Chapter 1 - Overview

Shown below is the Gilbarco G-Site Cash Register Interface

 

To see the other interfaces, click Gilbarco Passport, Ruby, Wayne Nucleus or ComData

You can also program the Ruby Keys, to see the interface, click Ruby Keys.

The Cash Register Interface gives you the ability to connect to your Cash Register and download your Departments, PLU(s), UPC-Codes, Gas Prices and your daily Shifts. You can also program and upload new or existing Products back to the Cash Register.

On some Cash Registers, you can also upload your Gas Prices.

If this is the first time you run the Cash Register Interface, then you should click the Setup button.

A typical usage would be to do the following steps:

!!! WARNING !!!  You should be downloading the shifts using the Automation, but we recommend that you download the 1st shift manually to make sure everything is properly configured.

Products Download – Download your Departments, PLUs and UPC-Codes from the cash register.

Sales Download - Download your shift or day from the cash register.

Verify – Verify what was last downloaded when you last clicked on “Sales Download”.

Update Sales – Post the downloaded data into the software.

"Upload Products to Cash Register" is used to upload a bunch of products that were modified, all products, all PLUs, all UPC-Codes, All Departments or All Products in selected Departments.  It also lets you upload your Price Groups on some registers that do support it.

"Product Wizard" is used to make changes to a group of products by price group, name, product code, department, UPC-Code, Selling, Buying, Category or Sub-Category.

"Department Setup" is used to program your departments and send them to the register.

"Change Price Groups" is used to create/modify price groups.  Once you create the price group, you can assign various products that price group and change the price for the whole group in one shot.

"View Products" shows a spreadsheet with all your Departments, PLUs and UPC-Codes.  Note that all IDs under 9500 are departments, all IDs 9501 to 9999 are PLUs 1 to 499, all IDs  10000 to 95000000000000 and all IDs 95000000000500 to 95000000009499 are PLUs 500 to 9499.

"Validate Products" will make sure your products are setup to be compatible with your cash register.

On the Ruby

"Mix Match" lets you configure the Mix & Match.  This is where you can setup multiple items with different UPC-Codes to be in the same promotion such as 1 for $0.59 and 2 for $1.00 without hitting any special keys.

"Ruby Keys" lets you program all your Ruby Keys and have your keys map to departments, PLUs, MOP, menu, etc.

"Create/Modify Products" will let you create new products or modify existing products.  You can change the selling or buying prices as well as many other settings for the selected product.

"Last Batch" is the last batch number (Shift or Day number) that was processed.

On the G-Site

"Batch to download" lets you select the next batch to download.  The 1st time, you need to click "Show Available Batches" to see what batch you can download.  This also lets you enter an older batch to download in case you missed it.  Note that the G-Site typically holds up-to 9 shifts.

On the Ruby

"Set Number" lets you select the Set Number to download.  2 is the latest shift or day, 3 is the previous shift or day, 4 is 2 shifts or days back, etc.  Some Ruby registers are configured as a 12-shift and others are configured to be 3-shifts.  If yours is configure to be 12-shifts, you can download Set Number 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B and C.  Note that Set Number 1 is the currently opened shift or day and cannot be downloaded.

On the Nucleus

"Skip Batches" allows removing many batches from processing.  This is useful if you want to skip a date range and start at a later date.

On the Ruby, Nucleus and Passport

"Show Available Batches" shows the shifts you already downloaded and you can pick any of them to reprocess.

"R" will let you Restore one of the latest 3 batches processed for re-processing.  This is useful if you are still playing around with the configuration and you wanted to reprocess the last shift/day you downloaded.


Chapter 2 - Setup

The "Cash Register Interface Setup" gives you the ability to customize the interface to your cash register to run properly with your Station and your existing Department setup.

Shown below is the Gilbarco G-Site Cash Register Interface Setup

To see the other interfaces, click one of the following:  Gilbarco Passport, Ruby, Wayne Nucleus or ComData

Station Configuration

This is the group where you select the type of station or credit card network that you use.  You can also select the Version and Product Code or simply click "Diagnostics"  after "Testing the Connection" and the software will automatically figure out the credit card network, the version and the product code to use.

Under "Download by", you can select to download by Shift or by Day. We recommend that you download by Shift.

Under "Email Changes of:"  please check what you would like e-mailed or text messaged, if "Fuel Price" only is checked then only changes in fuel prices will be sent.  If only "Shift & Other" is checked then only shift information such as if the shift or day was short or over or balanced, product prices were uploaded to the cash register.  It will also let you know if the credit card fees and gas invoices were imported from the AGKSoft Home Office Software etc.  If both checkboxes are checked then all information will be e-mailed or sent via text message.  Please see Business Info on how to configure this.

Cash Register Connection

The most common selection is "G-Ftp" which means you are using the Gilbarco Veeder-Root G-Site Ftp Server known as G-Ftp.  This connection is a direct serial connection, so you need to select the COM Port (Serial Port) to use.  You need to also select the "Baud Rate", which must match the setting on the G-Site itself.   For more info., see the G-Ftp Guide instructions (Volume G).

The other option is "Native Ftp" which means you are using the Windows Dial-up Networking to directly connect to the G-Site. For more info., see the Native Ftp Guide instructions  (Volume F).

"My Cash Register is connected to a Tank Monitor" should be checked when the Tank Monitor is connected to your Cash Register and configured.  Note that this is a special connection that must be made by your Gilbarco Authorized Service Contractor.  It may require a special kit to interface the register to the Tank Monitor.

Gateway Options

These are the options where you can configure how we interface to your Cash Register to perform all communications.

On the G-Site

When G-Ftp is selected, these options are as follows:

"Folder" is typically "C:\Gftp"

"Program" is typically "Gftps.exe"

"Host or IP" is typically "127.0.0.1"

"Username" is typically "RPCI".  Make sure this is set the same on the G-Site itself.

"Password" is typically "123456".  This must be the same as the Station ID on the G-Site itself.

When Native Ftp is selected, these options are as follows:

"Folder" is typically "C:\Gftp"

"Dialup Name" is typically "G-Site", this must be configured according to the Native Ftp Guide instructions.

"Host or IP" is typically "10.1.1.3" or "10.2.1.1".  Fore more info. on how to figure that out, see the Native Ftp Guide instructions.

"Username" is typically "RPCI".  Make sure this is set the same on the G-Site itself.

"Password" is typically "123456".  This must be the same as the Station ID on the G-Site itself.

On the Ruby

When GemCom is selected, The folder is set to c:\gemcom, Program is set to GEMCOM.EXE

When RubyLink is selected, The folder is set to c:\gemcom, Program is set to GEMCOM32.EXE

When Sapphire is selected, The folder is set to c:\gemcom\bin, Program is set to GEMCOM32.EXE

On the G-Site or Ruby

Com Port should be set to your PC's serial port you are currently using to connect your PC to your register.

Batch Options

The “Backup To” should always be checked to backup all the downloaded shifts.  The shift we download can automatically get backed-up to any folder that you specify.  This should always be set to: C:\XXX\TALK\Backup\* (Where XXX is GFTP on the G-Site, GEMCOM or the Ruby, NLINK on the Wayne Nucleus, PASSPORT on the Gilbarco Passport and COMDATA on the ComData)

Department Mappings:

This is the group where you set up most of your special Department Numbers.

Lottery Tickets is the Dept. key that you press on your Cash Register when someone buys Lottery Scratch Tickets. 

Note the check box to the right of the Lottery. If this is checked, we would take the amounts and put them in to the Short/Over form, which is the form you would be using to close the shift.  If you want to track your scratch tickets using our Lottery Scratch Tickets form, you should not have this box checked.  If you don't have this box checked, then you must go to the Lottery Scratch Tickets form, enter and save your data.

Lottery Machine is the Dept. key that you press on your Cash Register when someone buys a Lottery Machine ticket.

Work Order Parts is the Dept. key that you hit on your Cash Register when someone is paying for parts that you used for the Garage. The reason we separate Parts and Labor is mainly to figure out the Tax.

Note the check box to the right of the Parts and Labor. If this is checked, we would take the amounts and put them in the Short/Over form, which is the form you would be using to close the shift.  If you want to use our Work Order form to give your clients professional work order printed receipts, then make sure the box is not checked.

Labor is the Dept. key that you hit on your Cash Register when someone is paying for Garage Labor. The reason we separate Parts and Labor is mainly to figure out the Tax.

Parts Cost Paid should be set to the Department you use on your Cash Register to ring-up what you are paying for parts if you ever pay your Parts Vendors directly from the cash register.

ATM should be set to the Department you use on your Cash Register when putting money in the ATM machine.  This is typically done when the ATM machine you have in your store is low on cash.

Expenses Paid should be set to the Department you use on your Cash Register to ring-up expenses paid.

Vendors Paid should be set to the Department you use on your Cash Register to ring-up what you paid Vendors if you ever do pay them directly from the cash register.

Credit Cards should be set to the Department you use on your Cash Register to ring-up Credit Card (s) if you have a Credit Card device such as the VeriFone that is not connected to your Cash Register.  YOU SHOULD NOT USE THIS FOR REGULAR CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS THAT GO THROUGH YOUR CASH REGISTER.

On the Ruby, ComData, Nucleus & Passport

You will see a "Fuel Depts." group, these are the ranges of departments that are configured for Fuel.  We automatically fill this in, but in case you changed your register, you can change this to match your register.

Test Connection

This button should be used to make sure your connection is working.

Diagnostics

This button should be used right after "Test Connection" to validate your Station Configuration and software revision.


Chapter 3 - Expanded

Looking at the bottom right hand side of the Cash Register Interface window, you can see an arrow [>] button.  You can click this button to expand this window to see more details as shown below.

The expanded area includes rare functionality that you almost never touch without the help of an AGKSoft Support Engineer.

Cash Register

Delete All

This is a very dangerous operation to perform, so we highly recommend that you backup your Cash Register configuration before you perform this operation.. This button will delete every item from your Cash Register.

Remove Deleted

This is a very dangerous operation to perform, so we highly recommend that you backup your Cash Register configuration before you perform this operation. This button will delete every item having Deleted set to true.

Mark Deleted

If you have products in your Product List that you you never sold, this will automatically mark "Deleted" as "True".  You can then click on "Remove Deleted" to remove them from your register.

Gas Selling Prices

Select "Cash", "Credit" or "Both" if Cash & Credit are the same price.

Click "Download" to download the current Gas Prices from your register.  If the prices do not fall in the proper place, you will need to change the "Gas Map" numbers, see the next section for more info.

If one of the Grades showing you do not sell, open the Gas Load window and click the [>] next to the Grade you do not sell to hide it.

Once you have the Gas Mapped properly, you can simply enter your new Gas selling prices and click "Send to Register".

Gas Map

Some stations are not configured properly for some of the Grades. If you are having a problem with one of the Grades showing up as another, you can change the Mapping to accommodate your Cash Register.

If you are getting your Full Serve prices and Self Serve prices mixed up, try checking the “Switch Svc” checkbox.


Chapter 4 - Usage

The first time you use the “Cash Register Interface”, you should click on "Products Download" in order to download all your products from your Cash Register to your Back Office PC. After the download is finished, you will be asked if you want to update your Products Setup, you should select yes.

If you picked no when prompted to update your Products Setup, you can click "Update Products".  The software will read what you downloaded and update your Product Setup.

If you want to add a new product or change an existing product price, you can use one of the following:

1.      Create/Modify Products

2.      View Products

3.      Product Wizard

Gilbarco G-Site ONLY - If this is the first time you are about to download your shift, you may need to specify the Shift #. The Shift # is found on your Shift Report, NOT on your Pay Point Report. The shift # can be entered in the "Batch to download" edit field.

Click on the "Sales Download" button to download a shift. Note that the Last Batch edit field shows you the last Shift # that you downloaded, so if you do not enter a Shift # in the "Batch to download" edit field, we automatically download the next shift. So you only have to enter the "Batch to download" once, unless you want to skip a shift or go back to an older shift that you missed downloading.

After downloading the shift, click "Verify" to make sure you downloaded the proper shift.

After clicking "Verify", the "Update Sales" button gets enabled. Before you click on the "Update Sales" button, under "update options" check the boxes that apply to you.

The check boxes that should be checked for all stations are:

Gas Sale, Sales Room, Accounts, Discounts, Credit Cards, Paid Events

If you have a Car Wash, then make sure you check the "Car Wash" check box.

If Paid Events is not working for you, try the "Paid In" and "Paid Out" check boxes instead. Note that Paid Events is just a special way of getting Paid In and Paid Out with detailed events. We recommend using Paid Events in general.

You can now click on the "Update Sales" button, which tells the software to take the downloaded shift and automatically fill out all forms, such as Gas Sale, Salesroom, etc.

When Update Sales is finished, you should see the "Sales Log" with all the details.

You should also see the Short/Over form, which you should use to balance and Close your Shift.


Chapter 5 - Create/Modify Products

Shown below is an example of a product created using this window.

Under “Product Type”, you need to select the kind of product you want to create.  If you select “UPC-Code”, you can enter or scan the UPC Number and hit Enter.  If the product is not in your product setup the focus moves to the Product Name.

Type the Product Name and hit the Enter key.  Repeat this process until you have all the fields filled in.

Click Save when you finish.

You can click New to create another product.

When you finish creating all your products, click the “Send to Register” button.


Chapter 6 - View Products

You can view your Products List directly in the View Products window. This window displays your product's ID (Dept., UPC-Code or PLU), Product Description, Buying Price, Selling Price, State Tax, Product Code, Category, Sub-Category, as well as many other fields.  To hide or show these fields, you click the "Hide/Show" button. 

 

To view a report of all your products, click the "Report" button and you will see a window like the one shown below.

 

Notice in the Report shown above the highlighted lines are for invalid pricing.


Chapter 7 - Product Wizard

This window gives you the ability to change the Buying Price, Selling Price, Department, Price Group, Product Code, Min and Max Inventory for many products matching a Product Name, Price Group or Product Code.  You can change the selling price for the whole group with a single click.  

Example:  Let's say you want to change all the "Marlboro" that are currently selling for $3.79 to $3.89.

Select the following:

Under Select Product List by: select "Product Name", enter "MARL". 

Click the FIND button. 

Under "Limit Search to:" select "Selling Price" = and enter "3.79",

Click the FIND button. 

 You will now see a list of all products matching the criteria you specified. 

Under "Change Field", select "Selling"

Under "New Value" enter 3.89

Click "Change".

When you are satisfied, click "Save Changes" and then "Send to Register" to update the prices on your Cash Register.

If you are using a Gilbarco G-Site, you will see "Building Item Info", wait for the message to go away before you attempt to add any new products.

If you are using a Ruby VeriFone SuperSystem, you need to Log-off and Log back in to see the changes.


Chapter 8 –Automation

Automation can do all the work for you automatically. This is important because your Cash Register may only remember a limited number of shifts and days. If automation has been off and you don't do the Download for a while, you will not be able to get the shifts you missed.

You can start the Automation by clicking on the Daily menu and selecting "Cash Register Interface" and then "Auto" or by clicking on the "Auto" button from inside the Cash Register Interface window.

The Cash Register Interface - Automation window allows you to select a "Download Interval" such as 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hr, 2 hrs,  3 hrs, etc.

When performing the automation, you have the option for "Product Prices" and "Auto Restart".

If you check "Product Prices", we will download your new product prices from your Cash Register.  This option is not recommended, because you should really be changing the product prices from the software and then uploading them to the register.

If you check "Auto Restart", the software will close itself down and then re-open automatically after the shift have been processed.

You can click on "Start Automation" to start the automation.

You can cancel the Automation by clicking on the "Stop Automation" button.

You can click on the View Log button to see which shift was downloaded and when.

To see the shifts or days that have downloaded click on the "End of Shift/SHORT OVER" icon to start the "Short/Over" window.  Click "History", select OK to see all the dates/shifts that were processed.  Check your Safe Drop and Total Cash & Checks to make sure they match what you actually counted, fix any discrepancies, and click "Close Shift".

Repeat the above steps for every day/shift.

If you simply want to turn the computer on and allow the program to run automatically in automation mode, then you can create a shortcut as follows:

Right click on your desktop and select New and then Shortcut.

Under Command line, enter:

"c:\program files\station\station.exe" /auto /password=w

Click OK. The w in the path above represents the "Worker" password, which has the least amount of access in the software.  If you would rather the software automatically log-in with your password, replace the "w" with your password.

You now see the Gas Station Icon on your Desktop, click it to make sure it works.

After you test your new Shortcut, you can now Drag it to the Start menu, then to the Programs and then to Startup. Once the Shortcut is under the Startup group, it will automatically run at startup.

Please Note that the computer has to be turned on for automation to take place.  So, if the computer shuts down for what ever reason make sure automation is turned back on.

Configuring Automation to Export and Import:

The Back Office has the ability to export and import information to and from the AGKSoft Home Office Software or another type of FTP Server.  Please see the instructions below to configure the Automation window.

Exporting to the Home Office

  1. Click Start Automation.  You will see a box with the progress of the Export until complete and then it will say "Folder changed to PriceChange1" ( PriceChange1 is our example, the folder name created will be displayed)


Chapter 9 - Upload Products to Cash Register

This window gives you the option to upload "Modified Products ONLY", All Products, All PLUs, All UPC Codes, All Departments or All Products in the Selected Departments.  You also have the option to upload the Price Groups on the G-Site.

Click "Upload" to upload the products you selected.

Click "View Upload File" to show you the last file you uploaded to the cash register.

Click "View Upload Log File" to show you the result of the last file you uploaded to the cash register.


Chapter 10 – Products Download

When you first install the software, you need to click this button to download your department setup and all your PLU's and UPC-Codes from your cash register.

If you are planning on changing your product prices from this software and uploading the changes to your Cash Register, then you almost never have to click this again.

If you are changing prices directly from the cash register, then you need to click this button every time before you click Sales Download.


Chapter 11 – Sales Download

This is used to download your batch (shift or day) from the cash register. 

On the G-Site

The "Batch to Download" tells the software what shift or day to download.  If you are not sure, click "Show Available Batches"

On the Ruby

The "Set Number" tells the software what Set Number to download.  Set Number 2 is the last closed batch (shift or day), 3 is the batch before last, etc.  Depending on the Ruby Installer, some Ruby(s) are configured for 3 shifts and some for 12 shifts.  If your register is configured for 3 shifts, you can only download Set Number 2, 3 & 4.

When the download is finished, you can click Verify and make sure you downloaded the proper shift or day.

Now, click Update Sales to post the downloaded data into the software.  When the update is finished, you will see a Log File as shown below.
