Lodgit TSE Connection
Lodgit Update 2.4.1 Enables TSE Connection

Version 2.4.1 of Lodgit Desk hotel software was released today. Our software now offers you the ability to connect to a certified Technical Safety Equipment (TSE) as an optional additional module. The TSE, which is required in Germany, communicates with Lodgit Desk for each business transaction, creates signed receipts and saves this data so that it can be evaluated in a later audit by the tax office (e.g. tax audit or cash check).
