Kounta POS Review
Kounta was founded in Sydney, Australia and has recently been acquired by Lightspeed, a Canadian company.
Kounta has a near zero learning curve. It’s designed to be easy to use and easy to learn, generally our clients who use Kounta will be proficient within 2-3 days of using the software. Kounta also provides extensive learning, including online video courses and regular masterclasses.
Kounta is highly customisable and can be customised to pretty much any hospitality setup (it even has a dark mode, which is perfect for Bars) It has an intuitive product editor, so adding, editing and modifying products is easy. It is 100% Cloud based, so you can change pricing, update inventory or add specials to your menu from anywhere in the world and have it synchronised on your POS within minutes.
Kounta has an included CRM module, although limited, it allows you to store information about your customers which can kick-start loyalty programs such as Marcello, Kitty or LOKE.
Kounta’s reporting is among the best in the industry. Real time reporting provides live sales and order data on the dashboard, while over 15 in-depth reports allows you to see all aspects of your business.
If you’re really a data nerd, Kounta Insights is the built in Business Intelligence tool that rivals Microsoft Power BI and Tableau (if you don’t use this software, think of them as Excel Pivot tables and visualisations on steroids). Kounta insights is bar and far the best reporting platform on any POS in Australia, and maybe even the world.
Print as many receipts you like, and regardless of your plan level as Kounta supports unlimited printers. You can specify which printer shall print for a specific products, which is ideal for large venues with multiple kitchens and kitchen areas.
Kounta supports a ton of Payment merchants, including WestPac, CBA’s Albert (not recommended), Tyro and SmartPay.
This brings us to the best feature of Kounta POS – it’s integration with world-class cloud software. Because Kounta is 100% Cloud based, it works with other Cloud based services like Xero, Deputy and even delivery partners like Uber. Compared to other POS, Kounta has the best integrations and API in its class.
