With a client list that ranges from the up-and-coming hotspots to the well established – which includes: Eddie Rockets, Chopped, Irish Ferries, KC Peaches, Dublin Pizza Company, Jump Juice Bars, Neat Pizza, Hillbilly’s, Ramen Thai, Romayo’s and many more – Captiva continues to innovate and add more integrated cloud services to its core POS business.

Captiva’s innovation bringing software as a service (SAAS) to the hospitality EPOS market is well documented. Building on this solid technology has enabled Captiva now to offer the latest in social distancing and contactless order processing.

What is this and how does it work? Captiva POS has introduced new contactless ordering for table-service restaurants; click-and-collect for quick-service restaurants; and integrated delivery services, for its EPOS system.

Restaurants can now provide their customers with contactless ordering from the table without the hassle of downloading an app. Customers simply order and pay directly from their own phone, with the completed order printing directly to the kitchen. Waitstaff have the option to place orders, and monitor tables and completed orders.

What does all this mean for a restaurant, bar, retail or quick-service outlet? An outlet can select a Captiva point of sale system with a ‘pay as you go’ service. This yields a fantastic end result for the outlet or quick-service site and keeps initial set-up costs low.

Outlets can pick and choose from Contactless Ordering, Cloud Storage, Integrated Online Ordering from multiple providers, Integrated Credit and Debit Cards, Cloud Customer Accounts, Stored Value Cards, Cloud Reporting, CRM, SMS Marketing, Captiva API and Cloud Loyalty.

Captiva clients get a real-time reporting app which includes a full dashboard of relevant KPIs. This can be drilled down to display access specific reports, ie owner-level reports to manager access. This is accessed through multiple devices including phones to tablets and iPads.

Captiva has automated marketing features which can be utilised via text messaging or email marketing. The cloud service will keep track of the restaurant’s customer activity and trigger pre-set marketing rules to send out relevant offers and vouchers. This will free up time and save money, allowing the owner/manager to concentrate on running the restaurant.

Captiva also facilitates integration of online ordering from third-party aggregator including Just Eat. This means that online orders are channelled directly into Captiva POS without the need for double entry, which saves money, speeds up the order process and cuts out mistakes.

Cloud loyalty

Captiva provides a fully integrated Cloud Loyalty service that encourages loyalty in your customers. Cloud Loyalty can be used as a traditional card or via our White Label App. Customers can avail of loyalty cash or stamp offers, ie, buy five salads and get one free. All loyalty points can be accumulated on the app, with no need for cards.

Because Captiva Loyalty is in the cloud, this allows for single-site, multi-site or franchise sites to set up offers and deploy to store. The restaurant can use a suite of automated marketing solutions to keep in contact with its customers.
