As a restaurant owner, you are probably looking for new ways to increase your business efficiency. Chances are, if you’ve visited any small coffee shops lately, you’ve noticed the mobile POS system they use on a tablet to run credit card purchases. Were you aware that your own restaurant could also use mobile POS for payment processing? Currently, Americard Payment is offering an amazing promotion on free POS systems with no money down for as little as $89 a month. As if that’s not enough of an incentive to adopt such an innovative system for your restaurant, we’ve included a list of the benefits of using a mobile POS system.
Quicken The Ordering Process
When your customers place their orders, the server either writes down the orders and then walks to the POS station to place the order or they (gulp) memorize the order and place it at the nearest POS station. If you have a mobile POS system, your servers can take the orders at the table using a mobile device and wirelessly send the order to the kitchen. This greatly increases efficiency while reducing the chance that the server places the wrong order. When customers request any add-ons, substitutes, or modifications, the server is more likely to correctly record the request and send it to the kitchen tableside.
Boost Ticket Size
When your waitstaff doesn’t have to run to and from a POS station, they have more time to spend with your customers. Customers love great service, and mobile POS gives the servers more time to focus on customer service, improving the overall dining experience. This extra time with customers provides an excellent opportunity for the server to upsell appetizers, drinks, or desserts. Your restaurant will make more money with added sales and your servers will make more money with bigger tips.
Increase Table Turnover
High volume restaurants in particular need to increase table turnover to ensure their success. When your servers use mobile POS to place orders and process payments, they can work faster. Customers are able to quickly place their orders and don’t have to wait as long for their checks, so tables can be reseated more easily.
Mobile POS systems in particular can help any restaurant with outdoor seating. Most traditional POS equipment is not made to withstand the harsh environmental conditions of the outdoors, which forces servers to constantly run inside to place orders and to process payments. Mobile POS eliminates this back and forth effort so that customers are in and out of the restaurant in shorter spurts of time.
Quicker Checkout Time
One of the biggest benefits of mobile POS systems is the speediness of checkout times. We’ve all experienced having a nice time dining out only to be upset by waiting forever to pay for our meal. Your servers can promptly check out customers using a mobile system, ensuring that they receive a great tip and your customers will come back.
With such a great deal on our online POS system, now is a great time for your restaurant to adopt this cutting-edge technology. Contact Americard Payment today to learn more about this truly enticing offer.
