Card Machine Integration
We now support full integration between our software “Lexpos Retailer” and PaymentSense (Merchant Services provider).
If this is something you would be interested in, give us a call on 01254 582456 and we will give you all the information you need to get integrated!
You can now use Lexpos Retailer to record how long you work each day.
To do this simply click the Clock In/Out button on the log in screen:
After clicking this button, scan your log in card or type in your log in code to register that you are clocking in/out of the system.
Note: If you haven’t clocked in, the system will clock you in, if you are already clocked in, the system will clock you out.
To view timing records collected by clocking in/out, simply go to the reports tab and select “Clock In/Out Report”:
Or select this icon on the main sales screen:
To generate a report use the two panels on the left to select which user(s) you would like and the time scale you would like to cover (you can use the “preview” button to get a preview of what the report will look like).
Once you are happy with the user(s) selected and the date range, use the “Send to Report” button to produce a report that tells you how much the user(s) worked throughout the specified date range.
Note: If a user fails to log out on a day, the time sheet/report will be left blank and the report will have to be manually altered to reflect the missing time.
