LightSpeed sales system adds touch screen

Xsilva Systems on Wednesday demonstrated an updated version of its LightSpeed 2.5 touchscreen-enabled point of sale software at Macworld Expo in San Francisco.

The new version, which will be released in late January, is compatible with touchscreen-equipped Macs and Apple devices such as the iPhone as well as Cinema Displays modified by TrollTouch. An updated version version of LightSpeed, slated to ship in February, will allow users to park transactions on the point of sale unit and view the files later via a Mac OS X 10.5 ("Leopard") Cover Flow view as well as allow users to browse documents to settle unpaid balances, initiate returns and reprint receipts.

"We recently released LightSpeed 2.5, which leveraged Leopard and iPhone to bring Point of Sale on the Mac to an exciting new level," said Xsilva CEO, Dax Dasilva. "Now we're taking advantage of touchscreen technology to simplify retail sales in the LightSpeed browser and POS screen, and by expanding LightSpeed's use of Cover Flow."

LightSpeed 2.5 is available as a 30 day downloadable demo from the Xsilva web site’s downloads section.

The program retails for for a range of prices depending on subscription length and number of licenses purchased and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to install and run.
