Updated QuickStore Point of Sale Solutions from Wasp Barcode Technologies Gives Independent Retailers New Efficiencies
Plano, TX (May 8, 2008) – In response to demand from smaller retailers, Wasp Barcode Technologies has updated its complete family of Wasp QuickStore point of sale (POS) solutions. Upgraded Wasp QuickStore POS retail software now offers specialty retailers new opportunities for improved operations, customer service and profitability, while the new Wasp POS hardware system is now USB-based and has been made compliant with OPOS standards.
Designed especially for specialty retailers with one store location, the software can grow to support multi-store locations. Enhancements to QuickStore POS software include improved inventory tracking and the ability to process payments via Payment Processing, Inc. In addition, the Pro and Enterprise versions of the software now enable retailers to e-mail invoices, generate quotes and provide discounts for specific customers.
“For smaller retailers, figuring out which products are selling, deciding how much inventory to keep and managing reorders can be the difference between success and failure,” said Grant Wickes, vice president of marketing for Wasp Barcode Technologies. “With the updates we’ve made to Wasp QuickStore, smaller retailers now can gain the same kinds of efficiencies that larger chains do, with automated inventory tracking and improved customer service capabilities – all at an affordable price.”
Along with the POS software update, Wasp is introducing a new USB-based hardware system. This system provides an ideal platform for Wasp QuickStore POS software and other popular POS software solutions, including Microsoft Dynamics POS and Dynamics RMS retail solutions.
Eliminating the integration and potential support issues of disparate hardware components, the Wasp POS hardware system includes a cash drawer, receipt printer, integrated keyboard with a magnetic stripe credit card reader, pole display, barcode scanner and POS shoe.
The system is USB-based and comes complete with a USB hub to ensure complete connectivity with PCs that have at least one available USB port.
To further heighten the focus on industry standards, this new Wasp POS hardware solution is OPOS compliant. OPOS (OLE for retail POS) standards ensure that hardware devices have a consistent interface for various Windows-based POS applications.
“While our QuickStore POS software is ideal for specialty retailers, we know that there are many other POS software solutions that serve different markets or larger retailers,” Wickes said. “Because our POS hardware system is now OPOS compliant, VARs and resellers that install and maintain other POS software can be assured of getting a complete solution that works together and is backed by one supplier. This is a huge post-sale service burden that the VAR doesn’t have to worry about, since Wasp provides a single point of support for the hardware platform.”
In addition to the complete POS hardware system, Wasp sells individual POS components such as omni-directional scanners, wireless scanners, cash drawers, receipt printers, pole displays and more.
Wasp QuickStore POS software is available in three versions. New customers can purchase the Standard version for $495, Professional for $995 or Enterprise for $2,295. For existing customers, a one-time update can be purchased for $195 for Standard, $295 for Pro or $395 for Enterprise. Existing customers who are currently on a yearly maintenance program will receive the update for free.
The Wasp USB hardware system can be purchased for $1,295, including all cables and the USB hub. Or, customers can choose a total package that includes the QuickStore software and hardware solution starting at $1,495 with Standard software, $1,995 for Professional or $2,995 for Enterprise.
