With the summer fast approaching, people from all over Canada are preparing themselves for a whole lot of outdoor fun. And for most people, outdoor fun involves a lot of good eats! Barbeques, picnics and cookouts are all the rage all summer long. And so are those awesome visits to restaurant patios when you can eat a meal and go for drinks while basking in the warm weather. Are you ready for summer?
One of the main reasons that people love eating on patios is because it gives them a chance to socialize with friends in relaxing environments. Of course, it helps that the environments are outside. Considering that Canadians are generally forced to stay indoors all winter long, it’s understandable that doing as much as possible in the great outdoors when the weather is nice is on the top of most people’s to-do lists.
Restaurant owners love taking advantage of the summertime. If they have patio set ups attached to their restaurants, there’s no question that the upcoming summer weather is bound to have an impact on their sales. In fact, patio season has already begun! In Toronto – home to Canadian POS Corporation’s headquarters – people have already enjoyed a number of meals outside. From start to finish – eating on a patio is a good time.
Let’s talk a little bit about the whole “finish” part to the experience. Obviously, once restaurant patrons have completed their meals, they are expected to pay their bills. But they certainly aren’t expected to get out of their seats to do so. With innovative wireless Pay At Table capabilities, restaurant servers are able to bring their POS terminals outside to the patio area with them. That way, customers can pay with their credit cards and debit cards without having to go inside.
At Canadian POS Corporation, we offer the Ingenico Telium2 iWL220B. It’s a fantastic short range wireless terminal that provides a secure Bluetooth payment solution. It’s the perfect terminal for any environment where a business needs to bring the point of payment to its customers. And this patio season, you can bet that the Ingenico Telium2 iWL220B will come in very handy all across Canada.
When the weather is nice, people love to eat outside. Why should they have to go inside to pay? As well, why should they have to relinquish their credit cards to their servers so that they may go inside to complete the transactions? With Ingenico Telium2 iWL220B, they don’t! Customers can remain comfortably seated in the warm summer air and make their payments right at the tables they were eating and drinking at.
That way, the card remains in the customer’s control. This helps to ensure that cardholder data is never lost or stolen. Protecting both your business and your customers from fraud is one of the greatest benefits of our Pay At Table solution. For the record, the Ingenico Telium2 iWL220B supports a wide range of payment types including all credit cards – Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express – as well as Interac and gift cards.
Not to mention, it also has integrated contactless technology that allows for “tap and go” payments. If you own a restaurant with a patio, the Ingenico Telium2 iWL220B is definitely for you! Of course, you don’t need a patio for Wireless terminals to be beneficial to you. Most restaurants throughout Canada are enjoying the ease that comes with bringing POS terminals directly to the tables – indoors and outdoors!
