The touchscreen interface makes it easy and intuitive to record sales for your customers
Streamline sales with Point of Sale.
Show your customers you value their time and their business. Keep your checkout lines moving quickly with the comprehensive Point of Sale module. The intuitive touchscreen interface is easy for users to navigate, and because users press commands directly on the screen, the checkout process is quick and efficient. Additionally, because the Point of Sale module includes touchscreen keyboards and keypads, the entire process can take place directly on the screen.
Note: To use the touchscreen functionality, you need a touchscreen monitor. If you don't have a touchscreen monitor, you can still use a standard keyboard and mouse to navigate the interface.
Accept multiple tender types.
Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale allows you to accept multiple forms of payment for sales, making it easier for your customers to do business with you. Simply select the payment type the customer wants to use, and the Point of Sale tender workflow takes care of the rest.
With a Sage Payment Solutions merchant account, you can easily process credit card and debit card sales from within Sage BusinessVision, eliminating double entry and speeding up the checkout process.
Integrate credit and debit card payments.
In today's retail environment, customers expect the option to pay for goods and services with their credit or debit cards. Save time and ensure transaction accuracy with Sage Exchange Desktop*—which provides integrated credit card and debit card processing directly from within Sage BusinessVision.
Sage Exchange Desktop is a Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS)-compliant credit card payment application that allows you to manage the credit and debit payment process from within the Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale module. After enabling and configuring credit and debit card processing, select the credit card tender to automatically process credit card or debit card payments from customers. Sage Exchange Desktop initiates the debit or credit process and reports whether the transaction was completed successfully or not. Sage BusinessVision uses this information to complete and post the sale or to notify you that alternative payment is required.
Not only does Sage Exchange reduce the time it takes to process credit or debit cards using nonintegrated solutions, it reduces data-entry errors that can result from manual credit or debit processing.
*Subject to credit approval and to Sage Payment Solutions terms and conditions. Additional fees, including swipe terminal for card present transactions, Internet access, and credit/debit card required.
Keep the checkout line moving.
It happens every day—a customer forgets an item in the store and remembers it during the checkout process. Do you delete the current sale and lose your work in order to help the next customer in line? Or do you keep the sale open and make the other customers wait? Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale keeps the line moving with a Hold Sale feature that lets you save the current sale in process and move on to the next one. When the original customer returns, simply retrieve the original sale and continue where you left off.
The Reverse Sales process allows you to quickly process returns. Just select the original sales receipt in Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale, press Reverse Sale, and select the items or quantities being returned.
Make returns simple for everyone.
When customers return items to your store, they want the process to be fast and easy. Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale simplifies the return process with the option to Reverse Sales. Easily view your sales history, identify the original sales receipt, and—with a single click—reverse the entire sale. If the customer wants to return only some of the items on the receipt, simply select the items not being returned to remove them from the return process.
The reprint receipt function makes it easier to replace lost customer receipts or reprint a receipt if there are printing problems.
Eliminate lost or missing receipts.
In addition to printing receipts with each sale, Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale makes it easy to reprint receipts when the original is lost or the printer fails. Simply look up the previous sale in Sales History and then reprint the receipt.
Help make gift giving easier for customers.
Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale also offers the option to print gift receipts with each sale so your customers may include a receipt to return or exchange the gift without revealing its cost. Moreover, when reprinting a receipt, Sage BusinessVision can also reprint the gift receipt.
Let customers layaway items and pay over time.
Have customers who need to pay for items over time? Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale provides support for layaway payments—customers provide an initial deposit when they first come in, and you apply additional payments on the item over time. Customers receive progress receipts with each payment and a final receipt when the balance due on the item is received.
Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale makes it easy to track sales for your individual salespersons. Enable the "prompt for salesperson" function to ensure that each sale is logged to a specific salesperson.
Assign sales and track sales performance.
Does a single sales clerk manage the checkout process for multiple salespersons? With Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale, easily assign each sale to a specific salesperson to track sales automatically.
Scan or key in.
With Sage BusinessVision Point of Sale, you can keep checkout lines moving quickly by using a supported bar-code scanner. Simply scan the bar code on an item and Sage BusinessVision adds it to the sale.
What's more, for large items, you can key customer purchases into the computer quickly and easily using onscreen keyboards and number pads. If you don't have a touchscreen monitor, you can still use a standard keyboard and mouse to navigate the interface.
