No more waiting for the check at restaurants that install this latest pay-at-table system. As the following article describes, POS developer Squirrel Systems and mobile pay player MyCheck are collaborating on a pay-at-table platform.
Two of hospitality’s leading technologies companies have integrated their solutions to enable restaurant customers to self-checkout and close their open checks with minimal interaction from wait staff. MyCheck, a leading mobile payment technology platform, is enabling a seamless pay-at-the-table experience via direct integration to the Squirrel Systems point-of-sale system (POS). MyCheck allows guests to view, split and pay their bill straight from their smartphone without waiting for the check or the credit card slip, or the server coming over with a tablet or terminal.
Customers can redeem rewards and special offers which go straight into the Squirrel POS, and they can use any method of payment to close the tab, including credit card, debit card, Paypal, Android Pay, Apple Pay, MasterPass, Visa checkout and more.
“Squirrel Systems is known for enabling amazing guest experiences,” said Jason Leeson, President of Squirrel Systems. “Our restaurant management platform is proven to manage an entire food and beverage operation, from reservations, waitlist and table management, to order taking and payment processing.
By tying the MyCheck Mobile Payment App to our POS, restaurants can give their customers an even more frictionless and personalized experience. MyCheck is an easy way to connect diners to their tables and to their running tabs without having to involve service staff. The result is more efficient operations, higher server tips and faster table turnarounds.”
With the app, customers can view the live bill, split checks among diners, tip their server, pay, and receive rewards for their patronage. Via MyCheck’s MyWallet solution, multiple methods of payment can be linked to an account so consumers can choose which payment method to use each time.
Pay-at-table has become table stakes for the casual dining segment within the restaurant industry. Combining this feature with customer wants such as check-splitting and loyalty points is usually a winning combination. Restaurant owners also enjoy the benefits of pay-at-table through increased staff productivity and faster table turnover, something they desperately need in this time of increasing labor and overhead costs.
