GoTab Unveils EasyTab, A New Feature that Helps Servers and Bartenders Seamlessly Bridge Mobile Order and Pay-at-Table with Traditional Service
Restaurant commerce platform makes tab management – from order to close – fast, easy and hassle-free
Already at the forefront of contactless ordering and payment technology, restaurant commerce platform GoTab has announced today it is launching a new distinctive feature: EasyTab™. This feature, which leverages guest mobile devices, bridges traditional service and empowers guests by making opening, closing, reordering, and transferring tabs from bar to table fast, easy and hassle-free.
Designed to make the dine-in ordering experience even more convenient for servers and guests, EasyTab is one more feature that makes GoTab the most flexible tab-based ordering solution available on the market. Bridging traditional service models with guest-led ordering, EasyTab helps GoTab operators introduce contactless ordering to their guests, guiding them over the hurdle of using their mobile device to place their food and drink orders. EasyTab™ is changing the way technology supports restaurant operations, creating more positive, profitable experiences, specifically in restaurants with multiple dining areas and who cater to large groups or events.
“Operators are struggling with the double-edged sword of an influx of guests that are eager to return to in-venue dining and entertainment, while having to operate with less staff. At the same time, they can be reluctant to introduce mobile order and pay due to the resistance of guests and staff to learning new operating models. With EasyTab, we effectively solve the problem. The result is an elegant transition from traditional ordering through a server, to mobile ordering and payment, and back again, depending on the guest’s individual preference,” says Tim McLaughlin, GoTab CEO and Co-Founder.
GoTab’s all-in-one, cloud-based POS makes the systems restaurants use work more effectively, and reduces the top pain points restaurants face from staffing shortages, managing 3rd party platforms, and time spent on multiple transactions. The company’s customizable, scalable POS moves restaurants towards a more frictionless experience. The POS can run on nearly any existing hardware (iOS, Android, or PC), removing cost and time barriers restaurants face when looking to switch to innovative, customizable solutions. From quick-service to mid-size and fine dining restaurants, GoTab’s POS anticipates the needs of restaurant staff and guests, so restaurants can focus more time anticipating the needs of their guests, leading to enhanced guest experience and higher profitability.
Using GoTab’s Kitchen Display System and integrated printers, servers always know where to locate guests and deliver the food and beverage orders. Meanwhile, guests are free to move about, and reorder at their convenience without ever having to flag a server, close or reopen their tab. When friends join the party, guests can share their tab using GoTab’s native features for tab sharing (via text or QR code specific to their tab). When everyone is ready to leave, they can expedite the payment process by closing out and splitting the tab on their own on their mobile device. GoTab makes the payment process easy and seamless by clearly displaying all charges, fees and tip recommendations.
