On the whole, it is a great product.

Pros

It is loaded with lots of functions with a friendly GUI and Retail Express provides great customer support.

Cons

There are quite a few database functions that show in one format on one page, but a different format on another page. It also needs to be a bit more tailor-able to suit the way we need to operate.

This software is great for a business with multiple locations. It seems to contain a large scale fulfillment section which smaller businesses (such as ours) don't really need. Overall it's been a positive step forward for our business.

Pros

Retail Express is easy to use. The point of sale is simple, yet very clever and allows you lay-by, sell and invoice all in the one transaction. It's search feature is fantastic, letting you view transactions from the day, week or via your own custom dates. We love the ability to email our customer invoices and receipts, saving us both time and money. Working with multiple screens in a web browser is a great bonus for our business.

Cons

Retail Express doesn't really cater to customer orders that well. It categorizes them as lay-by's. It does not enable the customer order to be identified in a purchase order (IE: there is no automatically fulfill mechanism). It's difficult to search for a product and you can't seem to view who the customers are that purchased the product, based on the product.

Pros

Ease of use, Inventory management, POS layout, Back end reports, Integration with 3rd party accounting systems.

Cons

Client order history is available but could be easier to get too and under stand. The product will give you back exactly what you put into it so do your preparation well.

Pros

Very Easy to use and gives us an edge on professionalism and performance internally.
Data is now at the touch of a couple of buttons instead of having to compose the information for days/weeks.

Cons

So many features that I haven't had time to learn them all, this is the only issue I have as it can take quite some time to learn everything.
