Waiter Wallet's Game-Changing iPad POS System
In today's fast-paced and technology-driven world, restaurant owners constantly seek ways to streamline operations and enhance customer service. One technology restaurants have considered is handheld point-of-service (POS) systems. While numerous handheld POS devices exist, they all have several challenges:
- Protecting these expensive devices.
- Overcoming how cumbersome these electronic instruments are to use.
- Not boggling down servers as they navigate their fast-paced restaurant shift.
Further, even with a handheld POS device, servers must still securely organize their bank, receipts, and other waiter and waitress necessities on their person.
While Waiter Wallet resolved these challenges when it invented the server book in 2009, servers did not have portable technology devices to contend with then.
Admittedly, releasing our Waiter Wallet Deluxe iPad Mini took us a minute. But it was essential to ensure that the Waiter Wallet brought the same uncompromised perfection to using a handheld POS device as we brought to using an order pad.
Thankfully, the Waiter Wallet's proprietary design was perfect for securely housing the iPad Mini, one of the best interfaces for handheld POS systems. Even better, it did so while providing the waitstaff with the same unparalleled organization we are known for.
With its seamless integration of the iPad Mini into a server book, Waiter Wallet has revolutionized how waiters and waitresses use technology to handle orders, process payments, and organize themselves during their restaurant shifts. In this blog, we will explore the evolution of the Waiter Wallet and the benefits of our iPad POS solution.
The Evolution of the Waiter Wallet
Waiter Wallet has come a long way since its inception, constantly striving to improve the server book to help make the already challenging job of waiting tables easier for every server.
By recognizing the needs of servers and the challenges they face, Waiter Wallet has developed an innovative solution that combines the traditional server book with the power of an iPad POS system.
This evolution marks a significant turning point in how restaurants handle their front-of-house operations, bringing unprecedented efficiency and organization.
Integration of iPad Mini into Waiter Wallet
More and more restaurants have asked us to develop a Waiter Walel for handheld systems in recent years. Despite the growing popularity of technology, we were hesitant about the benefits of its implementation in restaurants.
We have always believed that writing is the best, most engaging, and least intrusive way to take a guest's order. After all, is there any time when a server is more singularly focused than entering an order into the POS?
With a handheld device, they now enter orders on a much smaller interface while ignoring the guests. That isn't to say these devices don't work well in some restaurant environments But, given the expense and further hindrance imposed on servers, we still questioned if the few seconds saved going to a POS station were worth it.
The number of different devices also challenged us; making a Waiter Wallet for everyone wasn't feasible with so many options. But, thankfully, the iPad Mini, arguably the best POS interface, fits perfectly into our system for several reasons:
- The Waiter Wallet's silhouette closely matches that of the iPad Mini. It even still fits into an apron pocket.
- Despite the larger size, we could compensate for the iPad's thickness by reducing our wallet pocket size by fifty percent while increasing the iPad Mini's wallet capacity.
We were able to make all our free restaurant templates compatible with the new Waiter Wallet version.
We also realized that the iPad Mini provided an excellent opportunity for a highly effective marketing solution. If allowed to hang over, the large transparent window is perfectly positioned in front of guests whenever a server takes an order. To take advantage of this opportunity, we developed a new marketing template that allows restaurants to upload an image of a menu item they want to feature, add a headline, and even their logo.
In seconds, a restaurant can now create a powerful marketing tool that is effortless for servers to incorporate into their service routine. For example, imagine an image of a mouth-watering cheesecake. The server can reference the image and ask the guest, "Have you tried our cheesecake? It's amazing. Should I put one aside for dessert?" What better time to sell dessert than when the guests are most hungry? Not only have you upsold dessert and likely additional beverages, but servers can immediately fire it when guests finish their meal for faster turns.
