Client Testimonials

We were looking for a complete software solution for our retail gun store. We chose Axis Retail Management as our POS because of the electronic 4473 forms, A&D book, inventory management, and the  integration with our accounting software. In the 2.5 years that we have been using Axis we have been able to significantly increase our sales volume without increasing staff or man hours.
