The Accumula Cloud stores your data from all connected sources (Magento, LightSpeed Retail, Lightspeed Onsite, Shopify, MailChimp, etc) and provides the backbone for all the Accumula apps.
The Accumula Integration Services run in the Accumula Cloud and transfer data back and forth between Accumula and point of sale like Lightspeed Retail and Vend and Ecommerce services like Shopify and Magento. By logging into the Accumula Web Interface, you can control the preferences and settings for each integration.
