The night entertainment industry is a booking business and to be successful you need to provide great service for the customers. It is a very competitive industry and in most big cities customers have many options to select from so bars, restaurants & night clubs have to be on top of their game if they are to attract the right clientele. All systems might not work well for these establishments, therefore specialised POS hardware and software will need to be installed so care needs to be taken what systems you select. They need to be cost effective and provide good opportunities to serve customers better and be user friendly too. Apart from these let’s look at some of the other important features you mush looking to if installing a new system.
Adaptable for custom orders: bartenders can come up with the most wackiest or most innovative drinks and cocktails. Sometimes he may make them by himself or make them for orders. Being able to make these custom orders is a great skill and would be one reasons for customers to frequent one bar or night club over others. However, adding these complicated mixes in a point of purchase system needs to be facilitated. The cashier or the bartender must be able to add these in the system without much hassle.
Shared payments: one of the many frequent requests guests make is to split the bill and sometimes he or she may have a drink at the bar and them move to the restaurant to have a meal without settling payment at the bar so you need to have new club pos systems in place to be able to bill the customers according to their requirements. So billing at one location or even splitting the payments should not be a problem and is a must have in the industry.
Adaptability to menu changes: nowhere in a pub or a restaurant does the menu change so frequently like at the bar. Sometimes there will be changes every day or during weekends. You may have special promotions running or have happy hour drinks offers. So essentially the system you have should be versatile so that they can be updated changed in a quick succession. And the system should be accessible by the responsible staff and not require management input every time a menu item must be changed or updated.
