POS-n-go News

Mr. Wilson Loves POS-n-go


Kimberley Kritters Pet Boutique is the latest merchant to select POS-n-go as their point-of-sales system.

Owner Erin Thompson and partner Brian Sondergaard just open Kritters August 4th at 550B Mark Street. They have everything you need for your dog, cat, hampster, even fish food.

When asked about POS-n-go, Erin said, "Easy peasy, love it, the training required was minimal basically an hour is what we spent and we had it down pat."

With 1000s of products, keeping track of inventory was paramount for Erin and Brian. Trying to do that on paper was just not possible.

"We just did our first inventory re-order and it was very very simple. I can print a report by supplier, it gives me the supplier codes and quantities." Then she just sends the PDF report or CSV file to the supplier, and its done.

She's happy, the supplier's happy. No stress accuracy!

Welcome to the POS-n-go family Mr. Wilson, you too Erin and Brian.

Home Made Waffle Cones at Snack Hut


Mark & Niki's Snack Hut located on the Platzl in Kimberley is home to a wide variety of hard ice cream and summer time treats. They also have hot dogs and cold drinks.

Their specialty is a home-made waffle cone.

Standing at the front counter you can watch Niki Traverse make the delicious cones from scratch. She uses an older machine to cook the batter, then rolls the waffle to give it the cone shape. Then she adds a small marshmellow and piece of chocolate to the bottom of the cone! Mmmmm, delicious.

Snack Hut chose POS-n-go for its point of sales system. The fast order screen allows Niki to complete an ice cream sale in no time at all.

Niki invites all residents and tourists to stop by and try out their favorite ice cream and a homemade waffle cone.

POS-n-go Version 1.80


Version 1.80 introduces small changes to make things easier for you. The login screen now has a Help Manual button that displays our always current on-line documentation. The documentation guides you through both using and configuring your POS.

The payment screen now has larger tender buttons and a larger tender type displayed on the amount confirmation screen ensuring that payments are always applied correctly.

For clients using the fast order screen you may now switch to the regular order details screen using the Switch Screen button. This is ideal if your fast order screen has a subset of your products and an order starts off as fast but changes to include additional products not available on the fast screen.

Version 1.80 also includes changes for new hardware that will be announced soon. Watch for upcoming announcements.

Version 1.76 - Fast Order Screen, Customer Accounts & More!


Version 1.76 is here with exciting new features! A new fast order screen is perfect for quick service restaurants, ice cream shops, bars, night clubs and any business needing the fastest customer order processing.

The screen features colour coded buttons for fast item addition. The order sub-total, tax amount and grand total are displayed and updated as items are added and removed. Buttons quickly send the order, print a receipt or transition directly to the payment screen.

The colour coded buttons are easily configured and reference your existing product setup. You may create buttons for all your products or only a subset of them. The fast order screen feature can be enabled for specific tablets in the Basic Setup, Devices section of the secure web portal. The actual buttons are configured in the Advanced Setup, Fast Order Screen section.

Another new feature is customer account management. The accounts can be used as both credit and debit type accounts depending on your business needs. The new Customer Account button can be found on the payment screen. The current order can be charged to a customer account either partially or for the full amount. Payments can be applied to the customer account from any tender type such as cash, check and credit. All account transactions print a transaction receipt, including the customer account balance function.

The screen showing customer change due has been merged into the closed order print options screen. This streamlines all orders.

The Host Sync button has been separated into Download Settings and Batch Host Sync buttons. This change makes it clearer for both new and existing customers that changes to your POS settings can be downloaded at any time and separately from the end-of-day host sync process.
