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 and by customer. Report on sales trends by product, category, and vendor. Artisan even helps you plan staff shifts with its Sales By Hour report. Train new sales staff in no time!

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 the Time Clock option. Custom report services available for a small fee.

Manage and market to current customers:
You can manage customer relationships because you’ll know what they bought, when they bought it and how much they paid. Your customer data can be easily exported to files for use with email programs and other loyalty services, or print mailing labels directly. No other software program gives you as much power to pull out a simple or complex list of customers based on all kinds of important demographic criteria.

Track trends:
Easily identify your best & worst selling items, set automatic reorder levels for stock items, and discontinue slow sellers.

Inventory control/merchandise tags:
Artisan can print price tags with or w/o bar codes, or print bar code labels for corner samples. You can also get just about any size label you desire, with either “removable” or “permanent” adhesive.

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. Works with Wizard Mat Cutters.
