Microsoft offers a high end POS software called RMS, which stands for Retail Management Software. RMS differs from Microsoft's POS software in a couple different ways. RMS was designed for multi-unit chains and has an option for consolidated control called RMS HQ software. RMS also offers in-house Gift Card where MS POS does not.
RMS sells for about double what MS POS sells for. The MS RMS can also work with a wide range of POS hardware. The Microsoft Retail Mangement System can have integrated credit card and gift card operations.
The CRG's have a couple RMS complete bundles available with hardware from HP. One MS RMS Store Ops bundle includes a touch screen the other RMS POS Bundle features a standard 15" LCD monitor. Both include a 3 year on-site warranty.
