WatchDog-POS Features & Functionality

WatchDog-POS by DimenXional Cloud Technologies was specifically designed to seamlessly integrate with the new cloud inventory management solution from FishBowl named “BoxStorm”.

FishBowl has designed Boxstorm as the perfect cloud-based inventory solution for SMB’s. Its powerful features and capabilities streamline inventory management and give business owners more flexibility by allowing them to manage their inventory from any location, on any device.

What BoxStorm does not have in its terrific feature set is a Full-Function “Point of Sale” (“POS”). DimenXional Cloud Technologies has targeted this key missing feature by developing WatchDog-POS. Originally targeted at the “Direct Store Distribution” market, DimenXional Cloud Technologies has engineered WatchDog-POS with a wide feature set that addresses many other markets that need a portable POS.

Most importantly, WatchDog-POS provides two modes of operation

  • Mode #1: WatchDog-POS connected to BoxStorm via any available internet connection

However, what DimenXional Cloud Technologies learned through collaborative early customer efforts is that a great POS not only works ONLINE but also works OFF-LINE

  • Mode#2: WatchDog-POS can be disconnected from BoxStorm while still providing the full suite of POS features. When an internet connection is available, WatchDog-POS can upload and update all OFF-LINE use to BoxStorm.
