Introduction

The user at the POS scans the barcode of the product when it is being transacted and swipes the privilege or other cards for customers/security users. The system follows a sequence of methods in attempting to resolve a barcode to a product or a card swipe to a customer/security user stopping the search when it successfully matches them.. The resolution order is as follows:

Scan Sequence

1. Weighted Item

System checks if the scanned barcode resembles the barcode of a weighted item. If the barcode matches with the barcode defined of a weighted item then the resulted product is added in the transaction with the weight defined in the barcode.

2. Barcode of the Product

The system first picks the UPC code of the product. The UPC Code is entered in the Product Screen. When the system identifies the product mapped against the UPC, it displays the product details on the POS transaction screen

3. Product Id

The system then checks the Product Id. When the system identifies the product mapped against the Product Id, it displays the product details on the POS transaction screen.

 

4. Multiple UPC code for the Product

The system then checks the various UPC codes setup for the products. The multiple UPC Codes are defined for the product in the Alternate UPC Code master. When the system identifies the product mapped against the UPC, it displays the product details on the POS transaction screen. 

5. Serial Number

The system then checks the Serial Number of the products.  When the system identifies the product mapped against the Serial Number, it displays the product details on the POS transaction screen. 

6. Batch Number

The system then checks if it is a Batch Number of a product. When the system identifies the product mapped against the batch number, it displays the product details on the POS transaction screen. 

7. Matched with Part Number/ Code from Customer Catalog

The system will then check for the code setup for the products in the Customer Catalog. The Codes are defined for the product in the Customer Catalog as maintained by the customer. When the system identifies the product mapped against the Code, it displays the product details on the POS transaction screen. 

8. Customer Code

If none of the above codes are matching with the code scanned/swiped, the system checks the code against the customer codes setup in the system. The code of the customer is displayed at the Customer Information at POS. 

9. Customer Tax Number

If none of the above codes are matching with the code scanned/swiped, the system checks the code against the customer tax number setup in the system. On finding the customer the customer is displayed at the Customer Information at POS. 

10. Sales Person

If none of the above codes are matching with the code scanned/swiped, the system checks for the sales person codes setup in the system to check if the POS user has swiped the card of the Sales Person to change the sales person for the current transaction.

11. Product Description

If the codes mentioned above don’t match with the code scanned /swiped the system checks for the product description .The product description is specified in the Product Screen. When the system identifies the product mapped against the product description, it displays the product details on the POS transaction screen. 

12. Customer First Name

If none of the above codes are matching with the code scanned/swiped, the system checks the code against the customer first name setup in the system. The code of the customer is displayed at the Customer Information at POS.

13.Customer Last Name

If none of the above codes are matching with the code scanned/swiped, the system checks the code against the customer last name setup in the system. The code of the customer is displayed at the Customer Information at POS.

14. Transaction ID

Next, the system checks for the Id of the transaction entered at the POS. When the system identifies the transaction, it displays the transaction details on the POS screen. 

15.Suspended Transaction ID

Next, the system checks for the Id of the transaction entered at the POS. When the system identifies the Suspended transaction, it displays the transaction recall screen on the POS. From here the user can recall the transaction and then continue with the suspended transaction. 

16.Coupon ID

Lastly, the system checks to find out if the scanned barcode is an Id of the coupon setup in the system. When the system identifies the Coupon then it applies that coupon in the transaction and based on the coupon setup, the relevant discount is applied on the items added in the transaction.
