About ABS Point of Sale

ABS Point of sale is a comprehensive module designed to help a retailer process customer transactions and monitor product inventory levels in single or multiple stores.

The POS module processes sales, layaways, quotes, special deliveries, on-account and layaway payments, and analyzes daily sales and traffic flow.

ABS Point of Sale Is Designed To:

  • Improve customer service levels
  • Manage inventory more cost effectively
  • Provide management with information it needs to monitor profitability

ABS Point of Sale can be used as a stand alone module. It also interfaces with ABS Accounts Receivable, General Ledger and Currency Conversion.

ABS Point of Sale is best used by hardgoods retailers, as well as most cash and carry businesses.

A Remote Processing P.E.P. Pack can be added for retail businesses that operate multiple locations and need to transfer transaction, inventory and customer data between corporate headquarters and satellite stores.

Credit Card Authorization

ABS uses ICVerify, a 3rd-party software product, as its credit card authorization solution.

ICVerify seamlessly integrates with ABS Point of Sale. It is certified by 99% of all U.S. banks and most major credit card processing networks. It can be operated in either real-time or batch processing mode. A modem or some other form of communications with your selected clearinghouse is required.

Reliability Option

The ABS Reliability Option P.E.P. Pack® interfaces with the ABS Point of Sale module.

It provides the retailer with the ability to continue to process and collect sales data and customer information in the event of a network failure. The captured data is saved in a file. When the network is restored, the file can be uploaded from the store’s POS workstations to the network server.

Remote Processing

ABS Remote Processing P.E.P. Pack® interfaces with ABS Point of Sale and Wholesale Distribution.

It lets companies with multiple stores and/or warehouses transfer sales, inventory and receivables data from remote locations to the corporate (hub) processing center, to download data from the hub to satellite locations, and to transfer data between locations.

Remote Processing Transfers Critical Data, Including:

  • Price changes
  • New SKUs
  • Customer file changes
  • Inventory levels
  • Sales transactions
  • Sales tax
