The Lightspeed story

Almost everyone at Lightspeed is from hospitality – most of us have either worked in venues before or ran our own. Along with the rewards, we understand the frustrations. And so does our platform. Lightspeed POS is engineered to solve real-life problems with features inspired by hands-on industry experience.


Are Kounta and Lightspeed the same company?

Yes, Kounta is now a part of Lightspeed. Our commitment to the hospitality community remains unchanged, as does our local team of passionate hospitality experts.

Will there be any changes to Kounta’s pricing?

No, Kounta becoming a part of Lightspeed will not impact the pricing of our POS plans. In fact, with more resources, we’ll be able to roll out features at an even faster pace.

Will I still be able to integrate Lightspeed POS with my business tools?

Yes. There are no changes to our integrations so you can integrate Lightspeed POS with your favourite business tools (Xero, MYOB, etc.) at no additional costs
