POS Point of Sale

Back to Funtionality Page
  • Counter Sales or Point of Sale caters for retail, lay-by orders, workshop orders and supports multi terminal and multi branch.
  • POS orders can be identified as one of these five; Retail Counter Sale, Pickup from Warehouse, to be Delivered, Workshop order or laybys.
  • POS Orders can be taken as Workshop Orders for repair and service work. Customer required dates can be recorded; reference notes and instructions can be entered before printing a simple Workshop Job Sheet.
  • Lay-by orders (laybys) have lay-by periods, terms and progressive payments.
  • ‘On Account’ Sales option allows you to raise a POS Order and issue the goods immediately. The invoice is posted to the Customer’s Account for subsequent payment.
  • POS orders can be placed ‘on hold’ and a new order commenced.
  • New sale sign in option is available for retail staff with ‘opening’ cash. The Alternate operator facility allows supervisors to override a price for example.
  • Prices can be shown including tax or excluding tax in the POS screen and on the receipt or invoice printout.
  • Images, product messages and customer messages can be displayed on the POS screen at the time of POS order entry.
  • Quotations can be given within the point of sale screen. The main difference between a Quote and an Order is that a Quote doesn’t book stock out and a Quote can’t be paid for.
  • Ostendo POS has a simple mouse / keyboard / scanner interface designed for fast entry.
  • The Scanning Mode can be setup with Automatic Defaults such as Quantity equals 1.
  • Cash Drawer, scanner, receipt printer and pole display enabled.
  • Multiple barcodes per product eg serial numbers
  • Barcodes can be setup and defined for product attributes such as colour and size types of combinations

  • Cash-Drops covering office drops and expenses are handled. The Cash Drop function enables four key operations to be carried out during the course of the day-to-day activities
    - Cash Drop Out: A ‘Cash Drop (Out)’ is where monies are taken from the Till.
    - Cash Drop In: A ‘Cash Drop (In)’ is where the Till Float is being ‘topped up’ from the Office.
    - Pay Out: A ‘Pay (Out)’ is where a cash withdrawal has been made from the Till to purchase miscellaneous items or services (like Petty Cash).
    - Pay In: A ‘Pay (In)’ is where cash is added to the Till. This allows for return of Cash or Change from a previous Petty Cash withdrawal
