“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.

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

“Would you like your steak rare, medium or well-done?”

You want to offer your customers different options. Conveniently our POS can be programmed to remind your co-worker to ask the guest certain questions while an order is placed. You can add one or more mandatory options to an article e.g., rare/well done, side dish, which sauce, and so on. This option can also be applied for beverages, should whipped cream be added for instance. Or do you want to make it a mixed drink?

An unTill® Point Of Sale is very flexible in its design, it provides you with loads of possibilities. You can set check boxes per sales area, for example: in the chip shop you can have the standard question for extra ketchup, but not set this for the restaurant. Every option can be corrected. If a steak has to be well-done instead of medium for instance.

You can also set standard options. A medium steak is standard, but the option for rare and well-done can be selected. Besides this there are many options to set free choices, this feature is optional.

  • Mandatory choices possible per article
  • Set a standard choice
  • Choice dependent on sales area
  • Choice correction

“Can I pay part of the bill now?”

When guests want to pay a part of the bill this can be easily done. You enter the amount of the partial payment and choose the method of paying. A receipt is printed for the guest and that part of the bill is paid.

The reports show the correct turnover data. Only the paid articles register as such. The guest can keep ordering new items to this account. And even partially pay the bill again. This can be repeated until the whole account is paid for and closed.

This feature comes in handy when a person from a group goes home early and wants to pay his/her share. This way the account stays open and the remaining people can keep ordering and pay at their convenience.
