PSS 5000 allows loyalty, wetstock and remote price control without needing a POS or OPT on site
On sites without a POS or OPTs, payments are handled manually by an attendant, often in cash.
For such scenarios, Doms provides a special PSS 5000 software version with functionality, such as that listed below, which is normally handled by a POS system:
- Price setting: locally via the PSS 5000 web or remotely via the Doms Host Protocol (from Site Info)
- Manual or automatic creation of daily reports (sales vs stock changes)
- Transaction handling for loyalty terminals
- Managing tank deliveries
By using the transaction data provided by the PSS 5000 and combining it with the wet stock inventory and delivery data available from the Tank Gauge System, the PSS 5000 can create Reconciliation Reports. These show the actual wet stock movements and highlight irregularities between the transaction data and the tank gauge data, which can indicate fraudulent behavior or possible leaks. Moreover, the PSS 5000 also sends data to external reconciliation applications, such as a tank gauge system or a central application like Site Info.
The Service Menus available via the web server inside the PSS 5000 enable you to change the prices for a site manually either locally or from a remote location. Prices can also be uploaded to a network of sites via the Doms Host Protocol from Site Info. The PSS 5000 allows price changes to take place at any time without them affecting any transactions that are in progress.
Setting Date and Time
The PSS 5000 date and time is normally set by the POS in order to keep the PSS synchronized with the POS system. In stand-alone scenarios, date and time can be set via the PSS Web or the Doms Host Protocol using Site Info.
Transactions for Loyalty Terminals
By storing the data for the latest transactions, it is possible for an attendant to read the transaction data electronically (via a loyalty terminal) and add the sale to the customer’s loyalty account and/or print a receipt.
