Open POSIM’s point of sale system. At the top of the “Navigator,” click on the version icon (V) – it is directly next to the question mark icon (?). Opening the version icon (V) will open a window containing details about the software, including the version of POSIM you currently use.
A database may be authorized online by opening POSIM and navigating to the General Preferences. Once within the pos system, open the POSIM Navigator and click on General Preferences > Authorization.
Click on the “Authorize online” button. If the information listed in the Authorization window matches POSIM’s records, you will receive a message indicating that the authorization was successful. If an online authorization is not successful, please contact POSIM Tech Support at 1.800.553.9314 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
POSIM has two preference options: General Preferences and Computer Preferences. Both General Preferences and Computer Preferences are found under the Administration section on the POSIM Navigator.
General Preferences are settings that are saved database-wide, such as Sales Tax, Customer ID Numbering and more.
Computer Preferences are settings that can be saved to each local machine, such as Receipt, Cash Drawer and more.
Open POSIM and on the Navigator open Administration > Employee Administration. Click on the plus (+) button at the top of the card and give the new employee a username in addition to any other details. Assign the employee a password by clicking on the “Change password” button. To make any employee a salesperson, click on the “Is Salesperson” checkbox on the employee card.
A client computer uses connection information including an IP address and database name to connect to a database. The database connection screen can be opened by clicking on the green circle within the Navigator. In this window, enter the server’s IP address and database name. If you do not know what your server’s IP address and database name are, you can find it by going to the server computer and clicking on the version icon (V) at the top of the Navigator. Look for the Local IP Address and Server (DB) Database Name listed in this window.
If your receipt printer stops working it may be due to one of the following reasons: the receipt printer is out of paper, the status of the printer is paused or offline, the print queue is held up, or the printer cable connections are not tight or may be bad.
If you are using integrated credit card processing (PayStream or PayStream SI) the settings in POSIM are found by going to by the Navigator, open Administration > General Preferences > PayStream. Enter the IP address of the PayStream server and other relevant information in this window.
