Version 8.0 - Limited Release

About Our Limited Release Program:

Once a new version has undergone beta testing with a number of sites, we designate it as available in "Limited Release".  This means we will be updating more clients to this version who desire a particular feature or fix.  After a few weeks of more expansive use, this version will be designated as our current gold release.

New Features:

Watch a video overview of the new features in Version 8.0!



Thr!ve Rear Customer Display with Tips & Receipt Option:  
Enhance your customer's experience with the Thr!ve rear customer display, which will show the order as its rung up, display promotional graphics, and allow customers to sign, add a tip, and request a receipt on an iPad mini attached to your workstation.     We've enhanced this feature to include the tip options and receipt choice.    Read More.


Thr!ve On Screen Signature Overhaul with Tips, Email and Receipt Option:   Not sure if you want a separate display?  You can also activate the on screen signature so customers can sign and add a tip right on the same table that your server or cashier uses.   Read More.



New Vantiv (WorldPay) "Element" / triPOS EMV Integration:   
We have integrated Thr!ve Payments, which is all new credit card processing code, to use the Vantiv Element gateway / triPOS EMV solution.  This offers EMV processing for our Vantiv and certain other merchant platforms. 

Existing Vantiv merchants who wish to switch to this integration need to obtain new merchant credentials for this platform, and purchase EMV devices or new Element encrypted swipes.   Please see our supported credit processors page for current info on which processors are supported.  

Some of the features of this integration include: 
  • EMV integration with the Ingenico IPP320 device.   This is an ethernet device.
  • This device also supports Google Pay / Apple Pay
  • Choose to decline on AVS or CVV mismatch. Configure settings separately for POS and Online orders.
  • A new credit batch screen & credit settings screen accessible via "Thr!ve Manager" link.
  • Deferred orders will now be pre-authed for $1 at the time of the order, and the card will be tokenized. This ensures a valid card. When the order goes live, it will pre-auth for the order amount. The $1 pre-auth will be voided.  
  • With this integration only, if "Use credit data in deposit" is on, closing the batch will automatically post a "Midday" deposit for the credit totals. Credit will no longer appear on the End of Day deposit screen. This simplifies the end of day deposit process and better reflects the actual deposits to your bank accounts.  
Security Enhancements
  • A new Administrative password is now necessary to access certain backend areas such as credit card settings.  This is a secure password that meets PCI requirements.  Read More
  • User login passcodes will now be stored encrypted.
  • Added an input validation filter.  The system will attempt to detect credit card data added to messages, notes, etc and prevent it from saving. We also are preventing execution of scripts.
  • SSL in use on internal network traffic.
Pay Tips function in Options Screen. 
  • When orders are cashed out at the register and a tip is added, you now have the option to pay those tips out at any time to the server.  
  • Choose from a list of employees with total tips owed, or from a list of tickets, select one or more to pay. 
  • This allows you to pay out from any register, it does not have to be the one that the order was closed to. 
  • Read more about this feature.


Reorder feature (Duplicate Item).   Once an item is on the virtual ticket, click the 3 dots on the right to bring up the description pop up, this has a "Duplicate item" button. This makes it easy to reorder complicated items. Read More



Date and time formats are now standardized.  Certain date/time displays that were previously in 24 hour time are now standard.

Enhanced Paid Out workflow so that estimated amount is not required. You can now immediately save an actual amount and avoid the reconcile step. Paid in / Out will now default to the register you are on.

Countdown will now update Thr!ve Online, making an item out of stock when countdown goes to 0.  Resetting countdown quantity will eliminate the out of stock in Thr!ve Online.  Orders submitted from Thr!ve Online will reduce the countdown value. Read More

Added $ to the Revenue Center chart in Server Details (was previously just %)

Settling Online Pickups:   For locations that use server banking, "settling" an online pick up order will automatically transfer ownership to the server so they can be part of the server close.  This will avoid having online pickups in a "stuck" settled state. (Ticket will still say "online" for the server, but will show up in the server details / close for the server that settled the order)

Added a link to Full Review | Undo Settle from Driver Details to improve efficiency when an order needs to be changed.


Enhanced workflow changing from a Bar Tab to a table. You'll now be prompted to close out or clear the tab before changing, as Table order type does not support tabs.

Order Screen Customer Address - the Order Screen list has an arrow next to the customer name so you can expand the list to show the customer address for delivery orders


Driver Mobile Phone # is now displayed at the top of the driver status screen.



Total # of deliveries pending and in process is now displayed in badges on the bottom icons of the dispatch screen.



Delivery In Process map will now auto refresh every 30 seconds to show updated data without having to reload the screen.

New Feature:   3rd Party Online Ordering Pricing Scheme
Because of the high prices of 3rd party online ordering sites like UberEats or GrubHub, restaurant owners sometimes want to charge more on those sites.  You can now configure which pricing scheme to use for 3rd party online orders by going to Config > Items > Alternative Pricing.  If the order does not specify a different pricing scheme, this is the scheme that will be saved for that order. We've enhanced the XML export to include this scheme ID, and 3rd parties can now submit a pricing scheme ID with their order, which will be honored regardless of this setting. This does NOT affect LetsGet orders, but will affect all other 3rd party orders such as Chowly.    Read more about Pricing Schemes.
