A completely integrated software system, b2b is extremely versatile and flexible, making it functional in a wide variety of environments; from small retailers to general sales companies. “Aside from being feature rich, the real key to back-2-basics is its operating system support,” explains Todd Clarke, General Manager, “How many other small retail sales and accounting systems can boast support for Windows, legacy DOS, SCO OpenServer, SCO UnixWare, Sun, and Linux? … None! This is it.” ABOUT BACK-2-BASICS back-2-basics is an all-in-one solution that combines seven key components working together in unison - including Sales Invoicing, Point of Sale, Inventory Management, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Cheque Reconciliation, and General Ledger (with full financial reporting.) Designed primarily for the retailer, b2b turns any PC into the ultimate retail sales tool and accounting system. SEVEN COMPONENTS TAKE CARE OF ALMOST EVERYTHING b2b sets itself apart from other accounting systems with its component based operation chalked full of features and its operating system support. All components work in conjunction with one another reducing errors and double entry issues. Training of cashiers is also minimized with the single screen philosophy for ticket entry. Cashiers can ring up sales, return merchandise, receive merchandise, quote pricing, enter and hold orders, plus a plethora of other options - right from one screen. SYSTEM SUPPORT, OPTIONS, AND PRICING b2b supports bar code scanners, cash drawers, customer display poles, receipt printers, invoice printers, and customizable keyboards making it extremely versatile; many retail stores can easily adapt b2b and benefit from the ease of use and customizable options instantly. b2b is available in either a single user or a 3-user edition and can be run on the following platforms: DOS, Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000, SCO OpenServer, SCO UnixWare, Sun Solaris, and Linux systems. b2b is priced less than comparably equipped systems due to its integrated design - with pricing set at $995.00 Cdn / $675 US for the single user version, or $1,295 Cdn / $875 US for the 3-user edition.
