Frequently Asked Questions

Is GoTab an eatertainment POS system?

Yes. GoTab offers a POS with specific features that make running an eatertainment business more efficient and worry-free. Uniquely designed for large, complex eatertainment venues, our POS is the first system that places the guest (not the tech) at the center of the experience. That means guests get to order, reorder and pay all through their phone without having to download an app. But our system goes a step further to provide all of the most important features of a POS, with the added benefit of interacting seamlessly with mobile orders. For eatertainment venues, we offer features like a shared cart across all merchants for one-payment checkout, automatic merchant payouts and percent rent structures for owners, to name a few.

Can GoTab integrate with our existing systems at our eatertainment venue?

Absolutely. GoTab's cloud-based platform and open API mean it’s designed for easy integration with your current systems, including point of sale (POS) systems and membership reservations. This ensures a smooth transition and minimizes disruptions to your operations.

How do Eatertainment mobile payments work with GoTab?

Eatertainment mobile payments in GoTab work the same as general GoTab mobile payments orders. Guests simply open a tab using their credit or debit card. Guests can easily add to their tab throughout their visit at your venue. Then, when they’re ready to leave, guests can simply close out their tab and walk out; no need to wait in line or flag down a server. And if they forget to close out their tab, tabs can be automatically closed by GoTab at the operator’s designated local time. GoTab Pass also supports RFID cards and bracelets so guests have even greater control of their experience by, for example, setting spending limits, issuing connected cards to minors and others in their party. What are the benefits of using a Kitchen Display System (KDS) in eatertainment venues? Instead of handling manual tickets in the kitchen, the eatertainment venue’s KDS allows the kitchen to efficiently manage order fulfillment, providing complete transparency and visibility into the timing and accuracy of the orders. The kitchen displays can be customized to each merchant’s unique operation. With GoTab for eatertainment you can streamline merchant’s kitchen operations, communicate via two-way text with guests, 86’ items directly from the KDS and much more.

Does GoTab offer handheld technology that my eatertainment venue can use?

The GoTab Pocket POS works the same as a stationery POS system. Servers using the GoTab handheld POS can 86 items, rush and delay orders, adjust stock levels, process credit card and debit payments and more. And because the handheld POS is sized to be carried easily to any location on venue, your staff get the ultimate flexibility to address guests’ needs in the moment, without having to jot down orders, take notes or adjust orders at a POS station.

What are the most important features in an eatertainment point of sale system?

The digital tab is the most powerful feature a restaurant point of sale system can offer. Digital tabs allow eatertainment operators to give their guests complete control over their ordering and payment experience. And because the digital tab travels with the guest, guests get to order what they want, when and where they want it. Two-way text communication is also an important feature as it allows the quickest way to clarify ordering questions and ensure the guest knows what to expect in terms of fulfillment time.
