4pos Held receipts

When you hold a sale on point of sale it allocates a number, and when you recall you will have a list of numbers, cant you change so as to put like customer name or table name.

The "saved sale" option is mainly intended for when you have rung up a sale & the customer either wants to fetch his wallet or go & pick up some more products.

So typically, there will only be 1 or 2 saved sales per till.

The cashier would know which slip belongs to which customer & can even retrieve it by number.

The same option is used when you have a "remote paypoint". In other words, the sales person will ring up the sale & then save it.

The cashier will then be able to simply scan the barcode on the slip that will retrieve the sale, all products & you can then even add products to the sale before finalising.

Remote paypoint in more detail....

The remote paypoint is intended for the following users :

1. A business where the sales persons are not handling / receiving cash. The individual terminals will be used for sales peersons to ring up the products that the cashier wishes to purchase. Once all items has been rung up, the sales person will "save" the sale. The receipt will be a receipt with a barcode of the sale number printed on the footer.
2. The customer can then proceed to the central cashier & present the receipt. The cashier will scan the barcode on the receipt & the sale will be retrieved. The cashier can now finalise the sale or even add other products to the sale prior to finalisation.

The config for ALL till points will be as attached :

This is obviously for 4POSScan & in the configuration for ALL POS pc's. (Ctrl-C)

The reverse can also be done :

4POS has a number of users that uses the same feature to receive cash (Small coins) from typically hawkers before their purchase.

The purpose is obviously to alleviate the time consuming task of counting coins at the cashier.

The central cash management kiosk will receive the coins or cash on entering the business. A receipt (Credit) will be issued for the amount that was received.

The customer will then pick all products required & proceed to the cashier. The cashier can then ring up the items & also scan the credit receipt. Eg. Purchases R5,000, credit = R4,000.

Due amount is R1,000

Brilliant!

Another application will be when you have a take-away / kiosk / coffee shop inside a supermarket.

You can now use 4POSScan or 4POSTouch to ring up the items at the take-away, finalise the sale by saving the sale.

The customer can now continue shopping with his / her take away & when done shopping, present the take away receipt to be rung up with the other items.

..... Clever...
