Guest Check Floating

Guest Check Floating, Floating Clerks, Floating PLUs

Guest Check Floating, Floating Clerks, Floating PLUs??  So, what is the deal with point of sale systems and the “floating functions” folks keep talking about?

Well, floating just means that all POS systems in a network have real-time access to certain information.  They can share guest checks in restaurants, open receipts, and new PLUs/articles.  This grants you substantial flexibility in how you run your operation.

Here are the specifics…

Let’s begin with Floating Tables…

This is also known as Guest Check Floating, which allows POS terminals to automatically transfer all customer sales data to all other POS terminal in your network – basically different locations such as tables, bar, or terrace.  There’s no need for staff to return to the same POS terminal or even open up a new sales ticket every time a customer moves from table to terrace.

Then we have Floating Clerks…

This feature really consists of 2 parts known as Smooth Terminal Change and Smooth Operator Change. It ensure automatic clerk change and transfer of all active sales data per customer at any POS terminal in your network.  Yep, you heard right.  In a bakery, for example, it facilitates direct POS access at all the different service areas such as bread sales, cake sections, and my favorite –  the delectable goodies area.  Staff continues serving clients simultaneously without interruption at any terminal. They simply swap to their open receipts at a touch of a button or a magnetic key.  Pretty cool, huh?

Lastly, there are Floating PLUs

Newly created/changed sales items, also known as PLUs, automatically pass from one POS terminal to all the others you have networked locally.  The clerk only needs to add it once.

Now that’s what I call efficient!

…and BTW, all these “floating functions” work with QUORiON cash registers and POS systems.  All you really need is a LAN interface to network your POS terminals.
