EPOS

How Tos (1)

You can find this section under EPOS in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

NOTE that for the EPOS functionality to be available in the IRP, you must enable the Epos Enable Till Application Setting (in the ‘Till‘ grouping).

This section allows you to add Electronic Point of Sale (EPOS) systems to certain stock locations within the business. You can have any number of tills that you need in each location. Any IRP Admin user is enabled for the EPOS system when they are assigned a shop code under their Admin User Account. For more information on setting this up, see the Admin Users section.

Note that an EPOS user can only operate an EPOS that is based in the same stock location as their user profile.

To view the EPOS till, click the View Till button at the top of the screen. This displays the TillSetup.aspx screen:

EPOS Till Application Settings

The following Application Settings are available for the EPOS till functionality (located within the grouping called 'Till'):

  • Epos Enable Till: Determines whether the EPOS till is available for use. If disabled, no one can use till functionality.
  • Epos Enable Till Pass Code Login: Determines the EPOS till login method. If enabled, the user must enter their retail user code (defined on their Admin User account page) to log in, otherwise a list of users is made available and they simply select who to log in as.
  • Epos Gift Voucher Stock ID: This is a Stock ID set up by the system to represent a Gift Voucher and enables the till to generate gift vouchers. If this is not defined, the till creates inactive Brand, Category, Model and Stock entries automatically on login (if required), and updates the Application Setting.
  • EPOS Show EAN 13 Partcode In Product Information: When enabled the EAN 13 part code will display in the EPOS product information popup.
  • EPOS Show Part Code In Product Information: When enabled the part code will display in the EPOS product information popup.
  • Retail Allow Split Payments: Determines whether Split Payments are allowed on the till. Split Payments are payments by different methods such as Card and Cash, Card and Cheque, etc.

Setting Up An EPOS Till

See the How To article in this section for instructions on setting up an EPOS.

To add or edit an EPOS, follow these steps:

  1. Go to EPOS in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.
  2. To edit an EPOS, click  beside the EPOS that you want to edit.
  3. To add an EPOS, either a) click the Add New Till button at the top of the screen (taking you to the EposTillEdit.aspx page) or b) click the View Till button at the top of the screen (taking you to the Epos/TillSetup.aspx page). From the latter page, use the ‘Create New Till’ section in the lower part of the screen.
  4. Complete the following information. If you see an asterisk (*) beside a setting it means that the setting is required.

    Setting Description
    EPOS Till ID This is the unique identifier for the till. This is added automatically when you first add the till to the system.
    Active    This determines whether the EPOS till is active and accessible.
    Till Name The name to be given to the till, for example ‘Shop Floor’.
    Stock Location The stock location that the till is assigned to. The stock in this location will be deprecated when sales are made through the EPOS.

Using the Admin, is it possible to see a list of EPOS sales versus online card sales?
Although not visible in the Admin, you could see this breakdown by using a report. If necessary, contact your IRP Account Manager for assistance.
