Xsilva Unveils LightSpeed 2.5 Point of Sale for Mac

    Next-generation retail solution leverages iPhone and Leopard

    MONTREAL, November 28 /CNW/ - Xsilva Systems, Inc. has released
LightSpeed 2.5, a new version of the popular, easy-to-use Point of Sale (POS)
solution on Mac OS X--with more reasons than ever for retailers and small
businesses to choose Macintosh as their POS platform.

    "With LightSpeed 2.5, Point of Sale on Mac gets even better," said Xsilva
CEO, Dax Dasilva. "Now retailers can view LightSpeed Stats on their iPhone to
get the latest details on sales anywhere, anytime--and use Cover Flow in both
the LightSpeed browser and POS screen to quickly and effortlessly find the
product or customer information they need."

    LightSpeed 2.5 also debuts two highly requested features: Multi-Store
Transfers for moving stock between store locations; and a Label Designer for
custom product label templates.

    LightSpeed 2.5 highlights:

    -- iPhone Stats
        Now retailers can track sales, payments, returns, and invoice
         count for the day, the week, the month or even the year-- with
         LightSpeed Stats on their iPhone. They can also see which
         employees are clocked in at the store, when they started, and how
         much time they've spent on Jobs and Tasks. And contacting an
         employee directly is as easy as tapping their phone number or
         email address.

    -- Cover Flow Interface
        The same Cover Flow interface that makes finding information on
         iTunes and the iPhone fast and fun makes it easy to zero in on
         information in the LightSpeed Browser and on the LightSpeed POS

    -- Multi-Store Transfers
        LightSpeed 2.5 makes it easy to transfer stock from one store's
         database to another and receive stock with ease. Browsing and
         management tools make it easy to review 'transfer in' and
         'transfer out' documents, run reports on inventory 'in transit'
         and export information to accounting software such as QuickBooks.

    -- Label Designer
        Now it's easy to go beyond pre-made product label layouts and
         design your own custom labels. Want a use a different label size?
         Want to import a boutique logo? The new Label Designer provides
         easy-to-use graphical layout tools to create all types of product
