Keystroke Sales Scripts

Sales Scripts provide the ability to set up special procedures for selling inventory items at the point of sale. An item set up with a Script is referred to as a "Scripted Item". These procedures, called "Scripts", may include any combination of special reminder messages, on-screen prompts to enter data, tag-along items (automatic or prompted), component items ("kitting"), and suggested alternate items when out of stock. Each inventory item may have its own unique Script(s).

Sales Scripts provide benefits to most any business using Keystroke.

Triggered by the sale of a primary (Scripted) item, Keystroke will run the Scripts you have specified for that Scripted Item. A Script can be as simple as a brief reminder to the clerk to ask the customer for a delivery address, or as complex as the addition of dozens of tag-along items. A Sales Script could be used, for example, to sell a computer. The system can prompt the clerk with choices for the size of case, hard drive, RAM, monitor, etc. Based on the selections, the system will automatically adjust the price of the computer (or each computer component can be priced separately on the invoice). The selected components can even be indented or printed in a condensed font on the invoice.

Scripts can be used to define Start of Sale and/or End of Sale procedures to run at the beginning or end of every sales transaction. Master Scripts can also be assigned to entire Departments, Categories, or Locations. A variety of powerful Script settings are available to control how and when a Script runs including: Out Of Stock Only, Returns Only, Replace Scripted Item, Run Once Per Transaction, Run Only On Specific Transaction Type, Default Customer Only, Run Script from Item, Select Comments from Item, Starting/Ending Date Range, Day Of Week, Day Of Month, Daily Time Window.
