The Age of Technology

Technology comes in many forms – in times past technology might have been attributed to such innovations like the musket or the design of a sail.  In this day and age it cannot be denied that to the majority of the world, the word ‘technology’ will be attributed to computers and other clever devices.

As a company that sells and installs technology we thought that we would articulate some of the reasons as to why you might want to consider our products *shameless plug*.  So you may be a restaurant owner or someone in charge of the operations side of a nightclub.  You may even have had a look at our products and were considering buying an Epos System – so here we are to help try to persuade you!

Let us take the example of a restaurant.  For as long as I can remember waiters have been scribbling down orders taken at tables and then disappearing to the kitchen to deliver said order…sounds simple doesn’t it?  So why would you spend money when the system you have in place already works, after all if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.  The issue is that it may work but as with all business, often the margin is made in efficiency.  Mistakes can be costly so why would you not look to improve what we consider to be an old fashioned process?  If you think about it, pen and paper comes with some pretty obvious issues:

–               Not everyone has perfect hand writing.  Some can be almost illegable to anyone other than the writer.

–               Writing something takes longer than pushing a button.  Fact.

–               Paper gets lost in transit.

Epos systems take away this margin of error.  They are easy to use, easy to train on and once installed are reasonably simple to run.  Take for instance the issue of bad hand writing.  No longer do waiters have to write anything down, they simply push a button on their hand held tablet and dependant on the system these orders can then be relayed digitally to the kitchen where it is printed off.  Much more organised and efficient.  These types of systems really come into their own during the busiest times where everything turns a little bit manic….anyone who has worked in a busy restaurant will know exactly what we are talking about.

So the process is slick, mistakes are reduced.  So what are the other benefits?  Well let’s be honest, the decor of a restaurant can drastically effect view that the customers have of the restaurant.  An old noisy till which requires the manual input of prices can look very out of place in a swanky restaurant where everything is brand new.  An Epos system  might not make the food taste better but will certainly make an impression on the customers.  Remember…..tablets look cool.

Sales pitch over.  Have a look at our various systems and do not hesitate to get in touch – we are always happy to answer any questions you might have on the systems, installation or support.  Fire us over an email or just pick up the phone, we look forward to hearing from you.
