New Microsoft POS Partners and Retail Management System

Posted by David Hunter at 11:13 AM ET.

Press release:

Furthering its commitment to delivering versatile retail software that meets the unique needs of small retailers, Microsoft Corp. today announced new relationships with three well-known hardware manufacturers to provide point-of-sale (POS) terminals pre-loaded with Microsoft® Point of Sale software. The company today also debuted the latest version of Microsoft Retail Management System featuring multiple enhancements as well as improved integration with Microsoft Dynamics™ GP financial management software.

Microsoft has teamed with retail POS hardware manufacturers Casio Inc., DigiPoS Systems Group and HP to introduce complete hardware and software solutions that deliver versatility and reliability for smaller retailers. These vendors’ offerings feature Microsoft Point of Sale — an easy-to-use, affordable application that enables small, independent retailers to track and manage sales, inventory and customer information — packaged with hardware and peripherals to simplify the purchasing, deployment and implementation processes for retailers.

The release of Microsoft Retail Management System 1.3 brings improved overall performance to small and midsize businesses, including improved scalability to meet the needs of midsize retailers. Enhanced integration of the software’s Headquarters module with Microsoft Dynamics GP creates greater business agility and financial management reach, including better coordination and tracking of store and headquarters information between the two applications, the ability to better track inventory throughout the supply chain, improved visibility into sales transactions at the individual store level, and deeper insights into general ledger activities.
