Running the Desktop POS App

The Desktop Point of Sale (POS) application is a version of the software that does not require an internet connection, except when initially setting up the account data retrieval and later when synchronizing the data to export it to the cloud account.

Desktop App

Daftra software provides a copy of the POS application that can be installed and operated on a computer’s operating system without the need for a constant internet connection.

The desktop application helps to generate sales invoices for clients even when there is no internet connection and retains invoice data and inventory movements until the internet connection is restored, allowing synchronization with the main cloud account in the software.
