About DS POS


25 Years of Experience

The original concept for DS POS was conceived in 1989 by founder Rick Warn. Before developing a point of sale software, Rick initially worked in sales for a grocery wholesaler and then in sales for a cash register company. In 1980 Rick purchased his first computer a TRS-80 Color and fell in love with computers and development.

Drawing on his experience in the wholesale industry as well as his experience in the cash register industry, Rick started to develop a computerized "cash register". It was his belief at the time that computers would be the future of point of purchase transactions.

It turns out Rick was right and he developed the original version of DiamondScan point of sale software on the DOS platform. Rick's first installation of his computerized cash register was in 1991. Since then, DiamondScan has undergone various rewrites and upgrades accommodating the latest technological advances in hardware, software, and payments.

Today DiamondScan POS has been optimized for the latest Windows operating systems and SQL database. It has evolved to have an open architecture concept allowing for rapid development and provides it with the flexibility to facilitate easy third party integrations. The latest rewrite of DiamondScan has provided the software with a powerful foundation for its growth in the industry.
