POS, Culinary, Chef & Restaurant Software

A whole range of pos and epos systems for use across a variety
of applications including labelling, receipting and ticketing.

What is POS Software? Pos Stands for point of sale. Point of sale software can handle all of the transactions that are made through your computer (cash drawer). You enter in the selling price and the amount sold and it will calculate the total, including tax. It will also tell you how much change to give.

Since it can keep track of all of your transactions, you can go back and reprint a receipt hours later.

Not all pos software is the same. You will need to do your research, and get advice from other restaurant operators, accountants and restaurant consultants as to the best program for your restaurant business.

If you are short on start-up cash check, Halo gives restaurateurs and retailers the tools, information and knowledge they need in order to be more successful with the added benefits and convenience of web-based system—all for 50% less than traditional POS.
