What is i-Stock – Cashless Catering Management Software
i-Stock is the administration module for the cashless payments and EPOS units, it is web-based, which means that it can be operated on any permitted device on your network from any location with the correct user permissions and access level.
It manages the products, sale items or fees. In fact, all services are available for sale. The system also manages all the EPOS units that are associated with the system.
They work in essence in master and slave relationship, the system constantly checks connections with all units, to alert if there is an issue with the units communicating and updating. an example of a report showing the systems updating and managing communication, if we are issuing meal deals or FSM allowances it is important that the units are able to query the users balance from any unit anywhere on the system even if there are WAN and communication issues.
i-Stock is used to hold stock information, it can manage bulk imports as well as single item entry, it assigns products to categories and using drag and drop facilitates the building of till sheets.
You already understand that an administrator has full user rights for both i-Stock and i-Till, however, there are other user roles within the system, for instance:-
- An Operator, who is only able to use the till system and not i-Stock
- A Reporter who will only see the reports within i-Stock and not be able to use i-till.
This will mean that their login details will only provide the views that are eligible to them, for anyone who has the permissions required to operate the tills they can do this in two different ways, by entering a pin number or simply tapping their ID Cards against a till Mifare readers.
