Process sales and run store operations

Process sales quickly and efficiently, giving your staff more time to spend with your customers. Set up your POS system with touch buttons, colour scheme and select screen size to make processing transactions quick and easy whilst minimising errors. You can also create and assign barcodes to save time at the check-out, improve customer service and accurately process transactions.

“Reckon POS offers great flexibility and options, with features that not only save time but reduce the chance of error”

Robyn Ricket, AST Consultants

Customer and stock management

Manage customer accounts and lay-bys. Build up a customer database with a full history of their transactions to see what they like, what they buy and when they buy it. POS integration with Accounts also lets you record, track and reconcile everything you buy and sell.  Identify what items make you the most money and which items don’t. Quickly view your stock levels and even see what’s on order and when you can expect it.

“Reckon is the best accounting programme I have used, and your support is 10 out of 10. I have been a bookkeeper for 30+ years.”

— Barbara Brabiner, Whale Cove
