New POS features Apr 2018

Reduce manual effort by sending KOTs directly to the kitchen printer

With the new SlickPOS Desktop, you will be able to set up separate printers for Kitchen Order Tickets (KOT) and receipts. The printer in the kitchen is usually a network printer that’s connected to a wi-fi router. Chat with us if you require direct kitchen KOT prints, we’ll help you with the setup. To check out SlickPOS Desktop, download here - Windows 64, Windows 32, and Mac OSX.

Ensure correct cash balances by tracking cashier shifts

Now cashiers can start their shift by entering the opening cash balance, make orders through their shift and end the shift by specifying the closing cash balance. If permitted, the cashier can also print the shift report which generates the shift summary and matches cash sales with the opening and closing cash balance. Any cash shortage or excess gets flagged. The store owner and managers can also run and view the shift reports from the receipts page.

Capture more sales and customer data by adding custom tags

Our customers have been using the custom fields feature to capture additional details about a sale or customer. While this is helpful, there are cases when a simpler tag could be better. For example, you might want to tag orders by sales channels like Phone, Zomato, Swiggy etc. Or you might want to tag your customer as a regular or privileged customer. This is now possible with the new tags feature we have added to custom fields. For easier visual differentiation, you can select a tag color during setup.

Improved offline sync for our iOS and Android POS

We have strengthened the offline sync capability in our iOS and Android apps, this ensures your receipts are syncd reliably and in the right order. We recommend our existing mobile POS users to update and get the latest SlickPOS version.

We hope that you liked our updates, do send us a message if you have any suggestions or if you would like to see a demo. See you again in May with the next round of updates!
