Fresh Food / Bulk Item Processing with ScaleAware

This patent-pending feature expedites the processing of weighted items at the point of sale by eliminating keystrokes. When this option is turned on, if the POS detects a settled weight on the scale, it automatically displays the produce/bulk menu for the cashier, rather than forcing them manually press buttons each time a weighted item must be rung in.

Some have started to install sit-down brewpubs in their stores, where patrons can have a glass of craft beer or wine during their shopping experience. Catapult can be configured to work flawlessly with these additional retail touchpoints.

Deli / Food Services

Catapult features scale integration, which means that through Catapult you can fully integrate Catapult into your scanner-scales, deli, and prepared foods departments.

An associate (or customer in unattended mode) can place fresh foods on a scale, weigh them, and print a barcode label, enabling stores to sell items by unit weight for each ring up.

Pharmacy

Streamlined data transfer between the point-of-sale and pharmacy system enables faster, more convenient customer checkouts, simpler data/reporting management, elimination of multiple signature capture devices, and enhanced functionality.
