Think of the advantages your business can realize with a system that automates your in-store transaction processes and integrates point of sale procedures with a built-in accounting package. For businesses that want to reach a wider market, you can bring your store online and start generating sales quickly and simply with Windward Software’s flexible website templates (or design your own). Online orders are copied directly into Windward Software to reduce errors. You can also use your website as an online catalogue and other informational purposes if you don’t intend to conduct sales.

If your business performs in-house service and repair work, Windward's System Five outdoor power equipment software module can handle the entire process. We even offer seamless integration with industry leader PartSmart for diagrams and part listings. Our integrated program also allows you to track past services on items, as well as warranty claims of sold items.
Serial Number Tracking
For many outdoor power equipment companies, inventory control needs to be more detailed and thorough when managing stock levels. This can be achieved by serializing inventory, as it helps businesses:
- Track product through the supply chain
- Manage warranty procedures
- Track repairs
- Reduce fraud
Floor Planning Inventory
No matter which inventory item your business is financing—whether it’s snow blowers, garden tractors or heavy equipment—there are dealers, manufacturers, distributors and suppliers that are looking to become more efficient in their inventory management processes. Windward’s outdoor power equipment software provides the floor planning finance solution to incorporate that efficiency in your business.
Real customers, real results.
