Cashiers may login into the POS with a secure login card or with their user name and password. If the cashier isn't yet clocked in for the day, Cash Register Express will clock them in. The manager button on the top of the screen can be used to access back office functions such as reporting and menu management. The picture and colors of this screen can be modified to match the style of your store.
Items can be rung up by simply scanning the barcode on the product being purchased. If a product does not have a bar code, such as candy by the register, it can be added to the transaction by simply touching a button for that item on the touch screen. Sale pricing and any applicable taxes will automatically be calculated and displayed in a real-time running total. Taking payment from the customer is just as fast. Cash amounts can be quickly typed in, with hot keys for common dollar amounts. If the customer is paying by credit or debit card, the cashier simply swipes the card to process the transaction.
Cash Register Express and Restaurant Pro Express provides the convenience of their Self Service feature, this feature allows you to utilize your POS as a kiosk or a separate POS terminal for your customers to ring in their own items in a quick and convenient manner. After the order is placed either generate a ticket with a bar code to be scanned and paid for at the register…or swipe your credit card to pay immediately.
Sale pricing, bulk pricing and mix 'n match are all features that can be pre-configured and calculated automatically in CRE. Sale pricing allows you to set up a time-based sale for each item. With bulk pricing, retailers can sell multiple items at a discount - simply select the quantity and special pricing to offer 2 for 1 or 3 for 1 sales on the same item. Our mix 'n match features allows retailers to offer a special price for quantities of multiple items. Time-based pricing functionality allows retailers to set sale pricing for certain hours of the day.
pcAmerica POS software, Cash Register Express / Restaurant Pro Express has the capability of emailing customer receipts and vendors purchase orders.

Suspend/Recall on Hold Transactions
Our POS software lets you suspend a transaction to allow another transaction to be processed, then recall the previous sale and tender it. This feature comes in handy when you have more than one person waiting to checkout and the customer realizes that they left their wallet in the car or forgot to pick up an item. Instead of having to cancel the sale or make another customer wait, you can place the transaction on hold and recall it when ready.
Gift Receipts/Gift Registry
CRE enables retailers to offer gift receipts, create gift registries and sell gift baskets. CRE offers customers the ability to use gifts receipts. These receipts may be presented as proof of a transaction for the purpose of exchanging or returning merchandise, omitting certain information such as price.
Cash Register Express also offers the ability to create gift registries for birthdays, weddings, baby showers, holidays or other special occasions. Customers can select items from store stock to populate the registry. Upon the purchase of a listed item, CRE automatically updates the registry accordingly. In addition to providing valuable information to the buyer, the system helps prevent the receipt of duplicate or unwanted gifts thus eliminating the potential for returns to the retailer.
Many gift shops sell gift baskets otherwise known as "kits" in which you select a group of items to be sold together at a discounted price. With kitting capability, you can sell any number of items to a customer for one special price while tracking the individual inventory levels of each item that makes up the gift. Cash Register Express will deduct each component from inventory when this kit is sold.
Whether your business is a clothing, shoe or related retail store, Cash Register Express makes it easy to track inventory with many variations of sizes and colors. When you enter a new product into inventory, simply assign it to a group along with a size and color. View and manage all items within a group on a matrix style screen to see what is in stock for each variation. Easily and quickly create purchase orders for inventory that is low in stock.
Kits and Item Grouping
Robust functionality enables users to offer mixed case discounts, discount items sold by the case, break down inventory by the case, 6 pack or 12 pack, group multiple products into gift packages and allows retailers to offer special promotions. CRE automatically adjust inventory at the item level when multiple products are sold as part of a kit.
EBT & Food Stamps
To meet the needs of grocery stores, convenience stores and other retailers that sell food items, Cash Register Express can process transactions involving EBT (electronic food stamps) and food stamps. Simply swipe the EBT card through the mag stripe reader on your POS system to redeem electronic food stamps and restrict the purchase of items that are not authorized to be purchased with food stamps.
Cash Register Express offers a Split Commission feature which allows a manager to determine which salesperson gets credit for each item on an invoice. This allows multiple salespeople to receive commission on the same invoice. Easily track commissions by a percentage of the gross sale, percentage of the gross profit or a set actual dollar amount.
Looking for an easy and effective way to change prices on multiple items at once? Our new Price Batch feature allows mass updating of prices based on a set schedule. It also allows you to select a list of items, departments or items with specific properties to do global price change (sale price, bulk price, price change, etc.). Schedule the price change reflect the "new" prices on a certain day and time.
Weight Scale Integration
Cash Register Express POS software integrates seamlessly with three types of POS scales: POS Interface Scales, Scanner/Scales and Deli Scales. POS software must conform to the regulations set forth at the Department of Weights and Measures. Cash Register Express software is NTEP Certified by the National Conference on Weights and Measures.
