“Info Touch software has greatly enhanced our retail business. It brought our company into this century. Prior to Info Touch, we did all of our transactions on old fashioned cash registers. We had no ability to track customer purchases or to offer any kind of loyalty program that would be easy to manage. The other benefit is that our employees don't have to guess at prices, everything is in the system and they know how to easily get the correct price. I would highly recommend Info Touch software, best price, best customer service, best software.”Mary – Sweet Celebrations
