ShopKeep Upgrades Point-of-Sale Technology for Bars and Restaurants
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
The technology bars and restaurants use just got a huge upgrade.
which is currently used in more than 10,000 small businesses, today
described new features that were recently added to its cloud-based
point-of-sale software. Together, they improve how full-service bars and
restaurants accept payments and manage operations.
"Bar and restaurant owners are not usually technologists, so all they
want is a point-of-sale system that is easy to use and that helps them
run a better business," said Jason Richelson, ShopKeep's founder and
co-CEO. "My experience as a former small business owner allows ShopKeep
to build solutions that solve the actual problems owners face."
ShopKeep's newest feature, Check
Management, allows users to hold tabs open for customers throughout
a shift and let them pay for their transaction whn they are ready.
Merchants can ring up a customer who may not be ready to finish the
transaction and move onto the next customer - without having to delete
the previous tab. What's more, the intuitive design allows staff to
learn the system in minutes.
Later builds naturally on the Open Check functionality to provide
flexibility about how and when customers are asked to tip. Waiters can
now take cards after a meal, authorize the customer's card, and bring a
receipt back to the table for the tip.
Instead of paper and inefficient restaurant operations, restaurant
managers can equip staff with iPad Minis to take orders and accept
payments right at the table. As soon as the server places the order,
tickets can be sent to the kitchen and bar, so staff can start preparing
the customer's food immediately. These new features save precious time
at the beginning and end of meals, creating a better customer experience
and helping restaurateurs turn their tables quicker.
"ShopKeep exists to make running a small businesses better, and our
mission is to replace cash registers and legacy Windows-based POS
systems with iPads and cloud computing. This upgrade will help the
country's many independent bars and restaurants grow," Richelson said.
