    Zing was recently sold. My undestanding is that the technology was purchased and the POS will no longer function after approx. 90 days or so. My clients liked the simple and easy interface. While it was lacking in areas, it had tremendous potential.

      We own a small boutique and have been using zing for about 14 months. We were told that a version 2 would be out with many new enhancements in early 2014 and its now almost 2015 with no new version, only a beta version. The current version along with the beta version constantly freezes up and looses connection to the register/printer. The reports are very basic to say the least and offer very little insight into your business. You have to pay a third party $29/month to integrate a gift card/loyalty program and the names aren’t even populated with the card number on the back end. If you plan on using them to syn with Big Commerce, beware. It often doubles and triples the pictures, wrong information is populated to the wrong product and it may take days for items to sync over. This system looked promising in the beginning for its ease of use and flowing style but failed to deliver in the long run. We currently switched to Lightspeed pos for about the same price and you don’t have to pay a third party for a gift card program. Good Luck!

        We like the system. But, I find the reporting to be way lacking. In particular, when I do my book closing each month, there are no inventory reports that allow me to determine my cost of goods sold.

        Kind of important for a small retailer.

            Ziad,

            Zing is a great, simple POS system, so I trust that you’ll find it a good fit for your needs. However, there are many factors to consider. Do you need accounting integration? Do you need it to integrate with a specific credit card processor? Do you need specific inventory management features? These are the types of questions we can answer through our consulting service. If you’re interested, contact us and we’ll get started.
