Preauthorization is built into the Toast bar POS system.
Bartenders can swipe a customer's credit card, securely save that information as their bar tab, and verify that the card is real and has a preconfigured amount of funds on it.
This limits fraud due to fake or stolen cards, reduces the risk of unpaid tabs at the end of the night, and speeds up service so bartenders can spend less time in front of a screen.
When liquor demand is high, sometimes you need to make a quick menu change on the point of sale. With Toast, you can add new drinks or ‘86 others with the tap of a button.
As a bar, it’s important that you can track food costs and liquor costs so you can measure the profitability of your items and properly track inventory.
Toast's product mix reports track which drinks are most popular, and Toast's inventory management software tracks which drinks are most profitable.
Your servers no longer need to cringe when a guest at the bar moves to a table. With Toast, moving a check from one table to another and even splitting checks by item or person is as easy as one tap.
With advanced bar software, you can identify the bartenders that are driving revenue and the bartenders that might need some extra training.
Even a crowded bar on a Saturday, with hundreds of orders an hour, is no problem for Toast, a POS system trusted by more nightclubs and bars across the U.S.
On your POS dashboard, see how bar menu and liquor sales are trending over time, including the days and times that you bring in the most customers and revenue.
At the end of the night, lock down the cash drawer and make the closeout process comprehensive. Plus, watch bar inventory to see if people are over-pouring for their friends or even pouring for themselves.
Bartenders can get quick access to customer data, collected from digital receipts and loyalty programs, to know detailed order history.
With loyalty prompts integrated into the payment process, your signup rate will increase by 10x. Toast will recognize the credit card on swipe, so loyalty accumulation and redemption is easy.
Easily sell gift cards on the tablet, text gift cards to the recipient, track gift card sales, and accept digital or physical gift cards as payment.
It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere. Customize your happy hour deals by item, day, and time, and even offer half price pitchers or other discounts with ease.
There’s no point in running a restaurant if you can’t take cards. Toast works even if the internet drops, so you never have to interrupt service.
We work around the clock to make sure your restaurant is running smoothly. That means 24/7/365 support… Or 366 on leap years.
When you partner with Toast, you partner with a knowledgeable, committed, and forward-thinking team, always brainstorming ways to help your restaurant grow.
With a large screen, your bartenders can see everything they need to take an order immediately, meaning less taps and faster orders.
These tablets fire orders instantly to the kitchen or bar and allow guests to pay, sign, and tip on the tablet. They’re perfect if you have a patio or a giant establishment.
Cash management is a breeze with Toast. The Toast system keeps track of all the cash that passes through the cash drawer and offers “blind closeout” capabilities.
Multiple floors? Outdoor patio? Beer garden? Don’t worry; you can use Toast in any venue. Meraki routers allow you to access the internet anywhere within the bar.
