Thank you for choosing LimeOrder Point Of Sale Software for your business.
In this Quick Start Guide, we will explain the key requirements you need to know and the steps you need to take to start selling your products.
LimeOrder consists of two major apps: the POS-Admin and POS App.
The POS-Admin is the back end of the system, and it allows you to define and organize how you want to present your business information to your clients.
In the POS-Admin, you can define your Stores, Products, Modifiers, Cash Accounts, Credit Cards, Merchant Accounts, Taxation, Ordering Devices, Kitchen printers, Shifts, User, Reports, Business Intelligence Analytics and other features that you need to place orders in the POS App.
Note: Only you and the admins authorized by you can access all the information and analysis of the whole business.
The POS-Admin app has many features that are accessible through the side menu shown in red below:
For your simplicity, we have designed a form named “Easy” that includes two states: “Easy Setup” & “Easy Access.”
“Easy Setup” includes the shortcuts to important forms that need to be set up when you want to set up the system.
“Easy Access” is like “Easy Setup,” It has more shortcuts and is designed for daily usage.
You can switch between “Easy Setup” & “Easy Access” at the top of the form by changing the switch box.
As you can see below, you can access the “items” form from the left-side menu and also from the “Easy” form that is both marked by blue below:
In order to find your desired menu item in the side menu, instead of opening each node, you can easily type the name on the search box on top of the Side Menu and the system will show you all the available menu items that have your specific search term. For instance, if you are looking for the page to define “User”, just enter the word “User” in the search bar and the system will show you all the menu items that are related to “User”.
The POS App is the Point Of Sale software used by users to place orders, make purchases, or manage expenses in the system.
After login into POS App, you will see the home page, and you can select the features by selecting the appropriate buttons.
You can also access the side menu that includes the other features like “Device settings,” etc. that you can activate by selecting the three green bars shown in blue here:
The side menu is shown on the left side of the form shown below:
