We have a number of customers who run specialist food stores/wine stores and RMS works very well for them in all aspects- POS, back office functions like PO's, stock control, goods inwards, reporting etc. I guess it depends on what kind of inventory your're talking about as thats where the work might come in. Most of our guys have less than 5000 items and many of them were able to export data from other systems and we then prepared it for import to RMS. That saved a lot of time in terms of database build. Many of them are using scales and weights and everything works fine. Hope that helps.

I have a mini supermarket and a convenience store in northern california. We have over 60k items in the database. Staff loves the system because it is microsoft and familiar to them. Inventory control is difficult at this level unless you have one person receiving. I am unaware of other systems and their problems or strengths, but we are happy with our current situation. arik

In reality all supermarkets have this problem and with the best effort in the world a hard area to control. If you have 10 items of which 5 expire in 3 weeks and 5 expire in 4 weeks I know which one my wife buys. She will go for the one expiring in 4 weeks even though she will use it today. So since you cannot control what people buy you have to do manual verification of all potential expiry items if not daily very often. We have an add-on for lot control and expiry used for Pharmacy. We also print new price labels that has barcode of item and lot number that way as we sell we reduce specific lots and know who much is left of which lot. If you want more info contact me

Yes you can use it. In fact we have a restaurant client here in the Philippines who are using it. Actually we also carrying Aloha POS both for quick service and fine dinning. The only disadvantage of using RMS is that you are limited to item inventory level.

If in your supermarket you will sell items with differentiated price, for example you have 10 items of which 5 expire in 3 weeks and 5 expire in 4 weeks. Price per: - 5 item in 3 weeks = 1$ - 5 expire in 4 weeks = 0.95 $ Needs some changes, but result is good!
But for this needs to have people, which will play this role and change price-labels!!
