									What Are the Primary Differences Between Liberty 2002 and Liberty4 Consignment?

Liberty 2002 and Liberty4 Consignment from Resaleworld come from the same core. This makes it very
easy for users to migrate from Liberty 2002 to Liberty4 Consignment. One doesn't have to convert, just
install the update. Many of the screens follow a similar layout, so you and your employees won't have to
learn a completely new program.

Liberty4 Consignment brings with it many new features. Also, Liberty 2002 is a closed product, so there
won't be any new updates. This means, any bugs/issues in Liberty 2002, will remain.

This thread will compare some of the major areas of Liberty - e.g. Point of Sale, Item Entry, Reports, etc.
We'll also show some of the key differences between the two products.

While the POS modules are very similar (making it easy for new users to pickup), the newer POS module
is much easier to use. There are fewer clicks to get to payment types, which makes completing a sale
even quicker. The new POS module also offers Gift Card tracking, the ability to void a sale, Pole Display
support, customer rewards and much, much more!

Key differences:

 - Payment buttons for credit cards, store credit and gift cards/certs are on the home screen. You no
longer have to click Other to get to those payment types.

- The newer POS module is laid out in a more intuitive fashion, almost like a receipt. On the left is a list
of items you've entered, just beneath that are payments and then finally, the totals. Across the right,
one scans/enters items at the top, enters payments just below and then Finish is at the bottom.

- The number pad isn't on the screen all the time. One can show/hide the number pad and even drag it
around to different areas on the screen.

Entering consignments, outright purchases and/or retail items is something you'll spend quite a bit of
time doing in Liberty. We've made some great improvements to the Item Editor screen, though it retains
the same layout and flow as Liberty 2002.

Key differences:

 - Brand is no longer to the right of the Category field. Specifically, Brands are now Attributes. This
provides greater flexibility over which brands are assigned to which Categories. Some stores sell a wide
variety of goods - e.g. women's apparel, men's apparel, electronics, etc. The idea is, a store doesn't want
to see Sony in the same brand list as they see DKNY.

- The Item Editor is less cluttered. Now, one can hide fields that aren't used. This makes for a much
easier to understand item entry process. Less fields means less confusion - great for new employees!

- There is a new F3 Extended Description, utilized for entering full HTML descriptions for items that will
be published to the Web.
