FreePOSProject, a new point-of-sale (POS) platform, launches today, and will help restaurant owners globally achieve greater efficiency and profitability.
It will also disrupt an industry that has come to rely on patchy solutions from a fragmented marketplace of vendors.
FreePOSProject is completely free to download, install, and deploy. It is not simply free for a trial period, or free for a fixed set of features. Upgrades, as they are released, will also be made available for free.
Frustrated with expensive, dysfunctional software, co-founder and restaurateur Avner Friedman teamed up with technology developer Noam Copel to devise a solution. Together, the culinarian/developer duo created their own fully functional POS platform and put a groundbreaking spin on it: they are offering it for free.
Costs to the business owner, however, include the purchase of hardware, such as PCs, touch-screen monitors, tablets and other devices. FreePOSProject does not sell such hardware, and a restaurant’s existing hardware can be used, if compatible.
“Most POS systems currently available on the market lack functionalities present in FreePOSProject, such as real-time monitoring and social integration,” explains Friedman. “With the introduction of FreePOSProject, a significant move away from the status quo in the industry is on the horizon.”
The previously frustrated Friedman now has FreePOSProject working in his own restaurant, Neri Sushi in Breda, The Netherlands, and with great results. The software has proven to be remarkably easy to integrate with his restaurant’s operations and equally easy for his staff to use. Friedman and his management team have remote access to all of their operational needs, including sales processing, table controls, custom analytics, and hours tracking.
“It was time for restaurant owners to catch up to the rest of the world and enjoy free technology,” adds Copel. “With the abundance of advances in technology happening everywhere around us, why should they be forced to pay so much for inferior POS solutions?”
In the coming months, the team behind FreePOSProject will stay very busy. While POS systems are primarily used by restaurants to transmit orders, manage inventory, and process sales, FreePOSProject will soon incorporate new features that optimize the platform even further, including running promotions, marketing via social media, and building customer communities. Again, these updates will be available to all users free of charge, and on an unlimited basis.
