PointOS Upgrades System With Release of PointOS 5.0June 6, 2011
Vero Beach, FL - PointOS, a point of sale (POS) software company catering to the hospitality industry is thrilled to announce their recent partnership with BlueStar solutions distributor and the upcoming release of PointOS 5.0, which coincides with the reception of their PCI Compliance.
BlueStar has national and international reach, and they handpick only the products they deem the very best for inclusion in their network. "When I first launched the PointOS program, an early goal was to gain industry recognition that would warrant inclusion in BlueStar," said Daniel Kurland, owner of PointOS. "Their high standards for products carried, coupled with their extensive reach, is why I see this as a remarkable opportunity."
PointOS software was not only developed for the hospitality industry, it was developed by the hospitality industry. They understand, from their own intimate knowledge of the service sector, just how quickly the industry changes. This lent considerable weight to their decision to build one pillar of their business operation completely around superior customer service. One way they remain dedicated to that core operating principal is by offering the latest updates of their software to existing customers first, and for free. Not feeling completely satisfied with that extra step in their dedication to superior customer service, PointOS also vowed to offer all customers a 24/7 technical support center based in the United States. They delivered. The 24-hour call center located in Melbourne, Florida is open to PointOS customers seven days a week, also at no additional cost.
Staying true to their mission, PointOS has taken version 4.5 a step further. Not only does the release of version 5.0 meet PCI compliance standards, there are also several new features to enhance their client's customer's experience. The latest version will offer coupon and gift certificate applications, a customized pizza building application and house accounts for hotels and clubs to run ongoing tabs. Features include:
