Control and manage your business: Each transaction is recorded, deducted from inventory and noted on the customer account. This allows you to track sales by product by customer. You can track customer purchases, compare specific purchase trends and more. Plan staff shifts with “Sales By Hour” report.

Reporting made easy:
Artisan easily exports accounting data to QuickBooks and Peachtree Accounting. Dozens of built-in reports with numerous options let you analyze sales, inventory and customer activity. Track employee hours with Time Clock option. Custom report services are available for a small fee.

Inventory control/merchandise tags:
Artisan allows you to account for inventory using true average costing. New inventory is easily recorded using either the vendor’s bar code and SKU data or your own.

Artisan automatically creates and prints bar code price tags. We also provide the ability to print shelf tags. You can get just about any size label you desire with your logo, special fonts, custom layouts and more. Some customizations are done as a service for a small fee.

Artisan works with your existing hardware:
Supports electronic cash drawers, bar code readers, and many other POS devices. We support multiple terminals, simultaneous sales per terminal, and a full Multi-Store option.

Don’t have POS hardware yet? We offer a full range of equipment & supplies.

Secure credit card processing:
Use your standalone terminals or upgrade to Integrated Credit Card Processing for quicker transactions and fewer errors. Fully compliant with the latest PA-DSS credit card security standards.

We pride ourselves on service after the sale.
