"We estimate the tableside ordering system will cut customer wait time by 5 to 10 minutes per table" - Travis Chun
Bellingham, WA (PRWEB) October 04, 2012
POSGuys.com, provider of complete POS solutions, announced the launch of tableside ordering for restaurant POS systems. These systems enable waitstaff to send orders from anywhere in the restaurant, cutting customers' wait time for their meal and eliminating order entry errors.
The tableside ordering system leverages the power of Aldelo Pro For Restaurants POS Software, integrating with existing Aldelo restaurant solutions. Unlike Aldelo Wireless POS Software, which requires investment in a server PC and mobile computer, the tableside ordering system uses a tablet PC running Windows XP software, capable of running a full license of Aldelo Pro for Restaurants. Employees will have the same experience with the tableside ordering system as they do with a standard POS system or order station.
Jono Manion, Product Developer and Content Director, said: "Our customers have wanted to add mobility to their restaurants, but Aldelo Wireless POS Software requires a tremendous investment of time and money. Once set up, employees have less tools at their disposal than at a traditional POS system. We wanted to offer a solution that gives employees full software functionality from anywhere in the restaurant. The Tableside Ordering System is just that."
Included in the system are the Partner Tech EM-220 tablet PC, integrated credit card reader, Star Micronics SM-T300 mobile receipt printer, and Aldelo Pro for Restaurants license. The EM-220 tablet PC runs Windows XP, giving you the full functionality of a POS system running Aldelo Pro for Restaurants software.
POSGuys.com developed the Tableside Ordering System to fill a growing need for full-service dining establishments. Often, wait staff visit multiple tables before entering order information; with a Tableside Ordering System, orders can be entered on-the-fly. The tablet connects to a restaurant's Aldelo POS system through their wireless network, providing real-time ordering, as well as any updates such as menu item availability.
"For restaurants where the server will not be the one bringing out the food, or it is common to split individual checks, having the ability to place orders on the fly, or print out a receipt in front of the customer without having to go back to a pay station greatly increases efficiency. We estimate the tableside ordering system will cut customer wait time by 5 to 10 minutes per table," said Travis Chun, Director of Operations for POSGuys.com. "The time savings will improve turnover, enabling restaurants to seat more customers per night and providing a better overall experience for the customers and staff."
With the integrated card reader and mobile receipt printer, payment can be taken at tableside, preventing the card from leaving the customer's field of view and providing a framework for greater PCI compliance. All of this adds up to a terrific solution for restaurants wanting to maximize throughput and security.
