Overview

Yellow Dog Inventory synchronizes data with Gilbarco. This document outlines requirements necessary to ensure a clean sync.

Yellow Dog Inventory will push all new item definitions into the POS as well as pull all sales and returns.

Yellow Dog Inventory syncs to the Gilbarco Passport POS once every hour. This is done by pushing the data file to the BOInbox shared folder and pulling transaction data from the shared folder BOOutbox.
