Poynt users of all sizes will have a couple of decisions to make in deciding if Register or Skycraft POS best meets their needs.  This post will help navigate the waters and simplify the decision.

Both apps have the ability to create user pages to easily layout items making them easy to find, and both also support line item and order level discounts, coupons and fees, as well as the ability to set tax levels based on the item.
