Bar overview

Working in a bar environment requires you to be fast, efficient and responsive. Our software helps keep bar service running smoothly by allowing you to lay your screen out in the best possible configuration.

Bar tabs can also be used effectively to help speed service up further. You can use Idealpos' internal tabs or start using third-party options like Clipp and Tyro.  These will allow customers to open a temporary account which is then closed at the end of the night, or when the patron wants to leave the venue.

There are many different types of promotions that can be configured based on what you want to sell. The ability to offer a happy hour, jackpot and raffles can also help to improve your business.

Configurable POS Screen

Configurable POS Screen

Customise your screen as much as possible to allow for fast, efficienct service. The use of images on the buttons representing different products can make it easy for new staff who are not used to the products to identify quickly the item they are looking for.

Idealpos also allows the quick programming of the POS screen, even during the middle of a sale if required, to make sure you are able to get your system perfect in any situation.

Used in some of Australia's most highly-reviewed bars, we know our software can stand up to even the toughest critic while still allowing your customer to enjoy a cocktail or two.

No more walk-outs or insufficient funds. With Tyro’s BarTab function, customers pre-authorise their bar tab limit and hold onto their card. You can finalise the tab without seeing the card again and your customers are only charged for what they use. They won’t regret anything in the morning and neither will you.

Bar Tabs

Bar tabs allow you to give your customer freedom by purchasing items from the bar and finishing multiple transactions quickly, and then finalising the sale when they are ready to leave.

Bar tabs have many advantages over processing a sale for every transaction, the most beneficial of which is time saving. Less time processing transactions will mean more time serving customers. Most customers who open a bar tab will also have a higher spend rate, increasing your profitability.

Bar Tabs

Happy Hour

Easily create a Special Price Schedule, or multiples of, to give your customers specials throughout the day, which repeat each week for the week, a day or only an hour.

Limit which customers can receive the specials or which POS terminals to host the specials on.

Happy Hour

Stock Manage App

Idealpos utilises an iPhone app to allow you better management tools for the serious side of your business, stock control. With Stock Manage you are able to perform a stocktake on all your locations, transfer stock between locations, receive items into stock and assign barcodes to all items.

If required you can use a scanning device by Linea Pro which gives your phone extra functionality. This scanning device is not required, but it is if you want to scan all your items.

Stock Manage links directly to Idealpos and transfers data in a matter of seconds, allowing you to get on with the job you need to do.

Stock Exchange Interface

Customers love a gimmick, especially one that gives them a discount on their drinks. Or does it?

The Stock Exchange allows you set the prices fluctuations of certain items you want to sell with minimum and maximum selling values. As items are sold more than others, the price of the item increases while the items that are not selling so much decrease in price. You set the times the game goes for and even have the ability to 'crash' the market.

Stock Exchange Interface

Raffles & Jackpots

Raffles and Jackpots can give your customers additional purchase values that can make them enjoy your venue more.

Raffles allow you to sell tickets for various prize draws. This is usually common as a meat tray on a particular evening. You have the ability to link it with promotions so that bulk purchasing of tickets is less than if purchased individually. For example you might offer customers to "Buy 1 for $1 or 5 for $4".

Jackpots are a great way to record sales of a particular item for a promotion and offer a randomly selected winner at the conclusion or specific date. This type of function usually works best with customers linked to every sale to make it easy to identify the winner, otherwise each customer purchasing the item will need to keep their receipts.

Singular Customisation...

One advantage of Idealpos is being able to fully customise a single POS terminal to bar settings, while the other terminals in the restaurant are all configured towards food and table service.

The bar teminal can have default access to drinks and bar service functions, all the while still being able to access any food items they require on a separate tab, and access to the table map for complete customer management.

Additional feature info...

With a bar environment being in the hospitality industry, many features that are used in both restaurant and quick service can also be used in the bar to good effect.

Some of these features are Coupon Promotions, Customer Display, Customer Rewards and Kitchen Printing to name a few. With Idealpos' in-built Training Mode, you can easily see how a feature might be beneficial to use in your business using your very own data!

Idealpos helps our business to integrate multiple marketing, customer & loyalty program databases into a POS solution, whereby our customers can best be serviced with convenience. It's a stand-alone POS solution. Idealpos is exceptional, however it really stands out due to its scalability and the ease with which it can handle more complex demands.
