Brink POS is a cloud-based platform, which runs on a variety of devices. Further, it does not rely on an in-house server, so if your main computer goes down, your registers will still operate. However, an active and robust internet connection is required.
The software is easy to use, and decently well-designed. It is optimized for touch. The POS system can be updated easily, and boot times are generally much quicker.
As compared to some other platforms, which are showing their age, Brink POS is a good update for the future. Is it perfect? No - it does have it's own little quirks - but it's a good step in the right direction. Once an item is rung in, it stays selected, and must be un-selected before selecting a different item to modify.
The system is much more responsive - the registers are quick to boot up, and are not reliant upon a back office server. They are compatible with separate payment devices, which are chip and Apple Pay capable.
