5 Ways a Custom Interface Can Transform Your Nightclub POS
As a nightclub owner, you know your primary customer base is millennials (those who reached young adulthood between the years of 2000 and the present). When they are choosing a nightclub, this is a generation looking for something flashy, high-tech, and visually stimulating. So why use an outdated nightclub POS system and old-school techniques of ID checking, liquor control, and inventory management? You could be using a custom interface for your nightclub POS that does all that for you and much more. Here are just five ways a custom interface can transform your nightclub POS system.
1. Age Verification Integration
Gone are the days of waiting in line while your staff checks an ID with a flashlight, looking for a watermark to determine it’s not a fake. You can customize your nightclub POS interface to integrate with age verification software. This can prevent costly fines and the risk of losing your liquor license by serving alcohol to an underage patron.
2. Inventory Management
During a busy weekend shift, Nightclub bartenders often don’t have the time to keep track of the inventory while working. With the right nightclub POS, you can customize your nightclub POS interface to automatically keep track of inventory as the bartender processes sales. This way, the bartender knows when to request an employee to stock the coolers or to request a new bottle that is about to be empty.
Sophisticated nightclub POS systems have the ability to measure and monitor the flow of draft pours. Additionally, barcode scanning technology and scale systems can accurately measure liquor pours from one shift to the next.
Sales reports from the interface will also give a hint as to which product is selling the most and at what times. This will help you keep your bar stocked at busy times with products that are selling the most as well as prevent you from running short on products by under-ordering from your supplier. There are even inventory tracking modules available that can be customized to automatically re-order supplies once they’ve reached a certain level.
3. Liquor Control Integration
Another way to put your nightclub in jeopardy is to over-serve a patron. Allowing someone to get too drunk can lead to many unfortunate outcomes. You can customize your nightclub POS interface to keep a history of the drinks for each person as well as the times they were served. This can prevent someone from purposely hopping back and forth between multiple bartenders, hoping they won’t notice how much he or she is drinking.
4. Payroll Integration
Integrating your nightclub POS system with the payroll system can have many benefits. Bartenders can punch in and out right on the interface, view the schedule to see when they work next or who is coming in for the next shift, and keep track of credit card tips to see how well they are doing for the night. This integration can also keep a history of who was working on which night so if there is some sort of inquiry (such as a discrepancy in inventory) those who may be responsible can be easily identified.
5. VIP Reservation Management
Keeping track of VIP table or room reservations can be difficult to manage while also managing the bar. Having a nightclub POS system interface that is customized to keep record of this can save time and labor costs. Patrons can even make reservations online and have them be updated in real-time on the interface. Patrons already in the bar can make reservations for the night and/or for future dates and the bartender can place those reservations and process the payments right on the screen.
Much time, energy, and labor can be saved using a customized nightclub POS system. Risks associated with the business of owning a nightclub can be reduced as well, and you can impress your patrons by showing that you are efficient and high-tech. Making sure your custom interface for your nightclub POS system has these five features can make your nightclub the place to be.
