Instead of finding the customer in a list, you tap a New Customer button which prompts you for the customer's telephone number. Use the on-screen keypad to enter the number and you are finished. All of the customer's other information (name, address, etc.) can optionally be entered at this time, but most often it is quicker to enter the information on the PC after the order has been finished. Use a business card scanner connected to the PC and eliminate most of the manual typing!
