Sell Faster with Touchscreen
Windward Software offers support for touchscreen enabled terminals through user-definable panels and floating windows. Touchscreen functionality is commonly used in order to simplify the Quick Cash interface at point of sale and therefore may not support certain point of sale features or advanced navigation. However, this touchscreen can be fully customizable to fit your business needs accordingly to whatever makes sense to have immediately available at the touch of your finger.
With Windward Software you can create either a global (system wide) or local (i.e. this workstation only) display button layout so that certain key features are displayed in an evidently obvious fasion. Windward Software's touchscreen technology allows you to have the features readily available at your finger tips, literally.
