For our NCR Counterpoint Retail Customers - Get a Jump on the New Year!
It's hard to believe that it is that time of the year again! And if this is also your fiscal year end, there are some things you will need to do to close out the old year and open the new year in Counterpoint Version 8.
To make it easier for you, we are posting instructions on how to do this. Scroll down below to download a copy of the instructions. Or watch this video!
Skurla’s co-founder and Alaskan legend, John Skurla (my dad), passed away peacefully on October 30th. He was 90 years old.
Many of you may have known John, who provided some of the first cash registers and point of sale systems to Alaskans before he and his wife, Phyllis, founded Skurla’s back in 1976. Even though he retired several years ago, his thoughts, ideas, and business principles still continue to guide and influence the company today. He meant so much to many different people. He was a boss, a father, a friend, a trusted advisor, and more. The team at Skurla’s POS Solutions honors John Skurla as the legend he was and will continue to cherish his memory for years to come.
His service will be at St John United Methodist Church on Thursday, November 11th at 4 p.m. AST. Please note that this service will require a mask to be worn. It will also be live streamed for those that can't attend in person (check this page for an update on how).
In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully asks that donations be sent to VA SPECIAL REHABILITATION EVENTS (Fund #4417) Donations from this fund are used to financially support the travel expenses for Veteran patients attending VA-sponsored rehabilitation events such as the National Veteran Golden Age Games as well as National Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic in Colorado.

I am guessing you hardly give thermal paper a thought. It is something you need to have in order to print customer and credit card receipts. Most people only think about it when they run out (especially if it is a busy Friday night!)
Well apparently, our support team started thinking about thermal paper Perhaps overthinking...
