GUIs with style
The platform-independent POS solution provides comprehensive functionality for the point of sale. The POS system with its particularly for the fashion trade developed graphical touch-interfaces is adapted in such a way as to meet the processes in the store perfectly. Focusing on ergonomic aspects the GUI was newly designed adding to its benefits like intuitive handling.
euroSUITE Fashion consists of the modules euroCASH for the store, euroCOMMANDER for the back-office, and euroCONTROL for the head-office. In addition to the POS functionalities such as articles and payment transactions in multiple currencies, the POS system offers a flexible mix and match system, promotion management, the application of discounts and extras, as well as the management of customer loyalty cards.
