Hi All,

I am investigating using the iPad as the core of an EPOS system. I see that companies like Revell (http://revelsystems.com/) cator for the US markets but do we have anything like this in the UK. I am a business owner opening a new bar and am looking for better, newer and cost effective solutions to our till needs. We already have two iPads so it would be good not to have to spend on costly touch screen pc's when we have half the hardware already!

 

Any thoughs would be great

Thanks,

Phil

iPad, iOS 4.3.2

    Hi Phil

     

    I am looking for the same products as you describe, so far I've found if it helps;

    http://www.erply.com/

    http://www.vendhq.com/tour

     

    however both have monthly subscription fee's, does anyone know of a similiar product that has a single one off payment that would suit me better?

     

    Thanks in advance

     

    Kyle

    I'm looking into bluetooth/wireless compatible printers and cash drawers-but as you say Im not sure if they are compatible with Erply or Vend.

     

    We're going to Spring Fair at the NEC to meet with our suppliers in the begining of Feb and also with the intention to see if there are any Ipad based POS venders- I know there wasnt anything at the Autumn Fair but I'll post if I find anthing.

    I've seen the Mamut POS solution before - but like you say it requires a desktop Mac -so isnt suitable for our needs whereas an Ipad version would be ideal-come an Apple-get it sorted!!!!!!!!

    Hi There

     

    I’ve come across your thread and would like to tell you about our Halo software company based in Lincolnshire. We already have our software installed into one of Lincoln’s top restaurants and have received excellent feedback.

     

    As part of our Halo software we have a system called Halo for Restaurants which uses an iPad EPOS app. Waiting staff are able to quickly and easily allocate customers to tables, recording the number of covers, restaurant area (inside/outside/room), table name/number and the option to add any additional notes i.e. Rush table, Birthday Party.

     

    Customisable menus and wine lists can be uploaded and categorised to your requirements onto your iPad and taking orders can now be done quickly and easily at the touch of a button and orders sent directly to the kitchen/bar printer to begin preparing before you’ve even left your table. The iPad is also linked to the restaurant till to automatically print your bills and take secure payments.

     

    The system also allows you to gain a complete overview of your dinner service including the status of tables (orders taken, mains delivered etc.), time of arrival, waiting times, waiting staff assigned to tables and more, giving you complete confidence in managing your dinner service.

     

    Not only that but everything you need to manage your business is there including accounting, sales, staff performance reports, stock control, CRM and even updating menus on the company website all in one place. This integrated system receives real time data from the table service app and sends it through to your laptop/PC which means your system updates all accounting, sales and performance is automatically updated without you having to lift a finger!

     

    To learn more visit us at http://www.halo-business.com/restaurants/ or feel free to contact us at enquiries@halo-business.com for more information or to arrange a demo.

     

    Kind Regards,

    Grace

    Hi,

     

    I've come across this thread, thought I would let you know about a UK based Ipad Epos system that we are partly helping to develop. It's called I-pos http://www.i-pos.co.uk to be released soon for testing. If interested, sign up to the mailing list for an update when we launch. This app is going to have inbuilt feature requesting so kiss goodbye to a traditional till system and welcome in a system that will evolve with you. This system will be compatible with a printer and cash drawer as well as chip and pin devices. It will come bundled with our very own custom developed ipad security stand. We designed the stand to cut costs, it retails at just £89 and can be found at www.securemyipad.co.uk soon as well. The overall cost of the system per month will be less expensive than traditional, and as we all know, the hardware setup will be significatly less thanks to apple's ipad!

     

    Hope that helps!
