Product Information


The Forza retail package is a sophisticated 15" touch screen POS system suited for retail convenience stores, newsagents, grocers, delicatessens, farm shops and supermarkets. The system is quick to set-up , fast and very easy to operate, with a full range of point-of-sale functions, stock management and reporting.

The standard Forza retail shop package includes the Sam4s-branded 15" touchscreen terminal, a high-capacity cash drawer, a fast thermal receipt printer, heavy-duty laser barcode scanner and comprehensive Retail POS Software to give you a complete retail business solution.

No Internet Connection Needed - No Monthly / Annual Usage Fees to ever pay. You simply pay once and buy the system outright.

No Internet Required
The system is very fast and secure as it is not a cloud-based system. The POS software app and your data are all stored locally on the POS hardware. Only if you use Integrated Card Payment Processing, the optional Cloud Back Office app and related modules would you require internet just for those features.

Benefits of an Installed System over a Cloud System
With an installed POS system the program application and database are all installed locally on your POS terminal(s). This results in much faster processing time, greater staff productivity, allowing you to serve your customers faster and minimise waiting times during busy periods at your store. There is no reliance on outside web servers, no reliance on internet connectivity, no dependence on internet reliability, signal strength or connection speeds. Furthermore, there is no need to keep paying monthly or annual software fees to use the system. The SamTouch POS software has a lifetime permanent license.

With an installed system, there is no unexpected down-time due to server maintenance or cloud app upgrades. Your POS program and business data are all physically stored at your premises, on your POS equipment, available 24/7 365 days a year, 100% under your control at all times.

SAMPLE SCREEN SHOTS


USER-FRIENDLY SCREENS
For your non-barcoded products, clear colour co-ordinated screens allow the operator to easily choose the required products. There is no limit to the number of screens. Navigation is easy with the menu structure. Staff access can be controlled to managerial and reporting screens.

As the POS software and database are all held local on your terminal, it is much faster than cloud-based systems which rely on internet connectivity and the provider's website availability and they are therefore much slower. The installed system gives you speed, reliability and 100% control over your POS system and data, without relying on outside parties and without the need to make ongoing payments to any cloud system provider.
