Since 1982, Canada-based Aralco has developed and offered customizable ecommerce, Point of Sale and Retail Inventory Management systems that help retailers of all sizes gain complete control over their sales operations and inventory, while also empowering staff on the front end with an easy-to-use POS solution. Aralco Inventory Management and POS Systems were designed to support a variety of verticals, and the robust and user-friendly technology fully integrates store front and back-office operations.
Aralco's Point of Sale solution combines the features and functionality of a reliable retail solution with cutting-edge, seamlessly integrated e-commerce technologies, giving retailers the ability to link their web stores, in-store terminals, and back-office accounting to gain real-time insights into their inventory and other critical information.
Aralco recognizes that retailers in today's competitive market need to thrive online as well as in store, so they set themselves apart by offering a powerful e-commerce and website management module built right into the software. These features allow retailers to create, expand, and optimize their online presence, which is critical for business growth.
Aralco POS can track, store, and analyze a multitude of different data types - products, inventory, sales analyses, multiple store locations, inventory, staff performance - and present this information in real-time to management, so it's a great option for owners with more than one location looking to grow. The software can flex to meet the needs of dozens of retail verticals, including apparel, furniture, health and personal care, hospitality, grocery, optical, jewelry, and more. Aralco supports clients at every stage, from hardware and software purchase to implementation, staff training, and support.

We have stores in both the United States and Canada, and all 5 stores use the system, as well as our head office, warehouse, and manufacturing facility. The Aralco POS and BOS modules have provided us with a needed tool to control inventory, manage customer demand and get control of our costs and profitability.
I like the Aralco software, and I have recommended this system.
I would recommend Aralco to any small-to-medium-sized retailer who is looking for a solution that will meet and deliver immediate results.

The POS is very easy to learn, especially for first time users. I like the fact that it is a Canadian company based in BC. I also like that you can get through to a real person on the help line quite quickly. Also, most of the Aralco staff have been there for quite a few years so they are very familiar with all aspects of the software and can help very quickly.
Sometimes updates have a few minor bugs but they are generally fixed right away.
I have been using Aralco retail software since 1993 and have recommended it to many others. I have seen many retail software companies come and go, and Aralco is still here for the long term.
The software is user-friendly and reasonably priced. It has all the features needed to run a single store or a multi-store chain. I am excited about their new e-commerce integration with the Back Office software. I plan to implement this in 2014.

The reporting. Many systems have ease of use on the front end, but few can really deliver on the back end. The owner of this product is very passionate about making his customers happy and constantly adapts the program offerings to suit current retail conditions.
It would be nice if the support was less expensive. Having said that, I have learned that you get what you pay for. I had several systems before this one, and without the proper support, you pay in labour costs and the inability to make timely decisions.
Know what information you need in order to make your business the best it can be. Look for the types of reports that you need or the customer segmentation or the help in purchasing. The right system will save you time and money in all of these areas. Make sure that the proper support is there
