JacoBlu’s phenomenal success as a local beach club for “out of towners” (specifically folks from SJO) has led to a requirement for more POS terminals to facilitate order taking. Wait staff our able to roam the property freely with various BYOD (bring your own device) tablets that JacoBlu’s management team sourced independently. The BYOD concept of gPOS helps customers keep upfront deployment costs to a minimum.. BeachClub’s clients now experience a much better level of customer service in that orders are expedited. Waiters are able to take order on the beach, the order is printed at the bar/kitchen printers. Items are prepared and ready before the waiter even returns to the prep area to pick up items. This is truly “win win”. Sales have improved as has customer satisfaction.
Flutterby Hostel deploys gPOS/PRMS for its hostel operations
Kim and Pam, owners of Flutterby, have managed a thriving hostel in Uvita. Aggressive web presence and online booking services ensured their hostel’s beds and dorm rooms were always filled. In Q4 of 2013, the two decided to add food and beverage operations to the hostel to allow them to capture this extra revenue stream that would have otherwise been lost to other local businesses. Because of GeckoTech’s presence in Uvita and GeckoTech’s reputation the sisters decided to “give us a call”. gPOS stood up to all challenges the sisters throw at it during the demonstration and within a matter of days decided to move forward with gPOS because of its capability as well as GeckoTech’s support reputation. Flutterby House uses a single laptop for the reception area (hostel bookings and folio management) and a “BYOD” (bring your own device) tablet for the restaurant’s order taking. The beauty of the integrated gPOS system is that hostel guests can transfer the restaurant/bar charges to their “bed” folio.. Similar to transferring a restaurant charge to your hotel room. The overall gPOS implementation has been so well received, the hostel has decided to integrate GeckoTech’s gPOS to its CheckFront web service (online booking service). This integration is expected to be complete sometime in Q2 of 2014.
Arigato Sushi leverages GeckoPOS for its restaurant operations
Arigato, undoubtedly Jaco’s most popular “Casual Sushi” restaurant has decide to take the technology leap. In early October of 2013, Rudy (owner/operator) visited GeckoTech’s office for a first hand demonstration after hearing how other local successful restaurants had benefited from GeckoTech’s gPOS software. After a brief demo of the system itself and a more detailed discussion of the necessity of support Rudy had pretty much made up his mind that the benefits and ROI would be quickly realized with the effective deployment of GeckoTech’s gPOS. Arigato purchased a two terminal license. One license for the fixed-bar-terminal order taking, and the 2nd license as a mobile license for a portable tablet to support table side order entry. Two command printers: one for the kitchen and one for the sushi prep area, while the Bar Terminal’s receipt printer will serve as both receipt and bar-command printer. Saling has been smooth since the installation, and the owners are able to run reports from home at their leisure. Ahhh…. the wonders of the internet and a smoothly running business!!
