Bleep UK PLC, the designer, manufacturer and supplier of innovative point of sale solutions, has announced the launch of a new, cutting edge Self-Service EPOS kiosk after several successful trial installations across a number of high-profile venues.
The new Self-Service kiosk, the Bleep SS-821, has been developed by Bleeps’ own in-house, UK based team over the course of the last 2 years, and is designed to cater for the emerging demand of self-service point of sale technology whilst also complementing their existing portfolio of EPOS and Payment solutions.
Bleep’s SS-821 offers a new experience for customers processing an order or making a transaction in retail, hospitality or events environments. The purpose-built kiosk comes complete with a built-in touch-screen, intuitive software and high-speed thermal receipt printer – and can even have an Ingenico card payment device integrated to create a truly all-in-one solution. All of this is built into a secure, steel casing which can be branded with any individual company logos and corporate colours.
The large, vivid touch-screen, with it’s intuitive, user-friendly interface allows customers to easily navigate menus, products and screens, quickly select items (for immediate collection or pre-ordering for half-time or an interval) then confirming an order and making a payment. Orders from the kiosk will then be immediately sent to a preparation area, via a kitchen printer or kitchen video display, where they can then be prepared, ready for collection. The SS-821 kiosk also links to W-BO (Web Back Office), for live price and product updates and real-time sales and stock reporting, providing businesses with precise data and metrics on exactly what has been ordered, where and when.
Aimed at a variety of industries, including quick service restaurants, casual dining, fast-food, football clubs, stadia, theatres and anywhere else with a demand for user-friendly self-ordering, the Bleep SS-821 aims to increase transaction speed, restrict queues and improve ordering accuracy, whilst also increasing spend per head, maximising revenues and ultimately, reduce staffing costs. Unique features have been developed for each sector – proving the versatility of the device – including the ability to pre-order for half-time or intervals for football clubs and theatres.
John Wellman, Group CEO of Bleep UK PLC commented, “We are in business to offer innovative, integrated point of sale solutions for our clients in hospitality, retail and events industries. We believe that our new self-service kiosk achieves just that and is a ground-breaking development – in terms of performance, functionality and price – for industries such as, fast-food, quick service restaurants, football clubs, arenas, theatres and many more.”
“The SS-821 kiosk, developed by Bleep UK PLC, has been designed for fast paced environments with responsive touchscreen capabilities and an intuitive user interface, where customers can quickly and easily browse the menu, select items and finalise their order with integrated card payments. Feedback from the trial sites, from operators and customers alike, has been excellent, with benefits such as spend per head increases and a reduction in queues felt almost immediately.”
This new product launch is the first of several exciting new product developments rolling out in 2019 catering towards the mainstream trend of self-service technology. Bleep’s continued investment in research and development will allow the delivery of cutting-edge EPOS solutions and point of sale technology to any environment that has a transaction point.
