Data Model

Transaction Log (TLog), XML-based standard data model of a POS transaction, maps directly to a customer interaction at the POS, Header-level information about a transaction, operator ID, store ID, start & end date, etc., Records for each article purchased as line items, article identifier (e.g. EAN barcode), quantity, Unit of Measure (UOM), Price, Tax impact, Supplemental Data, free-form XML space for customer-specific data extensions, directly associated with a line item, processed as a "BLOB" in POSDM by default, Records for each tender action, allows for multiple different methods of payment, may contain payment details (e.g. cheque number), Supplemental Data, free-form XML space for customer-specific extensions at the transaction level, logically at the same level as header elements

installed on a BI system
