Orca BOS & Orca Lite - POS Solutions For F&B Businesses
Now here’s a good POS system designed to cater for micro businesses and small outlets to get off the ground running. The food and beverage business is really too fast paced, hence it is always good to be able to get the business up and running, especially in terms of point of sales system. I was at CAFE Malaysia 2018 the other day when Orca’s booth piqued my interest. Read up more about it below.

At the CAFE Malaysia event, Dr Koh Wee Lit, the owner of local company Red Hare Studios that developed the Orca BOS was at the booth. It’s good he’s there, as many questions I had for this Point-of-Sale (POS) system were answered. Dr Koh Wee Lit is also the Chief Technology Officer of Singapore-based Habitat Blue, which has taken over the sales and development of Orca.

Orca BOS - iOS Based Business Operating System
First let’s talk about the very comprehensive Orca BOS. While chatting with Dr Koh at their booth in CAFE Malaysia, I got to know there’s a huge challenge in the F&B industry to ensure day-to-day operations run without a hitch. An integrated BOS goes a long way in making everything way smoother. Each of the tablet-based Point of Sale (POS) station have very intuitive graphical user interface, making it very easy to use.

Monthly subscriptions start from RM275 for 3 app systems per month. Not only does the system help in tracking orders to and from the system, generating receipts, it also offers inventory tracing and stock management, reports modules for generating product mix and sales information. How comprehensive is that! I’m impressed! Refer to picture below on their packages.

For those who requires a simpler system, there’s the Orca Lite – an affordable Android-based All-in-one POS solution that targets small F&B stays, food-trucks and micro businesses. This solution would cater to the smaller outlets who are just starting out, and may have a lower budget to invest in their POS system. It’s still good, though not as feature packed as the Orca BOS
