Cashiers sometimes have to guess prices, taxes and Departments
Detailed cash register receipts could improve customer confidence
More accurate, consistent prices could result in better customer service and improved margins
Complex tax laws and increasing product variety make the cashier's job harder. A well maintained price file could reduce demands on cashiers
Faster, easier cashier training means new and part time employees could be productive sooner

Consider making changes to your Department key layout
Use a Department key worksheet. List items that belong to each Department
All items in Departments must have the same tax status (either tax, or no-tax)
Once you've decided on the Department Key layout, make the changes
Here's a list of some common departments:
Once you are scanning, vendor product substitutions create added work for you
Work with suppliers to minimize substitutions where possible
With your permission, some vendors will put suggested retail prices on your products or shelves
To maintain scanning accuracy, vendors need to alert you to price changes before the items are on the shelf so your price book can be updated too.
Improve cashier efficiency and report quality
If your goal is to record every item individually...
Consider "locking out" sales on open Department Keys
Each item in your store will need to be sold with a UPC or PLU
Cashiers could write down the name of each item that needs attention (doesn't scan, price issue, etc.)
PLUs can be used to track items without bar codes
Coffee (small, medium, large, refill)
Cappuccino (small, medium, large, refill)
Fountain (small, medium, large, refill, cup of ice)
Phone Cards, Ice, Fast Food, Rolls, Bagels, Newspapers
Consider shelf label pricing vs. item labels (like grocery stores)
