Harbortouch Enhances Its Cloud-based POS Management & Reporting Solution

Upgrade adds powerful new functionality and delivers more security, reliability and scalability

Harbortouch, a leading national point of sale (POS) system and merchant services provider, has released version 3.0 of Lighthouse, the company’s cloud-based POS management and reporting portal. Lighthouse communicates information between Harbortouch POS systems and the company’s online reporting platform, enabling business owners to manage their POS system and access reports any time, any place. The new version offers mobile device access, expanded reporting capabilities, and enhanced POS management capabilities. In addition to numerous new features and a redesigned, more intuitive interface, the back-end infrastructure has been completely rebuilt to deliver a more secure, reliable and scalable platform.

New features in Lighthouse 3.0 include:

  • Ability to remotely add, edit or remove menu items, screen categories, choices, choice sets and employee information.
  • Remote access to real-time sales and labor reports, processing data, and monthly credit/debit card statements. Managers can also set up email subscriptions for each of these reports to automatically receive them on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
  • Ability to manage reservations, order gift cards, and order receipt paper and other processing supplies

“Traditionally, many POS systems required a dedicated back-office PC to run reports or make updates to the menu. Given the benefits of cloud computing, it only made sense to eliminate this antiquated practice and deliver a cloud-based solution in the form of Lighthouse,” states Harbortouch CEO Jared Isaacman. “Version 3.0 represents a significant upgrade to Lighthouse, delivering increased functionality, security, reliability and scalability.”

Lighthouse 3.0 is available today and will be deployed to all Harbortouch’s hospitality customers as part of the company’s revolutionary free POS system program.
