James Nye, Managing Director, Anglian Country Inns

The best support

“The support and service has been nothing short of exceptional. Although we are a smaller group than other clients of Zonal’s, we have never been made to feel any less important”

Alison Lynch, Systems and Procurement Manager, Incipio Group

The best reporting

“The level of detailed data we are able to access through Aztec is second to none. We have been able to drill down and identify everything from mistakes being made by staff, that when added up are costing the business, to the success (or not) of promotions.”

 Joe Cussens, Managing Director, Bath Pub Company

The most reliable

“To date, Zonal’s EPoS has been completely reliable and doesn’t fall down, which is such a comfort when managing peak holiday periods where we can serve up to 3,000 portions of seafood and fish & chips in a single day!”

Mat Prowse, Partner, Rockfish

Manage your entire product offering in one place. Complex products ranges with multiple portions and ingredients can be simply added and used across the EPoS system for ordering, deliveries, stock control and sales.


Gain total control over your pricing, either through a standard pricing structure for your entire estate, or with individual or multiple price bands for specific venues or areas. Save time by easily updating price changes, either in advance for automatic application or in bulk via importing changes.


Create bespoke promotional activities, no matter how simple or complex, whether it’s at an individual site level or across your entire estate. Sales data can then be fed into your marketing system, enabling you to monitor the results of each promotion.


Zonal EPoS offers a complete cash management and reporting solution that delivers real-time visibility of all transactions to help you assess your business performance, with tight integrations to a wide range of third-party accounting packages.


Reduce your holdings, minimise wastage, and cut costs. Our fully-integrated, comprehensive stock management solution comes as standard with Zonal’s EPoS, and is one of the most powerful stock management solutions available.


Overcome obstacles, identify bottlenecks and maximise your revenue with help from a robust suite of over 200 reports. Whether it’s on a per-site basis, or across your entire estate, get instant, detailed insights to help you make smarter business decisions.


Speed up service and streamline operations with customisable themes and designs, ensuring the right information is always available at the POS. Deliver menu planning, seasonal changes and special events by creating them in advance and scheduling their deployment.

Time & Attendance

Cut down on admin and better manage your team with an in-built staff management that lets you manage staff information, monitor payroll or even just create and share weekly rotas. You can also set sales targets and monitor performance, helping you to get the very best from your people.


Accept deposits at the time of booking to mitigate the financial impact of no-shows, and accurately track them in the POS. Create multiple configurations to capture booking details alongside the type of deposit, and easily gain a full view of taken, redeemed and outstanding deposits.
