Amicus Built-In-Redundancy Demonstration - Keeps your business running no matter what

Do you want a new POS system that keeps your business running no matter what happens? A system to streamline operations or help impact your bottom line with promotion management.

Amicus is the system you have been looking for. You can setup Amicus to run with a redundant server, so in the event of the primary server failing, the terminal can go into redundant mode and continue taking sales. The system even detects when your primary server comes online again and will flick back over to the primary sever and upload any data from the redundant server.

In a retail environment we would normally setup the redundant server to be the terminal itself, in a hospitality environment we would setup a secondary server (usually a more powerful till) so that nothing goes down unnecessarily and the current status of all the tables and tabs is maintained.
