release of Checkout 2.0, the total point of sale solution for small to

Checkout 2.0 lets retailers process credit cards real-time, create and

Intuit’s QuickBooks Pro for Mac. Checkout 2.0 runs on Mac OS X 10.4.10 or
“Checkout 2.0 is a powerful Point of Sale system with tons of new
customer-requested features, but what’s most gratifying is that we were
able to improve ease-of-use even further,” says Dirk Stoop, Partner, Werck
BV. “It’s a more mature product, and we stand by our mantra that you can
get a Mac, start a store, and be up and running in 15 minutes.”
Credit Card Processing
Checkout 2.0 users can now save time and money by processing credit card
payments directly from Checkout. Credit card processing is currently
available with an MYOB Merchant Account (available in the US only).
With Store Sharing, Checkout 2.0 users now have the option to share their
store, using Checkout with multiple cash registers in the store front,
managing their store from their office, and dealing with inventory in the
stock room, all at the same time.
Checkout 2.0’s Stock Room lets the Checkout user create and manage purchase
orders, reorder stock, and oversee all vendor-related business.
“We’re happy to introduce Stock Room in Checkout 2.0,” says Werck partner
Hugo van Heuven. “Having the ability to create purchase orders in Checkout
was a big request from our customers.”
