Back Office in the Cloud
Occasionally (well less occasionally with the introduction of COVID-19) we all want to be able to access the business information remotely when we do manage to leave the business.
Perhaps we want to share information with the accountants – For example the End of Day readings so they can handle these for the company Accounts.
Or, perhaps we are looking to do that Urgent Price change or tweak a promotion that isn’t quite working as well as we envisaged?? The Cloud Back Office allows you to do all this and more…
A Cloud Backoffice should be more than just being able to review your turnover and see the sales as they happen (Obviously we do both) it should also act as a safe storage should the worst happen.
With our cloud backoffice a full backup of your EPOS terminals is taken live – A Bit like DropBox for Tills.
Obviously having a backup is key these days, but like Dropbox, our Cloud system not only keeps your data safe it also allows you to review aspects of the business.
Access to Reports
Since all of your sales data is stored in the cloud, access to live reports are readily on hand from any web enabled device including your Mobile phone or your iPad.
Select from a wide variety of reports that detail aspects of your business.
myEPOS Cloud is multisite, you can report on multiple sites figures from a single place.
Fiscal Data and your Accountants
Obviously, we all need business accounts and generally farm this out to an Accountant.
With myEPOS Cloud, you can easily provide access to your Sales data for entire periods, such as for VAT returns or similar.
With the cloud, we also have connectivity through API’s so figures online can be communicated to other packages.
Sometimes we need to deplete old stocks or keep up with the local competition. An ideal way to draw customers in is by providing some kind of deal.
Promotions can easily be assembled; they are also fully automated and accurately reported on in the Cloud Back-office.
Sometimes running successful promotions isn’t always about making a profit on the actual promotion so much as increasing footfall and expenditure elsewhere within the business.
myEPOS Cloud Back-office helps you achieve this with backed up data.
With a simple and easy to use navigation tree you can gain a picture of your business quickly, without any of the fuss.
Easily update Products, Screen Layouts, manage your Staff, Visualise Reports, adjust promotions and gain insights in real-time.

With this flexibility can I lock it down?
myEPOS Cloud has a flexible approach to access control.
Your myEPOS cloud account has the ability to Allow multiple users and to restrict which sites / features these users can access
With your access control, you are free to restrict managers to just their venue, to See reports and not Edit if desired whilst also allowing your account access to all the figures they require.
