Super-storm Sandy crashed into the US earlier this week and delivered a reminder of the challenges faced by retailers who rely on cloud based POS systems or retail software solutions with state and national infrastructure underpinning access.
While there are benefits of genuine cloud based POS systems, there are risks too, especially if retailers do not plan and prepare for factors that can affect infrastructure outside their direct control.
Retailers using our Point of Sale software through browsers – without the need to install software at the store level – are fully advised about appropriate preparations for local processing in the event of an internet outage. they are also advised and prepared for power outages.
In this connected world where weather disruptions appear to be on the increase, being able to transact business in the face of environmental challenges is important, mission critical. Here at Tower Systems we can and do help.
