What makes HOSTPOS the perfect choice of HOSTPOS System for Pubs & Bars?
One of the primary considerations when it comes to investing in an HOSTPOS system for a pub is the matter of security and how to reduce shrinkage from staff theft. HOSTPOS HostPoint has many features to help in the detection and prevention in this area.
HostPoint has been optimised for speed allowing you to sell your full product range with the minimal amount of key presses HostPoint has it’s own local internal copy of all it’s data, meaning that product and customer lookups as well as end of sale processing all happen instantly.
It’s all very well having the cleverest HOSTPOS system in the world, but there’s little point if you cannot make use of it. This is especially relevant in a pub that may have a high turnover of young staff. HOSTPOS’s HostPoint has been designed to be extremely easy to use and equally easy to maintain; adding new products and changing prices on the pub touch screen till is extremely simple and only a matter of a few steps that even the most technically averse can manage, you do not need to know how to work a PC in order to operate a HOSTPOS till system.
Images can be used on the keys rather than text making the training of new staff especially non native speakers a simple operation
Customer advertising screen allowing you to publicise upcoming events or promotions. The advertising screen can also show current sale information allowing people to easily see that the staff are registering what they are serving.
Multiple price levels for happy hours, functions etc these can be automated or manually changed.
Multi buy offers can be controlled by HostPoint making sure drinks that should be paid for are. For example the bar touch screen till system will automatically manage buy 1 get 1 free drinks promotions and adjust sales and stock levels accordingly, removing the opportunity for staff to perform the ‘get 1 free’ aspect of it on their own.
Link promotional items to your staff reports allowing you to offer incentives for the sale of these products. For example if you have some bottled beer that you need to shift quick, the till can tell you which staff member sold the most thus encouraging them to promote it.
HOSTPOS embedded Windows CE till systems are solid state, with no fans or hard drives. HOSTPOS is one of, if not the, most stable, bug and crash free HOSTPOS till software products on the market. It has had more than a decade in development and use and approximately 40,000 licenses in daily use.
HOSTPOINT can run on it’s own without the need for a server, connection to the internet or the back office PC meaning that no more space is required than the space taken up by the cash drawer. With less necessary components in the system comes enhanced reliability as there’s less chance for something to go wrong, furthermore even in a system of tills each HOSTPOS terminal can still operate on it’s own in the event of a network failure or failure of another POS terminal. All operations, including programming and configuration are handled on screen meaning that you have no need for a keyboard or mouse stashed under the bar area.
