Review of Retail Pro Point of Sale Software

Since there are many new point of sale software programs coming on the market, I thought it would be helpful to compile some information on the Retail Pro solution which has been around for as long as I can remember.  It has been several years since I have worked directly with the Retail Pro point of sale software solution (I'm working on getting up to speed on the software), below are thoughts compiled from multiple user reviews of the software.
  • Retail pro makes our business more efficient
  • Easy to train staff on
  • Be sure to buy from a company that can provide a complete solution including support and training
  • Retail Pro is a great solution for any medium sized retailers ($1.0M plus in annual gross sales per location)
  • Easy to use
  • Multi-location polling does not work correctly
  • Difficult system to use
  • Good but not great
All of these reviews are from the last 18 months. Overall, most folks appear happy with the solution. It does appear that trying to install Retail Pro yourself and not getting a Retail Pro Partner to help you can create problems.

Overall, Retail Pro is a great solution for specialty retail stores generating more than $1,000,000 in annual gross sales per location.  I believe there are also some specials being offered - even if you already use a different software solution.
