Dickie Brennan’s latest New Orleans restaurant, Tableau, will be the first live implementation of a new combined payment technology with Viableware and PayPal. Viableware has announced that PayPal payments will be accepted on the RAIL payment platform, a mobile payment device that enables full-service restaurants to securely accept various forms of payment at the table. The integration expands PayPal’s presence in the dining vertical and will enable the payment service on all RAIL devices expected to be implemented by more than 20 of the nation’s most recognizable full-service restaurant brands within the next year.
Viableware’s RAIL is a handheld device designed to replicate the look and feel of the traditional bill presentation folder used at most full-service restaurants – but unlike the original, the RAIL allows guests to securely self-swipe credit or debit cards, auto-calculate the tip, split the bill multiple ways, pay-by-item, and direct-email receipts. It also hosts a number of other functional apps that can be used by full service restaurants to provide better service or improve the customer experience. The RAIL payment platform seamlessly integrates with leading restaurant POS systems from MICROS, NCR Aloha, and Dinerware and has been certified to the security standards of 11 of the leading payment processors.
Tableau is a three-story restaurant in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter with seating for 325 guests. The restaurant is one of several establishments owned and operated by Dickie Brennan & Co., including Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse, Palace Café, and Bourbon House.
