Known as Natasha’s Law, in memory of Natasha Ednan-Laperouse who died following an allergic reaction in 2016, it aims to protect the 2 million people in the UK living with […]

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.

The Final Countdown… To Sold Out

As we count down the days to Christmas, we are fast approaching the time of year in which we cease EPoS updates in order to ensure maximum stability over the busy festive period.

Multiple Select Post Item Selection Configuration

Despite the mouthful, this latest update is going to take a big bite (ha-ha) out of the amount of time it takes to set up certain EPoS items, that your staff spend keying in certain orders, and the amount of paper being used by your kitchen printer.
