KiPoint iPad POS App Released to Make Sales Fast and Easy

Thousand Oaks, CA - August 13, 2012 -Today, KiBiz Systems, Inc. is excited to announce the release of KiPoint POS that works on the iPad using FileMaker Go 12.  KiPoint for iPad is built using the powerful capabilities of FileMaker Go 12 to create a flexible, quick, and feature rich mobile Point of Sale system. This power distinguishes it from most simple iOS POS apps, in that KiPoint allows users to pick from thousands of customers and products to enter orders fast and easily using a Touch Screen, Quick Find or Bar Code Scan interface. 

With KiPoint you can swipe customer credit cards on the iPad, and have them processed with your current merchant account or we can set up a new merchant account for you. Use KiPoint for retail sales, trade show booth sales, restaurant order taking, sales rep field sales, and many more applications. 

Ki System's president, Allen Imbarrato stated: "KiPoint for iPad is a fully customizable system with endless possibilities for any type of business to create a portable POS that fits their business. This is a breakthrough POS system that really takes advantage of the power of the iPad to produce a new way of relating to customer sales." 

Here is what some early adopters of KiPoint have experienced: 

Ralph Quillin, owner of Quillin Leather and Tack in Kentucky and one of the early adopters of KiPoint put it this way, "The cash register as we have known it, is going to be a relic of the past.  Utilizing devices like the iPad with KiPoint are leading the way to an entirely new POS where customers can be served better and easier. FileMaker Go iPad users need to take a look at KiPoint to see what can be done with the amazing capabilities of FileMaker Go." 

Dr. Jon Mendelson, of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Practice, in Cincinnati, OH, is using KiPoint to have his patients take a quick survey to rate their interests for possible procedures or treatments.  Jon says, "KiPoint on the iPad, has given us a powerful tool to not only begin the conversation with our patients, but to also offer treatment options and proposals quickly and easily.  With our 7 iPads using KiPoint in our office, we now have a much faster way to present our patients with a treatment plan and it's possible costs."

Bruce Bruno, of the Oregon Catholic Press, is using KiPoint to go to Trade Shows to make Sales quickly and easily using a bar code scanner and credit card swiper that is attached to the iPad.  Bruce says,  "We have been looking for a tool like this for many years to use at our many Trade Shows.  We are happy to have found KiPoint to use on the iPad.  We have thousands of products, and KiPoint makes it easy for us to quickly find them and process the sale."
