    Mike, you and others have given me more information than I ever expected! I thank you. The business in question, as I said at the outset, is very small. There's no shipping. Just one customer gets...

    Good point about the Android OS. I looked very briefly at QuickBooks, but I got the impression that it's a bit more tool than he needs. Now, I hadn't looked at the Home and Business line. Thanks!

    I've looked at Office 365 Business and Business Essentials. Anything more robust would be gross overkill for a business this size. We have not discussed a POS system, but I don't think the owner sees...
