Cubit updates free POS software
South Africa-based Cubit Accounting today released a new version of its Cubit POS (point of sale) application.
The free and open source Cubit POS system can be run on any PC and operating platform – including Apple Macintosh, Linux and Windows. The latest version, version 2.0, of the Cubit POS also inter-operates with the majority of existing POS hardware, says Cubit CEO André Coetzee.
“The Cubit POS software is licensed under the BSD licence, meaning the application source code is freely available, belongs to everyone and can be modified by anyone without restrictions and without having to disclose the
new source code to anyone else. Anybody can also download the source code, recompile, re-brand it and sell it to anyone else,” says Coetzee.
Cubit POS can be customised to comply with the differing tax regimes around the world and is already successfully being used in both the United States and South Africa, says Coetzee. It can also accommodate hundreds of tills, so that businesses as small as the corner store and as big as a supermarket chain can make use of the system.
