Designed with your everyday tasks in mind


Windward System Five simplifies record keeping with digital ATF forms and a FFL Electronic Bound Book<br>

Streamlined Point of Sale Processes

With Windward’s gun store software, the in-store transaction process is streamlined with System Five’s easy-to-use POS. The quick sale and customizable touchscreen features make training staff quick and easy. All invoicing is posted to the System Five ledger in real-time, so up-to-date financial information is always available for reporting purposes.

Electronic Bound Book

Keep detailed records of your purchase and sale of firearms, including serial number, make, model etc. Use our FFL Bound Book to quickly generate reports that satisfy the requirements of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Our gun store software even handles inventory that’s been traded in.

ATF Forms

Save customer processing time and reduce the chance of errors by completing the E4473 online using a kiosk. All your customers need to do is complete the required fields. They’ll be prevented from continuing with the form if they enter any questionable information. Your FFL information is loaded and saved into the E4473 for ease of use. Forms can be saved after printing to provide an electronic copy.

Integrated Accounting

Say goodbye to QuickBooks! Windward System Five gun store software allows you to merge your accounting, inventory and point of sale software information into a single database to create a seamless and efficient business management experience.

Serial Number Tracking

Satisfy ATF inquiries for disposition information by simply entering a firearm serial number into the Windward System Five gun store software and the corresponding inventory record will be displayed. Acquisition and disposition information is at your fingertips along with other useful data. It’s so easy that anyone in your company with approved access can look this information up.

Special Orders

Order firearms or specialty items from your vendors and assign them to a specific customer using special orders right from the customer sale inside System Five gun store software. Marking a special order prevents the item from accidentally being sold as regular stock because, when the item arrives, the receiving manager will be notified of the customer who ordered it. This allows you to contact them promptly to complete the transaction and provide an enhanced level of customer service.

Light Manufacturing

Provide identification and assembly of the specific components of your firearms that you process before they can be sold. Adding a grip, holster, engraving and other modifications used to create the finished firearm are recorded using the kits feature in System Five. A kit acts as the bill of materials indicating the individual items and services that went into creating the finished product. Any components that are ‘consumed’ are subtracted from the inventory database to maintain accurate stock levels.

Real customers, real results.

Broadway Wine and Spirits

Prior to [Windward Software] we used a collaboration of 3 different programs. We had TomCash point of sale. We used QuickBooks for our accounts payable. In addition we had PCCharge Payment server for our credit card processing. Just the functionality of all 3 together was terrible. I felt like an IT guy. It would take 3 days per week for me to find out how much cash we had. Since we put in [Windward Software], it just bought me 3 days per week - cleared them right up. Everyday I can report my deposits,…

Appointment Scheduling

Use the built in scheduler to record appointments for firearm gunsmithing. You can also use it to make reservations for your shooting range. Our gun store software lets you record the date, time, customer name, contact information and other notes. Tasks will be shown in an easy-to-view calendar format, helping you stay organized during your busy day.

Gunsmith Tracking

All work completed on a firearm can easily be tracked against the firearm serial number. Services are billed out on an invoice and reports can be generated in bound book format. When firearms come in for gunsmithing, you can set reminders when they are ready to be returned to the customer. All work can be tracked for historic and warranty purposes.

Shooting Range Rentals

Track firearm rentals for your shooting range, with the added convenience of being able to include ammunition sales on the same invoice. Make reservations and monitor return times so that you’re always aware of which firearms are available for rental.

Optional E-Commerce

If you’re looking to broaden your market with online sales, our optional e-commerce module is a worthwhile investment. Orders placed through your website are downloaded into System Five, reducing errors potentially made by hand entering information. Windward’s e-commerce can be set up quickly and easily by selecting from available templates, or by designing your own custom website. You also have the option of using your site simply as an online catalogue for informational purposes only, or providing full e-cart functionality to accept payments online.
