Utilizing house accounts with Aloha Takeout
House accounts is a feature of the NCR Aloha Suite that tracks the activity of customers you allow to bill to an account. As a customer places and receives an order, you can tender the order to that customer account. The system stores each new transaction and updates account balances throughout a billing cycle. Most activity is entered through the FOH when you tender an order to a house account. Functions on the BOH allow you to post adjustments to a house account. Adjustments include payments, credits, or debit transactions.
Select Reports > Aloha Point-of-Sale > House Accounts and the House Account function tab appears, where you can run periodic reports for house accounts. Typically, you will print and send these reports (statements) to the house account contact for reimbursement at the end of a billing cycle. Once you have sent a statement, click Balance to reset each account for the next billing cycle. The balance process updates the 'previous balance' with the 'ending balance,' and removes transaction detail so only new transactions appear on the new billing cycle house account report.
