Ansar Khan was selected as one of the Forbes' All-Star Student Entrepreneurs for 2012.

Ansar Khan, co-founder of Refulgent Software, has been chosen as one of Forbes’ All-Star Student Entrepreneurs. Two years ago, Ansar and his cofounder, James O’Leary, began developing Ambur, an iPad point of sale (POS) system. It’s a fully functional POS solution for the foodservice industry, allowing servers to send guests’ orders directly from the table to the kitchen with only a few taps on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.

Ambur launched in the App Store in April 2011, and has since made its way from coast to coast in the United States and into 16 other countries across the globe. With hundreds of clients, the company works out of offices in the University at Buffalo Technology Incubator, and currently employs nine people.

James was studying economics at the University at Buffalo, while working at Ansar's family's restaurant. Fed up with the inefficiencies of traditional POS systems, he taught himself to program so he could build something better on Apple's revolutionary iOS platform. With Ansar's support and feedback, soon after the release of Apple's iPad, they had a solution up and running. Once it was fully tested at Kabab and Curry, the next phase began: sharing their solution with other restaurants. That’s when Ambur, a POS solution for the food service industry, was created.

Ambur runs on all Apple touch devices (iPad/iPod/iPhone) to make sure the restaurant staff always has access to the point of sale system, and can do things such as take orders and run credit cards, directly at the customer's table.

Ambur’s easy to use interface makes it a breeze to use for servers and managers, whether they’re taking orders, recording inventory or running coupons. In addition to is it's ease of use, it's flexible enough to for a single terminal street-side shop in Puerto Rico, or for a 10 terminal fine dining restaurant in Raleigh.
