A light-weight POS for Dynamics RMS

RMS Lite is a unique add-on for Dynamics RMS. It is a POS interface which works with the existing installation of Dynamics RMS Store Operations and provides an alternative way of processing retail transactions. RMS Lite is a great solution when it is necessary to open a relief POS lane during the "busy seasons", for ad hoc lane busting, process cash only transactions, and to run a light weight POS terminal at a mobile kiosk, at a tradeshow booth or on the road. Its interface enhancements such as the built-in Catalog View for one-touch sales and the unique Offsite sales mode make RMS Lite flourish in scenarios where the traditional RMS POS won't do for you.

RMS Lite sports an attractive GUI specifically designed in a way that resembles both Dynamics RMS and POS in order to minimize the need for re-training your cashiers. Because RMS Lite is built entirely using the most modern programming technology (.NET & WPF), unlike Dynamics RMS, it’s compatible with existing and future versions of Windows operating systems (including 64-bit). RMS Lite supports RMS versions 1.2, 1.3 and 2.0.X
