We use MicroBiz to run our retail store (golf store). This includes everything from the front register, pricing management, payment processing, inventory management and purchasing/receiving. This is our core store management system, and we could not operate without it. We do use QuickBooks Online and MailChimp, and both work well with MicroBiz.
- Ringing up sales (bar code scanning, discounts, returns, holds, voids, split tenders)
- Inventory management, including matrix products
- Reporting (it has many filters and settings to help drill into information)
- Missing a couple helpful features (such as a free loyalty program)
- The formatting on some screens is whacky and the font can be small
- It could be easier to email receipts (need to set this before the transaction)

Suitable for small and mid sized retail businesses. Many features to automate operations (bar code scanning throughout application, auto generate POS based on mix/max, stock look-up).
May not be ideal for large retail stores. Lacks integrations with ERP systems such as SAP or Oracle. Missing some specialty features such as serialized inventory.
We use MicroBiz to run our entire store operations - from the front register to customer management, to inventory management, to purchasing and receiving
- Ring up transactions and take payments
- Manage inventory
- Management Reporting
- Discounts and promotions
- There are no free loyalty solutions
- Better integration with Magento - limited to Magento 1
- Product import tools are flexible but tough to use

Great for retail stores that want to manage inventory. Great for stores that want to have different prices for different types of customers.
