Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Intuit has long been looking to add to it’s Point of Sale capability. They wanted a system that would enable iPad usage, cloud based storage, and a connection with the QuickBooks Online accounting.

They recently partnered with RevelPOS. Revel has been on the market for several years offering a cloud based system that would ring sales through an iPad, work when internet connectivity failed.

Now, with the partnering, Intuit offers an alternative to the desktop QuickBooks Point of Sale, and is beginning to fill the gaps in business areas where the desktop version just did not fit well.

Revel pioneered a hybrid technology that allows it to operate, even when the connection to the internet has been lost.

Their hardware and software package comes configured to connect and operate together out of the box.

The Revel system is based on two components. An Administrator back end that is accessed through a web browser ( Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Chrome are recommended as the Admin access does not work well with Internet Explorer),

revelmanagement

and a register interface that is accessed through the iPad.

Changes made on the administrator side are pushed to the iPad side, in some cases requiring you to close and reopen the iPad application, but they are by their very nature extremely fast. There is a capability to handle multiple locations, to set a variety of Basic and advanced settings, and to perform some functions the Desktop Version does not have the capability to do, as an example, commission rates are set on the item, not the employee. The rewards program is a point based system, where you can set the points generated by a purchase, and the points needed to redeem for a particular item.

One are that Revel does encompass is the Quick Serve café. It can take into account the ingredients that make up a dish, and can send the receipt to both the Receipt Printer and a kitchen printer. There is even a customer facing display that is built around an iPad mini, so that your menu’s or your chosen content can be shown to the customer at the register.

This is a different POS than we are used to, and while Intuit is starting with a Retail and Quick Serve versions, Revel has other versions that may be brought into the family as time progresses.

We will add more content as time goes on. And while this is not a cheap system, it appears to be a capable one.

 

What are some of the changes in the new QuickBooks Point of Sale V12 (2015)?

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Intuit released the QuickBooks Point of Sale version 12 (2015) desktop software late last year.

Some of the changes that are of note include:

Multi-Tasking- In the past, if you were in the middle of receiving inventory, or went to look up an item, whatever transaction you had open had to be held. Once you competed, you had to go back to the transaction and unhold it to continue. Or in some cases, looking up an item would cause the receipt to be auto-held, or moved to an in-progress status.

With the version 12, there is a new Windows tab, where you can drop down and see all of the currently open transactions. No need to unhold the voucher, it is still open.

Confusion on which item you are editing on a receipt? Now the selected item highlights in a contrasting color, so you can tell at a glance which one is selected.

Sort on Receipts-

Have you ever wanted to sort the items on a Receipt or Voucher by one of the columns?  Now you can.

Item History-

Now you can access the entire item history from the item, or even the Customer screen.

Keyboard Shortcuts-

Many of our customers that had become used to using keyboard shortcuts in earlier versions. Many of those have been brought back.

One thing we noted through testing was that the software loads much faster than either Version 10 or 11(2013). Overall, I have been pleased with the stability of the version 12, and hope that more capabilities will be added in the future.

 

Error: Windows Administrator Required, when opening Point of Sale.

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 In some cases, when you try to login to QuickBooks Point of Sale, you will receive a message that says the following:

Windows Administrator Required.

Why is this happening?

 There is an Internal user name that is associated with the program. That name may have been reset.

 Intuit recomends uninstalling and reinstalling the software to correct this, but in many cases, this is not sufficient.

 To resolve the issue:

 Go to the Control Panel, Administrative tools, Services.

 Stop the Intuit Entitlement Client, and the QBPOS Database managers.

 Go to c:\users\Public\Public Documents\Intuit\QuickBooks Point of Sale folder for your version.

 Copy the Data folder to the desktop.

You will need to Uninstall the software using an intensive uninstalling tool, such as Revo Uninstaller, and remove the folders and entries for them program.

 Then, reinstall the program. Do Not Open QB POS at this point.

 Copy the Data folder from the desktop back to the original location.

Open QB POS and allow it to update.

 Then attempt to open the company data.

 If this fails, you may need additional support.

 

Intuit Announces partnership with Revel POS. Now Online POS that links to QuickBooks online!

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Intuit, the makers of QuickBooks, Quicken, TurboTax, Enterprise and QuickBooks Point of Sale have announced that they have formed a partnership. Revel POS is a cloud based POS system that will function on an iPad, and will now send it’s sales data to QuickBooks Online.

Revel has had iPad applications for Point of Sale for several years. They include several specialty POS systems, such as one designed for a grocery store that will integrate with scales.

Through this partnership, Intuit customers gain a stable online POS system ( it will also work offline if the connection drops) and the capability to send the sales data to the QuickBooks Online version.

We will bring more on this as we find out more information.

 

Windows update effecting QuickBooks Point of Sale connections!

Questions on the software? Call us at 800-609-0788!

 

Recently, Microsoft released a series of updates to improve security on the Windows operating systems. After the updates have installed, we have seen a trend of systems where the client registers are unable to connect to the data. They will reach the point of “Checking License” then fail with the message “ QB POS has encountered an error and needs to close”.

Editing the Windows Firewall to add the program exceptions, and manually inserting the ports into the firewall rules has no effect.

In Windows 7 and 8, it is possible to turn off the Windows Firewall for Home and Private networks, but leave the firewall on for Public Networks, and regain the connection to the data.

On older versions of Windows, turning the Windows Firewall off seems to be the only recourse at this time.

Researching the issue has revealed that the Windows Firewall logs are not indicating what they are blocking in this instance, so determining what is actually being blocked has proven fruitless.

We will continue to research the issue to see if there is a way to locate the blocked files and re-enable the Windows Firewall.
