The Client

Vista bar and restaurant at Heights of Abraham

It is located on a site in the Peak District, Derbyshire that has been open since 1780 and which installed in 1984 Britain’s first alpine style cable car transport system.

The bar and restaurant area has been totally refurbished for the 2103 season and has a completely new look. Vista provides a fresh, bright area in which to enjoy Bites and Platters with stunning views down the Derwent Valley.

The Challenge

Rupert Pugh, Director of Heights of Abraham, was looking for a modern and elegant EPOS solution that would:

  • Look good and fit in with the stylish new bar and restaurant area
  • Be simple to use
  • Cope with the large volume of sales during peak periods
  • Allow orders to be taken at tables and print on kitchen printer


Result and benefits

The restaurant now has two 10.1″ Motorola XOOM Android tablets with AlfaRichi AlfaPoint software, a single receipt printer and cash drawer, and a kitchen printer.

The tablets take little space, fit in well with the modern look of the restaurant, and are used to efficiently enter the table orders, sell drinks and food at the bar, and to take the payments.

Food items that need to be prepared in the kitchen are automatically printed there and waiters can add specific instructions for the kitchen staff.

The cloud back office enabled the product data to be all set up easily the day before opening and gives immediate access to sales information — both summary management reports and detailed product sales and staff reports when needed.


Client Testimonial

Rupert Pugh says that the system was «easy to program» using the Cloud back office, is «easy for the staff to use», and «overall we are very pleased with it».

Although Rupert is only using the main features of the software, designed for pubs and restaurants, he knows that it has all the additional features he may ever need including stock control and ingredient control which he plans to use in the future.

The choice of AlfaRichi EPOS for a bar and restaurant is the best choice for the present and a clear investment for the future because the system is complete, user friendly and uses modern technology.

It is the ONLY complete and professional EPOS software for Android tablets available now.
