Brief Description (Provided by Vendor)
SpeedyPOS helps you run your business by turning your everyday computer into a cash register. Created by the developers of Windward System Five, SpeedyPOS is made for retail stores that require Simple Point of Sale, Inventory Control and Accounting Software at a reasonable price. It even hosts your website and allows you to easily send targeted marketing e-mails to your customers.

Since 1984, Windward Software has been helping small to medium sized businesses gain control by providing an easy to use, fully integrated, real time, inventory control, point of sale and accounting packages.

At Windward, we help you run your business instead of just reporting on it. We believe that increasing efficiency will save you time and money, so why not apply that to all aspects of your business?

We don't just write software. We believe in looking at the business problem and finding the best way to solve it, through the eyes of the entrepreneur. So instead of just developing just another POS software program - We Windward-ized it.

We are specialists in inventory control, point of sale, invoicing, and accounting systems for many different types of businesses. The Windward difference is in our integration. Every aspect of SpeedyPOS is fully integrated - meaning you get real time transactions and reporting - from accounts receivable, inventory and sales reports, to current stock levels automatically listed on your e-commerce site, to having e-mails instantly sent when customers buys a specific product or have a birthday.

SpeedyPOS is a subset of our enterprise business management software, Windward System Five, taking the best features meant for simple retail and packaging them together in a fast, simple, easy to use, but still powerful solution.

"Our goal is to make this software easy and fast to learn. We do this with Windows technology for point and click operation while still employing keyboards, bar code scanners, macro keyboards, weigh scales and other time saving point of sale hardware devices"

As technology progresses, Windward Software has kept ahead of the times, incorporating fully integrated e-commerce shopping cart software and integrated e-mail marketing with our POS programs.
