Idealpos has the ability to offer a professional and integrated solution for service stations that also want to use the Idealpos Point of Sale System. Many systems cannot integrate between the services that are required in these unique environments, but the solution provided by Idealpos can do just that and more.
Although it seems like a simple thing, to put a POS System into a service station, it is anything but. Service stations on their own require professional and regulated equipment that performs time and again with repeated use, usually by the general public who give no thought to how fuel is delivered, stored, supplied and equated.
At the same time, being able to run a service station that sells more than just fuel, from hot pies, cold drinks, ice cream, newspapers and other grocery type items, requires a specialized Point of Sale system that can handle it.
Idealpos has written an interface with the POSTEC Fuel Console, which seamlessly integrates the best of both worlds. Incorporating world class Point of Sale functionality from Idealpos, with regulated and certified POSTEC Fuel control software and hardware, a service station can be up to date with the latest in technology.

Many service stations will have a lot of repeat business from local business operators requiring fuel and other items for their fleet of vehicles. Using Sub-Accounts, you can have a Master Account that is setup for the business as a whole, with each sub-account keeping track of each vehicle or employees transactions.
Stock-taking is easy, fast and flexible with Ideal POS System. All Our sales data is sent in real-time,with our stock-take procedure allowing the operator to take a’snap-shot’ of the current stock levels before commencing a stock-take.Once the stock has been physically counted, the operator can start selling the items even without finalizing the stock-take procedure and entring the stock-take into the system.
Once the stock-take has been entered and variance and valuation reports printed, the updated stock levels will then be re-calculated to provide the system with a new opening stock level.
Scales can be connected to your ideal POS system so each weighed item can have its price per kilo pre-programmed, allowing accurate sales entry and speedy service.Items can be ticked as ‘scale items’ in the database, which matches the item to the weight from the scale. Ideal POS System supports most scale brands including Mettler Toledo, PSC Magellan, Digi, Tec, Cas and Acom. Items that have already been weighed and labeled with the price can be scanned, with the ’programmable barcode’ allowing for the retrieval of the price and the product code from the barcode number.
If your service station includes fresh goods that require weight measurement at the point of sale, Idealpos integrates with many different scale options that can fill this requirement.
EFTPOS terminals can be interfaced directly to ideal POS System to eliminate operator mistakes and improve speed of service.When customers choose to pay by EFTPOS,simply select an EFTPOS tender to finalise the sale and EFTPOS software will complete the process and print the receipts.
