    Question Cash Register Software for Mac?
    Long story short, I'm trying to get the store I work at to change its systems from Windows-based to Mac-based. It's a pretty unrealistic goal and I highly doubt it'll ever happen, but I was wondering what kinds of Cash Register Software was available for Mac?

    I know StretchR helped set up a vet's office (where he works) to Macs so maybe he knows.

    the mac store uses mac's as their POS... ask them!
    She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
    and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
    Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

    While you have good intentions its horribly unfeasible.

    The POS system at my store is a P2-300 that we've been using for 4 years. Right now its worth about 10$.... try finding a 10$ mac.

    Ideally what you want is a Linux/Windows centralized server that will house your Dbase and have your client POS systems read the Dbase from the server.

    My setup at work is as follows....

    1 POS
    1 "service" computer (checking computers in/out of the service ctr)
    1 Server

    The server is an IBM netfinity dual P3-1000 with 5x36GB SCSI drives in raid5. all of the clients are garbage p2/p3 boxes. if you really really really wanna go mac you could buy a mac pro and use that as a server using SMB shares to your windows POS terminals.

    Nomatter which way you slice it, its going to be cheaper to use P3 based PC clients and MABY, MABY a mac server, but you can pick up a cheap P3 based Raid 5 server is a alot cheaper than a mac pro.

    We use a specially designed package for Filemaker Pro for all records and invoices at the vet's office. So that won't be any help for you, sorry.
