Cloud & On-Premise POS/ERP Systems


Do you have a list of POS and ERP systems?  I'd like to know which ones are installed at my location and which ones are run from the cloud.  Thank you. 


Wow, this is tall order given there must be thousands of POS and ERP systems on the market!  Additionally, some vendors offer versions that can be installed on-premise and work in the cloud.  While this list is in no way complete, and impossible to keep up-to-date, there's probably enough on the list to keep you busy for quite some time.

POS Systems

Point of Sale (POS) systems are generally used by retailers within their brick and mortar stores.  We're also seeing a lot of online retailers use a POS system in conjunction with their website when they need more control over purchasing and inventory management.



ERP Systems

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are generally used by manufacturers and distributors. ERP systems are often used to track raw materials and goods as they flow through the various business processes. They include most of the features found in a POS system such as purchasing and inventory management.  They also shine when it comes to customer-based pricing, allowing goods to be priced differently by customer.



A lot of people ask us to help them pick out the perfect POS or ERP system for their business.  I'm sorry to say this is not a service Modern Retail provides.  Hopefully the above list will get you started on your quest for the perfect POS system for your business.
