Premium POS Module

Overview

The Premium POS Module for POS Pizza gives operators full control over their desired POS experience. You design the workflow. You design the user interface. You decide what features are available. You can set the size, shape, function, wording, font, colors, icon, position and more for each button that you create on a page. Each page can hold up to 49 buttons, and you have 255 button pages to work with. There are over 40 individual functions that can be assigned to buttons as you design your system. A full list of these functions can be found below, but buttons can do all kinds of tasks from showing reports, printing receipts, opening the cash drawer, adding menu items, and navigating to other pages of buttons.

You decide the main screen colors, the price indicator colors, the order slip (upper right) colors, and the button area colors, as well as choose a set of fonts for each design. You can have multiple layouts for various machines in your store. You can have one setup for phone answering stations, another for the front counter stations, and yet another for the bar. Templates are easy to manage and copy between stations and even between stores when you use our free Premium POS Profile Tool found in our support forums.

You can decide how you want your workflow to operate. Do you want to ask the order type first (take-out, delivery)? For adding items, you can decide the steps needed. Specials could be 1 click if they are on your home screen. You can put other items 2 clicks away by creating a category button which goes to a new page of buttons containing items in that category. Maybe you want to ask for a size or even a crust type along the way. You have full control over the workflow, so you can design a system that best meets your needs.

The Premium POS Module is an add-on package which gives you expanded capability over the standard "Main POS Module". The Premium POS Module can be added on to any POS Pizza v7 SA or CS license for only $175 additional. The Premium POS Module requires a node license in order to run, just like the standard POS module. This module replaces the standard module, so once it has been configured, there would be no need to run both.
