    The Simphony Transaction Services (TS) API is a web service that helps integrate a third-party application with the Simphony Point-Of-Sale (POS) system. It leverages core business functionalities of the Simphony POS and exposes them via web methods for third-party integration. This web service provides methods to perform the following POS operations.

    • Calculate total amounts of a transaction
    • Create a guest check for a transaction in the Simphony POS database
    • Add one or more items, such as menu, discount, service charge, tender, and so on to any existing open guest check
    • Void all items of an open guest check
    • Retrieve a summary of all open guest checks from a specific or all revenue centers of a property
    • Retrieve a printed version of a guest check (print receipt for a guest check)

    All guest checks posted via the Simphony Transaction Services API can be opened with the POS client user interface, which is configured to run on any workstation from the same property. The following are sample business scenarios in which the Simphony Transaction Services API can be used to integrate a third-party application with the Simphony POS:

    • Web or Native App Ordering
    • Kiosk
    • Table Ordering
    • Aggregators

    • Import and export data programmatically
