All the cash registers in this section are currently in use in take away outlets across the country. Take away cash registers vary in function significantly, hence the number we have listed here. The cash register that best suits your business will depend on a variety of factors.
One consideration when choosing a fast food cash register is the number of preset product buttons
. A lot of chip shops will need a minimum 60 presets, but many will often need more. Each of the tills in this section have programmable preset product buttons, which can be used as 1 touch 'hot keys'. The Sharp XE-A207
has 16, the Sam4S NR-520F
has 60, the Sharp XE-A217
has 70, the SR-C550
and Casio SR-C4500
both have 72, the one with the most is the Sam4S ER-940
, which has 110. If you require more than 110 or prefer the ease of a touch screen POS system then look no further than the Sam4S SPS2300
, which on our standard programming service has 400 prests over 10 different pop up windows.
Please note that cash registers specifically designed for the 'hospitality' sector, such as the Sharp XE-A217
and Sam4S ER-940
have flat keyboards encased in a rubber cover, whereas cash regisers designed primarily for the retail market, such as the Sharp XE-A207
or Casio SE-S100
have raised keyboard buttons with no cover. This means that that although they can be used in the hospitality sector there are more vulnerable to ingress from moisture, grease, dirt and so we would strongly recommend ordering with a cash register keyboard 'wet cover' as they are not supplied with one as standard.
Another function to consider is the number of printers
. All hospitality cash registers will have at least 1 printer, which can be used for either receipt mode or journal mode, if you need receipt and journal you really need a machine with 2 printers. Some of the 1 printer cash registers will have an electronic journal (EJ), but these aren't as good as a 'live' real time actual journal roll. Cash registers with two printers are the Casio SR-C4500
and the Sam4S ER-940
