Frequently Asked Questisons
xnPOS is a fully internationalized food & beverage point-of-sale system designed to meet the specific requirements of the accommodation industry, be that short-stay or long-stay accommodation. It is a centrally managed, full-service, cloud system with enterprise scalability, security and performance, that tightly integrates with systems such as (but not limited to) property management systems, dining reservation systems, integrated payment gateways, stock and materials management systems, Business Intelligence and more.
A powerful two-way real time interface with various hotel PMS (property management systems), ensures functional integration with hotel operations and folio charges, be that room charge, conference & banquet charges, package postings to PMS, and posting any financial charge (be that cash, credit card) which sends all transactions to the PMS.
In addition, the PMS interface allows guests a full self-service option where they can select items from POS, and directly room charge this to their own room/folio, be that on their own mobile device (phone, tablet, laptop), or via a self-service kiosk.
Where any long-stay business requires a food & beverage POS solution, such as co-living spaces, workforce and staff accommodation, aged-care and retirement facilities, or other, xnPOS can post POS charges via our xms-RPM solution which manages long-stay accommodation billing and folio or lease management. Cafes, restaurants, gift shops, convenience stores, room service, conference and events, even poolside and bar operations, can conveniently post POS charges from xnPOS into xms-RPM. In this sense, xnPOS as well as xms-RPM conveniently covers all operational requirements of the long-stay accommodation sector in so far as accommodation and F&B ad retail POS.
Any and all food & beverage and retail operations in short-stay and long-stay accommodation, as well as hospitality groups (restaurant chains), can enjoy the benefits of xnPOS.
xnPOS is deployed across many different food & beverage operations, including (but not limited to) restaurants, cafes, bistros, night clubs, lobby lounges, cocktail bars, night clubs, bottle shop and drive-through operations, coffee carts and mobile food service stations, room service, poolside bars, self-service (grab & go) and even laundry departments, can all leverage the same xnPOS platform across one, several or all of these outlets.
Depending on scope of each project, a small single POS terminal outlet in one property can be up and running live with xnPOS within 2 - 3 weeks. Of course this may extend depending on various factors including hardware shipment and configuration, how many add-ons and modules are deployed, the number of integrations, and of course if more outlets need xnPOS to be deployed. These may all extend the deployment duration from order date to Go Live date.
While xnPOS is generally deployed as a true cloud-based POS solution, local offline redundancy at the property / outlet level is needed to ensure continuity of business and trading regardless of internet availability. This is why xnPOS also enables an OTS (Outlet Transaction Server) to continue to trade locally, with local caching of all transactional postings, in the event that internet reliability or availability is compromised. Thus ensures an always-on POS solution even when it may be hosted in our data centre.
xnPOS is a fully internationalized and comprehensive food & beverage point-of-sale system. As with any robust foodservice operation, we offer a range of additional capabilities, add-ons and hardware options that ensures your needs are met every time.
xnPOS can be enhanced by adding mobile waiter tablets (for order and pay at the table options), self-service kiosks, guest self-service on own mobile device, kitchen display system (KDS), local country fiscalization requirements and compliance options, xnBI integration, integration with property management systems, materials management systems (ERP), club/membership management systems, payment gateways, and dining reservation systems,
Designed with contactless guest self-service in mind, xnPOS offers two main guest-facing capabilities, ensuring reduced operating costs and increased revenues. (1) xnPOS GO, being our contactless guest ordering and self service including scanning QR codes to enable online digital menus and self-service ordering (including pay by credit card or charge to guest room), such as for room service, restaurant, cafe or poolside usage, as well as (2) xnPOS KIOSK, enabling guests to interact with a digital kiosk to browse menus and order food & beverage as and when needed (to the table or seat), such as in a lobby area, grab and go open kitchen, egg station for hotel breakfast, poolside, bistro, and more.
xnPOS Mobile is compatible with any later Android device, be that an 8” inch tablet or 5” inch hand-held device, and speeds up service in large indoor or outdoor areas by reducing server journeys to and from a fixed POS workstation. xnPOS Mobile allows for fast and efficient management without sacrificing on tableside or poolside functionality. xnPOS Mobile enables ordering at the table, and paying at the table.
xnPOS is designed to run on the latest Windows-based operating systems for POS terminals and latest Android devices for POS mobility. Integrated thermal and remote ordering printers, cash drawers, barcode scanners and various components like CDU (customer display units) can add to hardware options you may wish to consider.
