I have recently realized Point of Sale/POS system, is a very broad term. After doing some research I realize I'm not sure what GP is capable of and what to expect from a POS system. Can someone help shed some light on both for me? Your experience and suggestions are appreciated.
We have a small business in a remote location that has a sign in sheet (yes, on paper) where transaction data is mostly recorded. That data is deciphered and typed up in an Excel spreadsheet at the remote location every few days to weekly, tied out to deposits as much as possible then forwarded to corporate. Once at corporate, some more spreadsheet changes are made then imported into an in-house built system. The in-house system uses some data from GP to prepare invoice and GL transactions. This system integrates with GP. Cash and check deposits are made, invoices mailed out. It's a very loose and work intensive process. Below are some high level requirements for a POS system.
We are currently on GP 2015 with plans to upgrade to GP 2018 R2 or newer later this year. What can/should we do in GP vs. 3rd party system? Is there any chance we'll find a vendor to help with all of this? Vendor responses are welcome.
Thank you for your time,
