Believe it or not, not everyone who uses LightSpeed Point of Sale knows which kind they’ve got. It’s not really their fault. Where there was only 1 product, now there are 2 and both have had a few names. LightSpeed OnSite (official name) used to be named LightSpeed Pro. Before there was LightSpeed Retail (official name), LightSpeed Pro was simply named LightSpeed Point of Sale. To add to the possible confusion, LightSpeed Retail is also sometimes called LightSpeed Cloud.
Here are the key differences:
- LightSpeed OnSite aka LightSpeed Pro, is exclusively for Macs. It’s an application that’s installed on your Mac computer. It matters what kind of computer you have.
- LightSpeed Retail aka LightSpeed Cloud, is web based. What kind of computer you have doesn’t matter.
