Optimize exquisitely with integrated pay-at-table solution

Product: SkyTab 2.0
Company: Shift4 Payments LLC

Shift4, a leading provider of secure payment processing solutions, launched SkyTab 2.0, the latest addition to the company's line of smart hospitality solutions. Designed for the hospitality and foodservice industries, SkyTab is compatible with numerous integrated POS systems and foodservice venues, including Shift4's proprietary suite of business management solutions, according to Shift4 CEO Jared Isaacman.

Acknowledging that high-priced pay-at-table solutions have hindered U.S. adoption, Isaacman observed that SkyTab is rapidly gaining ground among restaurateurs and foodservice merchants. "SkyTab is the U.S. payment industry's first pay-at-the-table solution at a price point that makes it really compelling for restaurants," he stated. "With the added customer engagement features and ordering functionality that we have incorporated into SkyTab, we are confident that these devices will become ubiquitous throughout the foodservice industry."

Isaacman further noted that SkyTab's increased security and ease of use has enabled business owners to accomplish routine tasks and accept payments from wherever guests are located, including restaurants, bars, nightclubs, curbside, special events and golf courses.

Streamlined operations

Isaacman mentioned that SkyTab enhances Shift4's technology suite by providing additional benefits to hotels, resorts and solution providers, including the following:

  • Accept all payment types: SkyTab accepts EMV cards, NFC, mobile payments and traditional swiped card transactions.
  • Split tabs and digital receipts: SkyTab supports split checks, tip adjustments, e-receipts and printed copies via an integrated printer.
  • Pay-at-table, order-at-table: SkyTab waitstaff can order and reorder drinks, appetizers and assorted menu items from the device. Guests can check out directly on the device.
  • Satisfaction surveys: SkyTab prompts restaurant patrons during checkout to rate their service. Ratings that fall below a predetermined threshold will alert management, enabling business owners to promptly resolve concerns and avoid negative online reviews.
  • Customer analytics: SkyTab's e-receipt capabilities automatically populate restaurant customer databases, enabling owners to personalize future email marketing and loyalty campaigns.
  • Back-end management: SkyTab can be integrated with Shift4's Lighthouse Business Management System, providing access to the company's back-end POS management and reporting portal.
  • Optimized connectivity: SkyTab provides Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity.
  • Integration options: SkyTab is compatible with multiple leading POS brands, including Harbortouch, POSitouch, Restaurant Manager, FuturePOS, Oracle Hospitality and Jonas Club Software.

Partner, distributor resources

Shift4 Payments works with over 350 integration partners and leading hospitality franchises and chains, providing a comprehensive, all-in-one payment processing package to its growing family of resellers, distributors and channel partners. In addition to providing a payment gateway, POS terminals and API library, the company offers lucrative partner programs to ISVs, VARs and ISOs that include revenue share, large upfront bonuses and free EMV readers.

SkyTab's turnkey implementation includes in-house boarding, 24/7 support, risk management and end-to-end payment processing. The solution uses PCI-validated point-to-point encryption and industry-leading EMV technology. Advanced cloud-based reporting, accounting and auditing features are available through Lighthouse Transaction Manager, which enables users to add value and improve their customers' experience through secure, integrated payments technology. end of article
