# Getting Started

We can start the Rover POS process by selecting POS on the leftmost menu. It will open up a new screen that will allow you to select the customer you wish to sell to. You can search for the desired customer using either their Name or ID, you can also scan/enter in an invoice # or order #.

*If using the ROVER database, the customers that are listed here are directly linked to CUST.E in Rover. Once a new customer is added to that Rover module, you can quickly find them listed in Rover POS.

# Customer Lookup

To lookup a customer, enter in 3 or more letters in the customer’s name and the search results tab will highlight and display the number of accounts that match your lookup.

# Create Your Order

After we have selected our customer, a new screen will open showing a few different options.

# Parts

*Parts Tab is only available if you have the ROVER parts module.

Search for part numbers and names using multiple filters. Use this to create and prepare orders. It will initially open on the code price and will list all parts in alphabetical order. By selecting the different filters, we can narrow down the search to specific parts. Alternatively, we can also search for our desired part by using either the description of the part or the part number. Clicking “RESET SEARCH” will clear all filters and keywords, returning us to the alphabetical code price list. It will display the price along with the quantity you want to add to your cart. Click “Add to Cart” and we can then click “Create Order” to continue with this sales order.

*If you find that the quantity or price is incorrect, you will be able to change either of those by clicking on the part name on the right after adding it to your cart.



# 1) Orders

Displays all open orders along with their ID’s, Reps, Type, Order Date, Purchase Order #, and buttons to allow you to download or email the receipt. Finalizing an order that has a payment required will automatically load the payment screen with the newly created Invoice.

Order Information

Pressing the “Use New Address” button will create a new address in CUST.E once the new address has been saved.

The Additional Information section allows for a parts order number, type of shipping, and ship date. The type of shipping is determined by MRK.CONTROL so more can be added. There is also the option of a signature that can be added to the receipt.
