Scale integration is a new option for merchants using GiftLogic Point of Sale software. Using a compatible scale and GiftLogic POS software, merchants can seamlessly ring up items that are sold by weight such as coffee, bulk candy, deli items, and produce.
According to a GiftLogic spokesperson, "While many of our customers use scales in conjunction with GiftLogic POS, we realized that scale integration could expedite checkout, as well as, eliminate data entry errors. Once items are set up within GiftLogic, clerks simply scan the item and place it on the scale. The software automatically calculates the total cost based on the item's weight."
GiftLogic's scale integration feature is optional and suitable for retailers that sell weight-based items. "We support one of the most popular scales from Avery Berkel, the NCI 6712 which easily connects to a computer," the spokesperson said. "We recommend this particular model because it is easy to use and has a small 10 by 10 inch footprint. In addition, set up is a snap!"
The spokesperson further explained how GiftLogic works for merchants. Merchants enter weight-based items into the system and assign the appropriate price per unit of measure. For example, a deli owner selling Swiss cheese by the pound would enter the item's name and description, select pound as the unit of measure, and enter the price per pound. When a customer purchases a block of Swiss cheese, the clerk would select the item as usual (either via touchscreen, scanner, or manual entry) and place the cheese on the scale. From there, GiftLogic automatically rings up the item with the correct price based on its weight.
"It works just like the far more expensive systems used in corporate-owned grocery chains," the spokesperson said. "And it's just as easy to manage and use. Most importantly, our scale integration improves the customer's experience by expediting the transaction and eliminating errors.
