Gastrofix is now Lightspeed

The look has changed, but the ePOS remains the same.

Big news—Gastrofix is now Lightspeed.

Gastrofix was founded over a decade ago. Since then, we’ve helped thousands of customers from the hospitality industry digitalise and future-proof their businesses. Today, we're one of the leading ePOS providers in the German-speaking market.

Of course, our success story didn't stay a secret from the rest of the world. It wasn’t long before Lightspeed – the one-stop commerce platform for merchants around the world – caught wind of us. After many discussions, we realised that we're a perfect match. In January 2020, Lightspeed welcomed Gastrofix—with our modern ePOS technology and all of our employees—to the Lightspeed family.

What does that mean for you?

It’s business as usual, only better.

We're the same team, but now we have even more resources to support you and guide you to success. You may have noticed that the colours on your ePOS and cloud software have changed. Your ePOS system now looks even more sleek and modern, and we even got a new Lightspeed logo.

Most importantly, all the functionalities that you have used up to now remain the same.

What else happens?

More products and features.

Changes are implemented as regularly and smoothly as ever, so you don’t have to worry about learning to use a completely new point of sale. Your software will remain as robust and intuitive as we accelerate the release of new features and improvements. Stay tuned!

What happens with the name „Gastrofix“?

Gastrofix is now part of Lightspeed and with the development of our products our name and design will also evolve. You will see more and more of Lightspeed and less of Gastrofix. But the core of the product and our commitment to quality and customer service will never change. Gastrofix is entering a new phase and we want this to be reflected in our name.
