How does iVend Retail work

iVend POS is your Point Of Service where retail customers get to experience the exceptionally powerful service that iVend Retail on Cloud has to offer .

Terminal POS

Is the traditional Windows-based till POS having a cash drawer, pole display, magnetic swipe readers, and everything a retail store cashier needs to perform efficiently. The iVend terminal POS software is still by far the most efficient retailing POS tool, even though there are other POS varieties available.

License

iVend POS is licensed on a per user based licensing Model

For management consoles, each unique power user, or ‘administrator’ will have a unique sign-on (login-ID), which will be licensed by iVend.

Each licensed POS terminal can be configured to be operated by unlimited users giving a true multi-user platform. This means, a retailer pays for the application per device and not for number of cashiers working for the retail chain. A retailer may have 12-15 users at one store running 5 POS terminals; so the enterprise pays for only 5 licensed POS applications.

Configuration

iVend POS integrates into iVend Store component of iVend Retail over a LAN connection. iVend POS is so designed that it takes the Retail Profile attached to each cashier. This is done by attaching specific roles and security policies to individual cashiers, and not to the physical POS.

The iVend Terminal POS is so designed that multiple transaction types (Sale, Refund, Exchange, etc.) can be carried out in the same transaction, negating the need to create different transactions.
