GEM-Fuel is a module to quickly sell gas on-the-go.

Requirements:

Main advantages:

  • Quickly manage your fuel sales from the Point of Sale without having to quit or stop what you were doing (e.g.: buiding an estimate or work order, etc...)

From the main menu, go to [Configuration] > [General information]:

  • On the first tab called "Options", check option:  103 - Quick gas sales,

To speed up your gas sale process, GEM-CAR will use the "Walk-in customer", hence the importance to set it properly.

Make sure you have a walk-in customer in your customers list or create one in the Customer Management window. The walk-in customer is generally used to invoice counter sales, allowing you to change the customer name on-the-fly.

  • In the "Walk-in customer code" field, type your walk-in customer code (e.g.: "-1", by default)
