PAY-AT-TABLE IN SECONDS
The point of sale isn’t over at the counter cash register by a bowl full of mints. It’s at tableside. TouchBistro POS lets servers quickly process payments at tableside. No running between table and counter. Customers enjoy the prompt service and restaurants benefit from a table freed up faster. TouchBistro even supports a sign on screen option for a paperless experience.
TouchBistro supports major payment gateways: Merchant Warehouse, Mercury, Moneris, Premier Payments, RBC Caribbean, and PayPal Mobile.
TAKE AND MODIFY ORDERS WITH EASE
With TouchBistro, servers enter customer orders at the table which are sent directly to the kitchen or bar. No more running back and forth to a distant terminal, because the terminal is always with the server. Every order is associated with an individual seat at the table, and orders are built one customer at a time, just like on paper, but with greater accuracy. Items can also easily be shared by the whole table, moved or modified, and notes and special requests are accommodated. Cost can be allocated to special requests, too!
NO HASSLE BILL SPLITTING
Split bills with a tap. Have a large party, some diners want individual checks, one couple wants theirs on one bill, and everyone at the table wants to share the cost of the wine and the appetizers? Oh, and this is sprung on you at the last moment? No problem. Ever. TouchBistro handles it with a few simple swipes and taps. Eliminate frustration, errors, and losing track of what diner has paid in full.
PRINT OR EMAIL RECEIPTS
Give your customers an environmentally friendly option by offering to email them a bill instead of printing it. Still need paper? TouchBistro integrates with a number of industry standard printers and peripherals for easy printing of a bill after a meal.
TOUCHBISTRO SHOWCASES YOUR MENU
Organize your menu items, merchandise, and drinks under pre-defined categories (Mains, Apps, Desserts) or customized categories. Import your menu item images from your photo library, your iPad’s camera, or find images on the Internet. All without leaving TouchBistro. Then let TouchBistro and iPad’s vibrant display showcase your offering, helping diners possibly on the fence, not familiar with your cuisine, or impeded by a language barrier make a decision.
MANAGE YOUR STAFF AND COSTS
Keep track of active staff, seasonal staff, and who is clocked in. Keep control of costs by entering rates of pay and cross reporting it with sales. Don’t wait until the end of night to figure out if you’re in the black. TouchBistro lets you run instant reports on labor and food costs.
KEEP CONTROL OF VOIDS AND DISCOUNTS
TouchBistro empowers your staff to make a bad situation right but keeps manager control over voids and discounts. Require manager pass code approval for voids. Limit discounts to discreet, pre-programmed reasons.
Don’t let your floor staff sell what’s no longer in stock. No more having to put stickers on paper menus because you’re out of a certain bottle of wine or beer. TouchBistro keeps track of what’s sold, how much is in stock, and warns servers when the item reaches a specified amount in stock or has run out.
Each server generates his/her own cash-out report, letting you know what cash is owed to the house and what credit card tips are owed to the server. A fool-proof End of Day utility ensures all waiters have clocked out, tabs have been closed, all orders have been completed, and all tables are empty before you run your official numbers.
CUSTOMIZE CHIT AND GUEST BILLS
TouchBistro lets you customize your kitchen chits and guest bills to your needs. Orders can be combined on one chit, by course, by item, and to specific printers. Print multiple chits (one for the chef, one for the plate). Guest bills can include your logo, tip guides that calculate amounts based on standard tip percentages, and a customized message you can alter at will.
CUSTOM FLOOR LAYOUT
Restaurateurs can quickly and easily lay out the floor plan for their restaurant or work from our templates. Add tables, section dividers and bar stools with the touch of a finger. Move, redesign or change the layout anytime. Once the design is complete, with TouchBistro staff can even combine tables temporarily to accommodate your dynamic environment.
MONITOR YOUR VENUE IN REAL TIME
TouchBistro sends sales and staff data to your own private, secure cloud site in real time. A dashboard gives you an up-to-the-minute executive summary of your sales and other key metrics. Eight other reports give at-a-glance insight into menu sales, payments, labor reports, and more across user configurable date range (daily, weekly, monthly, or a custom range).
MORE RELIABLE & SECURE THAN CLOUD-ONLY POS
If your Internet provider goes down or slows down, TouchBistro keeps on going. TouchBistro uses your own local Wi-Fi and a local server (Pro configuration) to keep all iPads in sync and store data. Your data is not stored in the cloud or kept on third party servers, ensuring speed, robustness, and confidentiality.
SETUP GLOBAL & LOCAL PRINTERS
Wirelessly print orders, receipts, and bar orders from your iPad. TouchBistro supports a number of industry standard impact and thermal printers and uses your own local Wi-Fi network or Bluetooth. Setup individual iPads with their own custom printers for use on patios or in event halls. You can also re-order printer supplies such as paper directly from this section.
REPORTS ON YOUR ENTIRE BUSINESS
At the end of a day, understanding what you’re serving and how your staff performed is critical to managing and growing your restaurant business. TouchBistro comes with Daily Sales Reports built right into the iPad app for easy nightly analysis. Get sales stats and charts with a tap. TouchBistro provides more than 30 different built-in, ready-to-use reports specifically designed to meet the reporting and analytic needs of food and drink venues.
