I’m sure you’ve had an incredibly hectic day when you’ve had to be away from your business for longer than just a few hours. Worrying about how many sales you have made or how much stock is left in inventory is not an issue with Habortouch’s Lighthouse feature. This amazing software product works together with your POS system and allows you to perform different actions remotely.
The Harbortouch Lighthouse includes the following functions which will prove invaluable to your business:
1. You do not need a computer for storage
With most POS systems, you will need to have a computer and software in an office to store all the data generated from your sales and purchases. That brings in a whole set of problems on its own. First, you will need to purchase a computer with adequate storage capacity for years to come. If you have a growing business, this may be a real problem. Secondly, you will need to have backups performed daily in case the computer crashes and you lose all the valuable data. This in itself is a headache because computers don’t usually give any warning if they are going to crash. Thirdly, it means investing in secondary storage devices like external hard drives, and also investing in secure storage spaces in case of any theft.
With Harbortouch’s Lighthouse feature, you don’t have to worry about all of this because all the information that is stored in the Interactive Merchant System online is securely transferred to the Harbortouch POS. Again, all your transactions and changes are stored online and there is little need to worry about theft or computers crashing. Your data is protected and there is less likelihood of it being lost or stolen.
2. Access to reports
Because you are accessing your reports online, you can access them from anywhere and at any time. This feature allows you to find out how many sales have been made and what inventory products need to be restocked without physically being at your business premises. As long as you have an internet connection, you can access a variety of reports at a password-protected web portal – and all these are in real-time so you can see exactly what is happening even if you are away.
3. Remote management of POS system
This amazing feature also gives you more control than just viewing what is happening. You can also make changes to products from a remote location as long as you have an internet connection. Logging on to the Lighthouse interface gives you the power to change any details about your product like the price, quantity, or product description. You can also make changes to your POS menu options remotely, giving you the power to control your POS system no matter where you are.
4. Access help resources
There are a number of online help resources available if you need assistance with using Harbortouch’s Lighthouse feature. The chat feature connects you with a technician at any time of the day or night with just one click – no need for a phone call. Your questions are responded to instantly, eliminating the need to wait for replies to emails. There are also other help resources available like how-to videos. All these resources ensure that the POS is user friendly to any user level – novice or advanced.
So if you’re looking for a POS system that gives you complete control over your business activities regardless of your location, then Harbortouch’s Lighthouse feature should be your first choice.
