Features: Employee Permissions

Amigo Pos 8 includes granular permissions-based security that enables users to have multiple job types, each with its own permissions. The most restrictive security level is TIME CLOCK ONLY, where is user is not authorized to access any screen other than the time clock. On the other hand, a superuser may access any screen from any terminal.
