“Round up the amount, please!”

It’s always nice to get an extra reward by means of tipping. These earnings can also be tracked in our Point Of Sale. You can easily add an amount as tip to each payment separately. Whether the payment is in cash or by card.

The reports show you who received which tips and when they got them.

  • Register tips in POS
  • Receive reports of tips

Do you want to view an open account? Want to know what your guests ordered? When an account is open for a longer period, confusion may arise whether or not the recorded articles on the bill are correct. The feature ‘History account’ shows you exactly what articles were ordered for this table. You immediately see the date and time when they were ordered and which employee entered them in the POS. Naturally, this list can also be printed.

  • Full history of orders
  • see who entered what and when

“How much does the guest spend on average?”

You want to know how much one guest spends on average? To answer this question you’ll have to know how many guests per table you have. An unTill® POS has a built-in system which keeps up with the number of place settings. Per each sales area you can enter the number of covers. For the restaurant this might be useful information, on your terrace probably not.

Every time you open a new table you can have the POS ask for the number of place settings. You enter the number of persons seated and if later on extra guests join the table you can adjust this number. As long as there’s an open account for the table it will not ask this question again. Next you can see a report on the number of place settings. For example:

  • Average spending per table or per place setting
  • Average number of place settings per table
  • Average number of place settings per sales area
  • Number of place settings when opening table
  • Number adjustable when in use
  • Reporting for number of place settings
  • Average spending per place setting
  • Set up per sales area

“Order a bottle of liquor and get the first five glasses of fizzy drink free “

When you offer package deals it is very convenient that the Point Of Sale handles this automatically. With unTill® you can easily program this by using so-called ‘bonus articles.’ This comes in handy when you sell a package with a number of free items or that have a different price.

You add the articles to a bonus group and give them their divergent prices or no price at all. Next you link this group to the package-article. When a package deal is selected on the POS all underlying bonus articles get the different prices. This can also be just the first few items in the group.

Examples:

  • Sale of a bottle of liquor: first 5 fizzy drinks for free
  • Party package deal in the reception room: all beer, wine and soft drinks free/included
  • Special pizza: all toppings half price
  • Group of articles at divergent prices or free of charge
  • Depending on the chosen package
  • Every article in the group or a number of these

“This coffee is on the house!”

Discount, maybe you rather wouldn’t give it. But when you do, in what way? With an unTill® POS many ways of discount are possible. This option is only available for co-workers with sufficient operating rights.

  • Discount on one article
  • Discount on a selection of articles
  • Discount on a pre-set group of articles
  • Discount on the total bill

For each way of discount the user has to give a reason. You can select a reason from a pre-defined list or enter manually. Much used ways of discount you can program under a button. So you don’t have to push all sorts of buttons before you can give someone a coffee on the house for example.

  • Fixed amount or percentage
  • Per article or entire bill
  • Discount for article group
  • Unlimited number of reasons for discount to be given
  • Broken, representation or other

“I didn’t order this coffee…”

One article too many or incorrectly put in POS, a guest who wants to change his order, mistakes always occur. But as entrepreneur you don’t want to give your staff full freedom to refund items.

An unTill® Point Of Sale system has the tools to limit and monitor this. Per server you can set whether he/she has the right to correct articles. If a waiter has these rights you can even set the number he or she can do this each day. For every cancellation a reason has to be given: from a pre-set list or freely to fill in.

When a co-worker doesn’t have these rights you can program the system that only a manager can authorise this action. The actions are reported to the name of the co-worker. The user selects the article in “the ordered articles” list, presses the bin symbol and selects a reason. At the end of a day you have a precise overview who, when and why cancelled which articles.

  • Server can or can’t correct
  • Set a limit of corrections per day
  • Cancellation reason
  • Extensive report option

“Take advantage of our happy hour!”

Do you wish to use different prices for example for a certain period, a sales area or a guest? With the unTill® POS system you can set multiple prices for one article. With it you can have special actions such as “happy hour” start and end automatically, or you can use different prices for VIPS or regulars.

Different price on your terrace than in you pub? No problem, because the table the articles are added to sets the price of those items. That is easily done beforehand.

  • Unlimited number of price levels
  • Separate prices for VIPs or regulars
  • Each sales area (table series) has it’s own price level
  • Price level is active in a pre-set period

“Do you want to me to create a menu of your entree, main course and dessert? “

With unTill® you can create so-called combo-articles. This gives you flexibility to handle menus, promotions and combined articles.

An additional advantage is that you can split the VAT of the underlying items. For example, you make a combination of cola and rum and call this “Baco”. The guest sees this on his bill, while in your accounting the rum and the cola are booked separately.

Automatic menu suggestions are given by the cash register. If a starter and main course have already been taken from the menu, the system asks if a menu should be made after the dessert has been ordered. The price of a combo article is calculated by the total of the underlying articles.

  • Combination of articles and/or option group(s)
  • Automatically calculates the price
  • VAT split between underlying articles
  • Combine suggestions after input in POS

“I’ll have the special with medium fried steak, please”

When you use a specials menu you’ll want the ability to print the separate courses in the kitchen. But on the guest’s bill you only want the name of the menu.

In an unTill® Point Of Sale system you program the underlying options. All courses are separately printed in the kitchen and asked for service. The menu has a pre-set price. More expensive options added, automatically raise the price of the menu.

  • The guest only sees the name of the menu on the bill
  • The kitchen sees the separate courses and options
  • Asking for service of underlying courses
