Breadcrumb has unveiled an upgrade to its iPad POS for restaurants, bars and cafes. Breadcrumb 1.2 makes daily operation faster and easier for servers, bartenders and managers, boasting features shaped by conversations with hundreds of merchants and insights from millions of restaurant, bar and café transactions, according to a company press release.
Unlike users of outdated POS systems saddled with infrequent, costly and complex updates, customers using Breadcrumb’s POS benefit from free, frequent and seamless upgrades, said Seth Harris, founder, Breadcrumb.
“Every day, thousands of customers get their food or beverages quickly and seamlessly thanks to Breadcrumb. Each order is an opportunity for us to learn and evolve,” Harris said. “Breadcrumb 1.2 was driven by our merchants’ real world experiences, and it offers a faster and easier dining experience for them and their customers.”
Highlights of Breadcrumb 1.2 include:
- Smart swipe: Swiping a credit card automatically opens a tab in the cardholder’s name, recalls an open tab or processes payment — without having to type in more information or navigate extra steps;
- Quicker PIN-based access to terminals with fewer keystrokes;
- Simpler process for complex charges: Breadcrumb makes it easy to split a balance evenly across a number of cards or across a combination of cash and cards; and
- Rapid order entry, including new single-touch order modifications for customizations, such as cooking temperature.
Breadcrumb is a division of Groupon.
