Sharp's POS software is configurable for many environments, from a single pub to a larger hospitality or retail chain. Furthermore it is has an easy to use operator interface and graphical table plan.
Sharp POS Software has been designed to ensure total compatibility with Sharp's PC based EPOS terminals and is the leading complete, single package EPoS solution on the market delivering superb functionality for today’s highpaced hospitality industry.

Meanwhile, customer comments and requests – for example: one steak, well-done, no sauce – can be passed through the system direct to the kitchen, rather than needing an operator to deliver them in person.
Each item can given up to 40 characters of text so that product descriptions can be as accurate as possible for precise customer information and to help minimise mistakes.
The ‘86 items function’ countdown feature enables any hospitality user to only sell the portions or stock that is available thus giving more accurate customer service and better stock control.

Sharp has partnered with TikTap to use innovative mobile technology to proactively increase the footfall of participating outlets in the UK by introducing a local offer and voucher incentive scheme.
Utilising mobile technology supplied by TikTap, which has been developed by the company behind Orange Wednesdays, local retailers/outlets in the town centre will be able to provide shoppers with instant offers and exclusive promotions redeemable in store via their mobile phones.
The TikTap technology is enabled via a unique pod, which is plugged into a retailer’s EPOS electronic till system. Consumers download the TikTap app, which stores details of all live offers in the area – users ‘Tik’ the ones that appeal. When they are in the outlet, they simply tap their mobile phones over the pod to redeem the offer, bridging the gap between online, mobile and High Street shopping.
