New POS system for all liquor stores in Oregon?

Update 2/7/2023: Bid Notification is out on the OregonBuys website. Look for OLCC Distilled Spirits Supply Chain RFP.  You must be a registered vendor/supplier to see the RFP and respond.


 I have had multiple requests from liquor stores in the state of Oregon to provide an update regarding the OLCC's search for a new POS system.

I do not work for the OLCC but have been in communication with the OLCC. I also have met in person or online with multiple liquor stores in Oregon.

Stiil using the Microsoft Dynamics RMS Point of Sale Software in 2022?


If you don't want to listen to me ramble for 3 minutes, here are the key messages in the video: 

1) Yes, Microsoft RMS still works even though the July 2021 End Of Life date has passed 

2) Support for RMS will continue to wane over the next couple of years 

3) Something will happen that will require you to replace Microsoft RMS with a different point of sale software program 

4) If you are hanging on to Microsoft RMS, have a plan ready for when #2 or #3 happens. 

If you are a retailer in the United States who is still using the Microsoft RMS point of sale software and need some advice on replacement options for RMS, please contact me at 208-340-5632 or
