4-Shop SC is aimed at the outlet that needs a multi terminal point of sale solution. Just input your stock and use it to process sales, track inventory, print receipts, invoices and barcodes.
It has been specifically designed for ease of use. It is straightforward for your staff and you have a business overview at a glance.
The software may be used as a stand alone point of sale solution, alternatively up to five client programs can be used with it in the same workgroup as a multi lane solution. The client setup just requires the name of the computer on which the 4-Shop SC is installed (Client, Utilities menu, Server).
4-Shop SC requires Windows 10, 8 or 7, Professional. The client, Windows XP or later, Home or Professional.
The price includes a lifetime single server license. The client is a freely distributable component. The latest client installer may always be downloaded from the link above. Clients can be added or removed from the network as required. Upto five clients may be active on a network.
The trial download is a compact Microsoft installer file about 1MB. It does not require registration or install any advertising.

The server contains the database with no inventory information held on the clients. The server client design is an advance on the standard file sharing methods and requires far less data be transferred over the network.
The client setup just requires the download and install from the link above, and the name of the computer on which the 4-Shop SC server is installed (Client, Utilities menu, Server). The client program is essentially a dumb terminal that can be added or removed from computers as required.
The product requires a standard Microsoft 'Workgroup' network. The shareware versions may be used to check connectivity. Typically to connect two computers all that may be required is to plug the network cables into the same ADSL router. It is not necessary for the internet to be connected.
The product is designed for use on a LAN and uses the robust Microsoft RPC technology. Please note that using the server over an internet WAN is not a supported topology.
The client program offers the common point of sale functions and as no local database is maintained requires minimal maintenance. It takes all but a few local settings (printer, till) from the server. The 4-Shop SC file structure is identical to that of our standard 4-Shop permitting a straightforward upgrade path.
The server and client may be run on the same computer for evaluation purposes.
