Back in the day, imagining a sentient cash register that could perform its own tasks without much human assistance would’ve been considered impossible. Thanks to mPOS—mobile Point-of-Sale—it’s actually a thing.
Sit down, traditional cash registers and hours upon hours of manual computation—we live in the age of the machine. A smartphone, a tablet, any phone is perfectly capable of doubling as a cash register these days—and is a great aide to businesses, especially to eateries.
Californians: Hearty Eaters
Californians love food. The state has 76,201 places where you could hang out for a bite or a sip of water. 1,830,000 jobs in the restaurant industry help people earn their livelihood. Standing out from the thousands of eateries around is a matter of clever strategies: and that’s where mPOS comes in.
How mPOS Systems Differ from POS Systems
Most restaurants use POS systems for their payment and other computation management issues. The technology helps with the collection and protection of data, customer retention and engagement, and boosts sales.
However, mPOS systems are not a solid, immobile system like the conventional POS. Mobile mPOS is mobile—and ideal for on-the-go eateries. It fits on your palm—because it’s your phone that’s doing the job. You forego the hardware but keep the features, and ensure that your customer retention and sales are still going strong.
It’s Easy to Use
From processing transactions in the fraction of a second to simplifying the checkout process, mPOS drives one goal home: saving time. By promising customers receipts via email, you save hundreds of minutes, which can be put to menial manual jobs such as turning tables and prepping food. Wait staff efficiency increases significantly with mPOS.
It’s Easy to Integrate
No matter how updated your current business model is, you can always integrate it with your mPOS. Whether it’s staffing management or online orders, all can be integrated since mPOS is all about sophisticated tech.
It Gives You Better Insight
mPOS is a transparent mode of doing business that enables you to keep up with your staff and customers, even if you’re physically absent from the site. Based on this model, you have better insight in case you want to make changes for improved customer satisfaction.
The biggest benefit of mPOS, of course, is the capacity for customer engagement that comes with it. Business owners have the option of creating and automatically updating customer profiles, their orders, their payments, their reviews, so on and so forth. Based on these profiles, it’s easy to plan discounts or reward points for repeat customers, which is always a great idea in terms of customer retention.
