Reliability Starts at the Edge:
How optimizing tax technology can improve customer experience and remove frustrations

The threat of getting knocked offline makes having reliable tax technology all the more critical, as retailers start to question whether the cloud is the most reliable place to be. The good news is that new technologies and advances in edge computing are creating options for retailers large and small.
That’s why a tax calculation system that uses edge computing is so important. It keeps working even if a retailer loses internet connection or their bandwidth decreases.
