working model is not particularly interesting for the standard technical partner, the SQL Server’s performance is of strategic importance when building the entire system. In order to help all of Microinvest’s partners, our specialists made a detailed research and comparison of several separate servers, using different loads, numbers of goods and operations, different amounts of RAM and other variables. The entire research has been processed and the results – summarized and uploaded to our website. If you are a technical partner of Microinvest, spare 10 minutes of your time and take a look at the created table. That will help you understand the servers performance and make the task of finding the most suitable SQL server easier. The choice will no longer depend on the specialist’s mood, but rather on facts, charts, diagrams and comparisons. The table contains an analysis of MySQL, the full and express versions of MSSQL 2005, MSSQL 2008 and MSSQL 2012. Take a look at the table and you will find detailed information on the performance on each of the above systems.
