Wife brought home some lit the other night about the new POS system they're installing. Equipment wise, nothing "new" just swapping the keyboard and monitors for touchscreens and badge login/punch-in over keying in their ID numbers. What stuck out was this: They're going over to a unified cash drawer. Meaning the opening manager pulls down 1 drawer at the opening of the day and all cashiers and managers use that drawer, just log in for each transaction so the transaction are divided up by ID numbers. The odd part was that the lit says that software can tell who is short and over at the end of the night and assign liability accordingly at the end of the business day. Not just who is short on checks, coupons, or credit/debit slips, but cash shortage as well. Actually that's a big selling point in the lit: be able to see who is cash shorting a drawer. So I'm scratching my head: if you have 5 or 6 people running on one drawer, how the hell is that thing going to know who screwed the pooch on the cash side of it? They're not adding any extra equipment, just swapping monitors and keyboards. So it can't be scales or security tag scanners. I just can't figure out how it would "know".
