Modern Payment article
Digital innovations continue to be a driving force in changing how people make and receive payments. Cash registers are becoming obsolete as business owners now seek to achieve greater flexibility and control. Similarly, the days of basic systems and stationary credit card leaders are long gone. POS systems for restaurants are changing, evolving, and morphing in response to the demands of restaurateurs and other hospitality business owners for features that did not exist 10 years ago.


Impact of mPOS on Restaurants

The emerging startup business of mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) systems enables clean features to be considered in the overall restaurant-oriented design at a reasonable cost and with a lesser amount of time and effort. With mPOS systems, restaurants can enhance and improve their operational environment.

By opening the gates of traditional POS systems to external developers and the cloud, restaurant owners have ample opportunities to streamline existing processes, such as coupon redemption, and implement entirely new initiatives, like location-based marketing.

The ability of the mPOS solutions to provide versatility to restaurant payment systems is one of their greatest benefits. Using a portable device equipped with POS software, waitstaff can print food orders for the kitchen, create customer bills, and accept payments from a variety of options such as QR codes, UPI, debit cards, mobile wallets, and many others.  

At the same time, these POS systems can facilitate communication between various restaurant departments. For instance, every order can feed information in real-time, allowing for the automatic tracking of inventory levels. In many instances, point-of-sale systems can also manage restaurant reservations.


The Wave of the Future

In recent years, the introduction of new technologies has enabled smart business solutions, such as mobile point of sale (mPOS), which have pushed the hospitality industry to achieve higher levels of internal expertise in core operational areas.

The restaurant sector has long been a creative space that caters to consumers' and cultures' ever-changing tastes. There is now an embrace of technology that customizes the customer experience in unimaginable ways. Restaurant POS systems will play a prominent role in enabling these hospitality spaces to introduce new ways of serving food to customers, in the coming years, providing opportunities for POS solution providers to launch advanced restaurant POS systems and capitalize on them.

Impact of Cashless Transactions on Third-Party Payments

Article | September 22, 2022

In recent years, with the progression and development of information technology and the Internet, the third-party payment platform has experienced immense up-gradation. This has resulted in facilitating people's lives to a great extent and simplifying and transforming the method of payment. With the accelerated advancement in the era of the Internet and the significant rise in the scale of third-party payment transactions, in comparison to the conventional mode of payment, these solutions have substantially increased people's consumption power by not only making operations more convenient and reducing transaction costs, but also by safeguarding the rights and interests of both parties. Shift Towards Cashless Transactions Bolstering the Third Party Payments There is a rapid shift towards the use of cashless point-of-sale (POS) solutions, driven by the growing digitalization. According to a study, nearly 82 percent of the population in the U.S. are using digital or cashless payments—defined to include in-app or browser-based online purchases, QR codes, in-store checkout using a mobile phone, and person-to-person (P2P) payments. Citing the trend, about 27% of consumers and around 32% of business owners said they believe the U.S. will become a completely cashless society in the coming future. Third-party payment solutions add functionality to the cashless transactions and act as payment aggregators, providing freedom and flexibility to customers to select the solutions they find most favorable to meet their financial needs. Therefore, with increasing cashless transactions, third-party payment solutions will gain huge traction across the POS sector. What’s Next? With the improvement in the urbanization level, the continuous growth of the urban population, and the appeal of third-party payment solutions, it is crucial to tap into the spending potential of customers. Hence, leading POS solution providers are emphasizing on development and introduction of new third-party and mobile POS systems. For instance, Paynear Solutions Pvt. Ltd., a financial technology company, announced the launch of a third-party omnichannel cashless solution under an umbrella through a mobile PoS solution, enabling all the business owners signed up with Paynear to seamlessly accept UPI transactions.

Point-of-Sale Systems to Emerge as a Necessity for Modern Retailers

Article | July 14, 2022

Innovative POS systems with built-in advanced inventory management and secured payments to mandate their adoption by retailers. For businesses and retailers, conventional cash registers have long been an important part of sales operations during the past few years. But today, the cash registers of even the smallest of businesses are attached to a computer through "point-of-sale" (POS) systems. These novel solutions have garnered huge popularity over traditional cash registers as they not only ring up the sales but also provide crucial and real-time information about the customer and inventory. The importance of POS systems goes way beyond managing transactions at checkout counters across the retail industry. Emphasis on Improving Customer Experience Demands POS Adoption: With a growing fast-paced lifestyle, customers around the world are opting for faster, and more convenient shopping and billing experiences. Reassuring customers that their transactions are secure significantly increases satisfaction and customer loyalty. Since novel POS systems assist in providing faster checkout, flexibility in payment options, highly secured payments, and a seamless billing experience, these POS systems are extensively being adopted by modern retailers. According to a study, retailers across the U.S. lose nearly $45 billion, due to insufficient inventory in stock, and $224 billion, due to excess inventory. POS systems help in managing the inventory, resulting in declining losses by preventing excess or insufficient inventory. An estimate states that, an independent retailer with a $400,000 revenue can cut costs by nearly 10%, saving an average of $40,000 per year. What Comes Next? With technology getting better and new POS solutions like cloud-based, mobile, cashless payment, and others coming out, retailers are extensively installing POS solutions to make it easy for customers to pay. For instance, Veras Retail and ACCEO Solutions Inc., an American company specializing in all types of electronic payment transactions, announced plans to install their respective payment middleware solutions and point-of-sale software solutions in National Stores locations across Puerto Rico and the U.S. Hence, the growing focus on enhancing in-store customer experience and customer retention is mandating modern retailers to deploy POS solutions.

Retail Industry Forecast for 2022

Article | July 8, 2022

While retail has faced its fair share of challenges over the last two years, the pandemic has also provided an opportunity for a long-overdue great retail reset, which could help many retailers move into a more stable—and profitable—position. To get there, you must balance short-term challenges with long-term commitments and transformational thinking. For nearly two years, predictions about the future of retail have appeared pessimistic, and retail headlines for 2022 don't look much better: empty store shelves, over one million unfilled retail jobs1, and surging inflation. However, these headwinds have resulted in some positive outcomes: retailers have been forced to re-examine legacy systems and strategies that have shaped the industry for years. To reap long-term and long-lasting benefits, retailers should continue down the remediation path they started at the start of the pandemic in 2022. Indeed, the next 12 months’ present opportunities to restructure obsolete supply chains, rightsize inventory management, review pricing, rebalance promotional cadences, and reinvent the physical store for the digital age. This will almost certainly necessitate entirely new ways of thinking and long-term commitments from retailers, but these efforts have the potential to forever change the way retailers do business. That future begins today by addressing short-term retail challenges with a long-term perspective. Three retail industry priorities and trends The resulting data, when combined with insights from 15 Deloitte retail subject-matter specialists, client work, and prior research, provides a snapshot of strategies and investment plans that help inform the industry's future. Reimagine the workforce Supply chain resiliency Digital revolution Retailers face significant challenges that will almost certainly outlast the pandemic, but there are also unexpected opportunities that can help them prepare for future disruptions. Retailers should embrace the current disruption and commit to a future pivot. To learn more, download our complete 2022 retail industry outlook.

GoTab Delivers Multi-Operator Locations New Features to Streamline Guest Ordering & Payment While Dramatically Simplifying Operator Administration

GoTab | August 10, 2022

GoTab, a leading restaurant commerce platform, today announced new capabilities that enable multi-operator locations such as food halls, festivals, stadiums and others, to automate vendor payouts while enabling a streamlined ordering and payment experience for guests. With GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations, vendors receive individualized control of menu management and reporting, as well as direct payouts, including taxes and tips, on a daily basis. Ideal for food halls, entertainment venues, stadiums and more, GoTab creates a unified QR code ordering experience for all active vendors within a parent location, simplifying payment for guests and providing vendors with increased visibility, customization and sales transparency. Based on an analysis of existing operators that use QR ordering, GoTab has proven to make a direct impact resulting in 20% higher tips, 35-50% higher check averages, 25% faster table turns, and 30-50% increased labor efficiency. "As guests flood back to food halls, stadiums and other entertainment venues, they've come to expect the convenience of digital – fast, easy-to-use mobile ordering, one-touch payment and more. GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations empowers vendors to deliver that integrated ordering experience for guests, while reaping the benefits of increased visibility within the parent location, daily payouts, seamless menu management, and ultimately, increased sales." -Tim McLaughlin, CEO and Co-Founder GoTab. How Multi-Operator Works Individual vendors within a food hall, entertainment venue, stadium, or other multi-merchant location will have access to their own dashboard and create their personalized menu featuring available food offerings or retail products, which is then shared with the parent location. Guests can scan and order from a single QR code showcasing all of the vendors and their customized menus. Orders are then routed to the respective vendors' Kitchen Display System and/or printer for fulfilment. Once guests pay their tab, tips are allocated to each vendor by percentage of sales. A Unifying Experience for Guests with Individualized Control and Reporting for Vendors Purpose-built to streamline the vendor and guest experience, GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations provides the simplest way for guests to order across vendors – without having to download an app – and the easiest way for vendors to optimize order efficiency, receive payout and gain visibility. This new solution prioritizes transparency in sales, providing real-time access to sales and tab data and transferring payouts, including taxes and tips, directly to each vendor on a daily basis. For multi-vendor transactions, tips are automatically allocated by percentage of sales, which can be automated to the parent location. In addition, despite living on the same QR code, each vendor has the ability to create their own menus, products and messages that align best with their brand, showcasing consistency and easing communication with their guests. Further, since guests view all uploaded menus from a single QR code, each venue has more visibility across the parent location, increasing the likelihood of individual sales. GoTab for Multi-Operator Locations is revolutionizing the vendor experience at participating venues through first-of-its kind technology designed to simplify the guest ordering experience while empowering vendors with complete menu control, quicker payouts, real-time sales reports and more. About GoTab: GoTab, Inc., a Restaurant Commerce Platform (RCP), is helping large- and mid-sized restaurants, breweries, bars, hotels and other venues run lean, profitable operations while making guests even more satisfied. It integrates with popular point-of-sale (POS) systems and allows patrons to order and pay through a server, order and pay directly from their own mobile phones, or blend the two experiences all on one tab, through its easy-to-use mobile POS, contactless ordering and payment features, and kitchen management systems (KMS). The guest never has to download a mobile app or create a password. Operators get flexible features that can be rapidly applied to access new revenue streams via dine-in, take-out and delivery, ghost kitchens, retail groceries, and more.
