Setting Up A Retail Store With POS

Dynamics AX 2012 now has a retail module that includes store management, and also the ability to set up Retail Point of Sales (POS) terminals to take orders, manage store inventory and also track customers. It may seem a little bit daunting to set up, but it’s really not that hard.

In this blueprint we will go through all of the steps that are required for you to set up your first retail store and then configure the POS register so that you can take orders through the touch screens.

The topics that are described within this series are:

  • Creating A POS Shortcut
  • Assigning Shortcut Keys to POS Buttons

The retail module is pretty darn cool, and being able to configure and deploy a Point Of Sales system that is completely integrated with your base system, without having to purchase any more software is a great benefit.  You could easily deploy registers out to PC’s and tablets without much additional work.

There is still a lot more that you can do though that we did not touch on yet within this blueprint.  After you have mastered the basics that we introduced here you may want to try:

  • Creating custom layouts for different screen form factors
  • Change the background image for the POS welcome screens
  • Create variations of the POS for different users

Setting up a store has never been so easy.
