Datasym.POS - Retail Control & Flexibility


Proven in thousands of retail installations, Datasym.POS for
Retail is a comprehensive and
cost-effective EPOS front office
application that gives the modern
retailer all the control and flexibility
they need to fully maximise sales and respond quickly to changing demand.

Decades of continuous investment makes Datasym.POS for Retail
incredibly feature-rich, enabling
retailers to take full advantage of
the latest innovations in EPOS
with the added reassurance of a
smooth upgrade to new functions
and technologies in the future.

Datasym.POS for Retail can operate independently or link in real time to Datasym’s Stockade SQL back office, and is fully scalable from stand alone
to multi outlet operations. All with a refreshingly low cost of
on-going ownership.
