Unicenta - Free and open source point of sale software


CHA-CHA-CHA is a small independent owner-run specialist selling vintage clothing and homeware spanning the 20th century.

Located in the heart of Muswell Hill, London, England since 2004 CHA-CHA-CHA has built a loyal following from their Mews shop and their online store.

Previously, using pen and paper to track sales along with an existing troublesome, and expensive, PDQ was becoming problematic.

Time spent recording and analysing sales not only ate away at Ruth’s & Megan’s time, it was also leading to loss of business.
A solution needed to be found.

megan_ruthOrchachacha_quoteiginally a pilot site for uniCenta oPOS, running on a 10” tablet PC, with the posApps Digital Receipt plug-in and a wireless PaymentSense card payment terminal, Ruth & Megan chose to continue with the new system.

One of their reasons is that it has helped them improve customer service as they can now accompany visitors around their store with everything they need to finalise a sale to hand.

Another reason is to be able to have time to keep an eye on these shennanigans going on after hours…

There are other reasons too why CHA-CHA-CHA has chosen to continue with the uniCenta oPOS and posApps which include:

  • Hundreds of £’s year-on-year savings on card payment terminal rental
  • posApps real-time online analytics
  • No recurring monthly or annual licence fees for uniCenta oPOS
