Getting started

We’re delighted to announce our new TrekkSoft mobile App - the mPOS. It is now available in the Play Store and App Store.

What’s new about the mPOS?

Better user experience

We added a couple of things that improve the overall user experience: 

  • Easy navigation

Easily navigate between the upper menu (Availabilities, Shop Items, Activities, Bookings, Checkout) and the menu in each section by swiping to the right side. Use also the filter options to limit your search to specific selections.

  • Aligned to the Point of Sale-Desk

The mPOS is more aligned to our existing Point of Sale Desk (POS) in terms of design and functionalities. This gives us the advantage to release new features for the Point of Sale and shortly afterward as well for the mPOS.  

  • Visuals

We added pictures for activities, shop items, and add-ons to illustrate In the booking part you an easy search for basket ID, user details, or activity title

  • Fewer clicks

Instead of opening every action in a new window, the mPOS is now using more dropdown menus so you stay on the same page to click a certain action (e.g. adding guests). Only for more complex actions, e.g. adding add-ons, we open a new window.

Availabilities

This is the fastest way within the app to make a booking. 

To fully get the advantage of this functionality, you should have a TrekkSoft card reader nearby, this way you won't have to type CC information manually.

Rebook items and guests

In the mPOS, you can now easily rebook booking items as well as single guests. A huge time saver is that, if you have a booking with 2 adults and 2 children, you don’t have to rebook those per price category, you can simply just rebook the whole basket and it will take over the specific price categories for the new date.

Working with Credit card reader and Printers

In our new mobile app mPOS, we don't have the settings option like the old one, but normally you just need to turn on the Bluetooth in the printer and then pair from the device you are using with the app.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE

There are 2 devices working currently with the mPOS,  iMixPay-BL (CCReader) and StarIO (Printer).
