This section aims to provide all the relevant information with regard to hiring a scanning system for retail.

How does a scanning system work?

A flat keyboard till is used for our scanning systems and the till is linked with a pre configured barcode scanner. A number of open departments can be programmed onto the keyboard such as Grocereries, Confectionery, Beers, Wines etc. In this situation the amount can be keyed into a department and till operated as a basic till. However with the attatched scanner you have two options firstly to scan the barcode say for example a can of fosters allocate the price £1.00 and allocate to beers department or alternatively you can programme the full description into the till for example fosters. You only need to programme this into the till for the first time as the next time the till scans the item it will recognise at the price set

Scanning & Advanced Functions

Scanning tills can carry out a number of advanced functions. Depending on the model chosen, they can have the ability to track stock quantities (e.g. you have 23 cans of Pepsi left in stock). They cannot track food recipes however. 

Receipts and Audit Rolls

 All our scanning tills use 2 till rolls - one roll constantly prints as you carry out your sales, and is rolled up automatically onto a spool inside the cash register. This gives you an audit or journal roll, with which you can look back at the full sales and reporting history of your cash register. The other is used to provide customer receipts if required, and to print your current financial (X) and end-of-day (Z) reports.

All our scanning cash registers can be programmed to print your Company name, address, VAT number etc etc, depending on your requirements. Please note that there is a limit to the number of characters and lines that can be printed – this varies model-to-model.
