We have solutions to the challenges every retailer faces when implementing Point of Sale or Retail Management software.
Costs to implement your POS (Point of Sale) solution
We designed our system to make use of the Firebird relational database. Firebird is an Open Source product, which has many benefits.
The major benefit to you, is that you can use it free of charge. It does not matter how many users you put onto the system, the database stays free.
Another major advantage of Firebird is that it virtually maintains itself. That means that you don’t have to have special degree in database management to
make sure that your POS system keeps running. And you don’t have to hire someone to look after your database for you, saving you the additional expense of a

Firebird scales well with your business needs. It will run comfortably on one of your existing computers.
In fact many of our customers have only one computer in the branch, and there is no need for a dedicated server. This saves you tremendous up front costs.
As your business grows, Firebird will scale with it. It can be run on dedicated servers.
However, that does not mean that you now have to buy new versions of Windows, just to run your database on a dedicated server.
Firebird will also run on the Open Source Linux operating system. That means that you can hook up as many workstations as you like to the Linux server,
and you never have to buy additional licenses! In fact you can even download the original copy of Linux for free!
Firebird gives you complete peace-of-mind as far as data integrity goes. It’s robust engine ensures that your data is always safe and accessible,
saving you the cost and time of constantly maintaining your point of sale system.
