Foreign Currency CheckOut:

New Additions and Operational changes:

  • When Discounts have been applied to a Tab/ Item, it first had to be removed before the quantity of the item could be adjusted – The discount will now automatically be removed, and quantity can be changed much more efficiently.
  • Account Balance now shows on the Account Receipts after payment has been processed and Invoice is printed.
  • GOPM calls (such as SnapScan, Zapper and Masterpass) now include a few additional fields: Tax total, Item specific Tax, Original Price of item and Discounted Price when applicable – This allows for future additions to any integrations using the GOPM call method.
  • Added a more Secure way of utilizing Service Fees – This will assist with any abuse of the feature that could’ve taken place.

Auto Inventory

  • We have removed the concepts of Inventory Tree and Inventory headings and will automatically manage the inventory sequence and structure by Department/Items alphabetically within department.
  • We have added the much-requested Item setting called “Stock Item” which has a ‘Yes/No’ option. By default, the Stock Item setting will be ‘Yes’, but you can change this as required. When an item is set as Stock Item, it will appear in any of the inventory processes and on inventory reports and of course stock levels will be tracked.
  • Items where Stock Item is set to ‘No’ will not show any stock quantities and will not appear on any of the Inventory processes. Cost calculations will be based on the item’s Cost field. These are typically items which are services and where stock levels are not tracked. Items that are recipes of type assembled will generally not be a stock item, whereas recipe items that are produced in batches will generally be a stock item.
  • One of the easiest ways of updating the Stock Item settings will be via Export / Import process using the likes of Excel. We are also adding a new Stock Item Export option that will make it easier working with the most used inventory fields.
