Multiple functions, mini POS footprint
The average desktop computer, with its myriad cables and connections, can be a pain to manage. Same with a merchant's cash register, card reader and gift card rack - all separate. But the Blackstone Merchant Services Register System (BMSRS) combines all those capabilities into one compact system.
The BMSRS is designed to replace outmoded cash registers and POS terminals. It is said to save time and money by automating store operations at an affordable price. Its features include a dual interactive touch screen, PIN pad, keyboard, integrated cash drawer, bar code scanner and thermal receipt printer with 80mm thermal paper capability.
To simplify the customers' POS experience, the customer side of the dual touch screen, for instance, allows patrons to easily pay bills, purchase prepaid phone and gift cards, prepaid wireless recharge cards, and other specialty prepaid products.
The BMSRS runs on Microsoft POS and Microsoft Accounting 2007 software that connects POS and financial management processes.
A store manager can efficiently manage and track inventory on the system, sort multiple item characteristics by color, size and style, and track work orders, back orders and layaways. With the time clock feature, the BMSRS can manage employee hours.
Additionally, the BMSRS assigns role-based security and field-level security to employees and reduces loss and theft by efficiently managing and controlling inventory.
The BMSRS comes with technical and bilingual support. It has an optional bar code printer, programmable keyboard and pole display. A cash drawer bolted under the counter is one of many setup options.
