POS Setup

Veezi POS setup is divided into two seperate sections. First, you need to complete in back office, the various tasks relating to POS. Once done, you will then be ready to setup Veezi on the POS Terminal(s). If you don't do the first tasks, you'll have a POS with no information! 

POS Pre-requisites

For any items to be displayed at POS, you need to first set up your various films, programming and concessions as per the 'getting started' process when you first load Veezi on your back office computer. Only then, will you be ready to go and install POS. The specific tasks to achieve this are, as follows. Films, Ticket Prices, Shows, Food, Users. 

Films: Before you can sell tickets you need films to sell tickets to! Initially, just copy films from the Veezi Master List. It will provide all the basic information you will need to get started. You can add your own unique films/events as required later on. 

Ticket Prices: Once you've imported the various ticket types you are going to use, you'll then need to add prices to them as well. 

Shows: To sell tickets, you need a show to sell them to. Here you will add show times to the films you're intending to exhibit in your cinema. 

Food: If you are selling concessions (e.g. food/drinks etc), you will need to add those items and associated prices there. For an item to be displayed at POS you need to give it a button on your concession profile. On this page (found via 'Concession Profiles' in the Settings menu) you can add buttons to one of the concession profiles that we've already created for you. To add a button you just click on one of the squares in the layout, and select an item from the drop down. You can edit more than one button before saving.

Users: Each POS user will need their own user number and PIN to login to POS. 

Once you have completed the above steps, you will then be ready to start the process of installing Veezi POS. Concessions are organised into pages and the screens are laid out using bold colours and - if you wish - product logos or images. You can configure POS individually for each operator or the same way for your entire cinema. 

Concession options and upgrades can be set and then presented complete with screen prompts when the product button is clicked. Again, this is configurable for each individual POS operator.

If your operators need it there is a cash order handling screen with all local currency denominations pictured. This screen allows operators to calculate change, split checks and accept vouchers.
