GoTab’s Phone-Only POS Helps Restaurants Improve Business Operations and the Guest Experience

Jan 26, 2024

GoTab also recently launched its Pocket Sized POS to streamline table service. 1.25.2024 GoTab ’s new Phone Only POS (POP) fits in every pocket because it is just a phone (any phone, in fact) without the need for a card reader. Benefits include days of battery life, a beautiful OLED display on a compact device, and the ease of use surpassing all handheld solutions in the market (all at a price point that is a third of competing solutions). And of course, it wouldn’t be a POS if it couldn’t accept a card payment, so iOS and Android phones accept contactless (NFC) card payments simply by tapping a card on the back of the phone. Similar to a traditional card reader process, when guests are ready to checkout, the software will prompt users to add a tip before tapping their cards on the back of the device or utilizing the Apple Pay or Google Wallet function on any phone to process a payment. Unlike other platforms, tap-to-pay can all be done from the establishments’ mobile POS without a card reader. With GoTab, it has never been easier for operators and their teams to streamline the payment experience. “We believe the future of hospitality will involve many ways of interacting with ordering and payment, all to better suit team members and guests,” said Tim McLaughlin, Co-Founder & CEO at GoTab. “With the Phone Only POS we saw a need in the market for operators to be able to process payments without a card reader, allowing team members to quickly process payments from a pocket-size mobile device on-the-go. As hardware continues to rapidly evolve, we are dedicated to incorporating new platforms into GoTab’s innovative software capabilities and will continue to identify new ways to improve business operations and the guest experience.” GoTab’s flexible platform allows operators to run lean, profitable businesses while also providing customized and elevated guest experiences. Its solutions are driving increased transactions across merchants, with customers seeing average checks increase up to 35% and logging $83 in sales per hour of labor. The announcement proceeds the company’s recently announced $18 million Series A funding round that will help scale its digital ordering and payment solutions for the hospitality industry, as well as the company’s recent launch of its Pocket Sized POS to streamline table service, and recognition as one of the fastest-growing companies by Deloitte Technology Fast 500 .
