3. Two-Factor Authentication
Some software, such as Alice POS, are more secure thanks to two-factor authentication. This means that two key pieces of information are required to access the system. In the case of Alice POS, you must have the installation key, as well as the password associated with a user (that must of course exist in the system).
With Alice POS, you can also benefit from the ability to customize the mandatory content of passwords, such as the required length and content of passwords (e.g. special characters, capital letters etc.). Two-factor authentication remains an effective way to greatly reduce threats to your system.
4. Increased Management of User Access
There are points of sale, such as Alice POS, that offer many functions to manage the various user accesses. Indeed, as an administrator, you have the ability to quickly delete and create users even remotely. This is key if you have new or dismissed employees to manage. User access management is a key security element offered by Alice POS.
5. Technical and Ongoing Support
In the event of an unforeseen event or intrusion, it is always reassuring to know that a person is available 24/7 to deal with the situation and accompany you. A point-of-sale system that offers reliable support services reduces the anxiety that sometimes accompanies the implementation of new software in a company. Technical support that accompanies you throughout the process, from installation to software use, is an essential service. You can also check if the solution offers a tool that shows in real time the level of service availability (e.g. a Status Page).
6. Cloud Solution
Another important aspect to consider when buying a point of sale is to check if it offers an cloud-based solution. This allows you to protect your company’s data and make regular backups automatically. By being stored in the cloud, your data avoids being lost by major natural forces, such as flooding or fire. In addition, a cloud solution allows you to manage and control your business remotely, anywhere and at any time. If your software does not have cloud functionality and is installed on site, you should be aware that you are at risk of data loss.
Alice POS is currently used in several countries around the world, including Egypt and Alaska. We have servers located in the United States and in Canada. This point of sale system can also, on request, place a banner on any server and specify in which country the data can be hosted. Thanks to its cloud structure, Alice POS is more secure than performing local manual backups. Indeed, if your computer stops working or your hard drive crashes, you will never lose your data with Alice POS because everything is stored in the cloud on protected, remote servers. You will never need to make backups or worry about losing important information again.
