Viableware Intros At-Table Restaurant Payment

Viableware debuted its “Rail” pay-at-the-table system that maintains the traditional look and feel of the bill presentation folder diners are used to seeing delivered to their table, with the added capabilities of a digital interface, at-the-table credit card swiping, on-the-spot digital signing, and credit card authorization. Allowing restaurant guests to self-swipe credit or debit cards, the Rail protects them from card information theft, while also enabling restaurants to streamline payment processes and generate new advertising revenues. This allows restaurant patrons to easily split bills or bar tabs, auto-calculate tips, and have a receipt emailed to them at the touch of a finger. The “Rail” also allows restaurant guests to securely manage their entire payment process – and when they’re finished, a small LED light atop the folder indicates to the table server when the bill has been paid.
