One of my favorite movies is Reservoir Dogs. In one scene, the character Mr. Pink (played by Steve Buscemi) spends almost three minutes lamenting about why he doesn't tip. His reasoning includes only tipping the server if they do something special, and not tipping his current waitress because she's only filled his coffee cup three times, instead of six.
Obviously, a lot has changed since then, and servers now rely on their tips more than ever (the scene definitely hasn't aged well). For that reason, it's important that managers are able to easily track the tips their servers receive.
Read the Release Notes below to find out how Clarifi Cash can help with tracking tips, among many other things.
Also, don't be a Mr. Pink.
Cash Drawers Released if Associated Shift is Changed
To ensure that Cash Drawers are properly linked to their final shift totals, any cash drawer that has been associated to a shift that has been modified or removed by the cash reconciliation process will be available for reassignment.
This is done by matching Employee Ref # &/or Register # from the point of sale system.
Include Tip Totals in Cash Reconciliation
Moving forward, tip totals can be configured to display in Cash Reconciliation by Corporate Administrators, so that they are included in the calculation for expected cash owed/due for cashiers/servers that receive tips.
This will make it easier for store managers to determine how much cash needs to be paid to their servers.
Choose Funds for Safe Count Frequency
To help ensure that stores are counting all the cash they have in the correct way, Corporate Administrators will now be able to choose the funds available in a Safe Count while they are configuring it and whether the count entry per fund is by single-value or by denomination.
View Sales in Cash Reconciliation & Daily Reconciliation
To help Store Managers track performance, they will now be able to view Gross Sales by Category in the Cash Reconciliation & Daily Reconciliation details
Receipt Number Field Changed to Verification Number
While submitting a pending deposit, the field titled “Receipt Number” has been changed to read “Verification Number”.
This change has also extended out to the Complete tab of the Deposits screen as well, where the column that once read Receipt/Bag #, will now read Verification/Bag #.
Manual Shift Close Now Forces Sync
Moving forward, anytime that a shift is manually closed in Clarifi Cash, a sync will automatically be run to ensure that the most up to date information from the Point of Sale is available.
