Halloween Is Here! 4 Ways to Prepare Your Business

Don’t miss out on the chance to increase your revenues. Prepare your business for the spookiest time of the year by doing these 4 things.

1. Process those orders as quickly and seamlessly as possible

Prepare yourself with an uptake in customers by having the right tech in place to process orders and payments as seamlessly as possible. If you typically struggle during busy times and having to serve large groups of customers during special events our EPOS systems, which can be used on both our fixed and portable devices, is just what you need. Orders that are placed can be sent straight through to the back office. This means wait staff doesn’t have to rush back and forth between customers and the kitchen. In addition, wait staff can easily and efficiently take down orders by way of picture menus. This means no jotting down illegible orders that the chef has to waste time deciphering or having to waste time scrolling through text to take the order. Our devices allow for clear and colourful graphics to identify dishes and food products.

2. Make sure your loyalty offerings are ready

So, you’ve adjusted your menu. Now comes the month of being able to offer discounts on those Halloween cupcakes or spooky decorated cookies. Or, allowing the chance for customers to redeem their free pumpkin whipped coffee or a free pumpkin latte, or a free witches brew iced coffee. Whatever your campaign and product offerings if you’ve signed up to motto you know how simple it is for your customers to be able to redeem their loyalty offerings. No lengthy sign-up, no loyalty stamp cards, no time wasted. Just tap, redeem and go. It’s as simple as that.

Having a strong reporting system is essential for any business. With motto you can easily manage your VAT costs, see just how much your revenue has increased and what are your top-selling products.
