Ltd., (IDS), one of India’s few product software companies and a market leader in the hospitality solutions market with over 1,000 installations across 20 countries, today announced the launch of Fortune MobilePOS, a product which enables stewards in a restaurant (or any other F&B outlet) to take an order from the guest electronically on a hand-held wireless PDA device.
