We have just purchased a POS (Point-Of-Sale) register system and are looking
for a touchscreen to go with it (won't get too greasy, I hope!).  It will
have a locked drawer, and the very few who have access will have to log in.
This should take care of the accountability issue.  Should have it up and
running shortly.
