Omnichannel is good; Speed and uptime is better.
Don't get us wrong, we do omnichannel. A single system of record in the cloud is very important. Managing and reporting on your items, promotions and customers across all channels is essential in order to compete. Omnichannel marketing, the bulk of which is delivered online and via email, is certainly worth its weight in gold.
Omnichannel features do not make up for a lack of performance at the POS.
