Settings Grid

The Settings Grid determines the default value when Supply Only is True e.g. The Onsite Hauler (or transport company) is not employed by the profit centre for this transaction hence will record this value as the Supply Only Default Destination Description in the Supply Only Destination field and print this value on the dispatch docket.

  • PC Code - Is determined and defaulted from Profit Centre Setup.
  • Supply Only Default - Is User Defined printing this value as the Default Value in the Destination Field of the Dispatch Docket.     
  • Add - Is a reference to Invoice Export  or ERP Invoice production. It's purpose is for Supply Only transaction types, adding the Supply Only Description (excluding the Supply Only default value of 'N/A' 'Supply' or 'Drive Safe' ) to the applicable invoice line detail. 
  • When False will not export the Supply Only Description in the 'Destination/Description' field within the invoice line detail.
  • When True exports Supply Only transaction descriptions (excluding the Supply Only default value of 'N/A' 'Supply' or 'Drive Safe' ) into the 'Destination/Description' field within the invoice line detail.

POS Mode

POS (Point of Sale) Mode offers the main control options for the POS Terminal which is primarily designed for unmanned operations meaning vehicle driver self entry and exit. 
12. POS Mode
  • Start in POS Mode - Set only with Administration privileges delivering automated (POS) User login.
  • When True; on machine Start or Restart WZWB POS Mode is automatically enabled, without User intervention.
  • Vehicle drivers need only record their Vehicle ID (Registration) via Touch Screen or 'other' enabled device and proceed Onsite.
  • When True; on running WZWB from your Desktop the application will launch the POS Terminal Mode by default.
  • Offers opportunity for anyone to simply turn off and on again your physical computer running the POS Terminal (correcting 'machine' error, should it occur).

  • Require Pass To Close POS - Adds a layer of security to the POS Terminal machine in it entirety.  
  • With an automated Login and Password comes security risks hence its recommended that when Start in POS Mode is set to True, Require Pass to Close POS is also True.

  • When Require Pass is False, ESC is the quick key to close the POS Terminal, offering successful

    manned operation

    settings and control.

  • The POS Close button can be viewed and therefore accessed by any vehicle driver entering and exiting the profit centre; on True requires password returning users to

    manned operations


  • POS Predictive Text

    - Makes it easier for vehicle drivers to record their ID (or vehicle registration) because predictive text looks up the entire database and reports the closest match for each character recorded.
  • When false offers a security advantage in ensuring that the ID is recorded accurately, exists in the database and that it doesn't belong to any other vehicle before successfully proceeding onsite.   
  • Hauler Customer(s) -  Opens the Hauler Maintenance; Hauler Customers tab for the purpose of limiting profit centre Customer selection based on user Hauler selection.
