PC America Cash Register Express (CRE) retail software provides a versatile and adaptable solution for a wide variety of retail businesses. From single convenience stores to large scale chains, CRE has the tools necessary to save you time and money. CRE's SQL-driven database provides advanced and automated tracking of inventory values, employee hours, sales reporting, and more, allowing you to focus on customer service instead of clerical work. Available as a Lite or Pro edition, CRE has a version that meets your needs while maintaining affordability.

CRE Lite: Ideal for single-station point of sale, CRE Lite offers the main features needed for day-to-day retail operations. Employee tracking features let you better manage your staff, including time clocks and multiple cash drawer support. Back office features, including QuickBooks integration, inventory/management reports, and financial summaries speed after hours reporting and give you the best info on which to make business decisions.

CRE Pro: CRE Pro improves on the features of CRE Lite, allowing you to expand to multiple checkout stations and offering additional features and capabilities. With customer tracking in CRE Pro, you can create a customer loyalty program, offering discounts to regular customers and encouraging repeat sales.

Reviewed by: Pam of Wisconsin on 4/24/2013

Purchased: Cash Register Express Lite (Single User ONLY - Download ONLY) (Requires Support Contract)

Liked: lots of functions, more than I can use

Did not like: hard to get used to. Term are different than what I would call things.

Additional Info: This program is great for POS. I had a bit of difficulty setting different things up and the support is nearly impossible to get a hold of, even though they say 24 hour support. They fixed an error with my printer, and then it started malfunctioning again, but it takes so long to contact support, it still doesnt work right. When it does work, it is very useful. Some functions dont work like they are supposed to and the help manuals are not the greatest, but if you can work with it and figur

POSGuys Comments: PC America offers 24/7 support, but we also offer support directly from POSGuys.com during our normal business hours as we understand that sometimes the manufacturer can be difficult to work with.
