Cloud POS with Reckon Hosted

  • Updated 1 week ago
Is there an article explaining how Cloud POS integrates with Reckon Hosted? I have linked the POS with Hosted and all stock items are available at the register. At the end of day I run the Z-Report, but I do not see the sales in Hosted (may be looking in the wrong spot?). Other questions I have relate to inventory - POS allows edits of pricing, barcodes etc, as does Hosted, how do these changes get propagated? Will one system overwrite the other? 

Thanks for any direction you are able to provide.

Hi Lee,

Thank you for your post.

Please view the help article from here: https://help.reckon.com/pos/integrations/accounting/reckon-accounts-hosted

You will have to post the End of Day transactions manually by going to Management System > REPORTS > Z Reports Archive > click on POST.

However, currently Hosted integration is down due to an urgent upgrade that Reckon Cloud POS requires to integrate with the new Hosted 2018 edition. We aim to have the new update released in next few days and then Reckon Accounts Hosted integration will resume.

You should update the price of an Inventory only in Hosted, not in Reckon Cloud POS. You can make other changes in POS (Barcode, colour, code etc.) as when you post end of day transactions/sync, the cost and price fields will be updated to what your Hosted company file has.

Hopefully that explains. Please let me know if you need any more information.

Thanks

Ifti

Thanks for the reply. This clarifies a lot.

I see on the Preferences / Accounting Software screen there is a settings cog with the option to sync - is it safe to press this while the register is open? I take it that this will sync the inventory?

Thanks

That's right but it won't work until we push the latest changes.

You can do it while Cash Register is open. But to see the new changes in your Cash Register, within your Cash Register, click on Settings button and click on "Sync" from there to get the latest data from your Management System.

Unfortunately I don't have an ETA as yet, but the work is going on full swing. We should have update early next week.

Apologies for any inconveniences caused by this.
