Take POS And Restaurant Management To The Cloud

By Jay McCall

This ISV (independent software vendor) is seeing explosive growth by providing cloud-based point of sale and business management services to small to midsize restaurants.

Although cloud computing and managed services have been mainstream in many industries for nearly a decade, a lot of independent retailers have yet to take the plunge. Oftentimes, the business owner, overwhelmed by all the other responsibilities of running the business – from hiring employees to ordering supplies and advertising – puts technology decisions into the “I’ll get to it someday” category. This decision results in owners buying the most basic cash drawer systems or ECRs (electronic cash registers) along with (nonintegrated) payment processing terminals sold by local ISOs.
