Have Barcode reader, will scan ...

Post by Bagpuss » Tue 23 Oct, 2012 10:58 pm

I bought a Barcode reader on Amazon and I've just plugged it in, Estlite recognized it straight away, I'm going to have fun with this : )

I've just had a look at the SMS messaging you can setup, I can see that you pay for credit upfront but how does it work exactly ? What mobile number does it use or is it a dedicated text number purely for sending text ( and not for receiving ). Can you fill me in please ? I can see this might be quite handy .
Thanks in advance,
Adam

What barcode reader did you get, Adam?

Now, if you wish, you will be able to price an entire job without ever having to touch the keyboard. :)

An SMS gateway is used to provide EstLite’s texting service. The texts sent do not include the sender’s phone number, instead the recipient sees the message as coming from the generic “TheFramers”. If you would like to try this feature, you should be aware that EstLite automatically opens an account for all users with a few free texts to play with.

Hi John,
I got this Barcode reader off Amazon, pretty straight forward, I just plugged it in and was working straight away.

I will hold fire on the Texting at the moment, i don't want to get ahead of myself... I used the Cash register for the first time today, I scanned the customers Invoice and flagged it as Collected and paid for, it's great fun :clap:

I'll keep you posted on my progress.
cheers,
Adam
