Welcome to the Kobas Community! Here at Kobas, we understand our responsibility to provide a rock-solid venue till system and Cloud-based hospitality business management platforms. We strive to find a balance between ensuring your tills work even if your internet is down and giving you the ability to manage your business from anywhere in the cloud.

If your internet is down, it will send the information to the cloud when it reconnects. 

Top Tip: This information is available as a Handout which you can print for each of your venues.

Kobas in-venue top tips

Never turn off your EPoS server

This is either your server till, or the server computer. You need it on at all times in order to trade, and it may receive a software update at any time.
Keep your EPoS server connected to the internet at all times
Your EPoS server needs to be online to communicate to Kobas Cloud and to receive critical updates from time to time. 
Only use your fingers on your touchscreen tills
Using hard implements such as cards or utensils can damage the screens and stop them from functioning. 
Contact us before you move hardware or make changes to your network
Hardware configuration may become invalid if changes are made and this can stop equipment from functioning correctly
Your In-Venue network is separate to the Kobas system
Any network issues or questions should be directed to your internal IT Administrator. 
Your PDQs are separate to the Kobas EPoS system
Any issues or questions relating to PDQ terminals themselves should be directed to your PDQ payment provider
Need to change menus or settings?
If menus or settings are changed in Kobas Cloud, a Download Data must be performed on a till for your venue to receive the updates. Visit Admin > Download Data on any till to do this.
