The LobbyPMS Point of Sale (POS) system allows you to efficiently generate and record product sales of your customers.
You should first configure all product categories and product names before proceeding to use the system to process transactions.
Enter the Point of Sale system from the main menu by selecting the POS button link. You can also access directly from any page within LobbyPMS. Click on the Menu header in the title bar, and then selecting the cash register icon from the list of shortcuts.
You will see products are organized by categories. By selecting a category you will then be displayed with a list of products within the same category. You can then chose these products to add to the customers bill.
Note: If multiple quantities of the same product is being sold then this must be selected the relevant number of times. For example: If a customer is purchasing 5 sodas, the user should click that product 5 times.
As you can see in the images below, you will fist be met with a list of categories followed by items to chose from.
After selecting an item it will be added to the current bill and reflected in the total price. This bill is then ready to be paid by the customer, either immediately or added to a room account. If the account is paid there and then by the customer you have two ways in which to charge them, either as an express sale or as an external client.
If you are going to charge to a customers room account, then simply use the search/drop down box to find the customer by their name, or their room number
By selecting express sale you can immediately enter the payment.
Using the External client option you can enter a customer name/company table number etc and you will have the option to leave the account open to to be settled later.
NOTE: Open accounts can be used for bills which will be settled at a later time and where more items will be ordered. For example, a bar or restaurant bill.
By selecting the 'Search for guest' , you can scroll through a list of all guests currently registered, or use the search box to type the room number/name. Its also possible to search by the name of the client who the room is registered to.
When ever a bill is ready to be settled you simply click the button "Payment Methods" to open a new window to complete the transaction with the relevant payment method.
