Point of Sale in the Cloud
While SpotSync Checkout will work great for mom and pop shops, the true potential of the software emerges when used in a franchise environment. The entire application is less than 7MB so, by just browsing to the site, you have cached the entire application and can now run it while offline. Even though SpotSync Checkout is a browser-based application, it still communicates with peripherals. But most important is the push technology. While online, any changes that are made are instantly pushed to the server and broadcast to all connected clients (registers) that are a part of the same group. If you are a franchise with 1,000 locations, with three registers at each location, and you need to update the menu with a new product, you can update the menu and add the new product and, within milliseconds, the changes will automatically update across all of your registers throughout all of your locations. Any registers that were offline will automatically be synced when re-connected to the internet.
Never worry about losing your data ever again. All of the data that your locations generate are pushed up to what we refer to as the “cloud”. We call it the cloud because it’s not just a collection of database servers that keep a copy of your data. It’s more like a collection of replicated living databases that are backed up, cleaned, indexed for better performance and then backed up again. And if this isn’t enough, we provide you with an optional small utility app that can be installed which creates a nightly backup of your local database.
Security is critical, especially when sensitive data is added to the equation. That is why we encrypt all of our passwords and all data that is passed to and from the client uses SSL 256-bit encryption. We also have in place numerous other security measures to make sure that your important data is always safe with us.
VISA, MasterCard, American Express (AMEX), Discover, Debit, Gift Cards....
Accepting credit cards, debit cards and gift cards is as easy as swiping a card while in the Tender screen. SpotSync Checkout has partnered with Mercury Payment Systems to provide you with a quick, efficient and reliable service. We support pre authorization, partial authorization, voids, returns and more.
SpotSync Checkout takes advantage of Mercury's E2E™ (end-to-end encryption) so we can eliminate the PCI protection requirements. Some of today’s most malicious software is designed to steal credit card data from peripherals, such as magnetic card readers and keyboards. By instantly encrypting swiped or manually keyed card data, information that is skimmed by malware is rendered useless because it can only be decrypted by Mercury. E2E helps merchants achieve PCI compliance since encrypted data is not considered card data, and SpotSync Checkout never stores, processes or transmits cardholder data. The merchant’s liability to protect transaction data inside their network is thereby reduced.
Works Online & Offline
SpotSync Checkout is a web-based application that continues to work while offline. SpotSync Checkout may seem like your typical web application; however, all of your data is actually being stored locally. Changes that you make inside of the system are being pushed up to the cloud and then sent back down to other registers in real-time. Because each client has their own copy of the database, there is no single point of failure.
