Turn Key Solutions

A Network of Retailers Working Together

A common hurdle retailers face when adopting a new retail solution is entering all of their items into the POS database.  For many years we have provided tools and services that facilitate importing data from excel files, vendor supplied files and other systems.  Now, we've taken it a big step forward.

  

We call it the Community Item Database


It contains universal information collected from participating eRegisterPro users, such as barcode, item description, vendor and vendor sku/style.  This new feature allows users to more-easily add new items to their POS by communicating information to and from the Community Item Database.

  

This will benefit new and existing stores alike, saving users countless hours of data entry!  See more details about how it works below.

Our History

Innovative Computer, LLC is an IBM Business Partner.  Our first applications were rooted in accounts receivable, accounts payable and general ledger, coded in IBM’s System36 programming languages (RPG36, OCL).

As programming languages and system performance evolved, so did our applications.  We migrated to RPG/ILE, IBM’s high-level modern programming language, allowing us to greatly expand our offerings and improve performance.  In 2001 we released eRegister400 to market.  The solution was truly ahead of it’s time… offering our software as a service (aka SaaS) much like the trending Cloud solutions of today.  The “400” was in reference to the IBM AS400 server platform and operating system that the software was developed to run on, now rebranded as IBM i.

Hosting the application centrally reduced the complications of data-polling, and provided real-time access to information across all arms of a retail chain… from the POS to the back-office to the stock room to the traveling executive and so on.

The eRegister400 software suite has been industry proven as reliable, scalable and flexible.  This is in great part due to the trusted platforms that IBM has provided us over the past 35+ years.  

Retailers that are already intimate with native IBM applications (aka “green screen”) will find eRegister400 a perfect fit.  It’s feature-rich and easy to integrate with third party applications.  Source code is available as well, making this an attractive solution for those with unique requirements.

eRegisterPro is the next generation of our POS solution.  It maintains all of the accolades that our native solution eRegister400 has earned while introducing a new graphical interface to enhance the user experience.  This allows us to expand into MPOS (Mobile POS), Kiosks, and industries dealing with non-barcodable items (such as bakeries, fast food, etc..).  It also delivers a much more pleasant user experience; one that requires far less training by means of intuitive navigation.
