    Software to open cash register box(cash drawer)


    My uncle just open a small shop and he need software/program that can open cash register box (cash drawer) "automaticly" without lock/unlock the cash register box (cash drawer) manually.The program/software will be install to the computer connected to cash register box.

    Anyone know about that sofware/program?

    What kind of POS system is he using? Have you talked to the vendor for such a solution? Most POS systems will have a way to login or validate an employee. So a customer can't just walk up and press a button and grab the cash and run out the door. This would be the "lock", as they have to sign into the system to open or complete a transacation to open the drawer. These systems normally also have an manual lock that disables the register all together, overrides the login or etc.
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    phish~ is right, these systems are pretty much hardware vendor specific. As in you don't go out and buy the software separately. Ones I have seen have had three basic methods:

    1. A key to identify the user and activate the register.
    2. A token, card or whatever that you insert.
    3. A key sequence that you type in.
