The integration syncs your menus. Any time you click the Sync button in the menu section in SO it will add any new menu items added to Epos Now. However, it does not delete menus even if they were deleted in Epos. To delete menu items in SimpleOrder you have to disconnect. See last section of this article. 

Please contact your account manager or info@simpleorder.com to ask for Epos Now to be enabled as an option on your account.
