and Groups enable you to keep track of data (such as prices, sales
totals, and alpha-numeric descriptions) separately for the different
products, and categories of products that you sell. Smaller cash
registers use just departments, such as: drinks, groceries, hardware
etc. Bar, Cafe and Restaurant cash registers need to be large enough
to have every item on the keyboard. If this is not possible then the
next models up allow pop up items, which can list items under a
category ie white wine glass and the items are then chosen. Pop up
screens make selling items easier, particularly where some sites can
have up to 1500 or more individual items and sale options. Larger
units can incorporate bar code readers, which enables the store
owner to simply scan the bar code attached to products. Restaurant
and Café models allow tables and TAB’s to be opened and tracked
while automatically sending food orders to the kitchen.
The printer is one of the main
parts of a cash register. It is vital to choose a register
with the right printing capabilities for your business.
If you need receipts then a printer that has two rolls is best –
one for your journal (audit) tape and one for issuing receipts when
required. More sophisticated models in our range can store the
journal (audit) tape in memory for printing later. Silent printers
help where noise becomes a distraction for customers or annoying for
operators whilst also saving the need to stock both ribbons and
paper rolls. Silent models just need thermal paper to run and can
print up to 20 times faster than conventional ribbon-based printers.
The drawer is another important
part of a cash register. There are 3 aspects to consider in a
drawer: type, size, and strength. We have lightweight drawers for
small owner-operator businesses through to heavy duty models for
service stations, night clubs and supermarkets.
Features that provide management
control and protect your money and your business. Models are
available that use secret clerk sign on codes to limit staff access
to management functions. On advanced models reports covering:
individual staff sales totals, refunds, discounts, operational
errors and detailed individual staff sales tracking.
Features that provide you with
information vital to the success of your business. Different cash
register models offer from as few as 3 to more than 20 different
reports. Choose a model that provides the information you need to
monitor and control your business.
Some cash registers can
communicate with external equipment for various purposes, such as
extra printers, kitchen printers, bar code scanners, weighing
scales, remote customer displays, kitchen video order displays, and
computerized stock control software. Connecting your cash register
or computerized system to these can save double-entry of sales
information, saving you time and increasing accuracy.
