Point of Sale (PoS) Server Modification Guidelines
If you are going to be switching to a new PoS vendor or upgrading your PoS to a newer database technology (i.e. moving from an Access to a SQL database), your new software provider MUST transfer service history from the previous PoS. Then, please submit a ticket once the new PoS is in place so that we can begin the re-installation. A change in PoS software will always result in a 3-5 day re-installation process and a subsequent $250 setup fee.
But wait, the change of SERVER fee can be avoided!
In order to avoid the setup fee, make sure to have the new computer name exactly match the original PoS server name. If the new server name matches the original name, then our setup process is much simpler and we can have your shop back up and running within the same day!
