Tablet PC Tableside: Order to Payment

Businesses are always on the lookout for ways to remain competitive in today’s environment. For firms in the hospitality industry, effectively communicating with customers is the key to keeping their edge. For restaurant operators specifically, embracing technology for mobile point-of-sale (POS) is the latest tool to provide enhanced customer service. The trend toward tableside order placement and payment is becoming increasingly popular as more and more restaurants move from stand-alone terminals to mobile computers equipped with payment applications and magnetic card readers.

Hardware is Evolving, Making POS Possible
Tableside order placement and payment is possible today as technology continues to evolve in the following ways:

  1. Lightweight mobile computer offerings
  2. More peripheral connections such as thermal printers and credit card readers
  3. Energy savings with lower consumption tablet computers
  4. Data security with PCI compliant security features
  5. More affordable hardware and software solutions
  6. Reliable cooling technology that does not require a fan
  7. Durable PC design with bright LED backlit touch screen display, a wide operating temperature range, dust, shock and spill-resistant casing
