POS 2.0 vs RMS


E

Elizabeth

I am trying to determine if we need RMS or just POS 2.0. We have one retail
location with 5 stations. We contract out the operation of the retail store
(in visitor center) to a concessionaire that has 15 other locations with
other agencies. They want RMS to integrate all their operations. Should we
pay for RMS, which may or may not be of use for our one location? Any
suggestions would be great. Thanks!!

Elizabeth,

With multiple locations your only option is RMS as MSPOS is currently for single location only.

Also Microsoft recommends a maximum of 5 stations with MSPOS whereas RMS allows for hundreds.

How much control do you want to give the concessionaire? What are they currently using in their other locations? If they are planning to switch, they should be looking at RMS as an option for all locations.

The per lane cost of RMS is not that much higher than the per lane cost
of POS. There is an additional license cost for HQ.

Normally, I would say you need to discuss your requirements with an RMS
Partner/Reseller to figure out if POS is even capable of meeting your
needs (it doesn't support any special item or transaction types for
example).

In this case, you are contracting out the operation of the store. I
can't think of any good reason to ask your vendor NOT to use the system
they prefer and are supporting at other locations. Is it possible to
arrange the contract so that the vendor supplies the hardware and
software as well as the service? If they want to integrate all of their
locations, it really sounds like you are just providing them a space to
operate - all of the systems could be their responsibility.
