Liquor Store Point of Sale – MicroBiz for Windows

Liquor stores carry a wide variety of hard liquors, distilled and non-distilled beverages, beer and wine along with an assortment of juices, mixes and food items. The best liquor store POS systems support all the requirements for the sale of alcoholic beverages. Given the threat of theft and shrinkage, store owners seek to automate the inventory and purchasing/receiving process. Liquor store owners also want management reporting that helps easily identify slow moving items, best selling products, items below targeted stock levels and store-losses. Top liquor and wine store point of sale systems also include a method to easily identify the age of the customer and support all the regulatory requirements for the sale of alcoholic beverages.
