    Your customer service is an absolute disgrace. One of my staff members rang your team for some advise and your support team were rude, extremely condescending and unhelpful. My staff member was so upset and nearly in tears. Is this this how you treat your customers??????? If we treated our customers like you have we would be out of business. You are a disgrace and not worth your “so called” customer support. I will never ever recommend you

    Absolutely the worst POS system I have ever used. I have used a ton of them from IBM PLU look-up systems right up to Digital Dining, they should bury this program in the furthest reaches of the Dark Web and start over. Cannot re-open a check, multiple splits cannot be printed from one screen, no over all final close out report. Every up date changes the way the system works and adds a bug, for instance last up date made all nonpriced modifiers print on the guest receipt. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS GARBAGE.

      Hi Jimmy
      We’re having the same problems. Have you persevered with Kounta or have you gone elsewhere?

      We are very happy with Kounta especially the off-line mode as we have bad Internet and bad power. Kounta works good in off-line and our old POS used to suck dry the UPS in about 30 minutes but Kounta and the iPad we can run without power for many hours.

        I’m implementing Kounta for a number of current and prospective clients. So far everyone who has worked with it is very happy with the overall performance. Once you hook the necessary plugins in (Which is easy) it does everything you could want. I do agree with comments regarding the back end, it is a little confusing initially but once you get familiar you find yourself navigating around with few issues.The ability to run on almost any device is impressive, we are running it mobile on an iPhone and unlike many so called MPOS you get all the features of the full sized version on the mobile and small screen version.

          Highly recommend Boppl. I was looking for a mobile ordering app for takeaway, scheduled food and drink orders and table service, I chose Kounta after being shown it’s integration with Boppl app and accounting software.
