Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS)

Khaos Control's EPOS interface provides a straightforward, easy-to-use facility for retail sales to members of the general public. It is intended to complement, not replace, Khaos Control's extensive Sales Order functionality.

The manual is currently available as a PDF file and can usually be found in your "K:\KeystoneSoftwareUTILS\KCManuals\Add-ons\" folder; it may also be downloaded from this link File:EPOS.pdf.
