Infrasys Cloud POS is versatile and provides different implementation options into only to suit different scale of operations but also network security requirements of our customers. For large hotel implementations a dedicated server is always preferred for a better control on outgoing access to Infrasys Cloud HQ (rather than setting all POS client to have internet access), this also provides failover capability on application level. During network downtime, workstations can switch to standalone mode to resume operation and once the network is available sales data automatically synchronises with Infrasys Cloud. Recommended server requirements are not extensive and since we support virtual machines, the cost of a small server footprint on site can be further reduced. There is no limit to the number of POS Clients supported during a standalone mode.
There are no limit to the number of workstation running in standalone mode. All terminals can be installed and setup as smartstation which have the capability to run in standalone mode.
Because the system can run in standalone mode in case of network failure, transactional data is locally available for the hotel to operate without any impact on operations. The operation has access to property level reporting as well and there is no additional or manual work needed. Once the network connection to the cloud becomes available, all the transactional data get uploaded to the cloud automatically. It is quite seamless.
