I-Control Hospitality, one of the UK's leading independent suppliers of integrated touch screen EPOS systems to the hospitality sector, has signed a deal with M1NT, the exclusive Knightsbridge members bar and cocktail lounge, to provide a fully integrated EPOS system with its Intelligent Receipting module, I-Receipt. The company selected I-Control as it was the only company that could develop an EPOS receipting system to meet the club's individual requirements.
Designed specifically for M1NT, the I-Control system is able to provide up to date share price and current turnover figures on the bottom of every receipt, which was a specific request of M1NT chief executive, Alistair Paton. In addition, the I-Control system provides transparency of reporting, automation of stocktaking and control, and immediate access to cocktail recipes via touch screen monitors.
Paton explains: "M1NT is unique, as it is London's first shareholders bar. All 250 shareholders not only benefit from the exclusive membership rights, but also receive a percentage of profits every quarter. With this in mind, I wanted to ensure shareholders were kept up to date on the share price and turnover, so wanted this incorporated within the EPOS system so it featured on the receipt of each transaction. I-Control was happy to incorporate this feature into the system."
The I-Control I-Receipt module enables real-time information to be added to the front of every receipt printed. For example, each receipt can include any information from share price figures, to the details of the next promotion or advertising campaign. It provides a way of encouraging customer loyalty and marketing the business through every receipt.
Comments Keith Rochefort, managing director of I-Control: "We installed three touch screen units, which are all connected via a wireless network to the back office system. Here the directors can track performance, stock and monitor customer trends through the orders being processed. M1NT also has our fully integrated Chip & PIN system with two handheld units."
