How to set-up Kenya

August 19, 2021

Since Berlin POS 3.30.0 & EPSI 3.25.6 clients have the possibility of using the Tracom fiscal provider integration (Kenya).

Step-by-step guide

  1. Install necessary driver + application provided by the fiscal provider.

  2. Upon installation there should be a green tray icon in the bottom right

  3. When you click it, it opens a User interface where it is possible to do minor configurations and also specify the COM port of the fiscal device in case your tray icon is red and the COM port is incorrect.

  4. If you need to find out what COM port your device is using then just open up device manager (Start -> right click Computer -> manage).

  5. Now it is needed to create the folders where the fiscal device will be reading from and writing to. These are also the folders that are needed to be configured for EPSI. For example create a folder called dpool in C:\ catalog.
    Inside dpool catalog you have to create three folders In, Out and Err.


  6. Once everything software wise is setup and functioning as intended it is time to configure the provider for EPSI via a config file. Create a file named in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\ERPLY\Service.

  7. Note that all of the folder paths have to have double slashes as separators otherwise the path is not interpreted correctly. Example configuration can be found below

  8. Now if all of the necessary EPSI configurations are done then all there is left to do is select the correct provider in POS EPSI settings. Go into settings -> External Device Integrations

  9. Once in External Device Integrations scroll down until you see Fiscal Settings. There from the provider list select tracom and click save. Then close all the settings windows and everything is ready.

  10. If everything is configured correctly then upon doing a sale the fiscal device should print out the fiscal receipt. When pressing X-report in POS main view then the fiscal device will print out the X-report.
    When the user ends the day and confirms all tenders then the fiscal device will print out the necessary Z-report describing all the transactions that took place during the day.
