POS 2009 POS Software

The Microsoft POS 2009 has reached end of life. It has been replaced by the CAP Software Cash N Carry.

Microsoft Point of Sale 2009 combines advanced data management with a familiar and user friendly interface to give your business a powerful and quick method for tracking sales, inventory, and more. POS 2009 has been designed to give every employee the best experience possible with role-based functionality. Function buttons, display layout, and even accommodations for left or right-handed employees can be configured, drastically cutting the time necessary to train employees. To further aid the training experience, Point of Sale 2009 matches the look and feel of familiar Microsoft Products such as Office and Windows Vista.

Designed with compatibility in mind, POS 2009 can share data with existing Microsoft business products, giving you greater control over advanced reporting. Integration with Microsoft Word & Excel allow for familiar reporting tools, freeing you from predefined templates that come with other point of sale applications.

Inventory management in POS 2009 is incredibly robust yet easy to use. Powered by Microsoft SQL, Server Reporting Services make it easy to create easy to use reports on the fly. Export options to Excel or Adobe ensure compatibility for whomever receives your reports. Reorder points and replenishment orders can be automated, allowing for precision scheduling and minimizing excess stock in inventory at your business.

OPOS-compatible hardware is supported by Microsoft POS 2009, giving you a wide breadth of potential configurations. For added features, such as multi-channel, mobility, or other retail applications, Microsoft provides an SDK for extended development.
