BatchLine POS is the only stock management system in the industry to be run solely for the benefit of BA members. It has direct ordering facilities to the UK and Ireland's leading suppliers; a sophisticated GBP–Euro currency convertor; an analysis tool that lets you collate and extract your bookshop data, direct links with NBTs and Dojo, and much more. Subs begin at around £11 a week for a single installation with no upfront costs except the kit. Click on the flyer for more information, then contact us for a chat with a current user or a demo with a BatchLine technician.

“I love using BatchLine. It’s an incredibly user-friendly way of replenishing from sales and its reports are a mine of information. The support team are great, too.” Tom Rowley, Backstory, Balham
