Cloud system actually means that data can be accessed from anywhere connected to the internet and at any time, rather than in a fixed area. In the new generation cloud POS system, the restaurant's data such as sales, stock, and cash register transactions can be transferred anywhere in the world, instead of keeping them on a computer in the restaurant. It is stored on virtual servers located in a data center. In old generation POS systems, the data kept on a computer located in the restaurant, as is customary, creates a "Single Point of Failure", that is, a high-risk situation that is dependent on a single point. For example, a disk failure in a computer memory would make restoring the saved data very costly or at the risk of never being restored again.

The main reason why the market is turning to cloud-based POS systems in billing systems is that the data is stored securely, is easy to access from anywhere, and is more open to development according to demand. Thanks to keeping all applications on a common cloud server, in addition to the menu display via QR code, which has become popular recently, It is also possible to send the selected product as an order to the POS system via QR menu.
