Point-of-Sale Software is used almost at every commercial point where there is an interaction between the buyer and the seller. So whenever you order a sandwich at Subway or a burger at McDonlads, the attending person at the counter operates one such Software and places your order. But as we know that each of these stores with a unique brand name has an unparalleled quality to its range of products and services and therefore needs a custom-tailored interface to serve their purposes efficiently. But the franchises we’re talking about are big-enough to afford such pricey and elaborate features. What about the small and medium businessmen like the restaurant owners on the streets? They can’t afford to compromise on their customers’ quality of experience; neither can they afford to bill them for the Software prices they bear. So what options do they have now?


Well, there’s certainly one prima facie option called POS Software by Kounta which is an iOS app from Kounta, one of the leading POS Software developers. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


This app solves both of our problems with its magic wand i.e. it’s feature-full and affordable. Let’s check out the first perspective first. The app is Cloud based and all your data will have a safe back up online. But it doesn’t mean that you always have to stay connected to the internet. In case you’re out of network, you can still continue working seamlessly and the data will be automatically restored online once you’re re-connected.

Handling the product inventory can’t be easier; your inventory automatically gets updated with your sales and you can refuel it once the stocks have arrived. Adding a new product or deleting an old one is also a one-click process. But how’ll you decide which dish to remove from your menu? Is there any specific criterion that you follow? Even if you don’t, Kounta has got one backed for you. Right at your dashboard, you can see how good each of your products is doing in the sales department. You have the list of top selling products, a sales report as well as a sales summary chart to present the numbers in a more graphical-cum-understandable way. What else do you need to manage your restaurant from your home! In fact that should be on your mind in case you’re planning to manage more than one restaurant with this app at the same time.


This app integrates several different leading Add-ons of the likes of Tyro, SAP, Xero, Collect Rewards, Salesforce, etc. So you and your customers, both get an optimum experience with all Payment Gateways compatible and acceptable at your counters along with different Printers, Scanners and cash drawers.

So what are you waiting for! The app is available for free in the App Store (Lite Version) with Kounta Business and Kounta Plus plans available at $50/month/store and $150/month/store (billed monthly).

Pros: elegant and intuitive dashboard; cloud-based with both online and offline compatibility; sales reports and charts; integrated leading Add-ons; free version available.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
