I would like to talk about how customers are utilising the ERP orsoftware in any café.

  Customers arealready accessing credit card bills with their fingers on touchscreens and utilisingapplication to order at fast-food restaurants. But then, those are just the initialstage. There are few productive implementations on technology to attract morecustomers.§  Firstly, TabletRestaurant Management, which was created by a team ofrestaurateurs turned out to be productive. This iPad app provides real-timeviews of tables, catalogues the menu by a selection’s name or ingredients,sales and delivery tickets and sends queries or orders to the kitchen which isflexible. I am suggesting this because, if Dyo art café implements such anidea, then this could be one of the ways where they could attract customers.§  NFC, or near-field communication, is a way to make paymentusing a smartphone via wireless connection that uses radio waves. The main productivityof it is to reduce time which is consolidated to less amount and low securityrisks.

§  Customer data is like keeping track of customer transactionsin a coffee shop which allows you to offer loyalty card schemes. For e.g.: if acustomer regularly buys an expresso, but occasionally gets a more expensive drink, the system would let youknow to offer an expensive drink at a slight discount. That’s how customers getattracted and gets to become a regular customer.

§  Coffee ShopManager is a point of sale software (POS) for exclusive coffee shops. It is themost demanded software for any café shops. You have access to track hours, createa customer relationship bond with employees, sell retail items using a barcodescanner and perform multi tasks that will help your café run productively andsmoothly.
