We understand that it's critical your business not be at the whim of a spotty internet connection. Our system operates locally, but provides the information you need to make decisions 24/7 available through our cloud features.
With the other guys, a spotty WiFi connection could mean dollars lost until your system reconnects.
Everyone offers support. But our best-in-class, 24/7 support and large variety of services means help is just a call away.
Our US-based, in-house support is the same team that sold you your system, so you can rest assured you're getting deep expertise for your business!
Purchase orders, customer management, and reporting are critical to any business' success. While Epos Now offers these features, with JOOMee all these features are managed through single screens, minimizing back and forth, and saving you valuable time.
Purchase ordering includes pre-populated "Suggested Orders" based off of sales reports or "Understocked Orders" based off of reorder thresholds.
Our deep reporting capabilities and linear customer management screens make it easy to find what you're looking for or dive deep into your data for greater insights.
In addition to greater password security and two-factor authentication, JOOMee offers a hybrid approach: an in-store database with cloud-based features. This means critical information is available online, but your most sensitive information isn't vulnerable to online hacking.
With Epos Now's fully cloud-based system and more relaxed security settings, unfortunately they cannot promise the same level of protection.
