What is Department and Sales Area in POS

When implemented in a multi-outlet environment a business can manage sales by Outlets, Departments, and Sales Area.

  • Outlets: Outlets are considered one separate store. 
  • Departments: A large store can track their sales by departments. Each department can keep a separate price list for same items.
  • Sales Area: Every department can have one or more sales area. They are useful when food served in different location has different price. For example, food served in the food court may have less price than a banquet.
