Digitized Loyalty Management for Stress-Free Sales and Reconciliation of Lottery
After the day’s numbers have all been counted, the data is usually faxed to corporate where someone has to determine if they were over or short, and then manually adjust the inventory in or out accordingly—all this for measly margins while selling a high internal theft item.
Through lottery management software, tickets are entered and assigned a game number and bin. They are then sold through the cash register as normal. However, at the end of the shift, the cashier reconciles them using a handheld device, POS, or the back-office. After that, they then enter the ending counts, as well as activated games and the details from the lottery machine. The starting count is perpetual and based off the last ending count.
Although counts can be changed, corporate is always notified of changes and can see what the expected starting count was originally. Optionally, over/short can be displayed, and once reconciliations are saved, the data is pushed to corporate where any necessary adjustments can automatically be applied to the inventory levels. Invoices can also be created automatically based on any activated book(s). All variances are shown and reports can be run against a myriad of options with the help of lottery sales & reconciliation software.
