Welcome to 6.56
Welcome to Impos 6.56! We’ve excited to announce some great new features, as well as
improvements to our interface and bug fixes to make Impos better than ever.
Integration with Now Book It
Integrate seamlessly with Now Book It to handle Reservations and Gift Cards
Redeeming Gift Cards in Front Office
After placing your on Front Office, select the NowBookIt GC payment type (Highlighted Above). It
will then prompt you to enter your NowBookIt Gift Card ID as seen below.
Once this payment is confirmed, the order will be closed or you will be taken back to it to process
through any unpaid amounts.
Venue and Station Specific Surcharges
It is now possible to enable surcharges on individual terminals, or across the entire venue. Different
permission levels allow managers to control who has access to enable the venue or station
surcharge. Surcharges must be explicitly enabled to be applicable to the entire venue. Otherwise,
they are station-level only.
Navigating to the Surcharge section, select which surcharges you would like to be applicable to
venue wide settings and check the last checkbox.
Scheduled Menu Changes
Scheduled rules can now be configured to apply certain menus to specific stations (or all stations) at
different times. This allows a dinner menu to replace a lunch menu from 5pm-10pm, for example.
After selecting Rules under POS Functions, you can now set a new rule to switch between which
Menu List will be displayed. Under the Apply to section, select which Menu List you want to take
Below that select a start and end date for this Rule. And then select which Days and Time Periods
you want this change to take place.
Menu Item Gross Profit (GP%)
When configuring item prices, Back Office now displays an indicator of the GP the item will achieve
at the associated price and cost. Prices can be set to a target GP% by filling in the GP field directly.
The gross profit is determined by calculating the Price Level (1-5) vs the Cost (1-5).
Update to Payments made through Impos Membership
Payments using Impos Membership are now redeemable up to the remaining amount on the card
and processed as a multi-payment if there are not enough points or dollars remaining.
When processing through a Member Payment with not enough funds remaining, you will get the
following message, allowing you to either cancel that payment or continue with any remaining
