What are add-ons?
If you’ve seen the Kounta Add-on marketplace, you’ll know that the choices are plenty. However, there are several types of add-ons you will encounter. Add-ons are classified based on what they do and how they function.
These were built by Kounta. A lot of these add-ons are for supercharging your business. Need to track your wastage, discounts, staff hours or want an easier way to add that public holiday surcharge?
Then let me tell you a story...
Food Trippin' with his family has always been a tradition for Sam’s birthday. What he didn’t know was that Kounta was there every step of the way.
1. The first stop was an Asian fusion food truck in the CBD. Sam approaches and shares it’s his birthday. The food truck owner wanted to give him 5% off and was able to do so with just one tap. Kounta Adjustment Add-on
2. Next stop: a themed restaurant. Tables 1 and 2 had to be joined to seat all twelve. The waitress takes out her iPad and sees the restaurant layout visually. She joins together both tables under one order. Kounta Tables Add-on
3. Taking orders for 12 people may have been slightly confusing before, but not today. Effortlessly, the waitress takes all 12 orders: starters, main course, drinks, and dessert - no sweat! Kounta Courses
4. She sends the order directly to the kitchen. Kounta Bump Screen
5. Time for some drinks in a nearby pub. Sam and his cousins order some amber fluid and shoot the breeze. Even better - it’s Happy Hour! The bartender didn’t even need to do anything; the price change was automatic - super convenient for a bartender with a queue three deep! Kounta Automatic Promotions
6. This same bartender had to stay back to help clear the crowd but wants to make sure his time is recorded accurately for the manager. He ends his shift through Kounta with just a few taps. Kounta Time & Attendance
