Integrating your EPOS software with your accounts package has many benefits that are worth noting.

  • Reduced business administration – In a busy working environment anything to save double entry and reduce administration has to be a good thing. Without an integrated system, how do your sales figures make their way into your accounts package? You have to enter them manually…this is time consuming and can also expose opportunity for user error. With an integrated system, however, these trading figures are transferred from your EPOS software into your accounts package automatically.
  • Charge to customer accounts – Due to the synchronisation with your accounts package, all customer accounts are accessible on the till software. This means that you can view the account balance and account status as well as any special pricing for that customer. Sales can be charged to the account, which can be later settled at the till software.
  • In depth reporting – With a range of reports accessible on both the epos software and your accounts package you will always be able to view accurate reporting figures.
  • Stock synchronisation – Remove any chance of over promising stock with your stock levels fully synchronised. This will mean that when originally setting up the system, the stock levels from within your accounts software, are sent across to your EPOS software. This integration will also mean that when stock is sold on the till, the figures are transferred back across to the accounts package so everything is kept up to date.
  • Automatically email invoices – A full VAT invoice can be set to send to your account customer’s preferred email address at the point of sale. This will therefore save you from having to post the invoice manually. The invoice is custom made so can be designed to match the invoice that you currently use in your accounts package as much as possible.

  • Cashless facility – Bluerunner gives the opportunity to become completely cashless therefore creating an even more secure environment by removing the need to store physical payment . Customers can top up their account online and then spend the balance through the till software.
  • Customer loyalty – When scanning the card at the point of sale, if enabled, loyalty points are earned and can be later used for promotions.
  • Redemptions – Rewards earned can be redeemed through the till software.
  • Mobile app – Create your own loyalty app allowing customers to download and start collecting rewards, therefore creating a platform that the customer can access anywhere.

  • Table Bookings – Bookings can be taken over the phone to reserve specific times and set a reservation time for the table. When creating the booking a deposit can be taken as well as individual customer requirements.
  • Reduced Administration – Instead of having to enter all trading figures manually these are transferred over from the POS software to the PMS system to remove double entry.
  • Room Posting – Food and beverages purchased in the restaurant or bar can be assigned to a room account and paid off when the room is settled.
  • Stock Management – Stock can be tracked right down to ingredient levels with the recipe management feature. Dishes and drinks can be made with this feature to ensure that all stock per each ingredient is adjusted correctly.

Smart-Stock-Launch

We are pleased to announce that Smart Stock has launched!

Smart Stock is a tablet based inventory and warehouse management which seamlessly integrates directly with accounts packages including Sage 50, Sage 200, Pegasus Opera 3 and Exchequer. Smart Stock will reduce the level of manual entry needed and will give you greater control of your stock across a single site or over multiple sites.

  • Within the control centre you can create immediate or scheduled stock takes which can be assigned to specific devices. Stock takes can be created as frequently as you require.
  • Inward and outward stock adjustments can be managed through a tablet and comments can be placed next to each movement for audit purposes.
  • Live stock enquiries by location to view stock in house, stock on order and a complete audit of all stock movements that have taken place.
  • Perform location transfers with ease as you directly transfer your stock or mark the stock as ‘in transit’ to alert the other store that stock is on it’s way. This allows you to have complete knowledge of where your stock is at all times.
  • Location replenishment allows you to request stock from another location with support for ‘in transit’ mode and the ability to easily send requests through the in-built messenger between the devices.
  • Stock can be booked in at a variety of detail levels, including batch, serial and bin locations. Goods receipts will be matched against purchase orders and will report if there are any discrepancies.
  • Sales order picking lists can be created and assigned to a specific device. This can be executed efficiently due to the picking route being pre-configured in the system.

Exciting New Features in V3

Posted on May 12, 2017 by

version 3 updates

An exciting new development has just launched here at SBS. Version 3 has arrived and has many changes that are worth talking about.

  • Theme design allows for cosmetic as well as practical changes to be done to the till. This can help to make the till a lot simpler to use by removing transaction keys that aren’t actually needed. If your business doesn’t take card then why have a card button? Editing the theme to suit you and your business will only make it more simple for the till users.
  •  An inbuilt ticketing system has been created that gives the till complete control of setting up season tickets as well as handling admission. These can be made and redeemed at the POS as well as printing specifically designed tickets at the receipt printer. Customers can also be assured that if they lose their ticket you can search for their account in the database using their details at the till.
  • The ability to create refund reasons and discount reasons saving the till user time and data input at the point of sale.
  • DigiTicket Integration is a brand new integration that allows for tickets to be bought online and redeemed at the POS. This integration also benefits from real-time reporting which can allow for users to check on visitor numbers and the sales of certain events throughout the day.
  • Charging credit to a gift card is now supported within the software. This means that gift cards can now be used to pay off transactions. These can be topped up at the till by adding a button onto the till layout which will then prompt you for the amount you wish to add to the card.

 

 

If you are interested to see how Version 3 could benefit your Museum or Visitor Attraction or if you want to hear about all the other exciting features in this software update then please get in touch either by ringing 0845 094 8268 or contact us.

Our latest partnership with Verifone allows us to offer an additional EPOS card processing integrated solution alongside our existing partnership with YesPay International. The move was pushed by clients requiring integrated solutions within the hospitality industry and Verifone’s Bill Manager allows this to happen.

At the push of a button the table balance can be requested from the EPOS terminal at which stage the waiting staff can prompt for gratuity (if required) and process payment at the table.

Integrated EPOS credit card processing has the following benefits:

  • No double entry of amounts
  • No miss-keying bills
  • Point to Point Encryption
  • Integrated with EPOS
  • Processing over a broadband connection
  • Bluetooth and WiFi models available
  • Web based reporting

Introducing Wireless Ordering

Posted on May 5, 2017 by

wireless ordering

 

Wireless ordering allows you to extend the reach of your business by offering mobile point of sale.

Orders are processed in real-time at the table, allowing you to print to a kitchen or dispense printer, store a tab and even print the customer’s bill ready for payment.

Upsell
Imagine the scenario you have a glorious hot day and the garden is full with customers, why not grab a mobile terminal and upsell some drinks? Or maybe you could have a waiter attending to tables to upsell those desserts and coffee’s?

Professional Image
Concentrate on customer service by spending less time writing dockets and running to and from the kitchen. Orders are processed wirelessly, allowing staff can move from table to table and keep on selling!

Integrated
The wireless ordering is integrated into your existing EPOS system. This allows you to make a change at a till point, which in turn will update the devices.

digiticket integration final logo

Recently we have teamed up with Digitickets to provide a solution for the customers online and onsite ticketing experience. Digitickets offer an online ticketing software that links down to the POS allowing customers to purchase their ticket online at any time and redeem it onsite with the use of a barcode or booking number.

  • Season Tickets
  • Events and Bookings
  • Real-time Reporting

Digitickets offer a vast variety of different reports as default covering Gift Aid to Daily Admissions. These can include reports as specific as staff sales per day or a report detailing which tickets are most popular. These reports are all completely synchronised with the till so there is no need to wait to check on how sales are going.

There are also features for creating events allowing you to set up events with different sessions and different capacities. The session sales can be tracked on Digitickets and this is also reflected on the till so there is no risk of over booking an event.

“With the ability of scanning the ticket barcode to allow entry this will save a considerable amount of time upon entrance and will avoid queues building up creating a better experience for the customer.”

As well as events and day tickets season ticket passes can also be made. Membership tickets are created online and can be set to expire in a fixed term or per the amount of redemption’s. You can also track how often the members are using their ticket and see if they attend any of the events.
