I'm Gene Mosher, creator of the
ViewTouch POS trademark.
2011 is my 34th year in the POS business. I stand with a
worldwide network of Linux Point of Sale Specialists behind every
ViewTouch display. I
first devised kitchen printing in 1979, created the first graphic touchscreen POS
interface in 1986 and named it ViewTouch. The touchscreen interface
almost certainly looks familiar even if you've never actually seen it
before. The 'look and feel' of the copyrighted ViewTouch POS
interface has been copied by virtually every POS company throughout the
world. My ViewTouch interface has become the global de facto standard;
it's intuitive and easy to learn. Any
hospitality business in the world can afford the world's best, the
world's 'Original', Point of Sale.
The ViewTouch trademark applies to
the POS interface and to the community of point of sale and Linux
experts which I sponsor, a community which spans the globe.
This community is a network of dedicated professionals who share the
vision and the spirit of innovation that has inspired me since I first
began building restaurants and building information automation systems
nearly forty years ago. These Linux and POS experts share and are
enabled by all of the ViewTouch POS
resources and expertise accumulated across four decades.
They have pledged their efforts, with mine, to provide you
with top notch point of sale technology at a price that is readily
affordable. You may trust that the members of the ViewTouch community
around the globe understand the challenges facing hospitality
professionals and can offer solutions to meet them.
I proudly introduce
you to ViewTouch Point of Sale. On the following pages you'll
begin to find answers to many of your questions about how POS
technology can make your hospitality business easier and more
profitable to operate. Let's begin the tour, then.
