POS: ICG will input the number that our terminal will have. If you have two or more different POS systems; designate a different number to each one of them. The number of POS also defines the series of tickets and invoices (for example, if we assign the POS 1 the series of ticket will be T001 and the invoices F001. If we designate the POS 2, the series will be T002 and F002).

Breaking Hour: By default, FrontRest interpret that if the Z is done after the 00:00h, the cash count will be done with date of the new day. There are businesses that can do different sessions, for example; from 8 pm until 2 am, and from 2 am until 8 am and those sessions have to have the same cash count date. We are talking about discotheques and night clubs. The FrontRest disposes the possibility to define the hour after which the software will change the day, on other words; the discotheque will change the breaking hour to 9 am, so the cash count will count all the session as one day and not in two days.

Sale Warehouse: This is the warehouse in which after a sale the software will take the item out from the stock and ordered the item. If you want to change it you will have to click on the magnifying glass.

Central Warehouse: This is the warehouse which supplies the sale warehouse. It is only feasible to have this central warehouse different from the main when you have different sale warehouses and those are supplied by the central warehouse.

If you input, in the item to buy, the yield, automatically the system will calculate the gross quantity that have to be removed from stock.

Items with formats:


The items with formats are those which are sold only one part of the item to sell, for example, the rations, one ration, one shot, one cup The principal characteristics of those items are that they have no stock, are sets and are sold in portions.

59 of 119

To create the formats you can go to Files / Item / Format / New

For example, the formats will go in function of liters that can be used in each format. If a bottle can make 25 shots the format of the shot has to be 1/25 = 0.04. Once you have created the formats. You have to assign them to the items in Add format.

To buy in formats:
As we have mentioned before, you can find an item in different measures each time it is purchased. This it is necessary when the item is been purchased, you can decide in which format (measure) you prefer.

Configuration:
Mark the check Purchase by formats in File / Company / System. You must mark the option Purchase by format if you want to be able to do the purchasing management in different formats (measures) adapting the briefing sheets, delivery date, inventory and replenishment.

60 of 119

To input a purchase delivery note:


You have to input the purchase delivery note by going to Purchases module / Purchase del. note.

When you active the option to purchase by formats, automatically the systems add the necessary fields in the purchase delivery notes screen. These fields are detailed below: Boxes: Unity 1, or number of boxes which you want to buy. Qty.boxes: Unity 2, or unities that are in each box. Units Format: Total of units that are going to be bought with a specific format (multiplication of the previous points). P.Format: Purchase price of an item in the input format in the previous field.

In the example, the price of acquisition of a bottle of 1 liter is 7.90$, while the price to purchase the bottle of 0.75 liters is of 5.53$. Both lines correspond at same item but they are bough with different formats.

62 of 119

The purchasing price of a bottle of 1 liter is 1.48$ and the carafes price is 1$ (price per liter). With the carafe the price per liter is cheaper.

Inventory
From this option you can make an inventory of all the articles indicating the unities per format (measure) that you have in the warehouse. To achieve that, click Inventory. You cannot use the option Purchasing Module / Inventory because from this option is not allowed the insertion of formats. If you want to modify the inventory date, go to Files / Employee type options / modify / warehouse. Look for the icon of Inventory and Recount and select them, adding to our sale screen.

You can add all the items of one section clicking in Auto.

63 of 119

To modify the units click in the box. Moreover of the units that are counted, you have to input the format of these units, adding a line in the inventory for each different format. If you input two lines at the same article with different formats, the system is going to regularize for the total of the units.

POS Closing and Cash Control

Daily POS Closing


There are three options of configuration for the Z POS closing:

1. Declare the cash:

Configuration / Terminal Types, tab Cash Count.


65 of 119

If it is marked, The employee will have to declare the different types of payment. In case of Cash, the user must declare the money that is in the cash drawer, declaring the number of paper money and coins.

If the declared cash does not correspond with the calculated, the software will show the next message:

If the your is answer No, you can go over and modify the declaration of cash before to do the POS closing. If the your is answer Yes, the system realizes the POS closing and it calculates the difference.

If it is not marked, the system calculates the cash out without the necessity to declare the cash.

2. To save opening balance when making Z:


66 of 119

If it is marked, you can select if the input money is: Enter new opening balance: The amount you input is the opening balance and the remainder is the amount you withdraw. Enter withdraw: The amount you input is the withdrawn and the remainder is the amount you left in the opening balance. *You can declare the opening balance or the withdrawn when declaring the money in the cash drawer; you declare the cash. See the next screen when doing the cash count:

The amount to withdraw is calculated differently depending about the function of Declare cash. If it is marked, the amount of money to withdraw is calculated subtracting the input opening balance to the declared amount. For there more, if the declared amount is not the same than the calculated quantity, the software will show the difference. If declared > calculated, surplus. If declared < calculated, shortage.

67 of 119

If it is not marked, The amount to withdraw is calculated subtracting the input opening balance to the calculated amount. Because nobody has declared the cash, the difference is not showed. If it is not marked, The system understands that the new opening balance is zero. The amount to withdraw is calculated differently depending of the option declare cash If it is not marked, the amount to withdraw is equal to the calculated amount. If it is marked, the amount to withdraw is the same tan the declared amount.

3. To show Z cash count information to the employee:

If it is marked, The system shows the report Z in screen and the user can print it out.

68 of 119

If it is not marked, the screen neither shows the Z report nor can be printed. In that case, the screen about the declaration of the opening balance (point 2), cannot be seen. The calculated amount and the difference between the declared and the calculated will not be showed by the system.

You can also configure that when doing the cash count you cannot see the POS closing. On other words, you can only see the declared amount, the opening balance and the withdrawn.

Go Configuration / Terminal Types, tab Cash Count.

We must mark the option Save opening balance when making Z if we want to see the Cash Control screen.

69 of 119

Configuration / Employee Types, tab Cash Count, not check the box Cash Count

If in the configuration of the Employee type options, you have unmarked the option of CASH COUNT the screen only shows the other fields.

The screen of POS control is showed when doing the cash count:

The cash count and declared have been separated so you must configure it if you want to see the declared cash. Configuration / Employee Types, tab Cash Count

70 of 119

Now you have differenced the CASH COUNT with the DECLARED.

The option Declared can only be seen when doing the cash count; you can declare the cash specifying by the pieces. In the printed cash count the declared section it is showed as Breakdown.

We must declare the pieces (paper Money and coins)

Cash Count

71 of 119

DECLARED

Automatic Z
This functionality allows you to do the Z cash counts automatically when detecting the change of system date. The software will take into account the break time for that you can automate the fact to have a Z cash count per day. To activate the functionality it has been created a check in Configuration / Company/ General / Automatic Arching Z

To configure the break hour you must go to Configuration / Terminals/Devices, Edit Element.

Working
In the point of sell the system will check if the sale has exceeded the broken hour. If the answer is affirmative the software will create a cash count showed to the next screen:

72 of 119

The cash count information will never be showed. So, when doing the POS closing you must use the option Closing report. You can configure it from Employee Types Options / User options, click Modify and find it in the section General / Closing Report.

73 of 119

24 hours configuration:
For business that is working 24 hours uninterruptedly, can have problems with the working dates because the system is always on. To solve this kind of problems, FrontRest has an option called 24 hours configuration Example: A business makes the zeta before 00:00 and they never shut down the system, because the machine date is the same. The working date cannot be updated so the next day they will be selling with the date of yesterday. To activate the 24 hours working mode you must go to Configuration / Company / General and check the box 24 hours configuration.

74 of 119

Working
If you have activated the 24 hours configuration at the point of sell the system checks if there are sales with the Z code and the POS: a) If there are no sales, it is the first after Z. If the hour (working date) is higher than the breaking hour, you fix the working date of FrontRest according to the system date. b) If there is an existent sale or more then the system does not do any action.

Safe Box Control: Summarizing


From 2010 versions we have add a new cash control system that is inside of the business safe box. For there more, it controls the terminals of POS cash drawers. That system is called Safe Box Control.

Functionality
The cash control in a safe box is done from ICGManagers the daily closing report and the cash movements from the own Front.

In the bottom of the daily closing report, SAFE BOX section, you can see the balance of the safe box. Initial cash: Initial balance of the safe box at the beginning of the day. Withdrawn cash: Amount withdrawn of every one of the POS cash drawers. If you are working with safe boxes, when withdrawing cash in the Front, automatically, the amount is transferred to the safe box associated to the terminal. Bank entry: Manually entered amount in the safe box. Bank output: Manually withdrawn amount from the safe box.

Balance openings in POS: The system transfers automatically the cash between the safe box and the POS cash drawers when introducing a balance opening in a terminal. Final cash founds: Total calculated money is equal to the initial cash founds of the next day.

NOTE: The total amount in a safe box can only be consulted from ICGManager because different Fronts can work with a single box even though each Front has its own data base. On other words, you can configure a business with x independents terminals (independent data bases) and all of those terminals will work with the same safe box. Which totals can be consulted from ICGManager. There are five cash movements in Front that affect the total balance of a safe box: 1. Bank entry: It allows us to increase the safe boxs balance from an external deposit (Bank, other security box) 2. Bank output: It allows us to register the output of safe boxs cash to the bank, other safe box, etc.
75 of 119

3. Transfer from POS to safe: It allows you to register the transfer of cash from the safe box to the POS associated to terminal that executes the system for the safe box. This transfer increases the total balance of the safe box and it decreases the calculated amount for the next Z made in the terminal. 4. Transfer from safe to POS: It allows you to register a cash transfer from the safe box associated to the terminal that executes the system for the safe box. This transfer decreases the safe boxs balance and it increases the deposit in the safe box associated to the terminal. In consequence, the calculated amount in cash also increases for the next Z done in the terminal. 5. Transfer to another safe: It allows you to transfer between safe boxes.

These cash movements in the Front are done by the new icon which links us to the next screen:

Besides of these five movements manually registered by the user, FrontRest / FrontRetail also do an automatic movement when making Z. You can consult the movements by clicking See Movements.

If the Front is configured as Save opening balance when making Z:


When making Z, the next screen will appear:

The amount input as Withdrawn in this screen is registered as the input of cash in the safe box (for example $200.00).

76 of 119

The final amount resulting of the difference between the total declared and the withdrawn is like a new opening balance in the terminal box and the next Zs total calculated will increase.

If the Front is NOT configured as Save opening balance when making Z:


FrontRest / FrontRetail do not save any new opening balance in the terminal box because automatically the declared amount will be transferred as cash entry in the safe. You can configure the check, Save opening balance when making Z, in the screen, type of terminals or in the Front configuration from ICGManager.

Configuration FrontRetail in ICGManager.

Configuration FrontRest in ICGManager

You have to associate each of the safes to each of the Front boxes to make the control of safe boxes work. You can associate the boxes going to the tab Safe in the Fronts configurations in ICGManager.
