Cashless is Coming; Some Tips on How to Get Started
Cashless offers numerous benefits to both customers and operators.
CASHLESS BENEFITS FOR THE CUSTOMER
What are the benefits of credit/debit card program for your customer?
1) The time to purchase an item is significantly reduced, especially utilizing the new “tap and go” cards. The reduced purchasing time allows the lines to move quicker providing your customer's employees more time to enjoy their meal during their limited break time.
2) Employees are able to purchase a greater variety of items even if they do not have the proper cash denominations. The benefit to your customer is increased productivity and morale as employees will stay within the facility for lunch breaks.
3) Verifiable online sales tracking from total cash and credit sales down to the transaction detail level. Detail transaction information includes the transaction amount, whether the transaction was cash or credit, the time the transaction occurred, and the purchased item's column number. Information that you can provide to your customer if you wish.
4) For the commission conscious account, the sales increase due to the sales of higher-end products, the higher amount of sales per transaction, the increase in multiple product purchases per transaction and finally, the ability to offer higher prices for all items all comes down to increased commission dollars for the account.
