How will TouchPOS be released?
CAPITAL TouchPOS will be released first (probably in around 60 days) as a basic add-on component for CAPITAL Business Manager. It will be available for $795 plus GST.
Who is it suitable for?
This edition would be good for businesses such as wholesalers who do counter sales. If a site required a fairly straightforward POS system but also wanted a seamlessly integrated accounting back end with financials.
What will the pricing be for a complete system?
Total pricing for the above edition will be –
Business Manager + financials = $2290
Total = $3085 (software only)
The above is single site only excluding GST.
Must I include the financials (GL) ?
It would be less without financials, i.e., you wanted CAPITAL to manage all stock ordering, back ordering, etc., but wished to continue to run another application for financial reporting. In this case Business Manager alone would be $1495 plus $795 for TouchPOS, exclusive of GST.
Will there be a POS specific edition?
Under development and this will take longer, is a dedicated POS orientated version of Business Manager with support for off site branches (registers), back office integration, multiple tills, vouchers/gift certificates, loyalty program, a sophisticated Deal Broker (“coupon” manager), and other features. Pricing has not yet been set.
What differentiates TouchPOS from other POS systems?
One market segment we believe we will support well are retail type businesses along the lines of Ikea, Harvey Norman, etc. Any sort of business that is broadening their product lines to include, say, kitchenware or home decor, etc. In this case they need POS for the smaller item sale side. But also need a system for placing and tracking bigger orders for that purchase of a sofa or bed or refrigerator. Because CAPITAL already has very sophisticated order management, it makes sense to leverage that existing technology.
For example, our TouchPOS system will create a quick sale but operators can press a button and turn that sale into an order instead, capturing the customer’s delivery address and contact details along the way.
And by the way, because our billing and ordering systems have sophisticated serial tracking capabilities, all version of our POS software will have the same capabilities. A user will be able to scan a bar code and select a serial number or scan a combined SKU + serial number bar code. Because we are also a full ERP solution, we can do a lot of cool things on the POS side that other companies wouldn’t attempt.
