The Point of Sale is your lunchroom professional's software for identifying students in the lunch line, charging the correct meal items, and recording the purchases to jmc Office for reporting and accounting needs.
We know you need to quickly move students through the lunch line so the Point of Sale was designed with speed in mind. From the single-page all-in-one interface to keyboard shortcuts for simple meal charging, it is all here within a few taps!
To get started charging breakfasts and lunches to students and staff log in to jmc Point of Sale, where you'll be presented with two large buttons: "Begin Breakfast" and "Begin Lunch". Let's look at how to locate a student or adult to charge and how to select their purchased meal items to record them in jmc Office.
Step One: Click the "Begin Breakfast" or "Begin Lunch" button depending on the time of day to start processing students and adults through the lunch line.
Step Two: Enter the student or adult's lunch ID in the "Find" field to select the correct account to charge.
