Posted May 6, 2014

LOCFOOD is a modern point of sale (POS) software designed to connect consumers and merchants. Combining the functionality of POS and online ordering, the sleek, multi-purpose solution allows establishments in the hospitality industry to improve order accuracy, increase order turnover and streamline food preparation.

Using LOCFOOD’s solution – which has been developed for web, iOS and Android – customers can browse menus and restaurant information, place their order electronically and be notified when it is ready for pick-up.

The problem

When LOCFOOD began working with restaurant owners, they explained that because their tabled-based POS solution lacked a printer, it would be greener, eliminate paper waste and reduce printing costs. However, merchants explained that it is actually more practical for them to use a POS printer. They expressed their need to print order tickets to the kitchen and receipts to present to the customer. Restaurant owners explained that the kitchen area is too harsh an environment for tablets, as the device can easily come into contact with water, food and high temperatures.

How POS Receipts Build Sales And Loyalty

Posted January 14, 2014

2014-01-14_1001The coupon revival continues, and the source of those most often redeemed might surprise you.

According to the Annual Topline U.S. CPG Coupon Facts Report for Year-end 2010, released by NCH Marketing Services, Inc., marketers distributed 332 billion coupons for consumer packaged goods last year, marking the largest single year distribution of coupons ever recorded in the United States.
