Heartland Retail offers an advanced solution for retail businesses with multiple stores. The back-end management features are particularly strong, making this a system that handles much more than the basic point of sale.
At the time of writing, the rebranding from Springboard is at quite an early stage. This is apparent in the breadth of support material available. As Heartland Retail’s parent company also runs a range of additional brands and a payment provider, the branding is a little confusing. This seems likely to improve in time.
The killer features for many will be the API, the integration options, and the freedom to use a wide-range of third-party hardware. This is a system that can be deeply customized for the most bespoke of retail businesses.
