Kitchen Display Systems

What Does A Kitchen Display Do?

Kitchen Video Monitors (KVMs) are connected to a Kitchen Display System (KDS) controller.   The controller talks to FreePOS and displays orders on the screen(s).  Typically, the KDS controllers are installed to reduce paper usage in the kitchen and to better organize prep chits.

FreePOS, when registered, comes with a free touch screen based KDS application that can run on any Windows 98 or better computer.

After an order is displayed, it may be printed or bumped.  Bumping is the process of deleting the order from the screen's work area.

For more advanced functionality, FreePOS has drivers to feed the MicroPlus MPad and MPad+ KDS controllers.   These powerful KDS controllers are bump bar based and offer industrial spill proof hardware.
