Order Entry Screen Bar Module User Interface
New bar tabs are started by entering the customer name using the on-screen keyboard or by swiping the customer card (when using integrated credit card processing with PCCharge Payment Server or Datacap NETePay).
Start New Bar Tab
Bar menu upcharges are defined for a bar category and can be used to adjust the price of each bar menu item for up to 6 variations. For example, white wine may be served in a glass, ½ carafe, carafe or bottle, where ½ carafe, carafe and bottle are set as individual upcharges.
Bar Menu Category Upcharges
Bar prep items and modifiers are defined on a category basis. Each modifier can raise or lower the regular price of the bar menu item, and prep items are used to alert the bartender of instructions or special requests, eliminating the need to enter commonly used instructions using the on-screen keyboard.
Bar Menu Category Modifiers
Bar menu category upcharges are defined for each category in Back Office > Menu > Menu Categories. Select the category and expand the Bar Menu Upcharges tab to enable and customize each upcharge button. Note that upcharges allow inventory adjustment for proper usage reports. For example, a Double upcharge may have an inventory adjustment factor of 2, so that 2X the amount is deducted from the inventory on hand.
Bar Menu Category Editor
When upcharges are defined for a bar menu category, each enabled upcharge appears on the menu item editor for each menu item in the category. The image below displays each enabled upcharge with a separate price. Note that the upcharge price is applied only when the upcharge button is selected before adding the menu item to the order on the order entry screen; otherwise the regular price is used.
Bar Menu Item Editor
Each bar menu item may be assigned an unlimited number of special price definitions, based on day of week (or all days) and time of day. The discount method can be a fixed amount or percentage.
Bar Menu Item Special Price Editor
Alternately, special pricing can be assigned to individual bar menu categories so that the price of each menu item in the category is discounted. As in the menu item special price definition, each bar menu category may be assigned an unlimited number of special price definitions, based on day of week (or all days) and time of day and the discount method can be a fixed amount or percentage.
Bar Menu Category Special Price Editor
The background color, text color and image for each bar menu category button and bar menu item button can be customized under the Button Appearance tab.
Bar Menu Category Button Appearance
A recipe can be assigned to each bar menu item for inventory usage tracking. Note that each upcharge contains an inventory adjustment factor to increase or decrease the usage based on the selected upcharge.
Bar Menu Item Inventory
Many options are available to further customize the bar menu module. For example, in a multi-terminal environment, a terminal may be designated as a BAR TERMINAL so that prep tickets are not printed for bar menu items entered at that terminal. In addition, any or all of the top buttons may be hidden if not required, and bar menu item buttons may be displayed alphabetically instead of by button position. Bar menu settings are located in Back Office > Configuration > Main Settings > Order Entry Screen.
Order Entry Screen Bar Menu Settings
Bar tab settings include the ability to disable bar tabs entirely, to disable preauthorized bar tabs, to enforce a default preset bar tab limit, which may be changed on a per-customer basis if required. Inaddition, bar tabs can be ordered alphabetically by customer name instead of by time entered, and servers may be forced to select the patron’s seat when starting a new bar tab. Bar tab settings are located in Back Office > Configuration > Main Settings > Order Entry Screen.
