MobileBytes, a point-of-sale system provider for iPad, has launched mobile payment options for counter and table service restaurants and announced two additional major new features.
“The goal at MobileBytes is to provide restaurateurs with a POS system that helps manage their business and that makes them money,” MobileBytes CEO Dan Calderone said in a press release issued from the Retail Solutions Providers Association 2017 RetailNOW show. “Mobile payment is a nationwide trend that can cut down on table turn times and increase revenue for restaurants.”
MobileBytes is adding what it calls Scan-to-Pay and Skip-the-Line features.
For Scan-to-Pay, a QR code is then printed on the bottom of every meal ticket the restaurant provides to its guests, who in turn use the MobileBytes app to scan the code, add a tip, and pay their tab. The restaurant and server are immediately notified through their MobileBytes POS system when a bill has been settled
Skip-the-Line enables customers to place their order and pay for their meal directly through an app when they arrive at a restaurant, effectively skipping the line. Customers who have downloaded the MobileBytes app will be prompted to use Skip-the-Line as soon as they enter a participating restaurant.
