Tablet ordering for coffee shops

Coffee Shop Manager™ (CSM) (a Granbury Restaurant Solutions product) today announced that the company’s latest software is now available with the HP Slate 2 tablet PC. The new release promises to improve the point of sale options for specialty coffee retailers, with features including an integrated card reader, an optional bar code scanner, and built-in payment processing from Mercury Payment Systems®.

“Coffee Shop Manager has some distinct advantages with the Slate 2,” said Lee Alexander, specialty coffee director of sales and marketing at GRS. “It allows merchants to improve the efficiency of the checkout process, engage customers, and offer them more personalized service.”

In addition to being able to go directly to the customer to take orders and payments wherever they are in the retail location, merchants can also dock a cash drawer to the Slate 2. “With integrated payment processing from Mercury, CSM for the Slate 2 is much more than just an ordering station. It gives the specialty coffee retailer full access to our coffee focused POS product,” Alexander said.

Combined with Mercury’s reliable, secure transactions, Slate 2 with CSM streamlines payments for the busiest merchants. Mercury also offers free, 24/7 customer support, free gift card transactions, access to customized online transaction reports, and continuous processing in the event of a network outage.

“Together, Mercury and CSM for the Slate 2 provide a turnkey package that makes it easier and more efficient for merchants to take credit, debit and gift card payments,” said Jon Decker, channel development manager at Mercury.
