Best new features in QuickBooks Point of Sale 2015

QuickBooks Point of Sale Desktop Version 12.0, 2015 offers far more features than the few retroactively added ones in the last version. The updated version is comprehensive, addresses bugs that existed in previous versions, and helps enhance your business – a well rounded, stable, and practically reliable desktop product.

V12 offers practicality and functionality to business owners. There’s a fresh green new logo and many new introductions in V12 that make it more convenient, faster, and user-friendly.

New Multi-Tasking

The multi-tasking function of this version is noticeably better than that in last QuickBooks POS. Although version 11.0 had a similar multi-tasking feature, this version has a lot more capacity. The new version makes it possible for you to easily skip to another window without completing a transaction. The screen will show a Windows menu and a Windows pull-down. You can click on any one of them to select your desired window. If you have opened several windows simultaneously, then you can switch from one to another with Ctl+Tab trick. Sometimes, Ctl+Tab doesn’t work effectively or hang up the screens, which means that some other screen is opened behind QuickBooks Point of Sales 2015. In such a case, try Alt+Tab to display the screen opened behind POS.

Direct Sales Receipt and Voucher Editing

Direct sales receipt and voucher editing are debatably the best features of QuickBooks POS V12. You don’t need to open a separate window to edit in-line vouchers and receipts. Directly click the item to be edited and modify. However, some items including department, item description, and custom fields still require you to click the ‘Edit’ button separately.

Transaction Sorting

An old feature that most users really missed from Version 9.0 is finally back. Now users can simply click the column heading to sort all transaction items in that order. Double click to toggle the items in Ascending or Descending orders. But, the software does not save the transactions in an aligned manner so before printing make sure your item list is structured in your desired order.

New Look and Feel

QuickBooks Point of Sale 2015 has also incorporated a few amazing design modifications. Intuit has designed the new version in light of different screen sizes now used for performing business related tasks. A very light green background in contrast with black and red text makes readability easier. Highlights and color shadings have also been added in rows and columns to improve readability and add some fun into otherwise dry business processes.

Backup and Storage

Your business is expanding and it needs greater backup space. To be able keep up with user needs, QuickBooks POS V12 included up to 4GB storage space.

New Shipping Manager

Also, you may be tired of fixing the Shipping Manager and adjusting item tags for printing. These bugs have also been fixed in V12, allowing you to smoothly perform day to day tasks. A lot of users also used to get annoyed with lag, locked screens, unresponsive windows, and aborted shells while performing really important tasks. Intuit did a good job of identifying and fixing these bugs in V12.

Lightning Fast Speed

Faster speed is obvious in the new version but what’s amazing to know is that QuickBooks POS V12’s startup time is 10x faster than previous versions. All in all, V12 is an inventory management product that promises to work hand in hand with your business, no matter how complex things become!
