Super Charged Kits!
A kit is a group of items that are sold as a package.  We have added two new features to our already very powerful kit option.  First, you can now make changes to a kit at point-of-sale:  Add or delete items, change quantities or prices, etc.  Total cost and percent of profit for the kit can optionally be displayed so you can maintain appropriate margins.  The second new option allows you to bring up a substitute list for any one item in the kit.  For example, a customer purchasing a computer system "kit" might want to upgrade to a 21" monitor.  You would select the monitor in the kit edit window and press the substitute key for a list of all monitors, showing stock availability. 
The Retail Solution Rules!
This hot feature allows you to set up package discount options.  For example:  Buy any two items from department ABC, receive a 50% discount on the second item.  It also offers frequent buyer options and the ability to print user-definable forms when specific items are purchased.
More about The Retail Solution Rules 
Discount Codes 
We have added an option to create batches of discount codes.  A discount code can be used to give a percent discount, flat rate amount discount, change the current price level or activate a rule discount (buy 2 get 1 50% off).   Each discount code can have an optional reference code for tracking different advertising methods.  All discount code information is available to our report writer including times used, customer, ticket number, discount amount given and much more!
More about Discount Codes
Membership/Discount Cards!
From the point-of-sale you now have the option of printing a user-definable membership/discount card.  The card can automatically be assigned an optional discount code.  Scanning the card at the lookup code or anytime during the sale will activate the optional discount and recall the customer's information.  More about Membership/Discount Cards
Employee Time Card 
Each Time Card contains employee's  regular, overtime and holiday hours, commission, spiffs and bonus pay for a specific date range.  Total gross pay for salaried employees is also computed.  Multi-Site FTP can automatically transfer Time Cards to a main location for centralized payroll processing.     
Inventory Income Account!
Each inventory account can now have its own unique general ledger income account.
New Employee Commission Option!
Employee commission can now be based on a percent of profit range.  For example:  When profit on an item is 50% the employee receives 10% profit commission.  When profit on the same item is 25%, the employee could receive 5% profit commission.  This feature can be used to motivate employees to sell at a higher profit!
