Social Media Integration?

We are looking into integrations to offer within the point of sale into social media, such as facebook or twitter.  What would you want to see from this type of feature?  Where have you found success, and what could we do to make marketing on these platforms easier for you?  Let us know, as development on these features will start soon.
5.2 Available To Supported Users

The 5.2 update for the software has been available to supported users for a couple of weeks now, and we've gotten some good feedback from those who have tried the new register designer, as well as on customer pictures.

We've been watching with excitement to see what customers do with the tool, and we're interested in feedback.  What would you like to see from it that it cannot do, or that you find particularly challenging?  Are there different things you'd like to add to the register screen that aren't available now?  Please, let us know.

For those who haven't yet tried it, information is available freely on it in the latest version of the manual.  If you're supported and you've updated, you can also just access the designer through the system administration menu by clicking on Register Designer.

If you haven't updated, but you want to, please feel free to contact us for assistance!
Using the Importer in Version 5.2+

One of the other major features in version 5.2 was an ability to do imports of departments, categories, customers, and items from spreadsheets.  These can either be new records, or you can use them to also update existing records.  If you're updating, it will match based on the identifying field for the information you're bringing in, so you can't use it to for example change customer IDs.  This field is the department ID for departments, the category ID for categories, the item ID for items, and the customer ID for customers.

Make certain you have a backup before importing data.  If you import incorrectly, you can end up with many nonsense records in your database, and our solution is going to be to go to your last backup.

To get to the importer, you will have to be logged in as an administrator.  If you are, then it will be under the system administration menu as the "Import" option.

From there, you will need to select which type of import you are doing, then browse to the file you want to import from.  

Once you have that selected, you'll need to perform what's called mapping - setting which field in your spreadsheet goes where in the database.  There is also a checkbox on this screen that determines if you're updating existing records or only importing new ones.  Once this process is done, you can click import to bring the records in.

For further information on this feature, including more detailed instructions, consult the most recent version of the  user's manual.
New Website Available

We've gone live with our new website, which can be found at either the address or  In addition to a few testimonials from customers, which we are still welcoming, and a general redesign and updating, this site features a lot more mobile friendliness than the old one.

For the time being, the old site will remain available, but you can go through either site for a real time remote helpdesk connection if you're a phone supported user in need of assistance.

The new ecommerce shop is where we request that unsupported or email supported users looking to purchase a support call go through.  The direct link to this is  here.
The current version of the software, available for supported users, is 5.2.2  If you want to get back on support, contact sales at (919) 387-7597 x100.

We will be closed on the 22nd and 23rd of November for Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!
