Frequently asked questions

What is a POS system?
POS stands for Point of Sale and at a very basic level means the area where a customer completes a transaction.

POS software can be thought of like a digital cash register, allowing business owners to process sales and take payments. POS software also typically includes other functionality related to running a store including inventory management, stock control, customer loyalty programs, reporting and employee management.

What is cloud-based POS software?
Traditional desktop point of sale software is downloaded onto one computer and physically connected to a cash register.

Cloud-based point of sale software can be directly accessed from the web and offers a streamlined system that works on most devices and gives users the ability to manage their POS anywhere there’s a wifi connection.

Can I run POS software on any device?
BetterHQ POS system is a web-based point of sale software. This means your POS software will work on any device including a PC, Mac or iPad. All you need to do to get started is log in via a web browser e.g. Chrome.
What are the benefits of a cloud POS system?

Using a cloud based POS system gives you the flexibility and mobility to take payments on the go e.g. at your customer’s table, or at a market stall.

24/7 access

Access your POS software anywhere, anytime even when you aren’t physically in store. Simply log in to your account and you can see real-time sales figures and run reports or add new products or customers.

Beautiful, and intuitive

Cloud based POS software is still relatively new on the market so you get all the benefits of software that has been built with the latest design and user experience principles in mind.

The latest version

BetterHQ is automatically updated in the cloud. So you’ll always use the latest version with no need to manually download new versions and features.

Cost effective

BetterHQ POS pricing works on a SaaS (software as service) pricing model.  So you pay a low monthly fee instead of a larger upfront payment for your software licence.  Paying month to month also means you aren’t locked into a contract and can cancel anytime.


Your data is safely stored in the cloud so you won’t be affected by theft or accidents to physical hardware. All data servers have 24/7 security and several layers of encryption.


Cloud based software makes it a lot easier to integrate add-ons or connect with other software applications. Check out the BetterHQ integrations.
