POS 4.1.12

Improved Forced Modifier Alert

When a server attempts to add an item but missed a required modifier selection, an alert is shown, and the required forced modifier is highlighted on the order pad.



Israel Fiscal Requirements

Lavu now meets Israel fiscal requirements including receipt labels and reporting.


Fiscal Report - Order Details

Israel Fiscal Report CSV export includes order details



Dual Currency Cash Payment Support

Merchants can now configure multiple currency conversion rates so they are able to process cash payments in multiple currencies for their guests.

multiple_currency.pngCurrency Selector and Rate is set in Advance Location settings - Secondary Currency exchange rate

When on checkout, the hamburger menu > functions will reveal the functions list including Currencies.


Select Currencies to Display all currencies that have been set in the Control Panel.


You are now able to select cash to close out, or select a cash amount which will be applied to the check. Checks can also be split and different currencies applied to each check.

When the receipt is printed, it will display exchange information.



New Split Evenly Rounding Logic

When an order is split evenly, the various totals will now be calculated at the check level and then evenly distributed to the various checks. In the past Lavu would split the total amount across the checks and then round the amounts at the check level, sometimes causing a slight overcharge. A 3 way split of $11.00 would be split to 3 checks of $3.67, a total of $11.01.

Now a 3 way split of an $11.00 check goes like this: $11.00 / 3 = $3.66 + $3.66 + $3.66 remainder $.02. The $.02 will be distributed a penny at a time to the other 3.66 until none remain. Two checks would be for $3.67 and one check for $3.66.

Orders submitted through the API will now show a notification in POS 4

When the setting โ€œShow alert on POS when API orders are receivedโ€ is enabled In the Control Panel, the POS will display a notification to let users know a new API order has been placed.

Lavu 4 iPod beta

Lavu 4โ€™s user friendly interface designed for restaurants is now available iPod and iPhone.


Lavu 4 for iPod allows your servers to take orders from the table and send them directly to the kitchen. No more running to the terminal to place or pay for orders!
