10 Advan­ta­ges of Cloud-TSS

The tech­ni­cal secu­ri­ty system (TSS) can be ope­ra­ted in two pos­si­ble ways: Via the Inter­net in a cloud or by addi­tio­nal hard­ware at the cash regis­ter.
Moder­ne Kas­sen­sys­te­me sind oft auf eine cloud­ba­sier­te TSE ange­wie­sen. Cloud TSEs offer a number of advan­ta­ges over hard­ware TSEs when it comes to fis­ca­li­zing cash registers.

1. Fast and Cost-Effec­ti­ve Integration

The inte­gra­ti­on of a cloud TSE into a POS system is fast and cost-effec­ti­ve, as the requi­red data is lar­ge­ly exch­an­ged auto­ma­ti­cal­ly via inter­faces. This means that new legal requi­re­ments or new func­tions can also be inte­gra­ted easily and seam­less­ly. Like­wi­se, swit­ching to ano­t­her POS pro­vi­der is unpro­ble­ma­tic, as the cloud-based soft­ware can be easily adapted.

2. Updates via Soft­ware Update

With cloud TSE, updates are auto­ma­tic and the­re­fo­re cost-effec­ti­ve. The updates are instal­led on the soft­ware side. The users do not have any tedious extra work.

3. Fle­xi­bi­li­ty and Fast Scaling

The use of cloud TSE enab­les high fle­xi­bi­li­ty in terms of the number of TSEs deploy­ed. In addi­ti­on, the number of cash regis­ters equip­ped with cloud TSE and the number of tran­sac­tions can be scaled quickly.

4. Inde­pen­dence from Hard­ware Components

A cloud TSE does not requi­re local hard­ware instal­la­ti­ons in the form of an SD card, USB sticks or TPM module at the POS. This eli­mi­na­tes the need for on-site instal­la­ti­ons and the asso­cia­ted costs and time (for examp­le, the deploy­ment of a tech­ni­ci­an). This is important in the long run becau­se hard­ware TSEs have a cer­ti­fi­ca­te life after which the hard­ware must be repla­ced. With no hard­ware com­pon­ents, there is no main­ten­an­ce and not­hing can be broken or lost.

5. Trans­pa­rent Costs

Cloud TSE can be deploy­ed cost-effec­tively, making them cheap for cus­to­mers to buy and ope­ra­te. There can be no addi­tio­nal costs due to hard­ware fail­u­res. Cloud TSS’ have no hidden costs, so they are trans­pa­rent in their costs and cost-effec­ti­ve in the long run.

6. Hig­hest Data Security

By law, the data must be stored in Ger­ma­ny. fis­ka­ly meets all legal requi­re­ments. The fis­ka­ly fis­ka­ly server loca­ti­on is in Frank­furt am Main.

7. Secu­ri­ty & Fle­xi­bi­li­ty through Con­ta­ct­less Delivery

The fis­ka­ly Cloud TSE is cloud-based, so it can be deli­ve­r­ed secu­re­ly and con­ta­ct­less­ly to tax­payers. This pro­vi­des maxi­mum fle­xi­bi­li­ty in the deli­very, as it can be made at any time — even in lockdown.

8. Easy Moni­to­ring & Com­pa­ti­bi­li­ty with Other Ser­vice Providers

A cloud TSE is com­pa­ti­ble with all modern sys­tems becau­se it works by means of inter­faces. Archi­ving sys­tems, accoun­ting pro­grams and other tools can be con­nec­ted to your system in just a few steps without affec­ting the POS system. Cen­tral moni­to­ring allows all TSEs and their acti­vi­ties to be tra­cked at a glance, even across mul­ti­ple busi­ness locations.

9. Easy Data Manage­ment & Data Export

In the event of a cash regis­ter inspec­tion, the data can be made avail­ab­le to the audi­tor quick­ly and easily by means of export. Via the dash­board, you always have your data avail­ab­le and can manage it with little effort.

10. Sui­ta­ble for Mobile POS Devices like Tablet Cash Registers

With modern tablet cash regis­ters, hard­ware TSE is very com­plex or even impos­si­ble to imple­ment. With cloud TSE, you can still use your mobile devices like tablets and smart­pho­nes with ease.

What to Con­si­der Before Deploy­ing Hard­ware TSS Solutions

Hard­ware TSEs create the signa­tu­re and store the infor­ma­ti­on on site. To ensure tamper pro­tec­tion, the hard­ware TSE has a cer­ti­fi­ca­te life (5 years). After the cer­ti­fi­ca­te expi­res, the hard­ware must be repla­ced. Hard­ware TSEs are high-main­ten­an­ce, costly and time-con­suming. They are also dif­fi­cult to scale becau­se hard­ware is requi­red per each POS system or per network.
