Wasa Pub and POS-n-go Hand in Hand


Jim and Melinda Howard at the Wasa Country Pub and Grill use POS-n-go to track inventory and easily calculate taxes.

"POS-n-go has been a life saver for our Bar & Grill business. We started off with a very old till system that was an accounting nightmare. After switching over life is so much simpler and the accounting end is a breeze," said Melinda.

The other things she likes about POS-n-go are "PST/GST done at the end of each month, knowing the sales at the end of the day and inventory is so easy to track."

Tracking inventory helps Jim to know when and how much beer he'll need to bring in, and what beer is the biggest seller.

The grill is open every day until 10pm. Stop by for a delicious burger or a full meal.

Wasa Country Pub and Grill located at the corner of Highway 93/95 and Wasa Lake Park Drive.

Check out the Halloween Party Oct 28th, music with East/West connection starts at 8pm. Be sure to dress in your best costume.

It's worth the drive for great food, cold beer and free WIFI.

RKP Atlantic Joins the POS-n-go Family


POS-n-go Founder Richard Vienneau is proud to announce that RKP Atlantic Business Services will now promote and sell POS-n-go point-of-sale software in Atlantic Canada.

RKP owner, Ron Pomerleau, is excited to offer a top-tier POS software system to Atlantic Canada businesses including retail shops, corner convenient stores, restaurants, pubs, grills and clubs.

Pomerleau has many years experience with merchant services – debt and credit card processing – across Atlantic Canada. While engaging with merchants, Pomerleau was often asked by business owners about POS systems, hardware and software.

First introduced to POS-n-go through our mutual partner Pivotal Payments, Pomerleau investigated POS-n-go. He compared features and performance, then determined POS-n-go was a system he could endorse and recommend to merchants throughout Atlantic Canada.

When compared to other POS systems, “POS-n-go is very competitive and there’s a lot there,” said Pomerleau. He added, “The inventory control feature is superior to other systems.”

The POS-n-go features and functions for restaurants are “twice as much compared to other POS systems,” said Pomerleau.

Wasa Diner Using POS-n-go


Alison Powell at the Wasa Diner was one of the first merchants to select POS-n-go to record transactions and keep her accounts in order.

She needed an electronic solution to over-come the mounds of paper stacking up around her office.

Powell said of POS-n-go, "Its great, I used to struggle with lots of paper work to send to the bookkeeper, now I just email her the CSV reports."

The ease of creating and sending reports to the bookkeeper has saved "10%" on Powell's bookkeeping bills.

The Diner features all-day breakfast, speciality burgers and omelettes along with ten flavours of old fashioned milkshakes. She also points out the pizza's are "to die for."

The Wasa Diner still has an old cash register on display, but the POS-n-go tablet sits right beside it doing more than just recording a sales transaction.

Located at the corner of Wasa Lake Park Drive and Highway 93/95, the Diner is easy to find and worth the drive for great eats.

Release Version 1.83 - Restaurant Table View


The newest version of the POS-n-go application implements restaurant section and table screens. This new way of accessing your open orders is a perfect match for restaurants with table seating.

You can create any number of sections for your restaurant and assign each an appropriate name such as Bar, Lounge and Patio. Each section is a separate screen that holds a range of table numbers. One or more orders are then associated to a table.

The table information is presented using an easy to identify colour coding. Information such as the table number, server, customer name, number of seats and time seated provide insight at a glance.

This new version also includes Item Holds to allow servers to quickly and easily place individual items on hold. Now you can take drink, appetiser and mains orders at one time but release the items to the kitchen at appropriate times. The restaurant view shows tables with items on hold in red to ensure that they are not forgotten.

The restaurant view is designed to use with our POS-n-go Sync Box that shares orders between tablets. This powerful combination will streamline your restaurant!

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!
