Convenience Stores overview

Products in convenience stores are many and varied. In order for you to speed up service at the cashier, you would want to be able to scan as many of the items as possible.

The use of IdealPOSs scanning technology can create a barcode for any item that doesn’t have one which can then be printed on label stickers and/or shelf labels. Even items from a deli department can be programmed and scanned with accompanying labels.

The use of Idealpos' Stock Manage app lets you easily perform a stocktake on the items within your store and continue trading. But performing a stocktake is only one of the features of the app. You can also receive stock, add barcodes to items and transfer items to other locations.

Customer Display

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.

There are numerous layouts to choose from where you can show an image the entire time, or show the items as they are rung up and then utilize the full screen when there is no sale taking place.

Stock Manage App

Idealpos utilises an iPhone app to allow you better management tools for the serious side of your business, stock control. With Stock Manage you can perform a stocktake on all locations, transfer stock between locations, receive items into stock as well as assign barcodes to all items.

You may also use a scanning device by Linea Pro which gives your phone extra functionality. This scanning device is not required, but it is if you want to scan all your items.

Stock Manage links directly to Idealpos and transfers data in a matter of seconds, allowing you to get on with the job you need to do.

Barcode Scanning

Barcodes are used in Idealpos for the fast entry of stock items into the sales screen using a barcode scanner, or for stock control using the Stock Manage app. When used in a convenience store, barcodes add speed and precision to all sales. Barcodes can also be used when printed on gift vouchers, credit notes, receipts and coupons for improved service.

Barcodes are fast and secure so help you go about your business knowing that mistakes are kept to a minimum. Used in conjunction with label printing and Idealpos' internal barcode creation facility, you can achieve great results very quickly.

Label Printing

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.

When selecting labels to print you may select multiple items in one go, saving you time from multiple searches. When selecting items to print you can select lines in blocks or individual lines.

Promotions are an ideal way to bundle products together for a quick sale, or maybe promote a new product and make it a standard purchase with your regular customers.

Idealpos allows you to create many different types of promotions so you can sell your products the best way you know how.

Customer Loyalty

Buy 10 & Get Your Next Coffee FREE!

If loyalty is a promotion offered in your cafe, then Idealpos is here to help. Simply by adding customers and linking them with either a code/number, a name or a barcode, Idealpos will track their rewards and store this information in the database.

For example each time a customer purchases a coffee, Idealpos will update their loyalty progress enabling you to let them know how many are required until their free one. When a free coffee is available you will be prompted at the end of the sale to ask them if they wish to redeem it. Redemptions can be accumulated and may be used within the one sale.

Hold Print

Hold Print is a function which can be used when you have a group of people sitting  at the same table, but wish to order and pay for their meals individually. By using the hold print function this will prevent the POS terminal sending the order to the kitchen printer or monitor until the last person has placed their order.

This is commonly used in cafes and bistro settings and is able to work alongside bar tabs and restaurant features. It can also work across multiple terminals within the same venue, allowing more than one terminal to take orders on the same order or table number. This can be helpful for large group service.

Details of the order are able to be viewed at any time if required to check. When everything is exactly as the customers want, you can then finalize and pay for the item, this will send a single docket to the kitchen enabling your kitchen staff to easily prepare and send all meals out for the table at the same time.

Kitchen Printing

Save time and the hassle of walking from the table or terminal to the kitchen to deliver orders with a kitchen printer doing the job for you. No more illegible dockets with the chef trying to read a team members scrawl. Each order is clearly printed and can be on duplicate dockets for different courses.

Use Handheld Ordering and save the staff even walking to a terminal.

Idealpos has the ability to print to multiple printers at the same time, separating a single order automatically into the different sections where dockets may be required. In a café setting this is usually the kitchen and the coffee machine.

Order Numbers

Order numbers give you the flexibility to assign a number to a customer to deliver food and drinks and then re-use that number.
