Selling items by weight via GiftLogic 2017 is no problem with Brecknell Bench Scale integration

GiftLogic point of sale software has integrated with various scales for several years, allowing merchants who sell weight-based items to easily ring them on an integrated scale. With GiftLogic 2017, this support is taken even further with the Brecknell Bench Scale integration. This scale integration nearly doubles the weight limit from 16 pounds to 30 pounds.

According to a representative from GiftLogic, "We're seeing all kinds of applications for scale integration. For example, coffee, deli meats, and produce are commonly sold by weight. However, many jewelry stores are now selling items by weight."

GiftLogic point of sale software is an affordable, comprehensive cash register and inventory management platform. Optional modules such as integrated credit card processing, gift registry, consignment, fingerprint integration, and QuickBooks integration are also available.

By integrating GiftLogic with the Brecknell 7600U, items can be designated as being sold by weight, immediately alerting the cashier to weigh the item at checkout. From there, the software calculates the cost based on the item's actual weight and the pricing parameters previously entered (such as cost per pound or ounce) and then populates the transaction accordingly.

Scale integration speeds transactions while also helping to reduce data entry errors. The cashier simply scans the item, places on the scale, and moves to the next item.

"From a functionality standpoint in GiftLogic, Brecknell Bench Scales work just like any other scale a merchant may have been using. This makes for a seamless transition for those who are switching scales," the representative explained. "Meanwhile, for new users, setup and usage are both easy."

Frozen Yogurt Business Streamlines Checkout Process with Brecknell 6720U

Located in Fairmont, MN, Graffiti Corner is a frozen treat and full service coffee lounge, complete with coffee drive-thru for that cup on the run. With 18 different frozen yogurt flavors, plus an extensive selection of 65 toppings, the venue selected the Brecknell 6720U as a simple yet effective way to charge by weight without slowing down the check-out process.

John Kasper, who owns and operates the business with his wife Patti, explains, "One of the products we sell is froyo (frozen yogurt). People come in and 'build their own' treat, starting with the frozen yogurt and then adding toppings. Once they have filled their cups, they bring the cup to the counter, weigh, pay and enjoy their delicious treat!"

Needless to say, for a business that relies on selling servings by the ounce, accurate weighing is extremely important. The Brecknell 6720U is a point-of-sale interface scale for linking to electronic cash registers or POS systems, making it an ideal choice for fast-paced retail environments. In the case of Graffiti Corner, this certified food-safe scale interfaces with Revel iPad POS software, speeding up transactions and avoiding any costly mistakes.

For John and Patti, both Fairmont born and raised, Graffiti Corner is more than their livelihood. The nod to local history is clear in the business name, which refers to the old lumberyard shed that served as a graffiti canvas for more than 50 years. Although the shed was knocked down to make way for the coffeehouse, John and Patti have made a feature of sections of weathered wood taken from the site. One 40 year-old panel bears the initials JK and PJ - John's initials and those of his then girlfriend and now wife, Patti Johnson.

John explains, "Community is extremely important to us and we hope that comes across as soon as people step through the door. However, as a business we also need to be sure that we are running as efficiently as possible. We chose this brand and model because it was part of an integrated POS system -something hard to find when it comes to the frozen yogurt side of our business. The Revel system allows the scale to sync with our POS software and calculate the price without us having to manually input the weight."

"The scale and linked POS has been extremely reliable and accurate. It streamlines our check-out process, which saves us valuable time and improves the customer experience. We are very pleased with it."
