New app versions offer advanced functionality for caterers, dry cleaners, hotels and other businesses that need flexible billing options
DULUTH, Ga., 2016-May-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — Users of NCR Silver and NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition have significantly more flexible billing options, thanks to the latest point-of-sale (POS) app releases.
The main NCR Silver app allows service-oriented businesses – like caterers, embroiderers, specialty retailers and dry cleaners – to take future orders. With this new functionality, customers can schedule their service or pick-up date for a later time and the POS system will automatically track it. This helps businesses offer more seamless service.
Another new NCR Silver feature is ticket notes.
Heavily requested by users, and tied into the new future order functionality, merchants can now store transaction notes such as customer info and special requests like gift-wrapping. This info can be printed or emailed on receipts and further helps businesses deliver special requests with ease.
NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition
The NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition app offers merchants the ability to charge “house account” customers on the date of sale and bill them later. Merchants can export this data and send statements to customers for easy invoicing.
Both features are tied into reporting, allowing for easy end-of-shift reporting with no discrepancies.
Another new NCR Silver Pro Restaurant Edition feature is item availability.
Users can now see quantity on hand at the transaction, which prevents certain products from being ordered and alerts employees when select inventory is “86’d”. This feature helps businesses minimize errors and increases efficiency at the point of sale.
“Small business owners and franchise operators need greater visibility into things like inventory and customer preferences so they can better engage consumers across multiple channels,” said Chris Poelma, president and general manager of NCR Small Business. “These features help businesses operate more efficiently and improve the overall experience consumers have.”
