New Wasp QuickStore Point of Sale RapidStart Helps Smaller Retailers Ramp Up

Plano, Texas (PRESS RELEASE – September 21, 2009) – Should small retailers invest in new point-of-sale (POS) technology in today’s economy, even when consumer spending is lagging and startup money is scarce? Yes, if that technology is affordable and provides rapid payback from better inventory management, improved efficiency and superior customer service.

That’s why Wasp Barcode Technologies has launched QuickStore Point of Saleâ„¢ RapidStart. Available immediately, the solution is designed for retailers that want a full-featured POS solution at a price that does not erode precious startup capital. This complete solution from Wasp includes POS hardware and POS software that is user-friendly and ready to ring up customers – right out of the box. The system retails for $999.

“In today’s marketplace, we are seeing many startup retail businesses that are determined to stretch their initial budgets as far as possible,” said Tom O’Shea, general manager for Wasp. “They want the automation and convenience of a POS system, but can’t afford a huge up-front investment. With QuickStore RapidStart, we are providing a complete solution that meets their requirements for functionality and affordability.”

Early customers are responding well to QuickStore RapidStart’s features and low price point.

“While setting up my new resale store, I was looking for a POS system that had the same type of high-end functionality as national chain stores, but was a lot more affordable,” said Dan Gleason, one of the owners of Rebounds, an upscale resale shop in Sulphur Springs, Texas. “I was pleasantly surprised to find Wasp’s QuickStore RapidStart. All I added was a PC, and the total investment was well within our tight budget. As we grew, we just added components as we needed them.”
