A scheduled session is not necessary for a Simphony install if EMC credentials are provided for read-only access. Once a user is created, we will need the following information to complete:

  • User Name
  • Company
  • Password

Required for agent configuration, can be provided by Merchant/Reseller or gathered by Omnivore Tech with EMC read-only access.

  • POS API Employee Record # with Operator Records in every RVC needed for the configuration. This employee should have an employee class of server/bartender or above
  • The RVC # and RVC ID for each RVC needed for the configuration. You will find this under RVC Configurations at the Property Level in EMC
  • The IP address of the Transaction Services workstation. Make sure this workstation has all the RVC's listed for the configuration, and it shows the same list in the same order on the localhost workstation.
  • Cash Tender #
  • Send/SaveCheck/ServiceTotal Tender #
  • A prep time if "future orders" will be used
  • An Auto Service Charge # if one will be used

  • If the Empty Item needs to be hidden on the check or not
