Q: How is AccuPOS different from my Accounting Software?

A: AccuPOS is designed to close the gap between point of sale and your accounting software.

Since we started in 1997, our point of sale experience has taught us that any business, whether they are a retail store, restaurant, country club or bar, wants to process sales, collect customer information, maintain better inventory control and still use a mainstream accounting software for ALL of their accounting needs.

We developed AccuPOS to do just that:

  • Collect the sales and customer information in a fast paced customer-oriented environment.
  • Report the sales details automatically to the financial software for inventory and accounting purposes, with no redundant accounting features.

Q: How is AccuPOS different from other POS systems?

A: AccuPOS is the only POS system that reports line item detail to QuickBooks, Sage 50 US Edition (formerly Peachtree), Sage 50 Canadian Edition (formerly Simply Accounting).

This gives you an important advantage: as there is no need to relearn inventory, purchasing or extra accounting functions. The quantity on hand and inventory information is in the same program that you order inventory and pay vendors from.

Q: Does AccuPOS work on an Apple computer, or an iPad, iPhone, Android Tablet, etc?

A: The management back-end of AccuPOS is only installable on a PC with any professional version of Windows. The Point of Sale front-end can be installed on a PC or an Android device. AccuPOS is not available on any Apple hardware.

Q: I am currently using another point of sale, how can I get my information into AccuPOS?
