Many times i have been asked by TabShop users to enhance the reporting capabilities of TabShop Point of Sale in order to do some queries, reports or filtering on sales data. Over the last weeks i thought about this issue and came to test several third party reporting and business intelligence tools that are able to import and analyze the raw sales data from our TabShop Point of Sale App. The first software i tested is Tableau, a really powerfull stand alone software tool for analyzing all kinds of available data.You can see a demo video here:
i was able to import the TabShop Invoice CSV Export within minutes and immediately created some interesting charts, such as products by date and time, distribution of products and sell quantity over time. Tableau really is a powerful tool that has enormous potential also in combination with Point of Sale Systems such as TabShop POS.

Many startups, entrepreneurs and small businesses are spending a large amount of their spare budget for operating a cash register system. Most of these systems are built upon old stationary touchscreen hardware that is on the one hand quite expensive and on the other hand quite unflexible. These old point of sale systems do not represent the lean and flexible spirit of todays entrepreneurs and startups. Nowadays small businesses are moving fast, offer high mobility and react flexible on new opportunity.
By offering a complete cash register and stock management system in your pocket TabShop climbed the top position in Google Play Marketplace. TabShop is the leading point of sale system app on Android tablets and smartphones. It allows users to manage their stock and directly checkout the customers invoices. With TabShop entrepreneurs always take their stock information and cashier system with them. So small businesses are always ready to take up great selling opportunities.

As you all may know, also Amazon operates a global marketplace for Android Apps, as their Kindle Fire eBook devices are based on Android OS and are capable of running normal Android Apps too. So for me it was clear that TabShop Point of Sale should also be available through Amazon.
Since today TabShop also successfully received the global Amazon clearance, with all tests and reviews positively passed.
Now you are able to even convert your own eBook Kindle Fire device into a full Point of Sale cashier systems. Amazon has done a great job with offering ebooks and apps on their own Kinde Fire Android device and i think it is a cool device for converting into a retail cashier system.

TabShop version 51 comes with some major improvements and a new possibility to add stock updates directly within the inventory screen. The sorting of items was improved and some extra reports were added within the daily Point of Sale business report.
TabShop the free Android Point of Sale App has just been released in version 35 which adds new features such as Share reports and exports with Google Drive. One of the major new features is an easy Accounting option for keeping a good overview about profits, taxes and costs prices. Additionally a detailed overview about the daily result is shown as well as TabShop offers a revised daily PDF report generation with additional business information. The generation of Profit and Sales charts has been improved, especially the low performance of chart generation was improved significantly. With the new payed feature for setting an Administration password the owner of a shop is now able to secure sensible areas of TabShop POS against unintended changes by employees.
With its over 13.000 downloads, TabShop Android Retail Point of Sale App climbed the top ranking within the Google Play App marketplace within several month and will be improved constantely.
Thanks a lot for all the Bar/Restaurants, Retail Shops, individual Stores or even the owners of Bands who gave a lot of supporting feedback within the last months!
