[prMac.com] Rockaway, NJ - Werck BV today announced the international release of Checkout 2.0, the total point of sale solution for small to medium sized Mac-based stores. Werck is the joint venture between development studio Sofa and small business-focused MYOB US.
Checkout 2.0 lets retailers process credit cards real-time, create and manage purchase orders, have multi-user access to their store over a network, and integrate their Checkout data with MYOB AccountEdge(R) or Intuit's QuickBooks(R) Pro for Mac. Checkout 2.0 runs on Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later.
"Checkout 2.0 is a powerful Point of Sale system with tons of new customer-requested features, but what's most gratifying is that we were able to improve ease-of-use even further," says Dirk Stoop, Partner, Werck BV. "It's a more mature product, and we stand by our mantra that you can get a Mac, start a store, and be up and running in 15 minutes."
Credit Card Processing:
Checkout 2.0 users can now save time and money by processing credit card payments directly from Checkout. Credit card processing is currently available with an MYOB Merchant Account (available in the US only).
With Store Sharing, Checkout 2.0 users now have the option to share their store, using Checkout with multiple cash registers in the store front, managing their store from their office, and dealing with inventory in the stock room, all at the same time.
Checkout 2.0's Stock Room lets the Checkout user create and manage purchase orders, reorder stock, and oversee all vendor-related business.
"We're happy to introduce Stock Room in Checkout 2.0," says Werck partner Hugo van Heuven. "Having the ability to create purchase orders in Checkout was a big request from our customers."
Works with Mac Accounting Software:
Integration with MYOB AccountEdge and QuickBooks Pro for Mac lets Checkout 2.0 users export journal entries directly into their accounting software.
Checkout 2.0 is immediately available as a free upgrade for all Checkout v1.x customers as a download.
All Checkout customers will now have access to English-language phone support for their customer service and technical support needs. Information on Checkout support plans can be found at their website.
Availability and Pricing:
In the United States and Canada, Checkout 2.0 is sold as MYOB Checkout and will be sold by MYOB US. MYOB Checkout 2.0 is available through Apple resellers, on the web at checkoutapp.com, and other online outlets and mail order catalogs. Internationally, Checkout 2.0 is available from Werck Sales BV.
