You Know Your Restaurant Needs a Tablet-POS System… But What Else?
From casual dining – to pubs – to fine dining establishments, technology is taking the restaurant industry by storm, specifically the momentum for tablets.
These tremendous weapons allow for improved order accuracy, streamlined operations, and a transformation in the overall customer experience when combined with powerful point-of-sale software. But beware, tablet-based POS systems aren’t one size fits all. If you’re thinking about using an iPad POS solution for your business, there are many tools to consider depending on your restaurant size, the functionality needed and your budget. Here are a few add-ons we recommend to compliment any restaurant:
A key component to transforming an iPad into a point-of-sale system is the stand. The proper stand needs to have the correct mix of security, functionality and attractiveness. The Vault Enclosure is an elegant and durable solution that can be used as your main countertop terminal or at server station throughout the restaurant. You can also pair it with a Rotation Base to allow it to swivel towards your customers for on screen signature.
By now you’ve probably decided that you want to utilize the iPad, but have you thought about leveraging the iPad Mini as a part of your POS Solution? It might not be large enough for your restaurant’s main POS terminal, but it’s the perfect tool to be used on your restaurant floor. iPad Minis provide the same functionality as a standard-size iPad, but are lighter and easier to carry around. This makes them ideal for restaurant servers, enabling them to take orders tableside.
Whether you’re line busting during the lunch rush, or taking orders table-side, the Griffin AirStrap makes it easier, safer, and more fun to utilize an iPad POS-system in your restaurant. In addition to protecting your iPad, it has rotating functionality, giving you the best viewing angle, landscape or portrait. The built-in neoprene strap hugs your hand, gently but firmly, making your iPad easy to hold in one hand, while leaving your other hand free to swipe payments or utilize the touch-screen.
Not all items can be rung up by quantity, so incorporating a scale directly with your POS system eliminates the need for double entry for items that need to be rung up by weight. The Brecknell Scale is perfect for yogurt shops, delis, or other QSR’s that sell products by the weight. This integrated point-of-sale scale will save your business both time and money.
