The design of the Visitor information Centre provides the visitor with a visual experience of the many attractions and events available in York. The EPOS terminals are conveniently located so that visitors may purchase tickets for the events, accommodation,maps and information booklets as well as gifts and mementos of their York visit.
The EPOS system uses the very latest Tysso touch screen terminals and automatically prints event tickets and with chip&pin terminals integrated with the Poswyse Software ensures visitors experience a fast and efficient service at the point of sale.
The IPOS system uses the Tysso 7000 touch screen terminal which has a 15" touch screen and in built processor making it a compact unit which does not take up valuable selling space. The fast touch screen operation is complemented with a voyager laser scanner for quick and easy input of transactions.The fast Tysso thermal receipt printer not only prints customer receipts but also the card authorisation slips which means all transactions are completed efficiently. The other benefits of using integrated chip & pin are that it is much faster than separate devices as the transaction only needs to inputted once and it also means no reconciliation issues at the end of the day. Poswyse software also prints tickets from Star TSP 1000 ticket printer with the event logo so that all visitor requirements are met within the same transaction. The IPOS cash drawer is hidden under the counter which makes it more secure in this open plan environment.
All the EPOS terminals are networked to the back office computer system which uses the Poswyse Software to provide consolidated,up to date , accurate sales information as well as stock control.
