From the Suggestion Box 9/25

by: on September 25, 2015  |   (Leave a reply)

Who’s ready for another exciting edition of From the Suggestion Box?

Here are today’s goodies:

  • Almond Milk – good idea, I’ll consider it.
  • Three requests to add tipping to the cafe register so folks without cash can tip on a card.
    • I wish that I could do this, I really do.  Our POS is not designed for a cafe though, it’s designed for retail and therefore doesn’t support tipping.  Trust me, I’ve tried to make this a feature request with the company.  What they did, though was add a whole additional product for restaurants and we’d have to buy and use that to add tipping.  The systems aren’t compatible though and wouldn’t work for us.
    • The good news is that we are getting a new credit card system because of the new chip requirements.  It’s possible that the new system will support tipping.  I’ll keep you posted.

Keep ’em coming!  I really appreciate your input and ideas!!
