Floreant POS

Free Open Source Point of Sale for Restaurants

Simplify Order management, Automate kitchen and Keep control of cash. Its easy to learn and supports wide range of hardware. Runs in Windows, Linux, Mac and Java supported Tablets.




Floreant POS started its journey in 2008 when Dennys Restaurant in Oneonta, NY hired our team for upgrading their database. There we proposed a client server architecture that would be cloud compatible, touch screen friendly and integrates industry standard features. In latin "Floreant" means to flourish - to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way. Open source was the way to go. In 2010 our 1.0_2 release received huge appreciation and then in last year we extended it to embrace commercial plugins. Floreant is more than just a POS. Its a total hospitality solution that facilitates small cafes where simplicity matters, in dine-in where table operation is essential and in big chains where multi-user and multi-hosted operations is imporant. Although designed for hospitality business it has been used successfuly in retails and groceries. We have customized free for social welfare projects. Universities use it for research projects, loyality companies customize it as training system and its symbol of innovation. We saw people using it for venue management, some food delivery people installed in Java tablets for mobile operation. We have been known as the most popular POS for restaurants with more than 25,000 installation in 20 languages in 35 countries
