- Sell products by weight - you can set up a product for example at 'Beef per kg' with a price of £8.00 (per kg) - then you can sell 1.5 of the item and it will calculate at £12
Please note, this machine does not allow clerk interrupt feature - new for 2019 - if you do require Clerk Interrupt, please see the upgraded version (there are a few other changes to the system)
This machine has three prices per product and this can be used in two main ways.
Selling by different size/measurement - the easiest example is in a pub environment - product one might be Strongbow (pint) at £3.60 - however if you press L2 (level 2) and then the same physically button this can be programmed as Strongbow (half) £1.80. this way you can condense down the buttons required to fit additional items on the keyboard.
Different price list - whether that's a completely different menu (ie a breakfast and evening menu) you could program up two entirely different menus and then physically swap the keyboard template depending on the menu you are serving. Or it could be the same products but perhaps a premium or even a 'happy hour' price.
How to set up price levels - L1 / L2 / L3 - these are keyboard levels - but what is happening you are telling the machine which range of PLU (product lookups) you are selling. So when it's on level 1 - on the right its products 1-70. level 2 is 71-140. this then allowed you to add either the same name or a different title for the price level 2. You then have various options of how to use the price shift, either manually or you can lock it down (useful for when the prices are valid for a set time - ie happy hour)
Do you need your cash register programmed?
In the accessories section on the right-hand side, you will see options for various programming services, either bronze or gold.
Machine setup including language, date and time, and the receipt header programming
Everything in Bronze and then Departments, products and prices, tax rates, cashiers, and various standard features depending on the exact machine
How does this process work?
When you place an order with programming, you will receive a WORD or Excel document via email which asks you for the required information for the specific machine you have ordered. Fill in the form and return it via email and we take care of the rest
How Long does it take?
Once we have your programming back and it's been checked, generally, the lead time is 2 working days - so if you send us your details on Tuesday - expect to receive the item on Thursday
