[prMac.com] Dallas, Texas - Have you ever wanted to have all of your employees on the sales floor with your customers? Apple revolutionized the retail industry by doing just that, and now you can too! With effortlessE's new webPOS Mobile iOS app and an optional iPhone/iPod touch webPOS Cradle, you can create sales, scan bar codes, swipe credit cards and have the customer sign on the screen with their finger. Once the sale is complete, you can even email the receipt with the captured signature on it, all from your iPhone or iPod touch.
effortlessE has almost 10 years of experience in providing web based point of sale, in fact we were the first to offer a web based POS in 2003. At the request of clients, prospective clients and business partners alike we have created the first publicly available app to provide the full point of sale terminal in the palm of your hand. And it is compatible with most credit card processing accounts. The app provides full sales functionality including product search, customer search, payments (including credit card processing), email receipts and signature capture accomplished by the customer signing on the device screen with their finger.
All webPOS users get access to the iPhone app with sales reporting, product information and gift card balance (used with our optional gift card system). With the optional advanced access, small businesses can process sales of products that are loaded in their webPOS in real time. This means there is no need to maintain two inventories. There are even a couple of advantages over the Apple retail store solution. First the app and device can be used with an iPhone freeing you to transact sales whenever the phone is connected via a cellular or WiFi connection. Secondly, the app provides physical inventory capabilities, including the ability to scan products using the optional cradle to ensure proper inventory counts without the cost of third party inventory counting firms.
effortlessE believes this app combined with webPOS system can level the playing field for small retail businesses who compete against the large retail chains. With hundreds of businesses downloading the app in the first 72 hours of availability, it seems business owners agree.

Solutions. That is how webPOS was created. As a successful eCommerce solution provider we had a loyal client following using our powerful shopping cart solution. But our loyal clients wanted more! We were asked daily for a solution for the retail "brick and mortar" stores that some of our clients operated. They wanted a web based POS (Point of Sale) or they wanted us to connect with a provider that offered the flexibility and value they enjoyed with us. We approached a number of Point of Sale providers and found them more than willing to connect with our eCommerce solution. The problem with each of these systems included no hardware flexibility, no real time access, limited remote access, working on only one operating system and the forced use of the provider's credit card processing.
