With full retail point-of-sale features, we can easily handle sales, returns, orders, and layaways– even on a single ticket. Our configurable touchscreen allows you to tailor our point of sale to fit your business, minimize errors and maximize profits.  Closing a sale has never been so easy!
Validate each returned item against the original sale receipt to ensure you sold the item and you refund exactly what the customer paid.

Complete transactions quickly and keep your lines flowing with our 2 second credit card and check authorizations. Our intuitive touchscreen point of sale units allow for quick checkouts and simple training for your staff.
Take orders and put items on layaway right at the point-of-sale. The order management functionality simplifies processing a high volume of orders, including mail-order, telephone-order, and ecommerce orders.

Loyalty programs create customer loyalty by allowing frequent customers to earn points for each dollar spent or each item purchased. They can then spend their earned points at the point-of-sale, just like any other payment type.

Convert any sale, order, or layaway into a quote or put on hold for later completion. Holds and quotes can be recalled by number, date, customer name, item, or any other related value.
