How about Cloud 5? Here are 5 main reasons to move to a cloud based POS Inventory Management System
By: Ed Mullen
It seems like wherever you turn today especially in the technology sector, people are talking about the cloud. So why is it that more and more companies are turning toward this method of processing data, and doing business when it comes to Point of Sale and inventory computing?
Gartner research shows that cloud based systems have grown to $34 billion dollars in sales and is expected to more than double to over $73 billion in 2020.
Top five reasons to float up to a cloud based system
The Cost – It is far less expensive to keep data and programs in a cloud based environment architecture rather than a server sitting onsite in your stadium, arena or event venue.
Plus the fact ownership can lower their infrastructure cost for maintenance for onsite servers, and eliminate the hassle of always having to keep up with cyber security and computer lock downs. Implementing Stadium 1 has saved our clients millions of dollars in ongoing fees from other legacy and non-legacy systems.
Back Up Data – In my career, I have seen many companies lose their data to poor backup procedures and out dated hardware.
In the cloud, the backup is done automatically and with Stadium 1 it is included in our service. In effect we have designed smart terminals that operate throughout the stadium on our platform.
Updating the Software – Software updates with extremely fast deployment can be pushed through the cloud based programming architecture within Stadium 1. The update of the entire system platform can be done all at once. Stadium 1 regularly schedules software updates on a yearly on-going basis.
Real Time Data Reporting – Legacy systems have a difficult time updating and reporting data even on a daily or weekly basis. Stadium 1 gives you real time dashboard reporting every 30 seconds on every mobile device so ownership knows exactly the status of every transaction in every store.
Choosing the Right Hardware Platform – The POS device which actually operates the cloud based software will determine if your installation will be successful. Don’t take this decision lightly, as it all hinges on the right technology partner. Stadium 1 has the most ruggedized, commercial grade, water resistant unit on the market. It has a less that 1% failure rate after 5 years of service.
This platform designed specifically for stadiums and arena, completely integrates with our point to point, end to end software system to give our customers the fastest most cost effective cloud based solution in the market today.
This revolutionary technology is something you have to see to believe.
