All in all it will do what it is designed to do, but missing some really useful features.

Pros: Powerful back office. Inventory management is good. Decent amount of sales information. My list feature is a nice way to do multiple POs. Print tickets feature is nice for printing new price tags on the fly. Multiple SKUs is great for tracking inventory on items you may break up. POS is fairly easy to operate and is probably the easiest part of package to use overall. Remote access capability. Very basic tutorial videos available. Tech support is fairly knowledgeable about how the software works.

Cons: Can be a bit cumbersome navigating the software at times as well as manipulating reports how you need them. Have to call support to get features turned on constantly that should already be pushed out on updates or should've been installed initially. Updates don't come in regularly. Tech support is not really available 24/7. Often times I communicate by e-mail or have to leave a message. Currently am still waiting for some advertised features to be implemented on our system. No auto generate reports. Very tedious doing inventory updates even with scan inventory feature. Journal only available on POS software. Back office displays transactions in unorganized manner (not by time, just date). Missing a lot of POS features as well that could simplify a manager or owners process. No per employee cash logs without letting them see your sales of the day. Only work with certain credit card processors for integration. No coupon module for abuse tracking, auto scanning coupons. Lately seems tech support is getting frustrated with me. This software will simplify some things and complicate others.

Comments: This program has given us the ability to sort through a lot of inventory that is not moving and to keep in stock at all times our fastest movers. We believe it has made a significant difference in our sales. Once learned, it is not a difficult program to use. The staff at MPower is extremely responsive to requests to changes in program reports, etc.

Pros: Purchase orders made easily - I like the fact that I can create a "my list" during the course of the week; add products to it; delete products that we decide not be primary buys for the week; and then "click" it right into a PO with the company who handles the product. Ability to make notes on the PO for the receiving personnel; ability to track movement of a product for ANY given period or day; report of percentage of m/u from all suppliers; ability to report product movement within a department in order to determine which products move faster

Cons: Difficulty in finding a product that might be duplicated with the same Item #. Once found, there is a little bit of difficulty in deleting it from inventory.

The Retail Package is a very user-friendly program that is versatile.

Pros: The vendor is there is help assist in your setup and initial training. If you have problems or questions after the initial training, they are very willing to continue assistance until you have a better understanding.

Cons: So far there is nothing I have found in the program that I do not like. It is very adaptable and versatile to change, when certain circumstances or sales arise that are not in the initial setup.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you provide accurate spreadsheets and data to the team for them to load data into the software for you prior to opening the business. To load it in afterwards is a bit tedious if you have lots of inventory with different data (e.g., wines, liquor, etc). To start with a full setup is much easier than to load as you go along. Let the Help Team help you!

Pros: It's user-friendly. They have good tech support. I'm able to install the back office on multiple devices for remote access.

Cons: I wish there were a faster way to input inventory (e.g., data collector or scanner capabilities for back office).

Recommendations to other buyers: Determine your needs and carefully compare each software's features.
