Small Retail POS System?

Small Retail POS System?

Small Retail POS System?

(OP)
I'm looking into purchasing a single POS terminal & software for retail use that is easily programmable, easy to use, and reliable. Boss wants a touch screen menu.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Small Retail POS System?

I am partial to Catapult by ECRS corp. since that is what my company sells and supports.  But there are many retail pos solutions out there, including one by Microsoft,  which you will find threads on this forum referencing.  You can order software off the internet if you are comfortable enough setting it up yourself, or you can check with your local register companies if you need it setup and supported for you.

Obviously we are all partial to our own product, but if you'd tell us a little more about what business you're in and what features you need we could make a better recommendation, as each system has markets it works best in.

The business deals more with services rather than material items. We work along side (and for)the US Postal Service as a mail procesing facility.

RE: Small Retail POS System?

If this is the typical "MBE type" store, most of the major systems would do a decent job for you, unless you need specific interfaces to other systems, which would require some research.  As a previous poster pointed out, we are all partial to the systems we sell (I work for the US distributor of Infinity).  Time to look at all the better systems, Infinity, RMS, Catapult, etc. and find out which has the best feature set for exactly what you do.  Other than that, all we can do is advocate our own cause, which doesn't do you much good without evalutation.

Hi beernut,

Could you tell us a bit more about your operation and the things you sell?  Are the items you sell standardized?  Or do prices vary by weight?  etc..

I have 5 Squirrel POS touch screens and 5 printers with software. You can also use other software with these terminals.
I can supply 3 other brands of POS software, 2 are trials and 1 is limited version for free.
