|•||Single Computer: If you want to install and use FusionRetail 6 only on one computer, that computer will be used for both back office and point-of-sale tasks. In this case the database (and of course SQL Server) will reside on the same computer.|
|•||Multiple Computers: If you want to use multiple computers then designate one computer as the main computer (let us call it server). Only the main computer (server) will have the store database and other computers will communicate with the main computer through the network.. The main computer is often set up in a back office and used for other tasks e.g. purchases and bar coding. The other computers can be used to perform other operations e.g. POS, accounts and CRM.|
