Certainly the most frequently asked question of us is not "how long will it take to pay for the software?", but rather "how much does a system cost?".  I can completely understand and appreciate the mentality when there are so many POS software sales people out there pushing their "low monthly fee", without highlighting their features (or lack thereof).  If cost and a spiel from a slick salesman are NOT the most important factors in your evaluation of point of sale software, we have created a calculator just for you!  I'm not saying cost shouldn't be a factor...it most certainly should be a major factor.  However, if you can find a system that can assist in increasing your bottom line; through expense savings and revenue generation; then why pay the "low" monthly fee for something that is no better than a cash register?
