InfoGenesis POS easily manages any combination of food, beverage and retail services, and it can be deployed on-site or as a Software-as-a-Service solution.

DataMagine is a document management system that transforms paper records into electronic images that are then archived for on-demand access.

Features include electronic document routing, instant data delivery, individual permission levels and remote data access. Optional modules include electronic registration, signature capture and ID scanning.
