It is no mystery that since the start of the pandemic online marketplaces and cashless systems are booming. To adapt to the changing times, even food and beverage concessions, whether small or large in scale, are encouraged to venture into cashless operations. Going cashless will not only support the reopening efforts of concession vendors, but it can also help them attain lasting improvements.
For small scale concessions, adopting a point of sale system can be quite complex. For larger concessions with multiple users, it can get quite pricey, and it could limit their operational flexibility due to clunky hardware needs. But with ZeroTouch point of sale, they offer concession specific features that are easy and helpful for both small and large concessions.
According to Veenerick Vos Van Liempt, the founder of ZeroTouch, “ZeroTouch believes in the power of local community support, and concessions often play a critical role. We want to provide the smartest tool for volunteer-led operators and stadium-size concession operators for them to reach their true business potential.”
ZeroTouch’s app is rather simple. Anyone with a smartphone or tablet (iOS and Android) can process contactless mobile orders and in-person orders, without monthly fees or sign up fees. For mobile orders, their application eliminates lines at the concession stands by allowing customers to order and pay from anywhere within the venue and receive a text when it’s ready for pickup. And for in-person orders, concession vendors can finally start accepting simple card payments, including Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay.
Concession vendors in youth soccer and little league clubs, high schools and colleges, stadiums and arenas, and drive-in movie venues will highly benefit from adopting contactless point of sale features. According to a Visa commissioned study, a US consumer typically spends 25% more on concessions when paying cashless. Vergil Chames, a concession operator for Aramark in the Alabama University Stadium, says “eliminating our lines at the stand is the only way to increase our throughput and therefor raise our revenue, and ZeroTouch does exactly that”.
ZeroTouch helps concession vendors increase revenue and transact like a pro. Having to process less cash transactions means less worry about fraud. Their smart inventory and reporting features save significant time, and simplifies vendor’s accounting and reconciliation efforts. Without any monthly fees, concessions can upgrade their businesses anytime.
