The four key types of transactions that can be entered through registers using the POS module are:

Sales & Reversals: Cash Sales, Charge Sales, Customer Orders & Laybys

Cash Receipts: Cash, Credit Card or Cheque Payments against accounts

Cash Register: Quick Entry Sales

Customer Maintenance: add new customers and change of address etc

Additionally, you can use a workstation to enter a Finance (eg: Rental) transaction.

RCS POS integrates tightly with the RCS Sales, Stock and Debtors modules.

(Note: Some functionality listed below may be site specific and not necessarily be included in our "hosted solution")

Sales Module

top

The Sales Module is fully integrated with the Stock and Debtors modules. As the sales entry applications automatically add new debtors (or select from existing debtors) and creates new accounts as required, it can be said that the Debtor's module has its beginnings in the Sales module.

After a sale is entered and approved, a number of key transactions are automatically performed, eg: Link stock items to the Debtor's account, update sales and gross profit figures. All delivery paper work and audit trails are generated from the sales process. The Account is in Waiting status until delivery of all items associated with an account are confirmed as "Delivered".

Debtors Module

The Debtors module enables you to manage Debtors, Accounts, Credit History and Stock associated with an account. Each sale transaction that involves the giving of credit creates an account. Each account is allocated a unique number including a check digit (if required) for validation. Each customer will have only one "debtor" record but may have many account records (one for each rental, interest free, consumer mortgage or cash sale transaction). Access to debtor or account information can be via name, address, account number, phone number or stock item. A number of indicators can be stored against a debtor (eg: Pensioner, Unemployed, etc) or account (eg: No statements).There is an automatic credit approval system with a user definable point scoring system that is linked directly with Credit Advantage credit reference database. The system automatically bills customers monthly, on the anniversary of their account start date and generates follow-up correspondence such as user definable arrears letters and repossession orders. User definable fees and charges can be applied for letters and credit follow-up etc.

Stock Module

The RCS Stock Module provides you with the ability to control stock at four levels:

Each stock item is assigned to a particular classification and department. Item Number and Standard Costing items are always treated as "new". Serial Number controlled items may be "new", "trade-in" or "rental", depending on the origin and movement of the item. Costing for each transaction is performed automatically by the system.To maintain the relationship between stock and accounts, each major item currently on rent maintains a reference to the customer account number to which it is rented. Similarly, those items returned or traded-in maintain a reference to the account number involved.All modules involving the movement of stock are tightly integrated with the stock module to ensure that accurate records of stock holdings are maintained at all times. Costing is at original actual cost for serialised stock items, average cost price for minor stock and percentage of the retail price for sundry items.
