Hey this is Tim and I am here to tell you
about Bepoz Point of Sale for Cafeterias. If you’ve got one cafeteria or many cafeterias,
Bepoz can you help you centrally manage all of your cafeteria operations, employees, inventory
and much, much more. Let’s take a look at Bepoz. So we’re looking at the login screen
for Bepoz. Now, you can login any number of ways to Bepoz. I could use the number pad
and type in my number, I could use an employee card and swipe, I could use a fingerprint
and just touch it on there. In this case today, I’ll use the card swipe. There are many different
kinds of cafeteria operations that Bepoz could serve. It may be a standard retail cafeteria,
or this might be something like a corporate cafeteria where you have employee discounts,
you might have declining balances, you might have payroll deductions or you might have
meal plans, where people get a certain number of meals per day week or month. We will look
at a few of these in operation and the general cashier functions as well. So first, we’ll
do a standard cash transaction. So when we are ringing up in cafeteria, we’re presented
with a menu. Now this menu is completely configurable. You can lay it out however you would like.
And you can have modifiers that you would print to a kitchen. In traditional cafeterias
setting this isn’t necessary, but Bepoz does have the option of sending instructions to
a cook at several different places and it might be by printer or kitchen display. In
this case all of those options have been removed. So if I want to sell a cheeseburger, I ring
up a cheeseburger and a grill cheese. And if I wanted to sell some kind of alcohol,
like I’ve got a Becks here. I’m presented to scan the customers drivers license. And
I could actually scan the drivers license and save their data in the transaction log
so if I were to be audited by the liquor control board, I would have record. In this case,
I will override which also gets stored in the transaction journal. So I have total here.
My total is $17.05. I have fast tender keys down at the bottom. Which are completely configurable.
So if somebody gives me a cash amount of lets say $20. I can press $20. My receipt printer
prints and my cash drawer opens and there’s my change due. This is a very simple operation.
The next scenario we’ll look at is if you have employees with payroll deductions or declining
balances. So in that case many times your employees may have a badge they are issued
and that badge may have a barcode, a magnetic stripe, or a RFID card. In this particular
case, I’m using an RFID badge and I can just touch that to the proximity reader. And that
will automatically pull up the account for the employee. Now employee discounts automatically
apply because this is an employee and I can either do payroll deductions, declining balances
or meal plans based on whatever that employee has setup. So we’ll ring up a cheeseburger
and a grilled cheese and the same thing that we rang up last time. We’ll ring up a Becks.
Now if I have discounts applied, they automatically apply. But I can now take this, in this case
I have this employee set up with a declining balance, but Payroll deduction is the same
thing. A payroll deduction just takes the dollars that were spent and exports out to
your payroll service. And we can do that on an automated basis or more manual export basis
depending on how you would like that done. So we’ll take the payment as an account charge.
Now many times in the corporate cafeteria environment there might be interdepartmental
charges. Lets say the marketing department is bringing some important guests down to
the cafeteria and their just going to pay for those guests meals on a departmental charge.
I could then look up those departments either by a name or by a number or by looking them
up on a list. So I pick the department and then I now have their account balance and
can ring up whatever it is that I am going to ring up for that customer. And then charge
that on the account and then those interdepartmental charges can be automatically sent to the accounting
department. Another situation that you might run into is you want to give a free meal to
somebody, or a discounted meal to somebody and this might be for volunteers for people
who’ve just done a good job, it might be an employee perk, it could be all sorts of different
methods. One of the ways that you can give that to the person would be a gift card. Another
way is I could just print a receipt with a barcode on it. So in this case this barcode
is good for $6 toward any sandwich or burger in the restaurant. I can ring up a cheeseburger
and I’ll have a fountain soda with it and if I scan the barcode the discount will automatically
apply. So had a $7.25 burger and a $6 voucher. So it left a $1.25 and they got a mountain
dew for $2.75, so my total balance is $4.00, but the $6.00 voucher completely applied.
So I can take a payment on that. Now the next question is going to be, what happens to the
voucher if the person comes in and tries to buy another cheeseburger with it? So, I have
the same cheeseburger rung up, and I scan the barcode and the system tells me that this
voucher has been fully redeemed. This voucher is unique and it could have had an expiration
date. Let’s say I give it a 2 week expiration, and if they don’t come in within 2 weeks,
the voucher is no longer valid. So let’s look at a plan where you might have an executive
or an employee or somebody that has a certain number of meals available per day, week or
month. In this case, I have the same RFID badge, again it could be barcoded or magnetic
stripe, but I have a RFID badge which I pull up the employee and if I ring up an cheeseburger
for the person, the system prompts and says you have a valid voucher for this meal. Now
in the case this person has a meal plan that includes 31 meals for the month and I can
redeem the meal. And now the balance is zero dollars because I got a free meal. If I had
included let’s say Becks on the transaction, that would not come off because the voucher
is only valid for meals and not for alcohol in this particular case that’s the rule for
the way this applies. So they are going to pay off the difference. So now if I pull up that
person’s meal plan, I can see that they have a 31 meal per month plan and they have 30
meals unclaimed. So I can check how many meals are still left on their plan. That’s it for
our short presentation of Bepoz Point of Sale for Cafeterias. Of course there’s way more
features than we could possibly present in this short presentation. If you have questions,
call us today, we’ll be happy to answer them.
