We welcome the Zollanvari Group of companies world wide (Iran, Switzerland,Germany and USA - to our .Net POS Software. Special changes have been made to cater for tracking their unique and exquisite one of made rugs . . A quote from their web site : “In an age when much of the world¹s population was still dressing in sheepskins, the Persians were developing an industry - an amalgam of art, craft and science - which has amazed and fascinated all, from the royalty of every realm, to the most fashion conscious afficionados in every walk of life. . . .

We at CompuByte like uniqueness and the ideals of perfection; most definitely our offices will adorn their rugs . .

We welcome the Al-Baik Group of Companies and all their current and new stores; who will be using our .Net version of the software for their outlets. Newest store opened in Lenasia (Signer Terrace) - go and visit them for the tastiest chicken you ever will taste . Ashraf Jamal of Inamandla is doing all their software and hardware support ; if you require more info on how takeaway stores can also use CompuByte feel free to contact him through his website :-

Please also note Ashraf is also authorized to install CompuByte software in the Gauteng region.

New Parameters Added:-

220 – You can now insert all the command line parameters to run before the CompuByte POS software is executed. Example: NET USE F: \\\C all command must be separated by |

221 - You can directly link the branch number to an account number when you sending stock to branches . This helps in quickly sending stock to branches from the PLU prompt. All you do is insert a * (star) and then the branch number and immediately the document would be prepared for transfer to a branch.

222 - Works similar to 221 but is used at the branch when they receiving the stock by pressing the F7 key ; so in this case you just insert what account number(creditors) where the stock is coming from.
To see the efficiency and speed of use and the manner in which this works ; visit DADA’s Shoes in Marabastad – Pretoria, they have also all their stocks linked with their web cams to the picture database.

223 – You can set no label printing as a default when receiving goods.

224 – You can now by default set the number of copies to print for any document. Nice for lay buys when you need to auto choose two or three documents. Please note we also have modified parameter 212 so that if you insert a C it will auto print the document without prompting for a print.

For takeaway outlets we now have parameter 217 to only print kitchen items to be prepared and also activated the F10 key which won’t print to the kitchen for items like drinks etc. The stk-par.tak and stk-dis.tak files must be copied into the \programs and \ram directory as STK-PAR and STK-PAR. (no .tak extension) for the take away module to be activated (this must only be done once and when a new installation is done)
