We have asked our software vendor about having separate computers running the Retail Pro software, as we have done so in 2 locations in the past. We are looking to open our new location and would like our stores to be able to have two independent systems not one relying on the other to run. Our vendor, however, has told us this is not possible unless we pay an additional $10,000 per inventory seat/per computer basically to make each computer independent of the other. We just don't have $100,000 dollars laying around to be upgrading our systems to what we want.
If you are a big chain store, I would not recommend Retail Pro unless you have the capital to invest in this program, as it is not cheap to purchase nor is the yearly renewal fee they charge.
We paid thousands of dollars for their yearly registration fee and got nothing for it. Then we were told we needed to go from version 5 to 8 if we wanted support. They made no effort to tell us about bugs or upgrades to the system each year and they are still like that. I can't tell if it's the reseller/support company, Data business systems or if it is Retail Pro. I have called Retail Pro directly to try to get issues resolved and they never got back to me. Gift certificates are very difficult to do, you need to remember to put in a negative when you sell and positive to redeem. I don't understand how over 30,000 companies can use this program. It's good but not great!
