Q8-53.   Where  on  the  money  order  report  would  a missing voucher be noted? Now turn to appendix 1 to check your answers. INTEGRATED RETAIL TERMINAL Learning Objective:   Recall the capabilities and   components   of   an   Integrated   Retail Terminal (IRT). The Unisys Series 2000 Integrated Retail Terminal (IRT)  is  the  most  technically  advanced  system available at an MPO.  The IRT’s unique design assists the  clerk  in  providing  fast,  accurate,  and  efficient service to the patron; however, the IRT is only available at  shorebased  MPO’s.    What  you  have  previously learned can be accomplished in a matter of seconds by just pressing one or two keys on the IRT keyboard. Some  of  the  IRT’s  capabilities  include:  automatic calculation  of  domestic  and  international  postage rates;  rate  comparison  between  classes  of  mail; administrative  report  printing;  ZIP  Codes  to  postal zone  conversion;  and  calculation.    The  IRT  is  also capable  of  recording  each  transaction  as  it  is completed.  This recording is an electronic journal of the day’s activities. This system has been designed so that it can be operated with ease.   The IRT is an integrated system comprised of three major components: the integrated module, the customer display, and the receipt printer. Below is a brief explanation of each component: ·   INTEGRATED  MODULE—The  integrated module  is  the  system’s  main  component.    It contains  the  electronic  scale,  clerk  display, keyboard,  and  disk  drive.    It  also  houses  the central  processing  unit  (CPU)  and  resident memory.  See figure 8-37. ·   CUSTOMER DISPLAY—This is a seven-inch remote display, which can be placed up to 6 feet from  the  integrated  module. The  customer display  shows  the  same  information  as  the clerk’s display. ·   RECEIPT PRINTER—This component is used to print, on demand, both customer receipts and administrative reports. The printer does not have a  power  switch.    It  is  automatically  activated when   printing   administrative   reports   or customer’s receipts.   If you want the printer to print all transactions as you enter them into the system,  then  you  can  activate  the  printer  by pressing  the  PRINT  ON/OFF  key  on  the keyboard. The  printer  has  an  out-of-paper indicator light and a paper advance button on its front panel. When a new roll of paper needs to be installed,  the  indicator  light  goes  on,  an electronic  alarm  sounds,  and  a  pop-up  printer error window appears on your screen.   Use the paper  advance  button  any  time  you  want  to advance receipts or blank paper. 8-52
