Select your POS Software first!!!

Many times a business owner will buy a computer, printers and other hardware and then look for software, these retailers could have saved a lot of time and money by selecting POS Software first.

The reason to buy POS Software first is because point of sale software will have pos hardware and operating requirements. For example, most software will require a certain version of Windows, Unix or Dos. Additionally each POS Software program may only function with certain types of printers, bar code scanners, cash drawers and credit card readers.

If a computer is purchased first, then the POS Software choices will be limited, and could have an impact on the efficiency of the business. Selecting the POS Software first often saves money and frustration. Although Retail ADVANTAGE POS Software will work on any computer that can run windows 98, nt, 2000, xp or xp pro, we always recommend you decide on your software first. 

Buy from the same source

Purchasing hardware and software from different companies can lead to frustrating situations. For example, when there is a problem and a call for support is made, blaming the other party could result. The POS Software company will point the finger at the hardware company, and so on and so forth. Some hardware only vendors will not have all the cables and accessories needed to work with all the software programs available. With the competitive and low pricing on our pos hardware products it would be most practical if you bought both POS Software and pos hardware from us.
