From the 2020 reviews of point of sale systems.

AccuPOS is a Windows-based point of sale application well-suited for a variety of niche retail businesses such as restaurants, gift shops, liquor stores, as well as clubs and membership organizations. AccuPOS includes complete integration with both QuickBooks and Sage financial applications for complete front/back office functionality. AccuPOS can only be used on a Windows platform, and its mobile app is only available for Android devices. 

AccuPOS includes a recently updated user interface that provides a more intuitive user experience. In addition, AccuPOS uses its AccuSERVER program to connect all point of sale workstations, even mobile devices, while seamless integration with QuickBooks and Sage accounting applications allows users to access front or back office tasks from a single user interface.

AccuPOS is a scalable application, so users are able to purchase a single terminal application and add additional terminals or workstations as needed. Although AccuPOS recently enhanced its touchscreen capability, the application can still be used with scanners for high volume sales.
