Hybrid POS means you get all of the benefits of a cloud system with the reliability of a traditional in-house server. OrderCounter has perfected best of both worlds with the reliability of SQL at the store level but the accessibility of a cloud solution. No “System Down”? in the middle of a lunch rush because of an internet outage. No loss of credit card processing or connection backups with data limits. And the power of information at your fingertips the rest of the time, whether working behind the bar or maybe having a frosty drink of your own on your favorite beach.
