Overview

As with most things OscarPOS Cloud, there is a heavy integration between the components. So making a single change, is “pushed” out to all of your Channels of Trade.

Blog Post ; Do It Once

Whether you just want to let Customers create their own Orders ( Queue Jumpers or at Tables ), want to increase the functionality of an existing web site, create a new online presence, or publish your own Mobile Phone APP, there are fully integrated alternatives that you can use.

Blog : Enhance Your Online Presence

Just want to create a “Queue Jumper” or “Quick Order” process ?

As a customer, standing in a long line of people waiting to order is frustrating. If I saw an in-store poster that said “Scan this QR Code and Place Your Order Right Now”, I’d be scanning that QR Code.

As the retailer, you would be receiving that order within seconds. Not only are you increasing customer satisfaction by stream lining their ordering process, you are also collecting valuable customer data.

In your BOM you will theme the cart to your style and colours. You will also add some tantalising images and descriptions.

You could be taking “Queue Jumper” Orders within the day.

Already have a web site ?

Just add the integrated Shopping Cart, theme it to match your web site,  create a call to action button that links to the shopping cart.

You can then take cash & card orders online and have them appear on your POS APP within seconds.

Taking payment by online card is a bit more involved, but we will guide you through the process.

Don’t have a web site or want to be able to control it from your BOM ?

The fully integrated Landing Page  is just right for you. It includes the Shopping Cart.

Ideally you would have a registered domain name that we will “point” to your Landing Page. To be able to take Card Payments Online, you would also need SSL. Don’t worry if you don’t know what they are, your OscarPOS Cloud Support Team are here to guide you through the process.

Your Landing Page will automatically create the policies required by legislation and your online gateway provider. Once your merchant account is approved, a few clicks and you are taking online payments. Until then, you can still do cash / card on site.

Want the full on MOBILE PHONE APP ?

This will also include the Landing Page and Shopping Cart for you to use ( or ignore).

Published under your business name in Google Play and The App Store, the MOB APP gives your business a professional edge that is controlled by you, through your BOM.

No matter your chosen option, you are the one who can change the layout, colours, ITEMS offered, ORDER TYPES, PAYMENT METHODS, etc.

You do this all from your BOM without the need to employ a developer for each COT.
