Kounta POS

Kounta is a mid range Australian POS system aimed at hospitality, especially QSR. Its main competitors are Nobly or TouchBistro.

Pricing

$120 per site (which can have multiple tills). That’s US dollars, so expect the price to fluctuate.

What makes Kounta unique?

If you really know your technology, then Kounta is easy to customise – they have open APIs which a good developer could attune to exactly your needs.

Compatibility

Kounta can work with any Apple, Windows, Android, or Linux device. For payments, it integrates with SumUp or iZettle. Kounta can also integrate with Xero or Quickbooks. All the hardware shown here will work with Kounta.

Service

Kounta has 24/7 phone support – but you may be calling Australia (via a UK number!)

Getting started

Instead of a trial, it’s possible to set up a free “Lite” account which allows 10 transactions a day. Then, if you like it, you can upgrade to the full package.

great/easy/mostly simple

Pros

asy to set up, basic steps guides to help you along. Adding photos of products is a great tool to help the staff learn where items are in the till.

Cons

Having to wait for a call back - sometimes we need to troubleshoot/fix our problems straight away. booking a call is sometimes for us inconvenient. Cash out with inter grated eftpos is too complicated and does not simplify it for my staff.

Lots of features to make the day to day challenges easier

Pros

Bump screen feature .is quiet good as it reduces the need to print paper.If we can remove the need to print totally it will be brilliant.

Cons

That it still makes us print lot of dockets for different things whereas it should be reduced to bump screen.

Does mostly what I need and the reports are good at a glance.

Pros

It is pretty easy to use? The reports are easily generated. The ability to add and delete products and group them makes the system simple to navigate.

Cons

Kounta will not connect to printers other than Epsom, therefore I can't print! Having to write orders when I have a perfectly good printer sat next to the register is frustrating.

It is the only cloud based pos for hospitality I think we could use and run our business

Pros

The sales transaction from start to checkout is great. The printing of customer orders in multiple locations plus the kitchen. Modifier are also the best in the market.

Cons

Scales and scanner integration for use with a retail store. Scales can't be and scanner with Windows is clunky

Kounta has catapulted our Maleny Bowls Club into the 21st century literally overnight.

Pros

Ease of use for our volunteers has been a godsend. Back of house statistics, reporting and stock control make life so easy for our Providore and Treasurer. We now have mobile fingertip management of all aspects of our operations which is sensational. Within 14 days of introduction from our previous "cash only" operations we are exceeding 40% of transactions being on EFTPOS with functions running over 90%.
