In January 2016 after growing demand we decided to offer support services directly to uniCenta oPOS users via subscription.
Our aim was to provide quality support services to business users ranging from development to support and more documentation for the uniCenta oPOS project.
Twelve months on we now look after over 500 subscribers who decided to invest in us to help achieve what we set out to do. With this much valued investment from our Customers uniCenta oPOS has gone from strength-to-strength and means the project:
- has seen 4 major releases
- enjoyed 8 monthly fix and enhancement updates
- enabled us to spend time crafting new user guides
- …and to start producing our new video series
- can contribute to the Amazon server, storage and bandwidth costs
- helped us pay for and implement pro’ features of our membership system
- can focus on key future development
- has responded to over 370 forum posts
“Free software” means software that respects users’ freedom and community. Roughly, it means that the users have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. Thus, “free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech,” not as in “free beer”. We sometimes call it “libre software” to show we do not mean it is gratis.Richard Stallman GNU
If helping us by way of a financial contribution is just not for you and you don’t want to support the uniCenta oPOS project then that’s no problem. You can continue to get the un-supported, less feature-rich uniCenta oPOS 3.9x series, and earlier versions, from the uniCenta oPOS Community project
uniCenta oPOS has always been free (per GNU GPL3 license) and open source from its very beginning. It still is.
