Summary of RAPS software from Software Clinic

Brief Description (Provided by Vendor)
The Rental And Point-of-sale System software is labeled and known as RAPS. This software program was originally designed to manage rental items within a video store. It has now grown into a powerful application that may be used to manage any rental and retail business where merchandise is hired or sold at point of sale ( pos ) to the public. Raps can also be used by customers on the Internet to browse and rent/ interact with the store in real time. RAPS has many Inventory, statistical, financial, auditing and fraud controlling reports. This software has also been successfully used for audio book, movie, video, game, trailer and dvd rentals, and may be extended to other rental and retail merchandise. Many of our customers have used this software in excess of 17 years. This Software can be fingerprint enabled by the User for customer lookup and authentication. Also note that RAPS is very scaleable where management can add extra workstations, Pole displays, cashdraws, receipt printers, and webcams to capture customer pictures as well as adding a jukebox if required. Please refer to our demo movie buttons found within our web page. These movies have been composed to play on the internet with the computer speakers turned on.
