    SUMMER GREETINGS FROM YOUR TEAM AT COPOS!


    NEW LABEL SIZE

    CoPOS is excited to announce a NEW repack label: LPQ08!

    We are now offering a 3”x3” single-perforated label. The LPQ08 is similar to the 4”x3” Dual-Perf Repack Label, LPQ07, but without the lower perforation. This is a great option if the LPQ02 (2.4”x3”) isn’t big enough but the LPQ07 is too big. The LPQ08 utilizes the same larger space for ingredients as the LPQ07, as compared to the smaller space for listing ingredients provided by the LPQ02.

    We are offering to sell a single roll at a one-time discounted price for co-ops that might like to give a try, but aren’t sure they want to commit to an entire case.

    We hope this becomes a better fit for people who are looking for just the right size! Give us a call if you’d like more information.


    UNFI INTEGRATED ELECTRONIC INVOICING

    CoPOS is excited to introduce integrated electronic invoicing direct from UNFI into CoPOS through the CoPOS Cloud. No more need to use a flash drive or any other computer. The invoices show up directly in options 8.7 Process Electronic Invoices and 8.1 Enter Item Prices.

    This feature has been previously available from select UNFI distribution centers but is now available on any UNFI account that uses the CoPOS POS system. We have been testing the integrated electronic invoicing in a few locations across the country for the past four (4) months, and UNFI has been able to resolve the issues that we have noticed. That said, this interface is still in beta and it is recommended that you continue to check both your integrated electronic invoice and your paper invoice for any discrepancies during the first month of utilization.

    This information is also available on the CoPOS website under Resources – Release Notes.


    ADDITION OF A DELIVERY CHARGE

    CoPOS now supports a delivery charge. A delivery charge can be added when selling a special order or an online order at the register.

    Additional information regarding this new feature can be found on the CoPOS website under Resources – Release Notes.

    CoPOS has completed beta testing of our direct-to-SPINS automatic upload capabilities, and this timesaving feature is ready for you to implement today! Sharing POS data with SPINS has never been easier. This new feature automatically sends your sales data direcly to SPINS every week – no hands-on user intervention required!
