Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Kounta have partnered to add a new point of sale app to the former’s Albert EFTPOS tablet. Hospitality businesses using Kounta on Albert can now accept payments, manage tables, take customer orders, split bills and update inventory levels at the same time, from one device. The solution also integrates with customer loyalty, accounting, inventory, rostering and payroll applications.

Nick Cloete, Kounta Founder, comments: “As it stands, existing legacy PoS systems limit the movement of retail and hospitality staff. They have to complete orders and payments at static computer and EFTPOS payment stations – a system that’s now extremely outdated and not suited to the modern customer. In contrast, businesses that adopt Kounta on Albert will have the freedom of completing transactions including checkout, table management and splitting bills on-the-go, as well as more easily managing stock levels. They’ll also have access to immediate business insights, reporting and assistance through our reconciliation function and CommBank’s Daily IQ service. A business owner can access store figures and results in real time while sitting on the couch at home. And if internet connection is lost, Kounta will continue to operate and auto-update figures in the cloud once back online.”
