Along with the new Odoo Online 2015 Summer Release come various updates and improvements to our already well-featured Point Of Sale. But what kind of improvement?
Well, what we really did is fit into your shoes. We worked out what were the main challenges that you, behind your shop's cashier or in your restaurant hall, were facing. And with that in mind, we developed whole new functionalities to help out with the trickiest parts of the job and to keep your service to the top!
So, what's new?
The main change is surely the special Restaurant interface from within the POS. To make things simpler, we decided to create a fully customizable floor design where you can add all your tables, determine the number of seats around each table, give it a colour, a name and place it exactly as it is in real-life.
But that is definitely not the only improvement. We decided to make the ordering even quicker and easier with a seamless interface between the hall, the kitchen, the bar… You can now use a printer in each of these places, so that when you place an order for a table, it is automatically printed in the kitchen and bar. No more delay, no more misunderstanding, all orders are written down and well understood by everyone!
Another new feature that restaurants will adore is the ability to split bills. It's very common to get tables full of people that each want to pay for exactly what they ordered, and most of the time, Point Of Sale systems don't allow to do that. Well, that is no longer the case for Odoo POS! You can now create new separate bills from orders placed at one table and let people each pay their part separately.
