GoTab unveils EasyTab™, a new feature that helps servers and bartenders seamlessly link mobile ordering and table payment with traditional service
The restaurant commerce platform makes managing tabs – from ordering to closing – quick, easy and hassle-free
ARLINGTON, Va., July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Already at the forefront of contactless ordering and payment technology, the restaurant commerce platform GoTab today announced the launch of a distinctive new feature: EasyTab™. This feature, which leverages customers’ mobile devices, bridges traditional service and empowers customers by making opening, closing, rearranging and transferring tabs from bar to table quick, easy and hassle-free.
Designed to make the restaurant ordering experience even more convenient for servers and guests, EasyTab is an added feature that makes GoTab the most flexible tab ordering solution available on the market. Bridging traditional service models with customer-directed ordering, EasyTab helps GoTab operators introduce contactless ordering to their customers, guiding them through the hurdle of using their mobile device to place their orders for food and drinks. EasyTab™ is changing the way technology supports restaurant operations, creating more positive and profitable experiences, especially in restaurants with multiple dining rooms and hosting large groups or events.
“Operators are grappling with the double-edged sword of an influx of guests eager to return to on-site dining and entertainment, while having to operate with fewer staff. At the same time, they may be reluctant to introduce mobile ordering and paying due to the resistance of customers and staff to learning new operating models. With EasyTab, we effectively solve the problem. The result is an elegant transition from traditional ordering via a server, to ordering and to mobile payment, and vice-versa, depending on the guest’s individual preference,” says Tim McLaughlinCEO and co-founder of GoTab.
How EasyTab works
Customers can open a tab the traditional way through a waiter or bartender. When prompted to keep the tab open, the waiter (or guest) simply dips or swipes the card provided for payment and enters the guest’s cell phone number. A link to the open tab is provided by text and the guest navigates to the tab on their device. Now they can order, re-order and pay throughout their visit, from anywhere in the room. And because their payment method is automatically applied to their open tab, they can split or settle their payment without having to wait for a physical check or walk to the counter to pay.

Works seamlessly with GoTab All-in-One POS
Unlike other POS systems that force customers to close their tab when going from bar to table, GoTab tabs stay open no matter where customers venture. Where onsite restaurants dominated the scene, restaurants have adapted to business models that also include online ordering and third-party marketplace platforms increasing their revenue streams more than ever. The GoTab POS EasyTab feature takes the guesswork out of managing complex front-end omnichannel operations while integrating back-end operations.
GoTab’s all-in-one cloud-based point of sale makes systems used by restaurants more efficient and reduces major issues restaurants face due to staff shortages, managing third-party platforms, and time spent on multiple transactions. The company’s customizable and scalable POS is moving restaurants toward a smoother experience. POS can run on nearly any existing hardware (iOS, Android, or PC), eliminating the cost and time hurdles restaurants face when looking to transition to innovative, customizable solutions. From quick-service restaurants to midsize and fine-dining restaurants, GoTab’s POS anticipates the needs of restaurant staff and customers, so restaurants can spend more time anticipating their customers’ needs, improving customer experience and profitability.
EasyTab + All-in-One POS supports back office and payment processing
Using GoTab Kitchen display system and built-in printers, servers always know where to locate customers and deliver food and drink orders. Meanwhile, guests are free to roam and rearrange as they see fit without ever having to report a server, close or reopen their tab. When friends join the party, guests can share their tab using GoTab’s native features for tab sharing (via text or a QR code specific to their tab). When everyone is ready to go, they can speed up the checkout process by closing and splitting the tab on their own on their mobile device. GoTab makes the checkout process simple and transparent by clearly displaying all fees, charges, and tip recommendations.
