Eat Out to Help Out

Discount Scheme

Some Businesses are finding it time consuming to calculate the discount but If you are Lucky and you have purchased SAMTOUCH EPOS System from us we have been upgrading the software for FREE.

All you need to do is press the eat out help out button enter the number of people and it will calculate the discount for you.

Introduction to the scheme

From the 3rd of August up until the 31st August, customers at participating restaurants can get a 50% discount on their meal, but not alcohol, up to the value of 10 per person during Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. There is no limit as to how many times the customer can use the discount in one day.

This is a very difficult discount to manage and requires the staff members to know all the rules and calculate the discount accordingly so is very open to mistakes. With this in mind, SamTouch has a new discount function that can be utilised to take the stress out of the offer; it will prompt for a guest count and calculate the discount for you.
