Retail Pro POS Review

This locally-installed software is highly capable and customizable, and recent updates have modernized it with some web-based options, but this POS model is dying out.

    We are using Retail Pro Version 9.4 on a Windows 10 operating system Dell Optiplex 5050 8GB ram
    and 1TB HDD.

    The system is so slow loading the program and the Report is same. We have run the Re index and rebuild
    tools

    Is there anybody else facing the same kind of problem or can anybody suggest any solution.

    We were very happy with Rpro 8.65 but decided it was time to move to version 9. Made move to 9.4 in July of 2018 . Probably worst decision I have ever made. The Oracle based 9.4 is unbelievably slow. Back office task which would take a few clicks in version 8 now seem to take for ever. Next to zero in R9 reporting. In order to get decent reporting you have to by a third person plugin and run Crystal. My Rpro dealer has been great but this has been a huge step back. I did not do my homework and therefore paying a heavy price.
