Monopolising ePOS: Comprehensive & Efficient

In the fast-paced world of business, a fantastic ePOS system will allow you to stay ahead of the game. It’ll help maintain customers, encourage repeat business, and make your business more efficient. A cutting-edge Electronic Point of Sale (ePOS) system can be the catalyst for accelerated growth, and our feature-rich solution, available at a fixed rate, from £41.99 per month with no hidden charges, is designed to be your business ally.

Let’s explore how this robust ePOS system can be and how it can propel your business to new heights.

1. Loyalty Scheme: Fostering Customer Devotion

Building lasting relationships with customers is at the core of any successful business. Our ePOS system comes equipped with a versatile loyalty scheme that empowers you to reward and retain your valued customers. Whether through exclusive discounts, personalised offers, or free items after a certain number of purchases, the loyalty scheme becomes a powerful tool for customer retention and brand advocacy. Our loyalty system is for all orders, including table ordering, delivery, or collection of food and drink.

2. Stock Control: Real-Time Inventory Management

Efficient stock control is essential for preventing stockouts and ensuring you always have the right products available. Our ePOS system provides real-time updates on inventory levels, allowing you to make informed decisions about restocking and minimising the risk of overstocking. This feature not only saves time but also helps in optimising your supply chain, reducing costs, and enhancing overall operational efficiency. Our system will also alert you when your stock is low and create a purchase order, saving you time in counting stock to get the inevitable, same result.

3. Table Ordering: Enhancing Customer Experience

For businesses in the hospitality industry, our ePOS system goes beyond the traditional point of sale. The table ordering feature allows customers to place orders directly from their tables, improving efficiency for both customers and staff. This streamlined process not only enhances the overall dining experience but also contributes to faster table turnover, increasing your restaurant’s capacity and revenue potential.

4. Collection/Delivery: Seamless Order Fulfillment

In the era of online ordering, our ePOS system seamlessly integrates collection and delivery services. Manage orders efficiently, keep track of delivery times, and provide customers with a smooth experience. The system ensures accurate order processing, reduces errors, and enhances customer satisfaction.

5. Special Deals and Promotions: Boosting Sales

Create excitement and drive sales with our ePOS system’s special deals and promotions feature. Easily set up and manage discounts, bundle offers, or time-limited promotions to attract new customers and encourage repeat business. The flexibility of this feature allows you to adapt your marketing strategy to changing market conditions. Our ePOS system makes it easy to create and manage promo codes and/or vouchers, allowing you to track the success of your promotions and adjust your marketing strategy accordingly. Stop wasting money on advertising and marketing that isn’t working, and quick!

6. Pre-Booking: Convenience for Your Customers

The ability to pre-book orders adds an extra layer of convenience for your customers. Whether for busy lunch hours or special events, our ePOS system allows customers to schedule and pre-pay for their orders, reducing wait times and ensuring a smooth transaction process. Pre-orders can be for table ordering, collection, and delivery.

7. Full Reporting: In-Depth Insights for Informed Decisions

Make data-driven decisions with our comprehensive reporting feature. Gain insights into best-selling items, identify non-performing products, and monitor stock levels effectively. The staff manager feature also provides transparency into order responsibilities, helping you track performance and ensure accountability.

8. Customer Accountability: Less complaints

Through the traditional ”take an order over the phone” scenario, we’ve all been there, whether you are the customer (I didn’t get my order) or the business owner (The customer didn’t order the food). Ultimately, as the owner of the business, whether you know the customer didn’t order or not, you have a choice.

1) Accept that the customer is wrong, but give them the food at our own expense
or
2) Stick to your guns, knowing you are correct, but risk reputational damage (regardless of whether you are actually at fault or not).

If customers book through your app/online ordering system, it will clearly show what the customer ACTUALLY ordered, and will subsequently result in fewer complaints. It will show that the customer is correct (or incorrect) and will result in you not wasting your time and/or money in replacing meals that weren’t your fault.

Final Thought:

There are many ePOS systems out there. Some are cheaper than others, simply because they’re not particularly comprehensive (some business owners don’t need all the additional things), and some will appear cheap until you want to do anything, and then the fees suddenly start piling up. With our ePOS system, it is a fixed amount, every month. There are no hidden fees, no additional costs, and a set amount, with no surprises. A good ePOS system is the backbone of your business.

For around £50 per month, our ePOS system is not just a transaction; it’s a strategic move towards accelerating your business. With features ranging from loyalty schemes to detailed reporting, our ePOS system is designed to enhance efficiency, boost customer satisfaction, and ultimately drive growth. Empower your business with the tools it deserves, and watch as it rises to new heights in the competitive market.

Getting Your Commercial Energy Quote – just got easier!

We are here to help make things easier for your business, more efficient, and hopefully more cost-effective too!

Energy, both Gas and Electric is unfortunately something most of us need to run our business in some way.

We now have our own exclusive quoting tool to make sure that you are quoted fairly and to ensure that we can quote as accurately as possible.

Monopolising uses live data points so that when the correct MPAN and/or MPRN numbers are used, the guesswork is taken out of the equation.

This enables us to not only quote you correctly, but it also reduces the chances of any clawbacks from energy companies or any nasty surprises because the energy company suddenly hiked their prices due to you using less than you had predicted.

If it is your first time in your premises, then we will use what the previous tenants used over the past 12 months, failing that, you can use industry-standard averages to try and make sure you get the fairest deal.

Gas and Electric, regardless of who you are with, is the same quality, so why pay more? At Monopolising, you’ll get your own dedicated account manager to help you through any difficult times or to help answer any questions you may have.
