Separate client databases

We know that trust is key to the reputation of every business. It’s one of the reasons why we’re the only native cloud POS platform to host our client’s databases separately for lower risk of privacy breaches. So you can sleep a little easier at night.

Customizable store-level consent policy

Privacy isn’t just a superficial feature in TAKU. Wherever possible, we’ve baked privacy in by design. We’re the only cloud POS to offer an in-store customer consent form tied to a customizable store consent policy.
