Thermal Paper Billing Rolls Play a Key Part in Automation of POS Transactionsby Pritam Singh Business
One of the things that retail businesses have to maintain in their stock on a regular basis is thermal paper billing rolls for generating instant bills for their customers. Today, this form of billing is common among retailers of all sizes – small corner shops, medium-sized retail stores and large format retail super stores. The reason is that the new GST regime requires a whole lot more transparency from businesses especially in the way they present their accounts. Without transparent accounting there can’t be proper taxation and without transparent billing, there can’t be proper accounting. Hence, billing, accounting and taxation are very closely related and to integrate all of these you need automation of the entire process of billing and accounting.
The process of accounts automation begins with POS billing
Today, it’s a lot easier to integrate all the billing, accounting and taxation functions even on an enterprise scale because of the availability of highly advanced software created precisely for that. It needs to be remembered that the entire process begins with billing and that is where the much-needed transparency becomes evident. The thermal paper billing rolls are actually needed for the thermal paper printers that have automated the billing process. All that a cash counter clerk has to do is scan the barcode on a product with a laser scanner in less than a second to get all the product details including the price of the product onto the cash register.
The billing automation process increases efficiency at the POS
Once the product details are recorded in the automated cash register computer, it becomes accessible to selected users in the accounts department to make their respective entries in the books of accounts that they update routinely. On the other hand, the customers also receive a copy of the receipt that is instantly printed on the thermal paper billing roll which runs on the thermal paper printer. At the cash counter, the clerk would have hardly taken 30 seconds to scan 30 items with a laser scanner and would have generated a perfectly documented receipt for all 30 items in barely a minute or so. Add another minute or a little more for processing the payment, and the cash counter clerk would have handled a customer in just two minutes. Needless to say that this helps boost business in a major way.
