Kassesystemet (The Point-Of-Sale System)
An ordinary cash register registers sales of products to customers. Each sale
is registered with its total amount of money, the products sold, and time of sale.
Advanced cash registers furthermore store information about what employee
performed the sale and how the customer paid for the products purchased. While a
cash register provides a very limited set of functionality, the
Point-Of-Sale (POS) system is extremely rich on features. The POS is
in reality a super-advanced cash register, providing such functionality as
stock control, returned products, gift certificates, customers, and suppliers
to name just a few. A POS can be characterized by having a large permanent storage
compared to a cash register. The system registers and stores all information
about each sale and allows for later extraction of data.
"Kassesystemet" is a full-featured POS (see feature list)
that provides all functionality expected from a such. Kassesystemet is superior to other
POS systems in a number of ways which are
described below. Kassesystemet is sold as a complete system, including
both hard- and software.
Kassesystemet consists of the following hardware (which is provided
by Regnecentralen at purchase): IBM-compatible PC (including a two-disk RAID),
LCD monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse, transaction printer,
barcode scanner, and cash drawer. All is aesthetically pleasing quality
hardware from recognized vendors. Different monitors, keyboards, and mice are
The software in Kassesystemet is a combination of an operating system,
a database system, and a POS system. The operating- and database systems are
based on open-source UNIX software making Kassesystemet extremely reliable
and very affordable.
The POS-software of Kassesystemet is designed by Regnecentralen and is
composed by the following five modules: Cash-register, product- and stock
administration, employee administration, supplier administration, and analysis.
Each module is designed to be as user-friendly as possible. The graphical user
interface is designed using the same interface style as well known Microsoft
products. This makes Kassesystemet very intuitive and easy to use.
Access to each module is controlled by the Employee Access Manager (EAM) which
allows the administrator of the system to assign different levels of access to
Recommendation From Customer
"We started using "Kassesystemet" in
The guys from Regnecentralen installed the system
in the shop during the evening and we started using it the
following day. I decided to buy Regnecetralen's system
because of it's reliability - I am by no means a computer expert and
do NOT want a system that crashes when I have customers waiting.
The system is very simple to use, reliable, inexpensive, and gives
full control of my stock, employees, sales, and purchases. We have
been using the system every day for three years now and have not
had problems of any kind. I can't
say enough positive things about the system. I think all shop
managers should seriously consider using it. It pays off!
