Because the device is mobile, that means that your sales associates can walk around the store and help customers with any information they need by simply looking it up right on the device and they can even make things simpler for the customers by ringing up the purchases from the mobile device as well. This will not only make the customer’s shopping experience more pleasant, but it will also help cut down on cues in your store which is also great for the people who work there.

Apart from this being something that will save you a great deal of money, it also means that whatever problem you may happen to encounter will be dealt with promptly and without any extra cost.
You can decide on the number of devices you need
Cloud based POS systems are usually based on monthly or yearly subscriptions and you also usually have to pay per device that you want to use. The great thing about this is that you will have complete control of the number of devices you need during a certain time of the year. All you have to do is look at the statistics that the system will provide you with about the peak working periods during the year and you will be able to see when you need to increase or decrease the number of devices used. For example, if you decide that you want to open a pop up shop during the summer period or if you see that there is an overwhelming amount of work during the holiday season, then all you would have to do is add a few extra devices during that time in order to meet the demand of your customers.
