A New Way of Selling

We all realize the overwhelming influence mobile technology is having on our lives. The continued impact of wireless connections has altered the way we shop and sell.

Some retailers are replacing centralized checkouts and letting clerks use tablets and portable computers to complete transactions. Representatives answer customer questions, check stock and finalize sales with handheld devices. Mobile POS solutions are useful in pretty much any field.

Boost Productivity

With mobile point of sale systems, retailers and service companies are helping employees become more productive while lowering labor costs. And because transactions are carried out electronically, instead of written manually, accuracy is increased.

  • Mobile POS solutions are ideal for retail and service companies
  • Increase speed and accuracy of transactions
  • Increase employee productivity, reduce labor costs
  • Make sales anywhere inside your store
  • Make sales off-site including credit card processing
  • Provide enhanced customer service
  • Add a quick checkout in peak periods to shorten lines
Windward's Mobile POS solution works perfect when there isn't a checkout counter in sight

Customer Service Anywhere

No matter where your customers are in the store, mobile POS solutions allow them to receive fast, informative service on the spot. By arming your employees with handheld checkout devices, they’ll expedite the purchasing process.

For service-based businesses, your office might be someone else’s living room. For instance, a carpet cleaning company can use mobile POS software out in the field to complete transactions onsite, offer other services and check account information.

Indoor / Outdoor Retail Environments

Windward's mobile POS solutions works outside of the store too. You can also bring them with you outside, or even on the road. They’re ideal for unique applications such as:

  • Garden centers
  • Field service workers
  • Trade shows
  • Stadiums (food sales, 50/50 tickets etc.)
  • Outdoor sales environments
Create an virtual checkout - Mobile POS is great for handling peak days or busy seasons

Line Busting

Line busting is a term that describes how retailers are using mobile POS solutions to break up the lines that form at checkout counters. If customers are forced to wait too long in a queue, they might become impatient and walk out before completing the transaction. By equipping employees with handheld POS devices, they can carry out transactions anywhere in the store.

Not only can you conduct sales anywhere, you can create error-free, detailed receipts on the spot. If a customer is looking for a stock check or needs additional product information, the employee can access it with the handheld device.

"Windward is a great software system that does A LOT. Fairly intuitive and easy to learn. It has many features that helps keep users organized and on track!" -Christine Williams

We made the switch to Windward System Five from our previous system, Activant​ Dimensions. With our old system, we had a complicated three-part invoice, and we would give the customer one copy. But, now we have the ability to use a modern printer and print actual paper.Now I've had customers regularly say to me, "thank you for giving me something I can actually write on!"A Windward Implementation Specialist was assigned to our business, and we were provided with a dedicated site, which included a custom training curriculum. The Windward Learning Academy videos are fantastic!Switching to Windward System Five has been a very fluid transition.

The business has grown so much that without Windward's software solution, we simply could not function effectively! The software has become our business management foundation.
- Robert Hibbert, GM
We bought Windward 2 years before we implemented it and I wish we would have implemented it sooner because it does a lot better reporting. We were using Quickbooks before and it didn't integrate with our POS... It eliminated additional expenses for us and I think it works really well...
- Shea Miller
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. Every day I can report my deposits, clear all my cash accounts, stay on top of the money. It also gives me the time to focus on researching what our customers are buying, coming up with ways to implement reports, finding price points, and just buy better.

Windward Software's Rental POS Edition has revolutionized the way we do business. It allows us to track the full history of every single item: rentals, repairs, warranty, sale date, owner, etc. If a barcode does not come with the item from the manufacturer, it is easy to generate one using the Windward solution.
- Jim Pedulla
“Windward helps our business in all areas of the operation. Without Windward, it would be like driving in the dark with no headlights.” -Travis Green
- Travis Green
It got people in the store and many people bought more than just the antifreeze; it’s hard to put dollar value on that!
