Windward online POS system integrates seamlessly with Windward System Five to ensure that the information that is displayed on your website is current and accurate.

One of the key aspects of Windward E-Commerce inventory management is its ability to display items in a dynamically generated format. This means that the content of webpages is based on the information uploaded directly from you’re your System Five records.
By using dynamically generated webpages your website will always be in sync with your System Five records, reducing errors and improving accuracy. In addition, because website pages are dynamically generated, there’s little need for you to make manual changes to your website inventory.
Let’s say a business sells apparel online and there’s a subcategory for children’s raincoats. The description of one coat in particular lists it as being waterproof with a detachable hood. However, the vendor realizes there’s an inaccuracy in the description because the coat is, in fact, only water resistant and the hood isn’t detachable.
Upon receiving notification of this error, a clerk can go into Windward System Five, make the corresponding changes and upload them into Windward We-Commerce. Although this could have been left for the automatic upload later in the day, it was determined that the change was significant and had to be remedied immediately.
In other words, Windward’s online POS system automatically displays uploaded changes to an item, without having to duplicate the change on the website. This saves you time and ensures your online and offline inventories are accurate and in sync.
