Our number one priority is our customers. We strive to provide quality point of sale solutions to a broad range of business types. In order to meet these needs, we look for systems that meet several key factors. They need to be fast, easy to use, and give useful sales information. Finding a solution that has both a robust feature set and doesn’t take a lifetime to master can be tricky. Making sure the system works well for both permanent sales and short-term rentals is another beast entirely. There are thousands of apps out there with more added everyday. We have sifted through the masses, researched the top contenders, tested a dozen or so of those, and settled on a favorite. Our top pick for a retail app is Vend POS. Vend began development in 2010, and has grown into a point of sale power house used in over 20,000 businesses in more than 140 countries.
We are excited to be a part of the Vend certified partner network. If Vend looks like it might be right for your event/business, but you would like some more information, contact us. We would be happy to set up an online demo for you to show you how it works. You can also request a quote for the software and hardware for purchase or event rental.
Vend makes mobile POS beautifully simple and highly functional. Retail and quick-serve businesses rejoice at the user-friendly register interface. Ringing in transactions is fast and easy when taking advantage of these features:
- Add product images
- Organize screen layout
- Color code groups

Automatic Live Updates
We know that even the most carefully planned program can be a work in progress. Vend makes it easy to add products, change prices and modify the screen layout. Add products in bulk by uploading .csv files using a supplied template. Thanks to cloud technology, when changes are made, they are updated automatically on each terminal. Adding items is this system takes less time than stocking the shelf.
Check sales at any time, for any terminal, from anywhere. There is no greater satisfaction than watching your business pull in a profit. Get detailed sales, inventory, or product reports by cashier, register or store. Filter results for extra details broken down by:
- Keyword tags
- Supplier information
- Total transaction amount
- Cost of goods
- Profit margin
Customer Data Tracking
Use customer tracking to gain some extra benefits from your point of sale system. Collect customer data as you make sales, or load a pre-existing list in preparation of an event. Here are some examples of what you can do:
- Track customer buying patterns for marketing opportunities
- Create customer groups to grant special discounts
- Easily verify purchases when performing returns or exchanges
- Set up loyalty points for repeat customers
Being efficient in inventory management has a huge effect on the bottom line. Finding the sweet spot where you keep enough product on hand to satisfy demand, but not having large overstock is key. Vend helps you hone in on that sweet spot with:
- Stock on hand reports
- Product value reports
- Low stock warnings
- Inventory transfers between stores
EMV (Chip Card) Integration
Vend POS makes it easy to keep up with credit card compliance. The system integrates with a number of EMV (chip card) readers. The hardware flexibility lets you accept credit cards securely through whatever connection type you have available, be it hard line Ethernet, WiFi, or cellular. Not sure which type you have access to? American Metro can supply internet connectivity hardware as well.
