As its name may suggest, Copper Point of Sale Software is intended to help you in the retail checkout process. In this regard, the program can successfully speed up performing transactions, pricing products, making discounts and printing receipts. Its interface is easy to navigate, but it may require a short training before you can use it fluently.
The program supports entering data through touch-screen terminals and barcode readers, which greatly reduces the time needed as well as the possibilities of entering the wrong code. Likewise, it allows various payment methods, like cash, check and credit cards.
Fortunately, Copper Point of Sale Software lets you configure two types of users according to their roles. Thus, you can have salespeople and administrators with different privileges. For each user, it is possible to specify personal data, like name, email address, and phone number.
To speed up the checkout process, it is essential to enter the data corresponding to the items before generating a receipt. It is great that you can add an unlimited number of items to the database. Each of them is entered along with such details as identifying code, description, price, discount, and tax.
It is very easy to record sales transactions. All you need to do is enter the quantity and the code of each item. Optionally, you can also provide the name of the customer. After that, you can print the receipt and hand it to the buyer. The program also lets you create backups of the database. Moreover, you can generate reports of the transactions in PDF format.
To sum up, I believe Copper will be highly appreciated by small business as it provides an effective means to automate sales. The basic version of this product can be used for non-commercial use at no cost, which does not make much sense to me because a point of sale always has a commercial purpose. Anyway, if you want to access other features, you can purchase the Plus version instead.
