Stock Project Update

| Comments Off on Stock Project Update

We have been quieter than we aim to be on this blog in recent weeks, but it has not been from want of activity in the Kobas engine room.

Our developers have been working on a complete overhaul of our stock system, starting from scratch, and rebuilding from the ground up.

As an entirely new system, we unfortunately cannot introduce it in […]

If you have been following the Kobas blog in 2018 then you will have learned that we take data protection very seriously.

Whilst these may not have been the flashiest of updates that we’ve put out over the years, they have helped put our users in control of their personal data and ensure that our clients remain compliant with the incoming […]

New Discounts Report

| Comments Off on New Discounts Report

We recently let our front-end team loose on our existing discounts report and they came back with something brilliant.

The old report has been on our hit-list for some time, as whilst it shows very useful information, it certainly wasn’t the prettiest page in Kobas. The report also had a hard-limit of venues that could be added at one time, which […]

With the GDPR deadline of May 25th looming, it’s important to get a handle on where you stand with the data that you hold. That’s why we have already created tools to automatically erase outdated data, as well as a home-page widget that shows users the information that we hold on them.

Zero Price PISC Printing

| Comments Off on Zero Price PISC Printing

Post Item Selection Configuration Groups, besides being a mouthful to say and usually abbreviated as PISCs, allow for cooking instructions, additions, modifications, or price changes to be applied to a base EPoS Item. These will then be appended to work dockets to the kitchen, informing the staff that changes to the usual preparation will need to be made.

Up until today, […]

Throughout the beginning of this year, we will be maintaining updates on our work behind the scenes to ensure readiness for compliance with the new General Data Protection Regulation that is introduced on May 25th 2018.

Staff Profile Scan Manager

| Comments Off on Staff Profile Scan Manager

Kobas allows for end-to-end HR management from recruitment through to rotas and payroll. As part of the “New Starter” process, it’s also possible to upload and manage scans or documents for all of the aspects of HR that we don’t cover ourselves: be they signed contracts, references, or training sign-offs.

Up until today, we’ll admit this hasn’t been the quickest process. […]

With a huge update due later in the week, I’m happy to announce that we’ve also released two smaller changes to our discount and venue managers that may have flown under your radar. Both of these features include changes to the presentation of receipts, in our unending commitment to not only provide ease and clarity for our users, but also […]
