This tutorial is designed to guide you through the process of collecting sales data and understanding sales batches. Uniwell Lynx collects sales data from your POS terminals to provide detailed consolidated reporting, including sales totals, item and hourly sales, your electronic journal and much more. Whenever sales are collected from a terminal a sales batch is created. This sales batch contains the reports that were extracted from the terminal. The data in a sales batch must be processed before it will appear on sales reports in Uniwell Lynx.
To perform a Collect Sales:
- Go to the Communications menu and select Collect Sales
- Select the POS terminal/s you wish to collect sales data from
- To automatically process Sales Batches, tick the Process Sales Batches checkbox
- Click the Ok button
Once sales have been collected and sales batches have been processed, you can view your Sales Reports. To do so, go to the Sales menu and select Sales Reports. For further information on sales reports in Uniwell Lynx refer to our tutorial: Configuring Reports
- For the Collect Sales process to succeed, the POS terminals must be turned on, either in sales mode or the sign on screen.
