Reliability in Case of Emergency

There are times when the broadband connection in your store has failed. This can be caused by a faulty DSL or cable modem, a faulty hub/switch, or a failure of your broadband internet service provider. ICS and Vision offer a low-cost solution in the event you no longer have internet access. Using a USB plug-in modem and a dial-up internet account (like Netzero), we are able to configure your store system to switch to a dial-up connection for processing credit card transactions at the point of sale. While the response is not 3-4 seconds per transaction, it is about 6-7 seconds.
