Mission Statement: To develop a standard interface for an intelligent cash drawer that will allow Conexxus retail members to easily and quickly implement Intelligent Cash Drawer functionality into their POS environments. An intelligent cash drawer also offers retailers the full advantage of automated cash counting at the point of sale, the ability to streamline cash handling processes, and the ability to control and reduce their cash losses.
This Working Group is under the Device Integration Committee. There is considerable growing interest in an intelligent cash drawer in North America from the convenience store and petroleum sectors. Like many other POS peripherals, for an intelligent cash drawer to be utilized, integration into existing POS systems is required. A standard interface will also allow for greater interoperability between the intelligent cash drawer and the POS. This will facilitate the introduction of new functionality surrounding the cash drawer and reduce industry maintenance costs.
The Working Group Chair is Fred Beuve, APG Cash Drawer.
