As technology has evolved – including how guests want to pay as well as how businesses want to operate – options have emerged to help restaurants run truly next-generation businesses. Cloud-based POS is a part of this progression.
Light-based beaming solution enables POS laser scanners to read barcode-based data on Android smartphones for true retail mobile wallets, meaning payment apps can now carry loyalty cards, membership cards, gift cards, tickets, vouchers and coupons.
Guaranteed to increase table turnover and guest satisfaction, the app’s pre-ordering feature allows guests to order food while waiting for a table, then receive the food quickly upon being seated.
In addition to preparation for the October 1st liability shift, a major benefit of the solution is the conversion of the POS system to a “Payment Unaware” state, which can reduce the compliance burden restaurants face on a recurring basis, and potentially lower ongoing costs.
Guests are able to order appetizers, desserts and drink refills, as well as pay their bill using the tablet tableside.
The restaurant chain deployed Paytronix in three key areas: promotions, messaging, and test-and-control features to help continuously recruit and engage with its loyalty program members.
A customer can buy a gift card in the store and use it online, order food online and pick up at the store, and earn loyalty points regardless of where the purchase is made.
The network was designed to ensure multi-carrier and multi-technology support, allowing for additional carriers to be easily added to the network.
Created to be as simple to use as a music playlist, Count helps restaurants like Dust Bowl Brewing Company control food costs, queue up orders automatically, and eliminate hours of inventory work.
Next phases in integration and partnerships in innovation make summertime POS-related headlines.
