New app could transform business says inventors

iPos 2

A former nightclub manager and an engineering student are launching an app which they claim could ‘transform the life’ of bar and restaurant staff. Robin Knox (25) and Paul Walton (26) from Edinburgh designed their point of sale app called iPos to work exclusively with the iPad. “We anticipate interest from restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels or indeed any SME with a terminal,” says Knox.
In a bold move to capture market share the iPos is being offered on a free trial basis to the first 250 businesses that sign up.
To use iPos a business will need to have an iPad plus a cash drawer stand and printer. Priced at £450 for an iPad compatible till drawer and receipt printer and a monthly subscription charge starting at £39 the developers point out this compares to existing electronic point of sale systems which can cost up to £4,000 with higher monthly charges.
Geoff Thornton of Epernay Champagne Bars commented “It’s quick, clever and does the job. We will be moving all of our sites over. Anyone who appreciates the simplicity and ingenuity of iPad will like iPos. We had struggled for years with till systems and had enough of overpriced hardware and over complicated software that rarely performed,
and cost the earth.”
