52ViKING MPOS (Mobile POS) is a mobile client for Android devices that you can use with your 52ViKING solution to sell articles without having to use a physical till.

52ViKING MPOS is thus ideal for use on, for example, occasional sales stands outside your store, campaign stands inside your store, or simply to give sales staff the freedom to move around and still be able to use POS features and receive payment for articles.

To open 52ViKING MPOS on the Android device, tap the 52ViKING icon:

When you open 52ViKING MPOS, it'll typically ask you to scan or enter your staff ID. In some organizations, you're required to scan or enter your staff ID before each new customer transaction.

To scan the barcode on a staff ID card (and also barcodes on articles, once you've provided your staff ID):

  • If your device has a barcode scanner, you typically point the top of the device towards the barcode, and press a button on the device.

    Example: If you use the popular unitech PA768 device, it's the blue buttons on either side of the device that activate the barcode scanner.

  • If the device's camera has been enabled for 52ViKING MPOS, you can also use the device's camera to scan a barcode if you tap Scan articles in the lower part of the app.

Features described in the following are examples of functionality in a particular implementation of 52ViKING MPOS. Your actual implementation may contain more, fewer, and/or other features than described here.

Best practice tip: Place your 52ViKING MPOS device in its charger or dock when you don't use it. That way, you and your colleagues can always find the device the next time that you're going to use it.
