Point-of-sale Software

Rob has developed POS software designed to drastically simplify a winery's monthly reporting. It takes longer to write the cheques, than to generate the J10s, Ontario wine tax, and Excise reports. The next time you have an LCBO audit, ask the auditor what they think of the software. It's been running in Ontario wineries & cideries since 2007.

The software tracks all winery sales, bottle inventory and bulk inventory.

Extend your subscription (250$/year) for 4 hours of tech/IT support.

Tech/IT support is charged out at 50$/half-hour.

There isn't a penalty for starting with the simpliest solution first. As you grow your sales channels, you can upgrade your version to fit your needs (for the difference between the package pricing). The iPad sales app works in conjunction with the multi-terminal installations.

Why is the pricing so much more affordable that other POS systems? Because, we make our money selling wine, not selling POS software. Being a software engineer has its advantages :)
