Girl Scouts of the USA has automated store operations with a cloud-based solution.

Cloud-based or hosted software is becoming a more common model for retail operations, particularly for retailers with smaller locations or a widely dispersed network of stores. Implementation costs are lower, and support can be centralized, further lowering the total cost of ownership of these systems.

POSitive Technology, a Germantown, MD-based ISV made the shift to the cloud several years ago when it developed its OpSuite product, a cloudbased retail management solution for multistore operators. That decision has ultimately helped snag several large contracts for the company, including a nationwide deployment for Girl Scouts of the USA stores.
