nTPV Technology

nTPV is the first ever GPL management and POS system for hospitality enviroment developed and running on Linux. Based upon distributed computing it avoids single points of failure through a communications system that uses DCOP, XMLRPC and XML. nTPV modular design makes program enhancing and features addition an easy task. The application core, simplified to the maximum, guarantees a robust and reliable behavior. Everything in nTPV is high technology. From the system communications, secured by ipsec, to fingerprint recognition for users an expert engineers team has made it a reality: technology at the service of hospitality.


Every business has different needs. To solve all the requirements without bloating the application with useless features, nTPV modularity allows each situation to be addressed with the parts of the application that are useful.

Distributed ticket printing module

This module is a basic feature of nTPV and is usually installed along with it. It communicates with any ticket printer that uses the Epson ESC/POS printing language.

Reconocimiento Biometrico

Fingerprint recognition module

This is a state of the art module. Along with a Biometrika fingerprint scanner, it matches every operation with its author. No way to cheat in other person's name.

Reporting module

One of the biggest advantages of a POS system is the detailed reports that can be obtained from the database. With this module, gaining business control is at the fingertip. With just one touch on the screen, the system generates a complete and detailed report of sales, products usage, waiter productivity or a price list of all the products and their options.

Ordering and tables management module

In some hospitality business like restaurants, a POS system must be able to manage tables and keep the bill until the costumer pays it. nTPV has an ordering and tables management module that not only has table control, but also allows the user to enter a descriptive name in the ordering, like a VIP user name and keep track of it. 

Backup and import/export module

Technology must be kept simple. With that idea in mind, importing and exporting data from the system, like product logos, sales data or reports or doing a database backup is as easy as pluging an USB memory stick in the POS and touching a button on the screen.
