  • You can now set the order in which items on work dockets are printed in Administration -> EPoS Categories.
  • You can now have a PLU appear more than once on an EPoS menu, handy if you have a page of commonly used PLUs and you want to have the same PLUs in specialist pages too.


  • The new Orders & Deliveries page replaces Stock Orders and Stock Transfer and shows orders, transfers and deliveries to make it easier to keep track of your stock movement across your venues.
  • A new Transfer Fulfillment page makes managing incoming transfer requests easier than ever before and is powerful enough to allow a KOBAS venue to operate as a central kitchen.
  • An entirely new transfer process allows both parties and head office to keep track of stock movement between venues in real time.
  • Transfer amounts can be adjusted before being dispatched or when received to cover discrepancies in transit.
  • The Stock Transfer Report has been re-written from the ground up to make it clearer and expose more data.
  • We’ve re-written the Stock Current Position report to allow custom selection of ingredient categories. It also now shows if ingredients are used in products.

  • The holidays page now offers more explanation in the event that you aren’t able to edit a holiday record despite ordinarily having permission to do so.
  • You can now create a new member of staff ready to commence new starter tasks, without having to hop through the interview process. This is helpful when adding existing staff to a new Kobas account, or for customers who don’t use our Human Resource management tools but need staff in the system for EPoS and payroll.
  • You can apply reduced or zero rate tax to EPoS items when flagged as Eat In. The primary intended use case here is for customers who sell non-taxable items exclusively for consumption off the premises (e.g. coffee beans, hot sauce, books) and wish to process those in the same transaction as regular taxable eat-in items.
  • You can now delete a rota that hasn’t yet been started, allowing you to easily scrap it all and start over.

Create powerful slideshows of imagery, shown on automatic rotation, to entice customers, increase sales and strengthen brand presence in your venues.
  • Logged stock wastage can now be removed in Kobas Cloud.
