    We use Quickbooks Premier hosted through Rightworks Network. It tracks customers, estimates, sales orders, invoices, inventory, etc. We have been pleased with it and several youtube videos out there to help you out when you get in a pinch with Quickbooks since many use it. Hope this helps!

    We use Quickbooks Pro. I doubt you need a true POS system unless you are running a lot higher transaction volume than the average sign shop. Quickbooks Pro desktop version, to be more specific, is what we use. I do not have any need for cloud versions of such important software. I prefer to maintain my own computer and backup for accounting. And we have no need for mobile accounting/sales on a phone or tablet because we work from a building.

    We've looked at all sorts of order systems and most are unnecessarily complex for our 4 person shop. Best of them was Casper which is available as web-based or hosted locally. We use Quickbooks Pro (subscription) desktop for Invoicing/accounting and payroll and Outlook tasks (color code categories for quote/pending/order/production/install/invoice etc.synched with Companionlink on three networked pcs) for scheduling/tracking orders. Works fine for now as we do fewer/ larger projects than our competition and not a lot of smaller transactions which would require something more designed to handle a lot of individual transactions. You could also use tasks via office 365 subscription for a web-based work-around.

    We use QB Point of Sale for our POS system, but we also do some retail sales and are a print/copy shop. Then the data is dumped to QB Desktop for our bookkeeper to handle all the invoice and such.

    We're currently trying out Authorize.net mPOS on a tablet for our counter. Doesn't track inventory but you can add standard products and services. It can be automated to update Quickbooks, but we do it manually. It's "free" if you have an Authorize.net account which we have through our merchant service provider. We get the money next day, which is convenient.

    Quickbooks until your accounting staff recommends something different, at which time you won't care as long as the job gets done.
