Nolan Bushnell's digital dining experience uWink has upgraded its restaurants with customer pay-at-table technology.
Interactive restaurant chain uWink has taken another step in digitizing its sit-down dining experience with the addition of customer-controlled pay-at-the-table technology. Using proprietary software and credit card readers installed at the table, patrons can now verify the bill, add a tip, swipe a credit card and sign the charge directly on uWink's proprietary touchscreen terminals.
uWink's new pay-at-the-table software features a straightforward user interface that walks customers through the checkout process step by step. uWink's software securely captures, verifies and processes the credit card information and then prompts the customer to digitally sign the charge directly on the uWink touchscreen. The system offers the ability to email transaction receipts to the customer and record all credit card processing in uWink's accounting and reporting systems. This payment setup allows uWink to reduce staff in the area of cashiers and time spent managing tables.
Chief Restaurant and Development Officer John Kaufman said, "uWink continues to wow its customers by constantly developing and expanding its proprietary software in order to enhance the customer experience. Our new pay-at-the-table technology provides our customers with a very secure and fast checkout experience. With this latest innovation, uWink continues to execute on its vision of offering a 100 percent customer-controlled dining and entertainment environment."
