“What if my Internet goes down?!”

Occasionally, some people who are considering PayGo on the cloud ask… “What happens if my internet goes down? I can’t do business!”

Both scenarios involve hardware failing and both require an emergency plan.  We’re confident that getting back up and running in PayGo Webdirect will be MUCH faster than restoring a computer that houses your POS program and data.

The risk of not being able to run your business over the internet is LESS than what you might think.  In fact, it’s been a non-issue for all of our clients since our launch in 2008.Read More
