How to integrate vouchers with BEPOZ

TalkBox vouchers can be integrated so that a TalkBox voucher can be backed by a BePoz voucher.  This means vouchers created and issued from TalkBox can be scanned at a BePoz terminal and have all the features of BePoz vouchers. To do this a voucher is created in each system and the TalkBox voucher is given the id of the BePoz voucher, this connects the vouchers from the two systems.  These composite vouchers:

  • Can be issued by TalkBox.
  • Can be scanned and redeemed at a BePoz terminal.
  • Support native BePoz voucher functionality.

To set this up you need to configure two vouchers, one in each system. This article shows how to complete this configuration for existing TalkBox and BePoz users in 4 steps.

Note: that this is only available in BePoz version 4.6 and above.

Step 1: Configure Bepoz backend

Impact Data Features
To access and configure ImpactData Features, the following Operator Privileges will need to be enabled in the Bepoz backend:

  • Operator Maintenance ‘General’ Tab
    • System Setup: “Maintain Venue, Stores & Tills” Flag
    • SystemSetup: ” Access Venue Stores & Tills” Flag
  • Operator Maintenance ‘Marketing & Promotions’ Tab
    • Promotions: “Maintain Voucher Setup” Flags

Till Extension
To create the Impact Data Till Extension, log into BePoz BackOffice and complete the following steps:

  • Navigation: System Setup component in the sidebar> Venue, Stores & Tills to open the Venue Stores and Tills List tab
  • Highlight the desired Till and click on the Add New Device button at the top of the tab; when prompted select ‘Blank Device’ and a New Device and Interfaces Maintenance window will open.
