The coming days I will be redesigning this weblog in order to make better use of the features offered by the Movable Type 4.0 platform. I will do the redesign on the live site, so expect to note some differences in the coming days.

Retail Software Advice


Retail Software Advice

The Retail Software Advice site is a new service helping retailers selecting the right retail point-of-sale software. According to the owners of the site, they have developed a very smart matching algorithm that matches buyers with the right software, much like Google matches you with web pages relevant to your keyword searches.

To search for software, you select one of the 22 retail verticals, the size of your business —strangely enough expressed in annual revenue, which is rather insignificant for POS selection, and check some of the optional features such as Inventory Management, CRM, accounting or e-commerce.

The search results are presented in a clear table with the main characteristics for each product found. There are also two handy buttons for requesting a free demo or pricing information.

Besides the Apple hardware and the POS software, Mac resellers earn extra money with networking and typical Point of Sale devices such as barcode readers and receipt printers.

This viral video was created by halo, manufacturer of a web based Point of Sale system. Though I doubt you can solve hardware related problems with a web-based solution, the video is funny enough. Besides that, they offer $10.000 for additional videos of people destroying their POS systems.
