How it works

Central Stores uses Retail Management Hero and point-of-sale system. Once authorized users create an account, they start shopping at the store. All charges are applied to the account number the budget holder has provided. No other forms of payment are accepted.

The store billing cycle is closed at the end of each month. Journal vouchers that include all sales transactions related to both operating and research accounts are sent to finance where the expenses are drawn from individual accounts. Once the journal vouchers have been posted in the FAST Financial Reporting System, the payment is processed against your store account. Statement and payment copies along with a detailed purchasing report are sent to the account holder through inter-office mail.
