New functions and updates in the bluepos® system
With the version jump to bluepos® 2.3.0, many useful functions for retail and gastronomy have found their way into our POS software again. With bluepos®, you can now manage label printing directly from your cash register, use the convenient invoice dispatch by e-mail or simply book overpayments as tips, if desired.
With this version, we are also particularly pleased about the connection to the SCHULTES my.bluepos platform, which will be launched shortly. The optional connection of a cash register to the my.bluepos® Cloud will offer all bluepos® users a variety of new options for setting up digital services and interfaces in the future. These include, for example, the provision of digital receipts (e.bon) or the mobile retrieval of sales data via the Internet (reporting app).
With our software maintenance you always stay up to date and can install the new bluepos® version directly.
