Split items in a bill to make it apparent

Ever felt like bill could become more understandable.Billing or Invoicing in the case of fabrics is always a bit tricky!

For example the same fabric is purchased by a customer in 2 cut pieces, suppose one in 2 meters and one in 1 meter. It is possible to split one item into multiple lines on the bill making it clearer as to what was purchased to the shopper. You can also select different sales persons for the same item on different lines increasing sales flexibility.

Earlier it was always merged into a single line. This option still remains and might be useful in situations where it is not useful to show separate lines of quantity but a single line of total quantity.

 

Note: This feature is specifically for V11

Print Missing Barcodes at the POS

 

 


What to do if there is customer wanting to buy a product but the barcode is missing ?

Rebarcoding is generally done for items only at Head office or warehouse. But now Ginesys has a new feature by which it is possible to look up an item via search and print the barcode for the same at the shop’s point of sale itself.

Hence this allows rebarcoding to be a less expensive effort, saving logistics efforts and also increases customer satisfaction and pushes sales.
