No, the bar point of sale software contains all you need to get up and running. To run the music functionality of the software, all you need is Windows Media Player, which is available free from Microsoft.

24/7 phone and email support from our US based POS tech support department and software updates are included for one year. You can optionally renew support/udpates each year after for $99 a year (or $9 a month).
What is a station license and how many do I need?
Station licenses are determined based on the number of POS stations (computers) that will be connected to the database at one time. So you will need a station license for each work station that you will be using at the same time. Once installed on a station, there is no limit to the number of servers that can be cashed in. Additional station licenses can be purchased initially or added later as your business grows.
Do I need a station license for my backoffice computer?
That depends. Pricing is based on the number of workstations connected to the database, at one time. The POS software uses SQL Server Express, which in itself does not count as a station. Therefore, if you do not purchase a station license for the backoffice, you can still run the server off of it. However, if you wish to check sales or do setup from the backoffice computer, you will need to either purchase another station license or simply shut down the POS software on another computer. Basically, if you want to run the POS software on the backoffice only after hours or when one of your other workstations is turned off, you will not need to purchase a license for your backoffice computer.
Do I need to have a network to run the bar point of sale software?
No, to use the bar POS software on just one computer you do not need to have a network setup. However, if you are running multiple stations you will need to have them connected either wirelessly or with an ethernet cable based system.
Do I need to install the database server on all cash register stations?
No, the server portion of the bar POS software only needs to be installed on one computer on the network. You can install the server on any machine, however when sharing data you'll want all the stations to point to one computer designated as the database server. This can be selected on start up. Just select the computer and database name, from the choose database screen. Although the database server portion can be run from any computer on the network, it is recommended that you run it from a backoffice computer and not a waitstaff workstation.
I have multiple stations, how should I setup my network?
To setup a Windows network to be able to share the software database, you want to do a few things. First, make sure all computers are on the same workgroup. Second, setup all the computers with the same login name and password and make sure those accounts have administrative rights. Third, make sure you are not running any antivirus programs that would block your computers from seeing SQL Server on the shared database computer.
Is the bar POS software PCI compliant?
Yes. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a worldwide information security standard defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council. The standard was created to help payment card industry organizations that process card payments prevent credit card fraud through increased controls around data and its exposure to compromise. The standard applies to all organizations that hold, process, or exchange cardholder information from any card branded with the logo of one of the card brands.
Do I need to be online to run the bar point of sale software?
No, you do not need to be online to use the bar POS software. However, if you are using the credit card functionality, you will need some sort of internet connection. This connection can be anything at all including modem.
