Readysell 8.56 Sylvester now rolling out

Readysell 8.56 Sylvester now rolling out

We’re pleased to announce that Readysell 8.56 (codename Sylvester) is rolling out to all of our Readysell 8 customers. Once again, this release is focused on implementing feedback from the Readysell advisory groups and forums.

Start common tasks quicker with function key navigation

Readysell is now making use of the function keys to allow you to execute common scenarios or get to common screens more quickly. These keys are customisable, but by default you can now use the following:

  • F2 – Show cards list
  • F3 – Show products list
  • F4 – New sale order
  • F6 – New purchase order
  • F7 – New sale shipment
  • F8 – New purchase receipt
  • F9 – Reprint last transaction

Reduce training and speed up with our new dedicated Point of Sale screen

In your navigation panel, under “Sales” you will now see a new option called “Point of Sale”. This will bring up a simplified screen for entering sales at POS.

We’ve eliminated many of the distractions that exist on the regular sale shipment screen which were not relevant specifically to Point of Sale scenarios and made the screen elements bigger and easier to see on smaller screens. We’ve also added buttons to quickly tender cash and card sales.

Based on feedback, over time we will continue to improve this screen to provide an even better POS experience.

Get your list and analysis reports delivered to your inbox automatically

Automate all the things!

Readysell has long allowed you to schedule form reports to automatically generate to a folder and to email/print the result. We’ve now extended this functionality to list reports and analysis reports. Click the “Schedule” tab on either of these reports and set up one or more scheduled parameters to execute on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Reduce errors with customer tender mode selection

Customer cards in Readysell can have a “customer tender” set against them. Historically, if this has been filled in, it meant that Readysell would always use this tender when a sale was entered for the customer.

There are, however, some scenarios where customers may wish to purchase with a specific tender the majority of the time, but change that on occasion (for example, a customer may walk in and wish to pay using cash or card instead of putting something on account).

To facilitate this, you can now set a “Tender Mode” on the card – either “Enforce” (the old behaviour) or “Default” – which will prepopulate the tender you’ve chosen into the tender screen, but allow the operator to change it if they wish.
