  • ViewTouch is the world renowned, ORIGINAL Graphical Touchscreen Restaurant Point of Sale Interface, created in 1986.
    Gene Mosher created ViewTouch in 1986 and demonstrated his revolutionary interface to thousands at computer and restaurant shows worldwide, launching the era of graphical touch screen interfaces and the restaurant point of sale software industry.

  • ViewTouch source code is licensed under the Free Software Foundation's GNU public license, version 3 and is available as a Point of Sale software service.  Free Software means 'FREEDOM '. The principles behind Free Software go back to the early days of computing, and many people have fought long and hard to protect freedom in computing. ViewTouch source code is Freely Available at GitHub.  ViewTouch users enjoy the privilege and freedom of seeing, understanding and even enhancing the software source code that they depend upon, if they so choose.  As a world class, enterprise point of sale software solution, ViewTouch stands alone in making its source code freely available.

  • ViewTouch is the world's most versatile Mobile POS solution.  Our custom 'X' server transforms Android tablets into 'embedded display devices' to meet every Point of Sale requirement: as fixed POS displays, at tableside and as kitchen display terminals.  Android tablets of any size and any resolution integrate into POS systems with the ViewTouch 'X' server, freely downloadable here!.  ViewTouch tablets work much the way a TV works; they have only one job - to display the POS interface by following low level instructions passed across the network from a 6th generation Intel NUC iCore Skylake processor which runs the ViewTouch POS application.

  • Intel 64-bit, 14 nm process, quad core computer with M.2 PCIE NVMe storage, DDR4-2133 RAM, 802.11ac WiFi and BlueTooth 4.1!  An external SDXC (UHS-1, 104 MB/s) slot and Intel HD 520/540 graphics extend the versatility and the performance lead of Intel's  NUC computers.  No other Point of Sale vendor uses Intel's core i5 processing power to drive both POS displays and tablets, because only ViewTouch exploits the remote display capabilities of the X Window System.  No other POS vendor has X to throw POS display screens across the network to tablets.  Other vendors are limited by the processing power of the tablets themselves - but ViewTouch tablets rely on the Intel NUC's blazingly fast NVMe storage and DDR4-2133 RAM.

  • All ViewTouch touchscreens feature 'Edge to Edge Glass' and have maximum resistance to damage from spillage.

  • Debian GNU/Linux is the Linux distribution of choice for ViewTouch; it is supplemented by CUPS Modular Internet Printing, version 2.1 and the FireFox browser for management of your printing network.  Our payment processing partner is Leap PaymentsIncluded with ViewTouch at no extra charge is the LibreOffice productivity suite, applications which enhance the usefulness of your ViewTouch POS computer as a complete office solution: Writer, Calc, Presentation, Draw/Flowchart and Database front end.

  • You can use ViewTouch and all of its features without even knowing or caring what Linux is, but if you are on the other end of the scale we want you to know that ViewTouch POS software integrates everything you need: compiler, linker and libraries to spontaneously generate the latest executable file from ViewTouch source code available on the Internet. There is no need to edit ViewTouch source files to have and use them.

  • You can choose, however, to edit source code.  We recommend two editors: Atom and Lime, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE): Codelite or Light Table, and a debugger: GDB.
