ICRTouch and Norcon Computers have worked together to provide a seamless link between News Slave for Windows and ICRTouch TouchPoint. Now you can use TouchPoint as a weekly billing engine for your News Slave customers with the new add-on module. The newly developed link allows customer details to be accessed from the till, showing their last week's costs, the current week's costs and the last billed amount along with the current balance on the account.

Pay into a customer account directly from till, and then print a report of previous payments and transactions direct to the tills report printer. You can also book a customer's holiday into the system, giving a start and end date and whether the newspapers are to be held until they return or simply not required.

The News Slave software can be purchased directly from Norcon Computers Ltd, or through your ICRTouch dealer.
