Improvements to statement calculation and posting
Substantially improved and optimized the performance of the statement calculation and posting functionality. Also, refactored the process for replication counter updates. This resolves possible deadlock issues during statement calculation and posting. Now you can also automatically create and calculate statements for stores in an incremental way, and perform statements batch posting in parallel.
LS Central reduce the wait for the end-of-day calculation with automation
You can now set up the system to automatically create and calculate statements for stores. The statements will be calculated incrementally, with each calculation only including new transactions. This way the calculation time can be spread across the business day, minimizing the waiting time for the last calculation of the day.
Reduce statement posting time with parallel posting
You can now post the statements in the batch posting queue in parallel, with multiple sessions. Define in the setup how many statements you’d like to post in parallel, and LS Central will spin up the needed background sessions to work on the statement posting. Depending on your server’s specification, this can reduce the total statement posting time tremendously.
Use a dual-display through the LS Central AppShell
When you start LS Central through the LS Central AppShell, Windows version, you can now access support for a dual display. Enable the dual-display in the Terminal card, and it will start automatically, opening by default on the secondary screen.
A dual display can be useful to show information on the customer-facing screen. For example, you can show the POS journal with the total amount to pay or display advertising videos when the POS is not online.
Configure keyboard shortcuts for POS commands
You can also now trigger POS commands and button clicks via keyboard shortcuts. This kind of configuration can be useful to speed up sales for the POS user.
