Benefits of using PowerPos

Bill subtotal with multiple currencies

It's illegal to accept foreign currency as a tender for a restaurant bill but you can easily inform your foreign guest just how much his meal cost in a currency he can relate to. A group of visitors are likely to come back if they feel that they received good value-for-money.

Up to 12 lines of foreign text

Unlike some overseas countries, we usually don't include a service charge on the bill (unless it's for a large table of 10 or more). Now you can tell your customer, in their home language, that a service charge is not included in the bill total.

Variable tip percentage with prompt

Servers in most Asian countries do not expect a tip (although China is now edging towards 3% as the norm) whereas in Europe and South Pacific 10% is the standard tip and in the USA you can usually expect to tip anything from 15% to 20% of the bill total.

The PowerTill tipping guide not only informs your customer of the standard tipping rates in South Africa it also reminds your waiter that good/excellent service will usually be rewarded with a bigger tip.
