NetSuite is one of the very popular cloud based, high end, enterprise level ERP solution. Since NetSuite is a hosted solution, like all other cloud solutions, the solution is on an environment shared by many other companies using the same solution.
There are many cloud based POS solutions available for NetSuite. However all of them have the same inherent problem, the speed and the connectivity to the internet. In normal circumstances, the ERP users, when using the system do not send the request as frequently as the requests are sent by a POS solution. Everytime you scan an item, a request goes to the server internet to find the item information and prices. In a retail environment when a cashier hundreds of items in a few minutes, the cloud based solutions often have problem keeping pace with those requests.
x2x NetSuite RMH solution was developed with Retail Management Hero (RMH) which is a windows based software. The data is updated back and forth between NetSuite on a regular basis and most of the data is available locally to the POS locally thereby reducing the request being sent to NetSuite and speeding up the whole process.
