If you decide to give NCR a shot, use the trial like your day to day operations would require. Keep an eye on inventory numbers and watch to see if they are affected by sales, returns, and transfers!!! A huge headache having to count inventory weekly.

Great for starters!

2016-11-14

I was juggling and running out of time with which POS system to use for my online fashion business. So many options but I don't know why my heart didn't feel right on them. This was my first POS system and it had everything I needed!

Pros

Made us look extremely professional when taking their orders and payments online!

Cons

It may be too much to ask but since it has given me a lot, I've become bold, but essentially to integrate social media like a Facebook shop or instagram

Counter Point POS for the Small Business

2016-10-23

The base reports that come with the system does not even have a simple re-order report that would merely query the min and max and current balance.

Pros

Has a good interface , easy to change the screen design of the touchscreen buttons.

Cons

The contract management and vendor management is almost non-existent.

POS Highway and NCR Counterpoint - Best System for Wineries, Liquor Stores, Wine Tasting, &Wine Club

2017-07-13

Revenue and inventories are adjusted when the wine is shipped or picked up, simplifying the whole process. Importing customer data from a loyalty program is simple, any database that can batch out a CSV or XLS file can be imported into Counterpoint without any hassle or programming Cashiers can update a customer's card on file in under 10 seconds Counterpoint Mobile for off-site events and markets is easy and effective.

Pros

Counterpoint delivered in spades. Importing customer data from a loyalty program is simple as well.

Cons

I would suggest some UI tweaks or touch up because it does look obsolete, but that isn't a reason to judge the functionality and capabilities of the system.

Slow and Lackluster Software

2015-07-02

Pros

Easy access to data stored in databases. Not much else.

It is very slow and doesn't intuitively go from area to area for typing, doesn't have an easy way to search custom things from previous tickets.

The only thing holding us back from 100% integration is CounterPoint's inability to receive tracking numbers back from WorldShip without cumbersome export and import of data, or utilizing a third-party program.

When shopping for software, I realized that the different options available either put POS as priority and accounting side secondary or vice versa. No complete packages satisfies both as priority.

Counterpoint is a Remarkable Product!

2015-06-29

Pros

Our accounting team, retail operations, and our Information Technology team have all had enormous successes with installation, training, reporting, etc.

Cons

Negatives are minimal, seems as if support sometimes is a bit slow in coming, some of the SQL database configurations pose a bit of a challenge, but overall satisfaction remains high.

Given all of the changes occurring with the card payment industry, having someone such as NCR on your side is a "no-brainer" in my opinion. The return on investment is rather immediate, training costs diminish, support needs are minimal, overall management is very easy.

CounterPoint is fine, it handles inventory well, it has lots of options for tracking and managing. If you need a piece of software that's capable of handling more complex transactions, CounterPoint is a good choice if you're willing to put in the time to learn its ins and outs.

However, when they want to charge a monthly fee to have our system mine our data and send us e-mail alerts - I'm referring specifically to their Point of Sale Real-Time Alerts - we feel that's taking advantage of our somewhat locked-in relationship with them.

Still waiting...

2017-04-05

One person told us that there was no way to deduct past payments and still charge full sales tax, but another person suggested we create house accounts to fix the problem.

Pros

The spreadsheets make it easy to update inventory and vendor information.

Cons

We're not sure how to deduct past layaway payments, store credit, and gift certificates and still charge the customer the correct sales tax.

A Review On NCR Counterpoint

2016-04-21

Didn't have a chance to use customer service, so I can't really comment on that.

Pros

NCR Counterpoint is able to keep track of past retail sales tickets and invoices, as well as allowing to reprint past receipts/invoices through various search filters.

Cons

NCR Counterpoint also closes the Ticket Query/Entry window automatically after making and order or quote, it would be better if it stayed open so you can quickly jump to the next ticket without having to retype your password all the time.
