Improvements to POS Performance

We understand that having a blazing fast point of sale system in your tasting room is critical and we want you to know we’re working around the clock to address the reliability problems some of you have encountered on our POS in recent weeks.

Here's what we've done so far:

  • Optimized customer search: when you search for a customer on the POS you will get the same results with less load on the servers
  • Optimized order listing: when you list your orders on the Order Manager it will render faster with less load on the servers
  • Removed legacy pieces of code that will improve Internet functionality overall by preventing unnecessary server calls that slow down the system

Coming soon is a new retry system and in the next 60 days we will also be implementing better caching around products, product images and coupons which will reduce server calls and wireless reliance, improving speed and performance.

Capture Signatures on POS

iOS and Desktop (Chrome browser) versions of POS now support signature capture when your customer needs to sign for a transaction.

Collecting signatures on the desktop will require a touchscreen monitor that can be turned to the customer, allowing them to sign for credit card transactions. 

Signature capture can be turned on and off in POS Profile Settings.

Collect the Right Cash, Easier

Make it easy for your customers to pay with cash. In the POS when you're collecting cash from a customer an error message will now appear when the amount of cash tendered is lower than the amount due.

When the amount tendered is higher than the amount due, you will then see how much change you owe your customer.

Introducing the mPOP Printer and Cash Drawer Combo

If your register is feeling a bit cluttered, we have some good news. 

We’ve rolled out a new hardware compatibility for the mPOP, a point of purchase device that allows you to combine your cash drawer and printer to free up space at your register.

Using Bluetooth to connect to your POS, the mPOP is easy to set up so you can focus more on selling wine to your customers and less time troubleshooting.

All you have to do is pair the mPOP with the tablet or phone you’re using for your Vin65 POS and you’ll be ready to start processing transactions.

Just a heads up, since this printer uses Bluetooth technology you can only pair one device at a time.

Find out if the mPOP is right for you >
