QuickBooks Point of Sale
New in 2002 was an add-on product directly from Intuit. The product now has since been expanded to include three products: Basic, Pro and a Pro multi-store version. This software is available as a stand alone POS solution or as a front end inventory and cash register program that will interface with QuickBooks Pro 2002 or higher. The software replaces the inventory functionality in QuickBooks so the journal entry adjusts the inventory asset account, not inventory items specifically. To make the conversion as easy as possible, the software is also available bundled with the hardware for the bar code scanning, credit card swiping, and cash drawer.
