Lightning - Lightyears ahead!
Lightning began operations in 1989, more than twenty years ahead of of its nearest competitor. Over more than thirty years, we have invested millions to build a robust platform and have mastered the systems requirements of multi-store specialty retailers. We are the go-to experts for POS systems required by the retail sector.
Lightning - No fancy gizmos
Our nearest competitor tries to be everything to everybody including restaurants, so the screens can sometimes be cluttered and difficult to navigate.
Lightning is not cluttered with unnecessary features, plug-ins or paid module extensions. We are focused on retail, yes, your retail business. We don't take orders for coffee and a donut.
Lightning - No captive Payment Processing service
Unlike its nearest competitor, Lightning does not require use of a captive processor to obtain the lowest subscription rate.
Lightning - Fully Integrated e-Commerce solution
Lightning has its Online POS and E-Commerce systems built on a single platform. This means total integration in real time. Updates are seamless and automatic between in-store sales and internet sales. No double entries. No manual checking and balancing.
Lightning - There for you even when the internet is down
Only Lightning Online Point of Sale has a solution if you lose internet. Yes, this will happen, but we have you covered. Lightning Emergency Mode, which is always included in your subscription, will protect you in the event of an internet outage or slowdown. Don't underestimate the power of an off-line mode, Lightning Online Point of Sale is here for you.
Lightning - More transparent pricing
Lightning posts its subscription pricing on its website. There are no hidden costs, you get what you see. Its nearest competitor has a rather opaque route of providing you a special price.
