The Next Gen POS System

GASTROFIX GmbH, headquartered in Berlin, was founded in 2011 and currently employs 140 people. With over 8,000 customers, the iPad cash register system of the same name is one of the most successful in Europe. The cloud-based POS platform for digitizing the hospitality industry is fully offline capable and therefore particularly fail-safe. Thanks to its versatile additional modules such as branch administration, cash book or customer database, it is also suitable for medium-sized and large companies in the restaurant and hotel industry. With GASTROFIX, the cash register becomes a digital control centre for efficient operation. Since 2020 GASTROFIX GmbH belongs to the listed company Lightspeed POS Inc.
