POS system software for Fruit & Vegetable Stores
Fruit & Vegetable Shops overview
Fruit and vegetable stores generally require a unique setup that often involves additional hardware. Hardware such as scales and label printers along with integrated EFTPOS are all very common in these stores.
As the majority of fresh produce is purchased by weight, scales are an integral part of your POS system. Idealpos has the ability to integrate with several scale options which may be configured to best suit your business requirements.
Label printing may also be a requirement for this type of business. Idealpos offers integration to a label printing scale to further streamline this process should this be necessary.

A Customer Display allows promotion of any specials to your customers as they are making their decisions. This can be set to scroll through a folder of pre-prepared images promoting what you want to sell quickly.
You may choose to show a single image or choose from alternative layouts showing items as they are rung up and then utilize the full screen when there is no sale taking place.
Idealpos is able to integrate with various scales that allow the weight measurement to be shown on the POS screen, allowing you to simply place the items on the scale and enter the selected stock item button. It will be weighed instantly and the price displayed on the POS screen.
An alternative scale option may be a model that does not weigh items directly into the POS, but will instead create programmable barcodes for the items you weigh which are then scanned at the time of sale.
Scales are often an integral part of this type of business. It is important to note that when using scales that they have been checked and authorised by an official weights and measures company and all equipment using them is stamped as per Weights and Measures Regulations 1999
Product Images on Buttons
An easy to use solution is to program the POS buttons with a product image therefore enabling easier identification of certain products. This is best used for items that are easily recognizable.
You can also add a description to the button for further clarification if required. It is recommended that images are edited to be the size/shape of the respective button.
Idealpos has the ability to create labels which can be printed onto various mediums for use with a barcode scanner. Stock Items, Customers and Promotions may be printed with the use of various label settings. A scancode may be added to stock items automatically if required.
An advantage of using labels is to add barcodes to items that don't come with them as standard. This then allows the stock items to be scanned quickly not only during a sale but also for stocktake.
Barcodes are ideal for the fast entry of stock items into the sales screen using a barcode scanner. You may also use scanning on customer accounts for membership cards, bar tabs, accounts and for employees to log onto a sale. Barcodes may also be used on gift vouchers, credit notes, receipts and coupons for faster service.
A fast and secure way to keep mistakes to a minimum, used in conjunction with label printing and Idealpos' internal barcode creation facility, you can achieve great results very quickly.
Integrated Eftpos is available linking to Idealpos software.
By connecting your EFTPOS to your Point of Sale System, you eliminate operator error with the sale being sent directly from the POS to the EFTPOS terminal. The EFTPOS terminal then connects with the bank and will return an approval response to the POS so the operator can finalise the sale.
An integrated solution also speeds up the transaction as the operator doesn't have to enter values into a pin pad and deal with multiple receipts.
