Hardware Requirements



Minimum:
  • Atom 570 single core
  • RAM: 4GB / 8GB recommended on server station
  • Windows XP SP2 (Windows 7 or higher recommended)
  • SVGA 800x600 (Higher Res Recommended)
  • Network Interface (Wired or WiFi) (for CS Version)
Recommended:
  • Pentium-class 2.0 GHz w/Windows 7 Professional or newer (32-Bit or 64-Bit)(4 GB RAM+)
  • GB Wired Ethernet (If running CS Version)

POS Pizza is very efficient and has a very low overhead, so it runs extremely fast on most hardware. You should have at least the recommended minimum amount of RAM that your version of Windows requires in order to have POS Pizza run properly.

POS Pizza needs less than 50 Megabytes of Hard Disk space for a full install, but as you use the system the needed space requirement will grow. This is hardly an issue with todays systems. Since POS Pizza's overhead is very low, you will find that it is rock solid and performs very well on most small to mid-sized systems as well as on larger systems. The nice thing is that POS Pizza does not demand large amounts of hardware in order for it to operate, and runs very well on minimal hardware and even tablet PCs.

Tablets running full versions of Windows 7, 8, or 10 are supported by POS Pizza. Tablets running other OSs are not directly supported, but can be made to work in some instances.

If you are running a multi-user system the one computer that should have some extra horse-power would be the one that is running the server portion. More speed, and more RAM are always helpful on your server computer.

Additional Hardware

With POS Pizza that's the nice thing... There are no special hardware requirements so to speak. Think of them more as options. With POS Pizza you have lots of flexibility as to what size of POS system you want to install. You can start out with everything, or start small and build up as you need to. POS Pizza will support any standard printer for receipts such as an InkJet, Laser, or Dot Matrix. If you have a printer attached to your Windows computer right now, odds are it will work with POS Pizza. You also have the option of using POS Printers as well, such as the Epson TM-U220, or the thermal TM-88 series. When printing to a standard printer you can choose to print to 8½ X 11 size pages or 5½ X 8½ size pages. The POS Printers print to continuous rolls of paper. You can also choose not to print at all, or only to print at certain stations. POS Pizza is extremely configurable and very scalable. Other optional components would include Electronic Cash Drawers, Touch-Screen Monitors, Mag Card Readers, Label Printers, Customer Displays and a Caller ID Unit. When operating in Touch-Screen Mode no keyboard is needed since POS Pizza has an On-Screen Virtual Keyboard where data entry is required. Box Labels can be printed on a standard continuous feed printer, a Cognitive Label Printer or a DYMO LabelWriter series Label Printer.

Networks

POS Pizza [CS] is a full client/server package that includes a TCP/IP database server and the client package. The server gets installed on one machine, and the client package gets installed on machines that you want to run the various parts of the software from. You can even install the server and the client on the same machine. The server is very light-weight, and does not need to be run on a dedicated computer, or a "server" version of Windows. The server is compatible with all versions of Windows (XP or higher). Setting up the server is a fairly easy process, and the client packages can all auto-detect the server making setup even easier yet!

If you are running a single station, then you don't even need to worry about setting up a server since POS Pizza also gives you a full stand alone version [SA]. When you purchase the software, you get access to both the CS and the SA versions, so which one you decide to run is entirely up to you (you can only run 1 or the other at a time). Even if you start out on the stand alone version, and then down the road switch over as you grow, there are no added costs (unless you add additional order-entry station counts to your license).

top

Make-Line Stations

POS Pizza gives you the option of splitting your order items up into 4 separate areas. Multiple make-line screens can service each of these 4 areas. Each one of these can be assigned to a different food or kitchen area, so the workers in that area only see items that pertain to their specific area. Lines can be serviced by Screens, Label Printers (Box or Bag Labels), or Receipt (slip) printers, in any combination. You can even set it up so that when an item is completed in one area that it is bounced to a new area for further handling.

top

Inventory Management

POS Pizza tracks the toppings, components, and whole items that are sold on every transaction. This data is stored in your current database and can later be retrieved or searched for reporting purposes. You can use the inventory system to get detailed, or you can just use it for general reporting, or not at all. The choice is entirely yours. If you use full inventory tracking, all of the component item amounts are tracked by the system as they are used in the making of items that you will sell using the system. You can use the provided tools to add to your inventory or to do a physical count. There are various reports for the inventory items including a report for items/components that are running low, and need to be re-ordered.

top

Customer Management

POS Pizza makes keeping track of your customers easy. Did a customer write you a bad check? No problem, mark that customer and they will not be able to pay by check again. Look up customers by name, street, customer ID, or phone number. View their order history, or even import an old order as a new order. View their total number of orders, total $$$ spent and more. Generate customer reports, such as customer mailing labels, marketing, and Top 20 customer reports by total spent, or by total orders and more. Give credits to customers or allow customers to run tabs or have in-house accounts.

top

Customer Loyalty

POS Pizza uses an internal "Points" tracking system to give you a lot of flexibility in setting up a customer loyatly or rewards program. You can decide if (and which) items purchased will give the customer points, as well as sell items for X number of points (if the customer has the points available). This is very flexible since the points can be setup on any items that you choose and can have any value or meaning that you choose.

top

Employees / Users

POS Pizza also helps you track your employees. The database keeps track of general employee information as well as tracks hours, mileage, cost, delivery payment methods and more. Each employee is assigned their own log on ID & Password, and can also use a magnetic card for logins. You can control what each employee can do, where they can log in, and what features that they have access to, once they get there. The security system used by POS Pizza is extensive (but easy to use), and gives you a lot of flexibility in setting up system users depending on what their role is in your business. You can also view delivery driver reports, and employee payroll reports, as well as export payroll data to a CSV file that can be imported by payroll software or uploaded to payroll services.

top

Driver Dispatch

POS Pizza also gives you a Driver Dispatch module or Driver Console that will help drivers manage delivery orders. Drivers log in to this station, pick up orders, deliver them, and then finally check orders back in as delivered. You can run multiple driver's stations if needed.

Dine-In Module

The Dine-In Module allows you to manage wait staff, tables, sections, and reservation scheduling in your full service sit-down restaurant. The Main POS Module has support for Dine-In orders, but is not quite as suited for use in a full service dining facility as the Dine-In Module is. With the Dine-In Module your wait staff can easily manage all of their tables and orders all from one screen.

Summit's Dine-In Module for POS Pizza has the following key features:
  • Integrates seamlessly with the rest of the POS Pizza system.
  • Database supports unlimited sections and tables.
  • Easily close entire sections or individual tables.
  • Setup sections that automatically close at certain times of the day.
  • Create guest reservations for tables or sections using an easy wizard-style interface for any time or date in the future.
  • Wait staff can easily transfer their tables to other wait staff when they go on a break.
  • Add unlimited Items to a table ticket.
  • Support for ½ & ½ and double toppings.
  • Send all added items to the make-lines or kitchen printers at one time.
  • Send new items to the make-lines as they are added to an existing guest ticket.
  • Uses standard POS Pizza inventory Items, Non-Inventory Items, and Groups.
  • Minimal data entry for on-screen keyboard, very few places use this keyboard, and most places are button-based.
  • Tickets may be settled at this module or at the Main POS Station to be paid at the front counter.
  • Tables Stats Report shows number of uses, use time average, check amount average for all tables in your database.

Reporting

POS Pizza can generate lots of different reports about your inventory, customers, employees, gift cards, and tracking reports that can track order edits, and many other things that go on. Some of these were mentioned above but the number of reporting options is very flexible with POS Pizza. Most reports can be filtered so you get only the data you want to see. Set Date Ranges, and searches by specific products, and more. There are also reports for your least popular products as well as best sellers, top XX products, Profits, Delivery Times, Drawer Closeouts, and more. To see some of these reports download POS Pizza [LT] and install the sample data. If you have added on the Enhanced Caller ID, you will also have full reporting of inbound calls, outbound calls, and call statistics which are very useful for helping you determine your telephone line usage. All reports can be saved as Stand-Alone Executable Program Files. What this means is that you can save certain reports and take them home and easily view or print them again without even having POS Pizza installed on the other computer!

Technical Support Policy

Telephone based technical support is available for purchase in 3-Hour blocks that can be used for support of POS Pizza. When you initially purchase POS Pizza's base package you will receive one 3-Hour block of support time free with your purchase. Support time is billed by the minute, and does not expire. Use some now, and your remaining minutes can be used at any point in the future. Purchases of Node count upgrades are not eligable for any free hours of tech support. Purchases of upgrades to the POS system will receive 1 free hour with the purchase. An upgrade is a paid upgrade, and does not include free updates.

What is Not Covered:
Our technical support does NOT cover any issues that are not directly controlled by settings within our software package. Any issues that require modifying the Windows Registry, Control Panel, Security Settings, Network Settings, or any other "Windows" (or OS) settings are NOT covered by us! System BIOS and/or hardware settings, Network Adapter Settings, Printer Settings, Printer Driver Settings, Printer dip switch settings, or any other setting that is not controlled from within the POS Pizza software is NOT covered by our technical support. We do not cover any HARDWARE issues whatsoever.

What *IS* Covered:
Our technical support will cover any and all issues that can be resolved by changing a setting inside of the POS Pizza program. This includes setting up menus, employees, customers, printing, cash drawers, poll displays, make stations, and other devices from within the POS Pizza software. Any hardware that is going to be used with the system must be properly configured at the hardware level prior to attempting to make it work with POS Pizza. In other words, any cabling, drivers, and driver settings should be setup and the device tested prior to contacting Summit's Technical Support.

Technical support will also provide information on recommended hardware for use with POS Pizza as well as other pre-sales questions free of charge.

Free Time Blocks are also not transferrable, and may only be used by the original holder of the free hours.

Other Support Methods:
Summit Computer Networks still offers FREE technical support via the support forums and by email. Please note that some issues may not be resolvable by these means and will need to be resolved by telephone. Issues will not be resolved by very lengthy email's or posts on the forums if they are very involved and are something that should be handled by telephone. Many issues have already been solved for and by other users on the Support Forums, so please search there first or look in the supplied documentation for POS Pizza.

Hardware Dongles (License)

POS Pizza's Full versions require that a hardware dongle be attached to the USB port on the server (for CS version), or the PC running the software (SA version). Once you receive your dongle, you will need to "activate" it with us. Once a dongle is activated, IT WILL NOT BE REPLACED WITHOUT FIRST SENDING BACK THE ORIGINAL. What this means is that if you lose your dongle, you lost your license and will need to purchase another one at full price, sorry but we cannot make any exceptions. Defective dongles will be replaced free of charge. Damaged dongles will be replaced for a small fee along with the damanged dongle being returned to Summit Computer Networks. *It is recommended to add this software to your business insurance policy to protect against lost or stolen hardware dongles. You should also keep your server out of the main area where employees are so that the dongle cannot be removed by an employee.

Refund/Return Policy

You can return POS Pizza (base package) for a **full refund if done within 30 days of your original purchase date. Add-on purchases are "as-is" unless they fall within the 30 day mark of the base license purchase date, where they may be returned with the entire package for a refund. To do a return the ORIGINAL dongle must be returned to us and verified by our support department before the refund can be processed. Once this is done a refund will be issued to the original purchaser of the software. It is also recommended to fully evaluate the LT version of the software to find out if it will meet your needs before purchasing the full version software. ** Any support hours used after the purchase period will be deducted from the refund amount.
