The Client Database
A client database contains your customer's names, addresses and purchase histories. It keeps useful information about each customer that can help you with marketing and sales management. Some features of the client database are:
Fast - Lets you find a customer fast using a name, phone number, or a point-and-shoot pick list.
Informative - Shows you who bought what, when, for how much, how they paid, and who sold it to them.
Complete - Lets you keep notes on individual customers and even a photo if you wish.
Accurate - Creates accurately targeted mailing lists for special promotions or even product recalls.
Attracting a new customer costs much more than keeping an old one. This is why Retail Plus is geared towards improving customer relations. Mailings can be targeted using any aspect of the customer's purchase history which generates a much larger response than non-targeted mailings. There are many ways you can use the system's customer data to increase sales volume. In addition to the purchase history client database can also include memos for recording of any key information about a customer.

Flexible - Auto-generate purchase orders using a variety of calculation methods.
Current - Get up-to-the-minute reports for sales, inventory, low stock, over stock, and on-order items.

Security refers to two different things:
1 - The ability to limit access to information or program functions. This is used to make sure that staff cannot make unauthorized transactions or see confidential information. Each employee is assigned a password to determine their access level.
Some of the Retail Plus password features are:
- Passwords determine the functions a person can use.
- All sales transactions are logged with the date, time and name of the sales person.
- Optional requirement for a manager's password before the system will void a sale.
- A training mode, in which all POS functions can be used but no data is saved.
- Password prompts that can be turned off.
2 - The ability to roll back (restore) your data to a previously saved version. This is used to undo the results of serious errors. For example, say you delete twenty invoices and then discover that they were the wrong twenty. Everyone who works with computers has days like that (bar none). An easy way out can avoid big headaches.
The Retail Plus rollback features are:
- Selective roll back - the user can choose sales, inventory, client or invoice data.
- Selective or batch backup - back up selected files or do them all in a at once.
- Automatic warning if your disk space runs low.
