With the Point of Sales system, NP Retail, retailers save resources on bookkeeping and managing inventory status as all data from NP Retail is automatically transferred to Dynamics 365 Business Central. In this video you will see a sale. How the sales order shows up in Business Central and how the sale affects the inventory level.
In this case a ”Festina Chronograf” watch is used as an example. Let’s start by checking the inventory level of this watch by using the lookup-function. This function lists all the products on sale. The watch is quickly found, and at the right, you can see that the current inventory level of this watch is 3.
Now a customer wants to buy a ”Festina Chronograf” watch. In the POS the sales person easily finds the product, by pressing first the “Watches” button, and then the ”Gentlemen” button. When the sales person presses the button that says ”Festina Chronograf”, the watch is added as a sales line here in the top left corner. The sales person chooses “Go To Payment” and “Cash”, and enters the amount. Back in the POS window, it shows how much change the customer should get back. The sale is completed, and the POS is ready for a new sale.
Now, let’s take a look at how the order shows up in Business Central. To check the effect in Business Central, I navigate to ”Audit Roll”, and here – written in bold and blue – you can see the entries that the sale has created in Business Central.
Just for illustration, let’s check how the sale has affected the inventory level of the ”Festina Chronograf” watch. Here is the watch… and here at the right you can see that the current inventory level is now 2, instead of 3.
