About Catapult’s Patent-Pending ScaleAware™
This patent-pending feature greatly expedites the processing of weighted items at the point of sale by eliminating key strokes. When this option is turned on, if the POS detects a settled weight on the scale, it automatically displays the produce/bulk menu for the cashier, rather than forcing them to access it manually by pressing a button each time a weighted item must be rung in.
Automated Item Menu Creation – Never Build Another Menu Again!
From CATPULT® Web Office, Item Maintenance, you can now assign items to an item group, which, if associated with an Item Menu Group, will automatically be placed on the associated menu. The top row of buttons on the menu is automatically generated by the system to reflect the top 8 best-selling items within the last 24-hour period. This gives cashier quick and easy access to the fastest moving weighted items. The system automatically alphabetizes the remaining items on the menu. When new items are added to the weighted items menu, the system automatically integrates them into the alphabetized order with no human intervention required.
Basic Image Portfolio
CATAPULT® includes a standard portfolio of basic images available to the user. Each back-office and workstation terminal will have a repository of approximately 100 produce images. ECRS® is providing these images to help you get started using the new feature of CATAPULT Web Office that allows you to store an image on the item record. This new feature flows over to CATAPULT’s new Auto Generated Item Menu system. When you attach an image to items and/or item groups, those images appear on the menu buttons at POS on the auto-generated menu. These images are only a starting point, and retailers are free to use any images they want to. These images are 100×100 pixels, which is the preferred resolution currently, although future versions of CATAPULT will allow you to store multiple larger images on inventory item records.
