Typical Problem 1 – Non-SAAS

With a non-SAAS setup all local POS machines use a scheduler to send data at a particular time to a Main server.

  • The problem with this setup is that the scheduling software sometimes breaks
  • POS stop sending data or try to send and fail
  • This causes an interruption in data collection and inconsistencies

Typical Problem 2 – SAAS

With a SAAS setup all local POS machines are dependent on the network to drive business.

  • The problem with this setup is that the connection sometimes breaks
    • POS can’t find the wi-fi or network and either stop or fail to send (static)
    • Network inconsistencies due to old infrastructure or spikes in demand

PRISM Provides the Most Stable Solution

Write Local with a dynamic connection to a Network.

  • The solution, whether you are using a Local or Cloud server is Retail Pro PRISM.
  • Every POS transaction is written Locally in real-time. If there is no connection, PRISM dynamically continues to connect until it succeeds.
  • No lost data, multiple redundancies
  • Speed + stability
