WordStock offers a complete working environment for retailers

Inventory recordWordStock is a computer-based inventory control and point-of-sale system for retailers, with a particular focus on bookstores.

For 30 years, WordStock has helped stores to manage profitability by reducing investment in inventory and minimizing returns.

From a core inventory control program, i.e., ordering/receiving/selling, we've expanded our offerings to accommodate current practices, such as customer sales tracking and loyalty programs to connectivity to other systems.

In fact, WordStock pioneered many now-standard utilities, such as electronic ordering, real-time vendor sourcing, and electronic title records.

WordStock's versatility lets you run your business the way you want to run it. WordStock's reporting capabilities are unmatched in their unique flexibility and power: if you can describe what you want to know about your business in words, WordStock can help you to see it in a report.

Comprehensive special order, customer, and mail order programs help you to offer first-class customer service to make your store stand apart and to give you a competitive edge.

WordStock has been installed in hundreds of bookstores in 6 countries—in very large stores, as well as very small. WordStock is used in general stores, specialty stores, and multi-store organizations.

We're currently developing a new user interface that takes advantage of web and Internet technology to streamline development while offering a richer user experience. As you look through our web pages, you'll see screenshots of the programs we have in testing.

Throughout our 30 years, we've always strived to provide a comprehensive experience of quality and attention to our customers:

• Quality in the way WordStock has been designed to solve real-world problems;

• Quality in the way WordStock is sold — because there's no “off-the-shelf” store, we take the time to listen to your needs and develop WordStock systems after individual consultations;

• Quality in the way WordStock systems are assembled, in our own offices, by our own technical staff;

• Quality in the installation and training our staff provides in your store;

• Quality in after-sale service through our unique One-Call Support program.

EMV (Chip & PIN) and Wordstock

Wordstock plans to modify our Credit Card Authorizatgion module to fully support EMV by October 15, 2015. We are waiting for further information from the authorization network and bank about the required certification procedure.

Our current development schedule targets completion of EMV certification by the end of July, 2015. This will allow time for installation of new software at all stores who decide to adopt EMV before October, 2015.

To accept EMV payments, you will need to purchase an EMV-capable PIN pad device which we support for each register where you wish to accept EMV payments.
