Table Tap’s 6 Effective Tab Types
Not every customer is the same. Some customers will be locals who frequently use your self-pour establishment, while others may be out-of-towners who are just visiting. Some customers use cash while others may use a credit card. With such a variance in your clients, it is important to offer multiple tab types. Table Tap’s technology is the only system that can handle 6 different tab types through payment and accessibility.
Underage for all
With non-alcoholic draft beverages on the rise, Table Tap has put an emphasis on self-pour for all. Even kids! By simply switching a toggle on the screen, our system will allow an RFID card to only access taps with non-alcohol beverages. If that same card is used on an alcoholic tap, the system will say “Tap Off”. No other system on the market has the ability to create underage cards and allow underage patrons to access kombucha, cold brew, or other non-alcoholic beverages. This also works great for sober guests who still want to be a part of the action! Every one of your customers will have an enjoyable time while they are in your establishment.
21 and Over taps
This type is just your typical beer wall tab. This will allow access to all of the beer walls including the non-alcoholic taps. We want to help you create a great experience for every customer that walks into your establishment. Legal patrons can drink anything on tap including red, and white wine. Check out our blog on self-pour wine. Nowadays we have draft Manhattans, Cosmopolitans, and all the classics can be featured on your taps
A pre-paid type that like its name suggests, is pre-paid. A customer would be able to pre-load their card via cash or credit with funds. These funds are only good for the day they are uploaded, and the balance does not travel from day to day. Pre-paid cards are great for someone visiting who wants to limit their total spending or a client who only has cash with no way of pre-authorizing a credit card. This is Table Tap’s least used tab type.
A post-pay type is like your typical bar tab. Table Tap’s system will pre-authorize a credit card directly to a tab and will allow the customer to freely pour without a credit limit. As they pour, they will see their totals on the screen, and they will see them rise in real-time. These tabs are great for your average customer who may visit a few times but is not ready to become a member. This is Table Tap’s most popular tab type.
It allows for express check-out as customers can just drop their card in a box or bucket and our operators will add an automatic gratuity. If the customer doesn’t want to tip or wants to close out with cash, that is no problem. They just need to go to one of our activation stations and finalize their tab.
The final tab type is a Member tab. A member tab is a tab with a pre-paid balance that travels from day to day. Our system stores members’ emails, birthdates, names, and other information and allows members to have a frictionless check-in process. Members can link their card with our custom-skinned mobile app, MemberTab, and they can track their pours, link it with their Untappd account, add money to their card, and more.
With MemberTab, customers can also receive special incentives whether it be 5 percent off the beer wall on Mondays or 10 percent off their whole tab every day of the week. Member tabs are great for your locals and frequent customers. They are also a great way to get revenue in your pocket before you even open. Some of our clients have funded their entire beer wall before even opening by pushing member tabs and having a great member program to go along with it.
As you can see, our system goes above and beyond the competition. Why settle for only have one type of tab when you can have multiple with Table Tap? Contact us today so we can help your establishment incorporate self-pour in the best way possible.
