Supercharge your supermarkets with an innovative and agile grocery POS system.
Today’s perfect grocery store point of sale and retail management solution is full-featured, speedy, and reliable. Supermarkets need a POS solution that is seamless, running on grocery POS software that is fully-connected to the rest of the store.
Cash registers must do more than print receipts and hold cash. The perfect POS system talks to inventory, loyalty, analytics, and accounting. Grocery stores carry tens of thousands of products: fruits and vegetables, meats, breads, and dairy. Keeping track of product volume and sales data will maximize profit and help avoid spoilage, shrink, and stock-outs.
When a grocer goes with CATAPULT point of sale, all of this is possible. We built CATAPULT to streamline supermarket operations, cut costs, grow grocer’s profits, and maximize efficiency.
K-VA-T Launches the Grocery Industry’s First Unified Point of Sale System

It is a must-have for all grocery stores in today’s high-paced and competitive markets.
