Bill To Location

The location to which an invoice should be sent. This is used when a purchase order is created. The Bill To location will be taken from this location code. If the code is empty, the Bill To is assumed to be the main location itself.

Competition Location

The competition location we want to check when we are looking at competition pricing for this main location.   

Rate Of Sale Method

The Rate Of Sale is the number of units sold over a range of weeks divided by the number of weeks. For a store the Rate Of Sale is usually calculated only on Sales. However, if the location is a warehouse, there will not actually be any sales. Instead, there will be transfers to the stores. In this case the Rate Of Sale for the warehouse should be based on Sales + Transfers. If the Sales + Transfers method is selected, you should be aware of the following:

  • When viewing the ROS in the range window of Item/Location Item, the ROS will include transfers. Note the Qty Sold will also include the transfers not just the quantity sold.

  • When viewing 13 weeks statistics, the ROS and Qty Sold includes the quantities transferred as well as the quantities sold.

  • Within Allocated Orders, the ROS includes the quantity transferred.

  • The ROS shown on the Purchase Order Verification report includes quantities transferred as well as quantities sold.

  • When using Import PDA, the ROS and quantity sold include the quantity transferred.

Tickets Required

If tickets should be hung on the shelves before changing the POS pricing, this option should be checked on. When you generate tickets, the system will not send the pricing to the POS until you indicate the ticket batch is hung.

Use Central Accounting

Check this option if the location should use Central Accounting. (Client specific modification.)

Tax Free Sales

If the location makes tax-free sales, for example a duty-free store, this option should be checked on.

Tax Free Purchases

If the location makes tax-free purchases, for example a duty-free store, this option should be checked on.

Tax System

The tax system that this locations operates under. This will default to the Tax System set up on the Defaults tab in System Settings.

Primary Currency

The code of the currency that the location's sell prices will be in. This will default to the default Currency Code 1 set up on the Defaults tab in System Settings.

Secondary Currency

The code of the second currency that the location's sell prices will be shown in at POS. This will default to the default Currency Code 2 set up on the Defaults tab in System Settings.

Currency 3

The code of the second currency that the location's sell prices will be shown in at POS. This will default to the default Currency Code 3 set up on the Defaults tab in System Settings.

Management Area

The management area this location code will use for end of day reports. Management areas can control which departments and classifications a user can see. When a user logs on, the system will use the user's management area. However, if the system is doing a report for a location code as part of end of day processing, the system doesn't have a user management area to use to control the department/classification visibility. It will use this management area to perform that control. If a management area is not entered, the location will be able to see all departments and classifications when used on an end of day report.

Commission

This identifies the commission to be had for sales in this location.

MPOS Broker Address

The MPOS Broker is a web service which takes an XML feed from the BE MPOS Data Service and loads the MPOS devices with the data. Each BE location can be configured to talk to an MPOS Broker.

Include Service Charge in Tax-Free Sales Total in Reports

If selected the Item Sales by Dept report includes the service charge in the sales ex-tax total. This option only applies to the location you are reporting on.

Log Item-Based Gift Certificates with Tax

If selected the item-based gift certificate is logged with tax included in POSCREDIT.CURVALUE.

Local Statistics Location

The location code is used to generate 'local' currency statistics. This is mainly used if the system has locations which support different currencies. For example, BSHP1 might use AUD and BSHP2 uses GPB. You cannot view the trading statistics for BSHP1 and BSHP2 and simply add the numbers up as the currencies and not the same. Assuming the main currency code is AUD, the statistics for BSHP2 need to be converted to AUD. You can set up a new location called BSHP2LOCAL. The Local Statistics Location for BSHP2 would be BHSP2LOCAL. You can then use the Convert Local Statistics end of day job to move statistics from BSHP2 to BSHP2LOCAL. you can then view trading statistics for BSHP1 and BSHP2LOCAL because they are for the same currencies.

If the statistics are already in the correct currency, you do not need to enter a Local Statistics Location code.

Local Currency Statistics

Queue#

The queue number that this location is in. By default this will be zero. Queues are used in the Incoming Transactions Handler and Statistics Service to improve scalability of the system.

Booking Start Time Offset

This setting is used in conjunction with Stena bookings. It is the number of hours before the departure time that a booking for a specific trip can be used.

Booking End Time Offset

This setting is used in conjunction with Stena bookings. It is the number of hours after the departure time that a booking for a specific trip can be used.

Price Level 1-5

Each item can have up to five sell prices at one time. These prices can be used for specific purposes. For example, Sell Price 1 might be normal pricing. Sell Price 2 might be for happy hour pricing and Sell Price 3 might be for loyalty customer pricing. Use these fields to provide names for these sell prices. These names can be different across different locations. For example, bottleshops don't have happy hour pricing and so Sell Price 2 might be wholesale pricing instead of happy hour pricing.

TVLA

Allows entry of the TVLA registration number required by the television licencing authority in the UK.
