Vision

To be the most innovative success-driving and growth-accelerating platform in retail tech.

Mission

Conquer the moment of exchange - physical or virtual - by designing and building a unique merchant-centric point of sale experience; satisfying end customers and fueling apps to create a value-driven ecosystem for a borderless network of merchants.

Background

Inspiration

During previous endeavor with iFood. There was a struggle with point of sale systems, could not fully automate the process, reduce overheads, eliminate wrongly handled orders nor further enhance the customer experience. Legacy POS systems in the region are way outdated, complex and expensive. The point-of-sale is the core of a customer-merchant interaction and transaction.

History


We wrote the first line of code in April 2016. We had our first MVP installed in June at a restaurant in Amman. Then we tested the product for 2 months and August 1st was the first official operational day at POSRocket.
We had a 30sqm room and team ready, and less than a month later, we had our first paying client. Then we opened our offices in Egypt in December 2016 and we have been expanding eversince.
