Windward System Five point-of-sale software includes all the capabilities one expects in a retail management software package. Designed for independent retailers, this POS software system provides modules for cash sales, bar code scanning, inventory management, customer data input, layaways, account payments and billing, credits and returns and work orders. Windward System Five offers flexibility when generating invoices and receipts, including customized layouts; the ability to edit, correct and reprint; automated inclusion of appropriate taxes; and discounting, both on an entire order or on a single line item. This point-of-sale system is highly flexible and uses a number of “soft switches” that enable Windward to offer customized installations for a wide array of specialties in the retail industry. Additionally, a mobile app for Android devices is available, enabling users to conduct transactions in the field. Maintenance packages, training videos, and live support are also available.
