It’s not always possible or efficient for retailers to administer a server and database. Whether that’s due to the cost of installation and maintenance, not having the physical space, or simply a lack of resources.

For those retailers lacking the resources to provide their own server, a cloud-based hosted solution is ideal. It provides significant savings, both in terms of the initial expense for a new system, as well as time spent maintaining and administrating a system.

The service can be accessed at any time, from any location, providing real-time data for essential business functions such as merchandising, finance management, retail sales, customer orders, supply chain and logistics. Access to your data is provided via a secure online link, so all you need is an internet connection.
