Best Point of Sale Systems for School Stores

With August just around the corner, I have been asked about what I would recommend for a student store or a school store needing a point of sale solution.

I've worked with multiple on and off campus school stores in the past and here is what works best:
  • Stores in Universities or Colleges generally use the Blackbaud solution which generally interfaces with other Blackbaud solutions like student accounts.
  • Off campus stores that are not directly affiliated with an actual school tend to use NCR CounterPoint SQL or Retail Management Hero (new version of Microsoft RMS).
  • Stores in primary and secondary schools generally look at basic Windows based point of sale systems like Retail Management Hero or look at the mobile/subscription based systems like Cloud Retailer or NCR Silver - depends on whether the district wants to make an outright purchase or pay an on-going monthly fee for the point of sale software.
Are you  in the US and in need of no cost retail point of sale advice?  I'm happy to help and can be reached on my cell at 208-340-5632 (I am on Mountain Time) or via email at kevinantosh@gmail.com. There is also a contact form to the right that can be used to reach me.
