What is Tabby SL?
Tabby SL has grown up - read about WinTabby Here!
Tabby SL is a ‘private web’ multi-user POS System, embedded in a small router-like device that can fit in your hand.
Tabby is designed for Hospitality and General Retail businesses. Tabby comes loaded with a generic data set already programmed for Australian requirements. You can just follow that setup to finish the programming but if you find it a bit too daunting we can program it for you. There is one hour of training at our offices included.
Which device works best with Tabby?
Any device with most modern browser like Chrome, Firefox, Opera, IE or Edge (and most others) can use Tabby. Tabby has two screen orientations, one landscape for tablets and one portrait for phones or ‘phablets’. You can also change the layout, move buttons around, change the appearance. iPad users can use Safari however we recommend Chrome for IOS as Safari won’t work with Tyro EFTPOS.
We recommend you have at least one Windows PC or tablet that you can connect to Tabby. The Tabby utility programs need a Windows computer - these programs are used for backups and device updates. You can use any PC or Mac, iPad or Android tablet or phone to program and operate Tabby but we can only provide remote support through Windows devices and Macs, not iPad or Android tablets. We have a suitable Windows POS tablet in the TabbyStore.
How Many Terminals Can I Have?
Tabby supports up to eight terminals using Tabby simultaneously. When you buy Tabby it comes with a licence for two terminals and you can buy expansions two terminals at a time. You can use different types of terminals from day to day. You can have up to four printers on your Tabby network and these can be Receipt or Kitchen printers and can operate cash drawers as well.
Can I Use Tabby Multisite?
Yes you can. Tabby is a network device and you can connect to it over almost any network. If you get disconnected, when you login again you just pick up your session where you left off. You can do this with most modern internet routers by setting up a ‘Virtual Private Network’ that securely connects the sites together. Then you are all on one big private network. Of course you need internet at all sites to do this AND you still can’t have more than the maximum number of devices, printers and cash drawers on one Tabby.
Where Is My Data?
Your data is stored inside Tabby on an internal SD card. You can just unplug Tabby and take it home or you can back it up with the utility software. Your data never leaves Tabby, is not stored on the internet anywhere - it’s yours!
What about integrated EFTPOS?
Tyro EFTPOS integration is now available for Tabby. You can of course process EFTPOS standalone without Tyro. Tyro is internet connected so Tabby will need internet to use it.
What about Updates and Support?
Tabby updates will be advised on this website as they become available. Tabby is similarly featured to other Cloud POS’ and is supplied and supported along similar lines. You can subscribe to a support plan or you can PAYG or you can DIY. There is a full manual available to you. The Support Forum is here and as a guest you can ask specific questions, as a Tabby owner you will have access to the User Forums. You will be able to purchase support plans at the TabbyStore.
