Optional Utilities
Point Of Sales System (POS) Interface: Marcole's optional POS sales processing utility applies sales to the registry database. Some modifications of the POS system will be required to capture gift registry sales data and place it in a file format, as specified by Marcole. Retailers may need to contact their POS vendor about modifying their POS system prior to purchasing this option.

Note: In the event that data cannot be extracted, Gift RegistryWorks Registry Manager contains a simple manual entry screen for updating sales.

Item Load Option: Marcole's optional Item Load Utility enables product descriptions and prices to reside on the gift registry system eliminating duplicate data entry. Implementation requires item data to be placed in a file format provided by Marcole and accessible by Gift RegistryWorks. Retailers may need to contact their system vendors about extracting the item data from their existing system to initially load the item file. On-going file extracts for new or changed item data should also be considered. This Option should not be purchased prior to confirming that the required data can be provided in the specified format.

Note: In the event existing inventory systems cannot be modified, Gift RegistryWorks - Item Maintenance can be used to manually enter and update items.
