I'm the developer of a cloud based Point of Sale system - SplitAbility POS. This blog unpacks and explains some of the technology associated with on-line POS systems. Specifically leaning toward hospitality type usages.
I look at some the differences in legacy systems, the pros and cons of the modern systems and why I'm backing the cloud!

Examples of the the dashboard formats are shown here and can be adjusted for any date / time period using the toolbar and calendar:

These charts are a handy way to set or check other business activity e.g. staff level scheduling or takings from previous time periods.
Other built-in reports include inventory and best sellers.
As always you can generate many custom reports from the transaction journal.
