New Year, same pandemic.
A New Year always means lots of new things: new goals, new opportunities, new friends… Unfortunately, this New Year also means a new variant of Covid, Omicron, which is now becoming a household name. The pandemic has been accelerating, and there is no sign of the virus ever going away. A pandemic brings with it a lot of negativity: Businesses are struggling to operate due to either the labor shortage or strict regulations. Friends and family can’t gather and socialize as they please. Table Tap enables businesses to stay afloat and gives people the opportunity to safely come together.
Safety, Security, and Self Pour
The solution is self-serve. The concept of self-pour is also becoming well-known throughout It’s important that each one of us stays safe. Self-pour allows businesses and patrons to unite in a way that is enjoyable but also covid-friendly. We want to provide an experience for your staff and customers that are reliable as times continue to change. We want to bring family, friends, and businesses back together through self-pour.
Pour it yourself for the most unique experience.
Table Tap gives people the ability to go out and control their own experience. Through a self-pour system, there are significantly fewer touchpoints between staff and patrons. Instead of a server bringing a customer another beverage or that customer having to wait on a bartender to pour them a beverage, the customer can simply replenish their own beverage as they need. A self-pour system also promotes social distancing.
Crowded lines of people waiting around a bar area for a single bartender to pump out drinks should be a thing of the past. With a self-pour wall, customers don’t have to go through the stress of elbowing their way up to that sliver of open space at the bar. The convenience, ease, and dare we say intimacy of pouring your own beer is unmatched.
OrderTab and QR codes for completely contactless check out.
Table Tap brings the minimization of touchpoints to another level through its QR-code-based ordering system, OrderTab. We specifically designed this platform during the pandemic. By placing QR codes throughout a venue, customers are able to order drinks and food through the code which is unique to each table. Therefore, allowing direct orders from their phones that get sent directly to the kitchen or bar. To further use the QR code to benefit the restaurant and patron, Table Tap integrates credit card payment within the system. The customer can then drop their RFID card in a bucket on the way out for a completely contactless checkout.
Customer Service that is second to none again.
While the pandemic has caused shortages for a lot of items, there has become a surplus of “Sorry, we’re short-staffed” signs posted on storefronts. According to the National Restaurant Association, 78% of restaurant operators do not have enough staff needed to service their current demand. An undermanned staff leads to inefficient service, unhappy customers, or even the inability to open. A self-pour system will become your most dependable and efficient employee.
No matter if ¾ of your staff is quarantined or you can’t find someone willing to tend the bar, your customers will always be able to receive a beverage in a timely manner. Those employees who used to be designated bartenders can come out from behind the bar to increase customer service or they can be used to pick up slack in other areas of the operations.
Other solutions to stay Safe during the Pandemic.
Of course, in addition to a self-pour system, there are other measures that restaurant owners and patrons can take to ensure a safe experience. Spacing tables out within the venue, placing hand sanitizer near the tap wall, and employees and customers wearing masks when applicable are all great ideas. The pandemic will continue to challenge us. But, it is important to adjust together. People want their social lives back and deserve the opportunity to visit their favorite restaurant or bar. Business owners must try to meet this demand while operating on a lean staff and staying socially responsible. Self-pour and Table Tap are means by which they can do both.
