Microsoft Point of Sale
Here's one to watch. <!——StartFragment ——> Microsoft Point of Sale.
There have been a few stumbling blocks for many retailers in implementing POS systems in their shops. Cost, complication and interoperability are a few of the issues that normally end up becoming show-stoppers.
When one considers the cost factor of this new POS software from Microsoft, combined with the general public's (read: small retailers') already high confidence and familiarity with MS products, it's hard to imagine that every small to mid-sized retailer not already using a POS system won't snatch this one right away. In fact, even if they already have a system, there's a pretty good chance their existing POS has been giving them trouble that they'd rather do without. Enter Microsoft Point of Sale, MSRP $799!
Microsoft has really figured this one out nicely. They're really stressing the interoperability/simplicity thing, especially when speaking of Microsoft Office:
"Unlike other POS products that provide isolated snapshots of a business's aspects, Microsoft Point of Sale offers shop owners a holistic view of their business by working with the Microsoft Office System and accounting applications such as QuickBooks. This integration, along with the product's familiar Windows® interface and customizable touch-screen controls, simplifies and enhances the ease of use of Microsoft Point of Sale for owners and employees. Training on the system typically takes less than an hour."
I'd be willing to bet E-commerce interaction is in there as well. Let's hope it doesn't require use of MS web servers, scripting, and god forbid, FrontPage, lest I'll be learning to be a Microsoft web developer.
I'll be looking this one over as it becomes available. If it has even anywhere near the features necessary to run a small shop efficiently, I can think of many clients who will want this one. Stay tuned!
Wait, I cannot ftaohm it being so straightforward. (posted 3:01pm, 14Dec11)
