The Right Card Machine for Your Restaurant

By February 14th, 2024 No Comments

Here at UTP, we work with thousands of businesses within the hospitality sector. We provide card machines to restaurants, pubs, cafes, bars, bistros, and more! As a result, we have mastered knowing what your business needs. We pride ourselves in advising on the perfect card machine for your business and not charging extortionate fees for using the device. It is even more important to support small and local businesses this year as consumer spending tightens. This is not just a task placed on customers. It is also up to other businesses to be fair with their pricing and excellent when providing products and services.

Whether you are a fast-food truck serving delicious burgers, a family ran restaurant feeding communities with recipes passed down through generations, or a local business opening a second location; you need to find the right card machine for your business.

Take Your Card Machine to Tables with the UTP Pro

It’s 2023, and technology must no longer look complicated and dated. With all the time and love put into each business decision, from the colour of the walls in your restaurant to the menu font, to how each dish is presented, having a sleek and modern-looking card machine carries this high aesthetic standard into the payment side of your business. With the UTP Pro, you can bring a high standard of appearance into your card machine. People probably never consider what a card machine looks like until they see one which is sleek and elegant.

You need to be able to depend on the card machine in your restaurant to run smoothly during rush lunch hours and busy dinner periods. It is vital that can serve your customers with efficiency and deliver excellent customer service. Saving time giving customers the bill and taking payment will be a priority. The UTP Pro, through the multiple connection options of GPRS, 4G and WiFi, can be taken to any place in your business. If you have an outside seating area or multiple floors within your restaurant, you can accept payments at the table rather than your customers paying till. Restaurant experiences are all about feeling taken care of. For many of us who are looking to escape cooking dinner at home for the night, having the whole dining experience from your table without having to get up will feel like a slice of luxury.
