  • Haven't Got Time to Wait in That Queue....!

    To prevent long queues and disgruntled customers, Bluestore POS allows a number of terminals to be run alongside each other in busy stores.

    Due to the way in which the terminal application works, several store terminals all run in sync with each other. Stock is updated on all terminals at once when a sale is made or stock is adjusted using the goods receipt and stock count functions.

    If the store cannot connect to the cloud for some reason, internet connection downtime or ISP problems, the terminals in store keep running. Stock is still synchronised between the store terminals which is not possible if each terminal is a standalone browser based POS.

    This is where our Smart Client technology comes into its own. It means the store keeps on running with no difference to the user when your internet connection wavers, it simply starts synchronising with the cloud again once the connection is restored. There is no limit to the length of time it will keep working without being connected to the internet.

    We've added some information on the support knowledge base to help guide you through setting up and configuring multiple terminals:

    Serve your customers quicker by setting up a second Bluestore POS terminal in your store. It costs just £5 / $8 per month extra which will pay for itself in no time if you have abandoned shopping baskets due to queues at busy times.
