5 Reasons It’s Time To Move Away From Your Countertop Terminal And Switch To Pay At Table Solutions

It’s always important to improve the service you offer to your customers. Occasionally, little improvements, like not having to make them leave their table to pay will create a positive impact on your overall business. Knowing when the right moment is to move away from your counter top terminal can be challenging. Here are five reasons why it’s time to try something new.

1. Paying At The Table Means Faster Service

By taking orders with a terminal like the Poynt and the Order On The Go Software, the second the order is received, it’s already sent to the kitchen. It creates fewer mistakes/miscommunications with the kitchen and makes the ordering process faster! Which then makes the customers,and staff happier and satisfied.

Same thing applies when it comes to paying directly at the table, having a faster checkout time for the customers creates a better service. Being able to pay right at your table, makes splitting bills a lot easier, as there is less likelihood of confusion between the customer and server. Another key point is that the Pay at Table Solutions are integrated with the restaurants POS systems, so it closes the table on the point of sale once the transaction is complete.
