Aldelo Express Graphical Interface
Point of Sale systems are most often judged on their feature set. While a good feature set is important what is often overlooked is the graphical user interface or GUI. Without a really good interface between you and the features those really nice features go mostly unused.
Really good POS systems like Aldelo Express will spend hundreds of man-hours developing their user interface. Different layouts, colors and buttons will be tried in order to come up with the best possible combination to provide easy and fast access to the features of the system.
Aldelo Express uses words, colors and graphics to provide you understanding of the purpose of the button and a clue what to expect. This allows the software to “speak” to you via pictures and graphics. This allows a communicative interface where you have a need, the software gives you direction and you touch the appropriate button to get the desired result.
Its not uncommon that guest in restaurants want to combine checks and let you know at the end of there meal as they are ready to pay. Aldelo Express has this covered!

Aldelo Express and the Two Drink Minimum
The Two Drink Minimum is a staple at comedy clubs, night clubs, Jazz clubs and bars across the United States. Its intent is to guarantee a minimum food or drink ticket for each guest and help a venue recover the cost of operations at the same time lowering the entry fee to the club or bar. (Probably helps you laugh a little more at some bad jokes too). This is enforced by a variety of methods from upfront charges that get you tickets or tokens to trade in for drinks, to ticket requirements built into the point of sale.

Thermal Printers In Restaurants
Thermal printing takes place when a heated printhead contacts thermal paper. As the paper passes over the heated printhead the paper turns black at each place it is heated, creating words or images. Other colors are sometimes possible by applying heat at different temperatures to specially designed paper.
In 1993 only 5% of POS printers were thermal printers. By 2007 that percentage increased to over 34%. Today, almost all receipt printers are thermal and the number of thermal printers in the kitchen is growing fast.
