A sweet POS

Product: TouchSuite Pro

Invenstar LLC's Touchsuite Pro is a POS system that emphasizes simplicity - ease of use, ease of installation, simple inventory tracking and efficient marketing tools.

According to Terry Glatt, President of Invenstar, the key to Touchsuite Pro is "it's simple to set up and simple to operate." Glatt said the ease of use of the POS touch screen system makes formal training unnecessary. Setting up the program is basically a "plug it in and go" process, he said, making use of the product - between installation and operation - as close to a cake walk as POS systems get.

Conflict resolver

Glatt said Touchsuite Pro also rarely malfunctions or requires maintenance, since it includes both the hardware module and the POS software in one package. Users avoid having to buy separate software and hardware programs from different providers, which eliminates compatibility problems that arise from integration efforts.

"It comes with the software already loaded on our hardware," Glatt said. "Normally you have a software application that you then have to buy hardware for, then buy all the separate components ... and guess what? Software is going to conflict, it always happens. But ours doesn't crash because there's none of this conflict.

"The hardware and software programs are all built together by one company and programmed to run with each other."

Advanced inventory tracker

Glatt noted Touchsuite Pro also includes a flexible inventory tracking feature that can be adjusted when sales items are modified.

"Let's say you're a convenience store selling soda - you can sell a case, a pack or an individual soda," he said. "We have the ability to inventory it all three ways and break them out. So say we have five cases of [soda], three packs and two individual and then, oh, we've used the individuals and want to break another case [into individual units]. It can do that automatically."

In other words, when the individual can is sold, the POS system will automatically register that a particular case of soda has been divided up into individual units.

Glatt said the system also has a marketing component that allows retailers with customer tracking information to send out text message-based promotions.
