Restaurant Industry News

Whether it’s a local brewpub, taproom, or micro-brewery, it’s safe to say breweries have become more popular than ever before. Here to stay, gone are the days of dingy warehouse brew factories. With craft beer culture expanding, breweries are stepping up their game, offering tours, merchandise, and in many cases, food. Quickly becoming an urban icon, with their increase in popularity, many breweries now need an integrated all-in-one point of sale (POS) system.

 With so many options for processing payments, it can be confusing to decide which POS is the right one. When you’re running something unique such as a brewpub, your processes must run at an optimum level. A POS for a brewery needs to be able to handle services not normally offered by standard bar/restaurant POS systems. Forget old-school cash registers and basic card processing machines. Small and large businesses are upgrading to POS systems that operate on iPads and iPhones for more perks while spending less money.

 To streamline all aspects of the business, here are the newest POS upgrades the smartest breweries are tapping into: 

Mobility

A reliable brewery POS software system and easy-to-use payment processing let you organize operations, automate tasks, and boost productivity, saving you time and money. Want to keep track of your in-house brews and keg rentals with one system? With new POS systems, you can process transactions anywhere and have them accounted for within the same system. Now, pubs can process transactions on the spot while delivering kegs to restaurants, events, and festivals.

The last thing you want to do is turn down sales at events by having your POS system go down or going to cash only. Choose a reliable POS system that offers offline mode to keep the transactions going. Patrons at mobile events don’t want to carry cash, so be there to take their card payments with an upgraded mobile POS system.

Mobile POS Features

  •       Take payments at events and stop saying no to money
  •       Take the payment system to the patron to let them pay at the table
  •       Advanced access for cocktail waitresses
  •       Take all types of payment methods while mobile, boosting sales
  •       Keep track of all payment types and locations with one system
  •       Sync your inventory across all devices even when on the move
  •       Automated ticketing means your servers don’t have to return to the bar for each order
  •       Reduce the time and error of taking orders by giving all servers a mobile device to take orders

Bar Tabs

Create a full-service experience. Run simultaneous tabs for customers who swipe their card and leave the tab open, an incredibly helpful feature. Categorize bar tabs by credit card or by a customer’s name. Remove the stress of storing and finding patrons’ credit cards. Now, it’s simple to keep credit card numbers associated with the tab for faster settling, and unparalleled service. Even better, visitors can add on merchandise during their visit, such as ordering a drink and a shirt at the same time, without the hassle of separate transactions.

Customers are more likely to place multiple orders if their card is only being run once. It makes them think less about the amount they are spending and allows them to be more spontaneous when paying on a tab.
