This integration between Impos and your accounting platform is managed through a third party application, 5.5 Degrees, an information-sharing platform between different systems. Your sales and payment data from Impos will be pushed Automatically to the 5.5 Degrees cloud; from there 5.5 Degrees will push the information into your accounting program according to payment type, Impos category and time breakdown, with a record of each item that was sold in Impos.
The setup process requires an upgrade of your Impos system if you are below the Front Office version 6.18.639. This information can be found if you press the (i) button on your front office log in screen under Software Version. If you are on version 6.18.639 or higher your system will not require an upgrade.
You’ll also need to map your Impos categories to your accounting program, as well as match your payment types in both systems. The whole setup takes about 30 minutes.
The integration is available on levels of Impos support. Should you wish to integrate your Impos system to your accounting program, please feel free to get in contact with our Sales team to discuss integration fees.
The source of your data will be your POS system. It is where you and your staff are busy entering in key operational information such as your sales and payment information, breakdowns of payments types and much more. Your sales and payment information will automatically sync to 5.5 Degrees.
What is sent to 5.5 Degrees?
5.5 Degrees is a program that takes Impos data, stored in a particular format, and translates this into the format used by your accounting program. This translation is based on your mapping within 5.5 Degrees. The mapping is the relationship between your point of sale categories and the account codes in your accounting program, along with the relationship between payment types on the POS and the payment types in your accounting program. Once this mapping is finalised (this happens in your initial setup of 5.5 Degrees) and the data has been sent from Impos to 5.5 Degrees, the data is automatically synced and pushed to your accounting platform.
Memberships and Gift Cards
If your venue has the Impos Membership system enabled, and you accept gift cards or the recharging of cards with a dollar value, these ‘vouchers’ will appear in the liabilities section of your accounting program until they are redeemed.
If there is no data in your accounting platform, log into your 5.5 Degrees account (you’ll have received this information in the setup phase) and check that your mapping is setup correctly. If it is, feel free to email 5.5 Degrees support on firstname.lastname@example.org
