Fixes past performance problems

Acclivity NYC has launched a new version of Checkout, its Mac point-of-sale software. The v3.5 update introduces the concept of Automatic Printing, which can print receipts and invoices without a print dialog; it will in fact automatically detect receipt printers, and open any cash drawers during transactions. The feature adds store logos to receipts, and prints two receipt copies for credit card payments.

Several new report types are available: Discounts Given, Orders, Performance by Brand, Performance by Tag, Price Exception, Products by Brand, Product by Tag, and Stock Correction. Acclivity meanwhile says it has fixed Order Window performance for users with large amounts of products and invoices and/or who keep the software running continuously for several days. Performance has also been tweaked for the Count Sheet, Tax, and Sales reports, in fact by as much as 30 times in the case of Count Sheet output.

The app has lastly gained support for customer displays; at the moment, just the Logic Controls LT9000 UP and PD3000 UP are compatible. Checkout 3.5 is a free download for existing v3.x owners. A new copy costs at least $499, while a bundle with a cash drawer, barcode scanner and receipt printer is $1,298.
