Point of Sale (POS)

Speed up your checkout line and reduce costly errors by using a barcode scanner that plugs directly into your Windward-powered sporting goods software system. It will also greatly improve the speed of checking in received shipments and checking out sold goods. It also significantly reduces the chance of human error, which saves you money.


Add new customers on the fly, design your own invoice forms with our design features, create work orders, pick lists, estimates and much more. Windward’s sporting goods software meets all of your invoicing needs to ensure you're optimizing your cash flow and efficiently running your business.

Inventory Control

Good inventory control is essential to properly running a business. Use seasonal minimum and maximum inventory levels and sales history to purchase effectively and efficiently. If you run out of stock, you lose sales. If you have too much stock, the lack of cash flow will hurt you. Windward System Five sporting goods software makes inventory control easy for you to track and report on, so you’ll always be aware of your stock level.

Purchase Orders

Purchase orders are used to order your inventory, either for replacement purposes or for special customer orders. Windward System Five sporting goods software makes the job simple by bringing all of the information together into one place. For example, while creating a purchase order for a supplier on a specific item, you can simply click a button and check the suggested order levels for all items from that supplier. It's as easy as that.

General Ledger

With Windward System Five's general ledger module, you can reprint an income and expense statement for any month, in any year, at any time. You can also reprint a balance sheet and aged accounts receivable or payables reports. That means no more digging through boxes of files to access information from several years back.

Accounts Receivable

When accounts receivable invoices are entered, they are immediately posted to the customer account, as well as to the aged accounts receivable list. This report shows you who owes you money, how much, and how long it has been outstanding: in the current, 30-day, 60-day and 90-day columns.

Accounts Payable

Posting vendor bills is easy. When you receive inventory, the total amount of the purchase is posted to just one ledger number. The inventory being received is listed and detailed in the purchase order module so there’s no need to duplicate this information, saving you time and reducing the possibility of errors.

Customer Management

Customer information and history is a high priority with Windward’s sporting goods software. Keep track of a customer's name, address, phone number, email address, web addresses, tax codes, price schedules, credit limits, contact names, warning comments, appointments, lookup words, vehicles and other useful bits of important information in the customer file.

Instant Information Access

With Windward’s sporting goods software, your staff works with a customizable point of sale screen that enables them to check prices, availability and stock location instantly.

They'll be able to access complete customer information and quickly process returns, back orders, sales quotes, work orders and layaways. Keep in mind our system has security settings that you, as the business owner, can set to determine what areas each member of your team can access, and what areas are restricted for total peace of mind.

Optional E-Commerce

Our sporting goods software lets you bring your store online quickly and simply (or use your website as an online catalogue if you’re not actually selling online). Windward Software offers flexible templates to use or you can design your own. Any online orders are copied directly into Windward System Five from the online store to reduce errors, and save you time.


With 24/7 phone support, custom technical fixes, onsite training, user conferences and available updates and upgrades, Windward’s sporting goods software module strives to provide a complete support package that grows and changes with your business.
