Clear colour co-ordinated screens allow the operator to easily choose the required menu items. There is no limit to the number of screens. Navigation is easy with the menu structure. Staff access can be controlled to managerial and reporting screens.
As the POS software and database are all held local on your terminal, it is much faster than cloud-based systems
which rely on internet connectivity and the provider's website availability and they are therefore much slower. The installed system gives you speed, reliability and 100% control over your POS system and data, without relying on outside parties and without the need to make ongoing payments to any cloud system provider.
LIVE STOCK LEVELS
The 'Count Down' feature allows you to see how many of each item is available, with a trigger level to prompt further cooking / ordering. For example, you may have 8 doughnuts - as each one is sold, the button shows how many are left. If you have set a trigger level, then it will prompt you to prepare more. With networked systems with multiple terminals, each terminal is updated in real-time.

These can also be used for Salad options, Bread types (white / brown / baguette etc), Cooking (Rare / Medium / Well Done), as well as 'No' instructions (eg. No Onions). A Free-Text feature also allows specific instructions to be typed on the touch screen for kitchen tickets.
CONTROL THE SCREEN LAYOUTS
