Multi-Level Button Panel
iVend 5.7 supports creating a multilevel button panel for quick product entry at the Point of Sale. This feature will enable the user to assign a product, product group, product category and matrix items to a button thus enabling the user to organize buttons in a drill down hierarchy. The quick button panel configurations are attached to Retail Profile thus providing absolute flexibility to have different button panels at Store / POS / Cashier Level.
iVend 5.7 is integrated with CitiXsys’s new subscription based service which will enable Retailers to distribute Gift Cards and Coupons to end consumers as digital passes on their iPhones (with IOS 6 and above) and Android Phones (coming soon). End Consumers will be able to store & view their digital Gift Cards and Coupons in the Passbook application on the iPhone. These digital passbooks are updated on the end consumer’s device via push notifications and will display information such as current balance on Gift Cards, Expiration date for Coupons and nearly all passes have a scan-able bar code so end consumers need not carry plastic or paper tickets to the store for redemption. More details on this is available at https://www.ivend.com/ivend-passes/
