FREE – Secondary Customer Display (software only) –
If you are using the latest version of Windows such as Windows XP, Vista or greater, it now supports multiple monitors on one computer. The Point of Sale can now have one monitor facing the customer and one monitor facing the clerk with the the invoicing screen facing your clerk.
* This Secondary monitor will scroll advertisements you have previously setup to include JPG and GIF files as well as animated files. By setting timers you can determine how long an ad appears and you can also tie a specific ad to certain inventory items. You have the ability to set different dates for different ads to show. Your receipt shows once it is started for the customer and when a specific item is scanned, the tied ad comes up to remind the customer to purchase other items associated with the original item purchased. This is great for UP-SELLING.
Colors, wording, backgrounds and much more are all definable within an easy setup screen by you, the store owner.
