Serving Up Success With Cloud POS

By Brian Albright, Field Technologies

Providing multiple layers of services has helped this VAR succeed without relying on support contracts.

There is increased interest in cloud-based point of sale (POS) solutions, and according to Michael Riches of Buckeye POS and Pelican POS, these solutions can be particularly appealing in the restaurant sector. Buckeye POS is a Columbus, OH-based reseller that specializes in iPad-based POS solutions. The company’s client base consists primarily of bars and restaurants.

Earlier this year, Buckeye POS began working with Katalina’s, a local Columbus eatery. A business consultant working with the restaurant referred the owners to Buckeye POS when they mentioned that they needed a new POS system. Up to that point, the restaurant had used a traditional Windows-based POS.
