From Tableside to Curbside: Adapting Restaurant Operations During COVID-19

Restaurants shift to delivery during COVID19 delivery guy using SkyTab device from Shift4

There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 outbreak is significantly impacting every aspect of our day-to-day lives. The restaurant industry has been hit especially hard as operations rapidly shift from dine-in service to takeout and delivery orders.

If you’re a restaurant owner, now is the time to optimize your to-go strategy to adapt to our new reality. SkyTab is a powerful tool to help with this transition. SkyTab is a pay-at-the-table device that can move beyond the table for curbside takeout and delivery orders thanks to its integrated 4G capabilities.

SkyTab features a user-friendly payment interface and supports EMV chip cards, NFC (contactless) payments, and traditional swiped card transactions. Customers can also add gratuity as a generous ‘thank you’ for your continued service during these trying times. Additionally, guests have a choice between an e-receipt or a paper receipt using a compact integrated printer. The device even includes the ability to collect email addresses so restaurant owners can keep in touch with customers during these days of uncertainty.

Shift4 Payments, the company behind SkyTab, has announced that they are giving away the devices free for a limited time to help restaurants facilitate the increase in takeout and delivery orders.
