Resident Pro links to certain epos solutions so that you can billback charges from your restaurant and bar. It is important to note that Resident Pro does not link to every cash register and epos solution out there in today’s market. Epos links have been carefully selected, tried, and tested. Such compatible epos solutions can be purchased from dealers all around the uk.

Hotel Reception Cash Drawer
Reception Cash Drawer

Before we look at EPOS solutions for the bar and restaurant, let’s start by attaching a Posiflex Cash Drawer to the USB drive of your computer behind reception, to avoid cash being left around the desk.

Each time a financial transaction occurs on Resident Pro, the cash drawer opens, ready to put away the money, or the merchant copy of the credit card receipt.  A hidden slot compartment is useful for non-cash items such as stamps that you may wish to deposit without opening the drawer
