Optional Multiple Choice Product (Hospitality Modifiers)

Currently in Beta testing - if you would like this added to your licence, please contact us.

We have made some improvements to the existing Multiple Choice Products functionality, which will benefit hospitality users with time saving and ordering flow. These include;

  • Speed - Customers will be able to process orders quicker without the need to go through all multiple choice product options.
  • User Interface - Multiple choice products will now be displayed towards the bottom of the till, away from the main sections of the till but can be used if the customer requests any extras.
  • Ease of Use - With a simple swipe up, you can see the full list of MCPs. This list can also be minimised and maximised to see more or less of the till front.

To enable this, please head to the Back Office > Products >Advanced > Multiple Choice Products. There will be a tick box to make Multiple choice products optional.

Stock Take in BackOffice :ballot_box_with_check:

Another launch released in Beta and will be released to all customers soon.

Epos Now are pleased to announce that they have taken one of our most important aspects of our software and copied it over to the Back Office.

We believe this will be revolutionary for our software and for our customers business as this is will set us up nicely for another new upcoming feature… Stocktake Groups.

Below are some benefits that come with this new change:

  • No Till Needed - Users will no longer need to use the till or unassign licenses to use the stock take functionality.
  • Anywhere, Anytime - Providing users have access to the back office, they can carry out the stock take from any device at any time.
  • Stocktake Groups (Coming Soon) - By having stocktake in the Back Office, this will allow us to implement Stocktake Groups. This will allow Multiple users will be able to contribute to one stocktake saving time and money.


Kitchen Display
