    Customer Management

    Customers have always been complex. They like to be pampered and made to feel extremely important.

    Point of Sale

    So much more than a simple cash register, the New Standard Point of Sale software allows you to easily search by title, keywords, contributor, multiple identifiers (ISBN, EAN, UPC, etc), and up to five user-defined fields. The flexible power of the POS allows part-timers, with little training, to ring up sales in mere minutes! You don't have to worry that the summer intern won't know that your New York Times bestsellers are all 20% off, or that Mrs. Henderson gets a 10% discount for being such a valued customer for all those years. Our software remembers all of the important information and is able to automatically apply these types of discounts in a variety of ways that reduce the stress and the need to be constantly "hands on" for your management.
