Because we recently have had so many customers ask about ways to eliminate credit card fees, we thought this might be worth repeating!

Finding ways to save money in your business can be a real challenge.

One of the methods Skurla’s has in it’s toolbox is surcharging or non-cash adjustment (NCA for short). It is a simple way of passing on (or sharing) the costs of credit card processing to customers  who don’t want to pay cash. Our point of sale system can automatically add a fee of  up to 3.99% to all card based transactions. The end result is that a majority of your credit card fees are eliminated or drastically reduced.

Well then, you ask, how much can surcharging/NCA save me?

The answer: Take your current monthly credit card fees - multiply that by 12. That’s your yearly savings! 🤣

But seriously, while NCA can’t always remove ALL of your fees, it can reduce the majority of them.  Even more if you are a business that doesn’t take tips. Couple that with a free, feature rich POS, and you may just be laughing all the way to bank.

Staff Shortage Still? - Here is How Your Point of Sale System Can Help

Everywhere we turn, it seems like restaurants are still struggling to find employees.  We are hearing stories of having to reduce hours, postpone openings, closing on days they don't have enough employees to run the business, etc.  Here are some helpful hints!

Between COVID concerns and staff shortages, restaurateurs are really having to work extra hard these days to keep their doors open.

Below are some ideas to help reduce staffing needs, save time, and lower costs.

Use your point of sale for order taking and cashiering - with dine-in, online ordering, pay at the table web menus, and other time saving features.

Let's take a closer look at dine-in, as an example:

The customer simply scans a QR code on the table, places and pays for their order on their phone - eliminating the need for a dedicated server to attend to that table.  

The same goes for online ordering - the customer places the order, freeing up staff from answering phones and entering orders into the point of sale system.

With pay at the table, you can reduce staff at cashier or hostess payment stations, freeing these employees for other tasks.

Use integrated web menus - place QR codes in key locations - the windows, on tables, or anywhere a customer is waiting.  And don't forget to place a link on your website and Facebook pages.  Using a web menu saves time and money - no need to print pages and pages of menus, reduce staff time bringing menus to the tables, etc.

Why EdgeServ POS

Feb 18, 2020 4:30:36 PM / by Lynn Skurla Perkins posted in Restaurant Point of Sale, EdgeServ POS

We partnered with EdgeServ POS, because of the opportunity to control our destiny. The industry is rampant with consolidations and mergers.  Every time one of our product lines is bought, sold, merged or whatever, we (and our customers) are turned upside down – new rules and new players, often making it difficult for how we sell or support the products – this is not the business model we want to offer to our customers.
