Faster Checkout With Star’s TSP100III

Posted December 28, 2017

Mobile-BytesIt’s the holiday season, which usually means that malls and stores are filled with customers. After the big crowd, shoppers don’t want to wait too long to get served. Instead, some restaurants can facilitate the ordering process with self- checkouts that moves the line quicker, increase ticket size, improve order accuracy, and serve customers faster.

Table side ordering helps your servers input orders directly to the kitchen with an iPad at the table. No need to waste time writing the order down. Your customers will be pleased with faster service, and you will turn more tables throughout the day. At the end you can even capture electronic signatures and tip amounts by processing transactions directly at the table.

Kiosks are used in other venues as well such as movie theaters, banks, and hotels. It gives the customer a choice to do self-checkout.

Here are four reasons why you should consider using kiosks.

  1. Shorter Wait Time- These kiosks help ensure shorter lines and less waiting. The customer can submit their order and processed their payments.
  2. Expedited Orders- Restaurant kiosks cut out all the waiting time to place an order, so your staff can focus on food preparation and turning tables creating a more efficient and customer friendly operation at your place.
  3. Promotions and Upselling- Fast food giant McDonald’s reported that its average check size went up 30% after implementing self- checkouts. A kiosk can upsell/ cross sell on every screen and every transaction. This can give diners to try extras that they may not have otherwise ordered.
  4. Improved Order Accuracy- To be able to directly send orders into the kitchen, this eliminates unreadable, hand- written tickets. Taking orders from a kiosk can save time and money by reducing number of forgotten orders, errors, and resources spent that were improperly inputted in the POS system.

Implementing self- checkouts at quick service restaurants can increase the average check size, reduce wait times, and increase customer satisfaction. Having the perfect products for your kiosk is key to a successful checkout process and Star Micronics can offer you a shorter wait time with their TSP100III receipt printer. Its high speed printing can print out the orders and receipts for faster checkout. The TSP100III is also offered with WLAN and Bluetooth connectivity option to print receipts from anywhere in the restaurant.
