Tracking Guest Count

 

Collect important information about how many guests are visiting your store then see what their average spend is! This provides valuable information about what is most important to grow your business. Is it improving your average spend per guest? Increasing traffic to your store? Or a bit of both?

This information is also useful for your service staff so they're aware of how many guests are part of each order, particularly valuable for restaurants.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How do I set up an automatic prompt for staff to key in guest count?

Partner your Guest Tracking with Kounta Tables for a prompt every table you open. Make your Tables screen your POS screen default (Register-Specific Workflow Settings) for an even faster order taking experience.

 

How do I change the guest count?

The Guest Count is stored next to the Order Note on the POS. You can edit this field right up until the order is checked out and paid.

 


What's my next step?

 

Most of our customers who use Guest Tracking also use Kounta Tables to streamline their table service.


If you need to manage different courses & timings with the kitchen, then you might need to look at Kounta Courses add-on.
