If there’s one industry where the quality of the payments experience is crucial to business success, it’s hospitality.
If there’s one industry where the quality of the payments experience is crucial to business success, it’s hospitality. Customers in this space have a very particular set of requirements when it comes to payments, which is why Optomany has a dedicated hospitality service built on our robust, feature-rich axept® platform.
We’ll be at the Restaurant & Bar Tech Live show in London next week showcasing the service, our latest terminals, and partnerships with innovative players like Lolly and Pennies.
Be sure to drop by to Stand 2822 if you want to find out more.
Focus on the customer
Payments in the hospitality sector is a high stakes game. This is a highly competitive £100bn industry where businesses are always looking for the extra something to give them an advantage. As the last interaction you have with a customer before they leave the premises, the quality of the payments experience could mean the difference between success and failure. Get it right and you’ll not only have a great chance of securing repeat custom, but also positive reviews all over the web, which can help to drive further growth.
Think about it: you may have spent a huge amount of time and money on developing a menu, buying in the best ingredients, hiring the right staff and refurbishing the premises. So why not take the same care with payments?
At the show
As you’ll see at Restaurant & Bar Tech Live, this is an exciting time to be in payments. Optomany will be on stand throughout the event showing off:
Our hospitality service: based on the industry-leading axept® platform, it offers a range of functionality for the hospitality owner. We empower servers to take payment and issue receipts wherever the customer is, directly from the card machine. This ensures a better all-round experience for everyone and means tables can be turned faster to maximise profits and productivity. The service also offers integration with a range of hospitality POS solutions and real-time reporting and estate management via the Optomany Control Centre (OCC).
Our range of terminals: the S300, S800, and S900 offer the perfect fit for every type of hospitality business. Whether it’s countertop or mobile you want, these robust, easy-to-use devices all come with support for the P2PE standard, which could significantly reduce your PCI compliance overheads. Our latest, the A920, is a mobile tablet form factor for an even more effortless user experience.
Our innovative partners: on the Optomany stand we’ll have Point of Sale (POS) specialist Lolly and SPQ Retail joining us. We announced a partnership with Lolly just last month which will see axept® power a new LollyServe solution for the hospitality sector. The EPOS platform will provide business owners with an innovative self-serve offering to put customers in full control of the transactions they make. More importantly, it’s being offered at an entry-level price point to help level the playing field for smaller businesses looking to maximise sales through an improved payment experience.
We’re also delighted to be joined at the show by partner Pennies: which provides an innovative digital charity box service. It offers a fast, simple way for businesses to raise money for charities by offering customers an option to round-up or top-up on card purchases online, at the till and/or via their smart devices. Together, we’ve enabled countless businesses— from football clubs to high street retailers — put a bit back into their local communities via Pennies functionality.
We’ll be demoing just how simple it is to get started, along with all of our products and partnerships, on the stand. Do drop by to find out more on how Optomany can transform your hospitality business. See you there.
