POS 4.0

New and Improved Modifier Flow

The item ordering and modifier flow has been redesigned to allow for a more intuitive and logical flow between modifier choices. This allows for automatic transitions between modifier lists and easy editing.


New “Take Deposit/Pay in Full”

We have updated the deposit experience in the POS to allow users to select "Take Deposit" or "Pay in Full" when closing a deposit-eligible order.

LIP Updates

We have implemented several features that will prevent users from manually settling a batch with uncaptured transactions, and we’ve improved visibility of pending transactions in cases where the gateway response takes longer than usual.


New Kiosk Splash Screen

The new Kiosk splash screen provides customers the ability to display images and details of menu items, as well as choose the dining option related to a customer’s order.

Redesigned printer settings in Kiosk

Managers will now see “disconnected” in Kiosk printer settings when no printers are assigned. They will also have the ability to review pertinent information about the printers such as the printer name, IP and port, model, and assignment.

Redesign for updating and pairing Bluetooth readers at Kiosk stations  

Managers will now know if a PayPal account has been set up, whether the card reader has been set up, and if an update is needed to the reader.

Control Panel 4.0 (Beta)

Updates to Dashboard Charts

We have updated most of the charts in the Dashboard to show all data points and accumulate the data at the next hour.

Unsupported Browser

Now customers who are trying to work in the control panel from unsupported browsers will be notified to use a different browser.
