Merchant Wisdom

Small business point of sale app (was seSales).


Developer website: Apokalypse Software Corp.

Merchant Wisdom (was seSales) is a small business point of sale (POS) application that was designed from the ground up exclusively for Apple's Mac OS X. This unique POS system is designed with an efficient keyboard workflow for fast and accurate order processing. It can also track in store credit and utilize PayPal as your credit card clearing house.

Merchant Wisdom can cache all of the credit card transactions and do a bulk submission at the end of the day or week. This permits the business owner to reduce costs that are generally associated with credit card processing, such as those at trade shows or conventions. The POS system also provides standard invoice processing, inventory tracking, purchase order management, and employee hour monitoring. Merchant Wisdom also offers automatic discounts for sales as well as layaways, gift cards and store credit.

Merchant Wisdom represents a completely native Cocoa solution designed exclusively for OS X, with a primary focus of delivering a fast and accurate check-out experience for the end customer. The workflow for invoice processing is streamlined to work completely via keyboard commands or by mouse menus. A cashier can choose the most efficient process, avoiding needless delays while searching through cascading menus to find the correct option for the customer's order.

Merchant Wisdom has very modest hardware requirements. If your Mac is capable of running OS X 10.4 then it is more than sufficient to run Merchant Wisdom smoothly.
