CounterAct's latest release - 2017

CounterAct’s latest update offers complete Buying Control - now with new YouTube videos

In its latest 2017 Software upgrade (2-6B), Border Merchant Systems has made a number of improvements to CounterAct’s graphical point of sale and customer order screens, to further streamline and improve the order entry process. Border has also launched a brand new series of YouTube videos detailing what is covered in this new issue.


A new chargeable option is the ‘Buying Control Panel’. This is designed to give an overall buying picture for company buyers. CounterAct Software can be set to raise recommended orders automatically overnight where products are required, in addition to supplier orders being raised on a  specified diary basis.

The ‘Buying Control Panel’ shows a list of the recommended orders with relevant information including those already placed that day. It is possible to place orders directly from the list. Orders that include ‘ordered on request product’ or specials are highlighted. Recommended order information can be refreshed throughout the day to keep the information current.      

Other notable improvements include integration of CounterAct with a third party label software called ‘Bar Tender’ which will give users much more flexibility on how they want their labels to look. Border has also added an option for a web based on demand fax service for CounterAct users.   

This new release is available to all CounterAct users and new developments can be viewed via YouTube. (CounterAct upgrades are supplied as part of the customer support contract.)
