POS Integrations

What's the Difference?

Sales Integrations involve optimizing sales-related processes like sales forecast (e.g., SPLH), Operations Overview, Tip Pooling by sales, and more. Here are POS integrations that only support sales data:

Lightspeed POS (K-series)
Silverware POS
Clover POS

Labor Integrations cover any aspect where you'd like to track and manage employee work hours. They are vital for monitoring workforce productivity, scheduling, and payroll management. To get started, determine whether your Employees will be punching in from your POS system, or directly with 7punches.

Pro Tip! If your POS system doesn't support a way for you to track labor data, look no further with 7punches (complimentary with your 7shifts account)!

Keep track of your teams' time and attendance with our integrated time clocking app that you can use anywhere. 7punches is your central hub for labor data and is a convenient solution for accurately recording worked hours. By using 7punches, you establish a reliable source of truth that seamlessly integrates with the 7shifts ecosystem (such as reports, tip pooling, payroll processing, and tip payouts).
