August 2007

JPOS General:

  • new live support over the Internet - Now (version 9.31 and later) under the Help menu you can download and run a support program which will allow you to connect to one of our support technicians. They will be able to view and control your computer, solve the issue and you will be able to watch the action. Perfect for live training sessions too!
  • Heartland Payment Systems has been added to our list of credit card processors with which we are certified
  • we can print your Gift/Loyalty Cards! - We have a full color plastic (PVC) card printer with magnetic stripe encoder. We will set up your artwork for free! Ask us for a sample. The cards can be reloaded with any value. Most importantly, you won't pay a "per transaction processing fee" like you do with most other Gift Card solutions.

JPOS touchPOS:

  • customers will now be able to see the current balance of their Gift and Loyalty cards on the Subtotal screen - In many cases this eliminates the need for printing receipts for that information.
  • modified how the QuickList buttons are set up - now you can load multiple items onto the buttons at once. They are loaded alphabetically. You can now move and button assignments. You can also now clear multiple buttons at once.

JPOS BackOffice:

  • added Harbor Wholesale (West Coast) to the list of vendors that the JPOS eInvoice program can process. We also process invoices from: Pine State Trading Company-ME, Maine Beverage-ME, Manchester Wholesale-NH, J Polep-MA, AG of Maine-ME, Garber Bros-MA with more to come.
  • changed the number of decimal places from 2 to 3 for the cost of items. Many vendors sell items using 3 decimal places so it is necessary to make this change in order to have the total dollar amount in the Receive Order routine match the actual invoice.

JPOS Technical:

  • moved the printer settings file from inside to outside the JPOS.00 folder. It was previously possible to have the normal backup routine overwrite the local printer settings with a global printer settings file.
  • the Windows operating system has a maximum number of files that can be stored in any one folder. The maximum is dependent on the file system used. For the FAT32 system, the maximum is 65534 (less if long file names are used). The Notes files use long file names and therefore the possibility exists that you could max out a folder for any given year. So we subdivided the JPOS.00\Cashreg\Trans\Notes\yyyy\ into JPOS.00\Cashreg\Trans\Notes\yyyy\mm - where y = year and m = the month. This will also speed up the automatic back-up routine.

July 2007

JPOS touchPOS:

  • changed the number of decimal places from 2 to 3 for the cost of items. Many vendors sell items using 3 decimal places so it is necessary to make this change in order to have the total dollar amount in the Receive Order routine match the actual invoice.
  • added a prompt for the cashier to do a safe drop. You set the prompt threshold and the program will alert the cashier to make a safe drop once that threshold amount has been reached.

JPOS BackOffice:

  • changed the way invoices are exported to QuickBooks. Now saving an order using either JPOS eInvoice or JPOS BackOffice > Receive Order creates a file that can be later exported to QuickBooks. This allows orders to be received at the store level and the accounting to be done at a remote site such as the main office.

June 2007

JPOS touchPOS:

  • modified the way the Canadian Tender button functions. Now the program converts the balance owed to the equivalent dollar amount in Canadian currency and gives back change in Canadian currency.
  • added ability to download customer display ads from our FTP site directly to your register. You no longer have to create your own ads - we can do it for you. Are you getting paid for the advertising space on your counter? Our software customers are!
