What is Point of Sale?

Point of Sale systems is a fixture of all our monetary transactions. Using a self-checkout, handing items/money to a cashier, and buying things online are just a few examples of everyday uses and interactions with a POS.

Within FranchiCzar OS, Point of Sale gives Franchisors, Franchisees, and Facilities the ability to Create, Manage, and sell their items and services to customers.

Why Should I use Point of Sale?

Adding your items to the POS system allows you to quickly perform transactions with customers for the exchange of products and services.   

Getting Started

The FranchiCzar OS Point of Sale is available via the vertical menu (left-side) within FCOS.
