CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leaf, creators of the world’s first tablet specifically designed for commerce, today announced Leaf for Quick Serve to provide solutions for common challenges in the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry that make it easier for owners to run and grow their business. Leaf for Quick Serve gives restaurant owners a cost-effective alternative to legacy cash registers with a tablet that increases visibility into their business through sophisticated, user-friendly analytics and an improved customer experience.
"At lunchtime we can serve over 200 people in about an hour with the Leaf system. We need to be able to take orders and process credit cards as fast as possible to get people in and out. Leaf has been an easy to use, customizable, and quick solution for us,” said Anthony Miller, owner of Squeaky Beaker Cafe in Cambridge, Mass. “The customer service and relationship with Leaf has been outstanding. The online suite has allowed me to easily check transactions, trends in sales, ratings from our customers, and it integrates directly into my accounting software. It has saved me time and has allowed me to spend more time doing what I enjoy - relating to and serving our guests."
Running on Leaf’s built-for-business POS tablet, the LeafPresenter, which already includes features such as modifiers, printer routing, kitchen notes, check splitting by item or amount, consumer ratings and text-based receipts, Leaf for Quick Serve introduces brand new functionality built specifically for QSRs, such as:
- Support for Take-Out and Delivery: Built-in customer look-up functionality allows QSRs to save customer preferences and delivery addresses that can be looked-up by phone number
- Clock In/Clock Out: The LeafPresenter can now double as an employee time-keeper to track employee data and strengthen its business analytics
- Email and Text Receipts: Along with a sleek new user interface for the checkout screen, customers now have the option to receive their receipt via text or email
- Custom or Default Tips: further enhancing the consumer facing checkout experience, merchants can now set a default tip amount or let customers choose an amount after swiping a card and signing with their finger
“The growth of the quick service market continues to outpace the rest of the industry, and these restaurants have a unique set of drivers that will determine their success,” said Aron Schwarzkopf, CEO of Leaf. “At a bare minimum, they must be fast, efficient, inspire loyalty and be able to adapt at a moment’s notice. Leaf for Quick Serve enables restaurateurs to cost-effectively make strides in all of these areas directly from the point of sale. We give them a radically simple way to make informed decisions that guide their business and engage their customers.”
