    Cloud POS // What's new in this release? February 2018

    New Style

    We've applied a new style to the Backoffice of Cloud POS - making the presentation crisper, easier to read and made improvements for tablets.


    Gift Vouchers

    Gift voucher functionality has now been added to Cloud POS and Citrus-Lime Ecommerce. Vouchers can be created through POS, redeemed both in POS and Citrus-Lime Ecommerce, and edited (cancelled & end date amended) through Back Office. 

    Click here for more information on how to set up your voucher scheme.


    New customer search panel in POS

    There's a new Customer Search panel in POS, which allows you to type-to-search with results instantly loading beneath the search bar. The search looks at Name, Postcode and/or Email, and gives you the option to create a new customer should no results be found. 



    Offline Inventory

    Offline Inventory is now available in Cloud POS - this allows you to isolate stock units which are not "fit for sale" i.e. Faulty items or Demo units. Stock can be manually moved into the Offline Inventory, or can be moved during the return process in POS, adding a Comment and a Reason code for the move. Additional statuses are available within Offline Inventory to help you track your stock - 'Returned to Supplier' and 'Demo'. 


    Workshop - Check in at POS, Mechanic view, Holidays

    There have been multiple improvements made to the Workshop Module. 

    Being able to Check In a workshop job in the POS whilst creating the job.

    A Mechanic view within the Workshop Module allowing you to split the calendar by mechanics.

    Holiday functionality which allows you to block out time in the calendar for staff holidays.


    Auto-logout cashier at end of each transaction

    There is a new configuration option which allows you to force a logout at the end of each transaction. This means that cashiers need to log-in for every transaction, meaning more accurate reporting of who has put through the sale. 


    Security Levels

    A new security model has been implemented, extending the current functionality to offer further restrictions on cashier/users access to back office and POS functionality. This includes 5 different levels of access - Cashier, Full Cashier, Supervisor, Back Office, Administrator

    More information on security levels can be found here


    Inter-store Transfers

    Through the POS, inter-store transfers can now be created for stock which is available from other stores. Select stock from stock or inbound stock at other stores and create a transfer to request that the stock is sent / posted to your store to fulfil an order. 

    More information on inter-store transfers can be found here


    Orders can be moved between stores

    We've added a new feature for multi-store setups which allows customer orders to be moved between stores. When the order is moved the Committed stock is updated at both locations, and any deposits already made against the order will be moved with it. There will be a report available in Cloud Reports which shows the total value of deposits moved, should it be required for accounting purposes. You can also send an email to the 'receiving' store to notify them of the new order in their store. This is available through POS and back office.


    Was/Now label print format

    There is a new item label format available which shows a Was/Now price. It shows the highest of MSRP or Price as the Was field, and the lowest of Price or Sale Price as the Now field. To change the format on your setup, this is available as a configuration option against each Label Printer. 


    Change calculator in POS

    There is a change calculator available when entering your closing amounts to generate an X/Z Report. This allows you to enter the number of each coin and get a cash total which is populated into your Cash tender type. 



    Closing amounts now saved when generating an X Report

    Closing amounts are now saved and printed when generating an X Report - for easier reconciliation in the end of day process, as you can see up/down amounts per tender before closing the batch and committing the figures.



    Quick price view functionality

    There is a new quick price lookup control which is available through POS and Backoffice which allows you to see all Price levels for an item.


    Wildcard search added for faster lookups

    A wildcard search feature has been added to item and customer grids in the back office and POS - this search looks through all fields in the grid e.g. on the customers grid - last name, first name and email will all be searched.
