ARBA Retail Systems has announced the launch of a new mobile point of sale solution.
This new solution is the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 Tablet; the cafeteria version of the POS solution, ARBA CAFE, is a customised solution for corporate cafeterias, hospital cafeterias and school/college cafeterias. There is also a retail version which was designed for both single unit and chain stores.
“ARBA Retail Systems has been pioneering innovation in cafeteria management technology solutions since 1986. We have seen a rapid growth in the number of businesses embracing mobile/tablet based point of sale systems in the past few years,” said Kathy de la Torre, the Marketing Head of ARBA Retail Systems. “Mobility helps further speed throughput at the point of sale, while minimizing the hardware foot print. Corporate and hospitals can also enhance employee convenience at their cafeterias and increase cafeteria revenues by using the cashless payments feature. Cashier scans the existing employee badges and the meal charges are automatically recorded and deducted from the employee payroll, at the end of the month. Cashless payments are proven to speed check out time, and encourage employees to dine onsite rather than seek offsite alternatives. For automated payroll deductions, our Tablet PoS integrates seamlessly with industry leading ERP systems like SAP, Oracle, JDE, Kronos, ADP, Lawson, Meditech and many more.” added Kathy.
