Cash Register Express POS Software

PCAmerica Authorized Reseller

PC America Cash Register Express (CRE) retail software provides a versatile and adaptable solution for a wide variety of retail businesses. From single convenience stores to large scale chains, CRE has the tools necessary to save you time and money. CRE's SQL-driven database provides advanced and automated tracking of inventory values, employee hours, sales reporting, and more, allowing you to focus on customer service instead of clerical work.

Ideal for single-station point of sale, CRE offers the main features needed for day-to-day retail operations. Employee tracking allows you easier staff management, including time punches and multiple cash drawer support. Back office functions, including QuickBooks integration (CRE Enterprise Version Only), inventory/management reports, and financial summaries, speed after hours reporting giving you the most pertinent information on which to make sound business decisions. In addition, with your current service contract, PC America offers OnCloud portal that allows you to view your sales on your mobile device.

For franchise or multi store users, Cash Register Express Enterprise version would be the optimal choice. Enterprise offers robust reporting needed to effectively and easily managing multiple locations as well as inventory management that can track inventory movement chain wide.

Now added on to every license purchase is SaaSurance! SaaSurance provides software upgrades and updates along with bug fixes so your software always meets the ever changing security requirements. You will be billed $20 every month for this service if you do not have a current technical support contract. Cash Register Express has informed us, that if you should decline SaaSurance with the $20/month charge, you must purchase a new PC America Cash Register Express license in order to get future software updates. SaaSurance is not technical support. For the best care and performance of your software license we will always suggest a Technical Support contract that can be billed annually or monthly. Technical Support contracts offer you SaaSurance, 24/7 software technical support as well as all software updates, bug fixes and upgrades. For more information please see "What is SaaSurance for PC America's Cash Register Express Retail Software?" in our FAQ tab.

CRE Monthly Support Contract subscriptions are now available. Please note that all subscriptions require a 36 month commitment and will be automatically billed monthly. If you cancel your monthly support contract before 360 months, you will be inelligible to purchase another monthly contract, and only able to purchase an annual contract.

    Is Cash Register Express EMV Ready?
    Yes, although you must have a Heartland Credit Card Processing Account as they are the only merchant services provider that PC America has integrated into their software at this time.

    You can be EMV compliant without integration with your software if you purchase a stand-alone EMV Ready payment terminal found here POSGuys Payment Terminals.

One-Time Purchase and Recurring Monthly Billing Options are Available. Please see Options for pricing.
