Your iPad Point of Sale data stored in the Cloud

When using either the FreePOS or the posIPOS cloud-based point of sale for iPad, there are no local servers to setup and maintain, no time-consuming hardware or software upgrades, and no worries about customer data backups and security breaches. FreePOS stores all your sales data in iCloud for free, while posIPOS stores your data on our dedicated Cloud servers for a monthly fee.

No constant internet connection required

All your data, including sales receipts, sold items, customer contacts, and received payments, is stored securely either for free in Apple iCloud, or on our dedicated cloud servers, depending on the iPad POS system that you choose. If the iPad running the point of sale app breaks, is stolen, or if you simply want to replace it, you just need to install the posIPOS or FreePOS point of sale app again for free from the Apple App Store on a new iPad, and you can continue using the POS system and ring new sales in minutes!
The posIPOS and FreePOS point of sale apps for iPad do not require a constant internet connection to our secure servers (*). They can work for days, or even weeks, without any internet connection, and they will automatically synchronize with any inventory change and save all your sales data in the Cloud when an internet connection becomes available.
You can easily configure each iPad point of sale app to automatically save each sale in the Cloud as soon as a transaction is completed, or, if you work offline for a lnger period of time, manually backup all the new sales when an internet connection is available and you press the "Save Sales to Cloud" button.
More, if your restaurant, fast food, coffee shop, food truck, retail store or expo stand is using multiple iPad tablets for running the posIPOS or FreePOS free iPad point of sale app, you can choose to automatically share all open orders across all the iPads via the Apple iCloud. This way, different cashiers or waiters can access any open order; for instance, one waiter can create the original order, a bartender can add additional drinks from it's own iPad, another waiter can add some additional food items, and a manager can apply discounts.
Plus, both the FreePOS and posIPOS iPad point of sale apps can also take advantage of the iPad's available cellular connectivity option, for both inventory synchronization and sales data backup in the Cloud, and also for credit card processing. The entire internet communication protocol is optimized for low-bandwidth, and the regular 3G iPad cellular connectivity is more than enough to run any typical POS application.
(*) - posIPOS is capable of processing unlimited offline sales, while FreePOS has a limit. An internet connection is required if you want to accept and process credit card payments via the available credit card reader.
