In my travels across the US, I've learned that several states have specific reporting requirements for liquor stores (eg: sales by volume in Washington State, OLCC reporting in Oregon, TABC/Comptroller reporting in Texas, etc).
Obviously, a point of sale system that can automate these state specific reporting requirements would be very beneficial to liquor stores in these states.
As I am working on some technology solutions for these state specific requirements, I'd enjoy the opportunity to learn about any state specific reporting requirements for liquor stores located in the following states:
I'm available to meet in person and/or online. We would work out some sort of compensation for your time.
Please contact me if you are a liquor store located in one of the above states (firstname.lastname@example.org or 208-340-5632). Thanks!

"The State of Oregon, acting by and through the Oregon Liquor Control Commission, (“Agency”), is issuing this Request for Information for a Point-of-Sale (POS) software for the Distilled Spirits Supply Chain to assist the Agency’s future buy decision. The desirable solution will merge computer hardware, software and peripheral equipment with improved operating practices for managing inventory for our liquor agent’s throughout the State of Oregon. The solution will increase accuracy and improve flexibility and responsiveness through real-time liquor inventory management and revenue capture."
Basically, they are soliciting information from POS vendors for a possible standard point of sale system to be used at all of the 280+ agency liquor stores in the state of Oregon.
If you are a liquor retailer, what are your thought on this? Are you OK with being told what POS system you must use in your store by a state agency?
